After India, Pakistan win Nobel Peace Prize, love replaces hatred on Twitter

Given that India and Pakistan are locking horns at the Line of Control in Kashmir, the Nobel Peace Prize for India's Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistan's Malala Yousufzai couldn't have come at a better time.

The relationship between the two countries have soured over the past few weeks with both countries blaming each other for the situation that has not only cost many lives, but also affected the lives of many villagers on both sides of the border.

India had refused talks with Pakistan unless the firing from their side stops. Pakistan has also insisted that India was firing 'unprovoked' and approached the UN over the issue.

While Satyarthi runs the Global March Against Child Labor (GMACL), a coalition of NGOs, Teachers' Union and Trade Unions, and the Global Campaign for Education, Yousufzai too is an education activist from Pakistan. She was the victim of an attack by the Taliban because of her progressive views, but she survived and refused to back down.

The prize for both the countries assumes significance as there were hate messages being exchanged only till yesterday on Twitter from both sides of the border with the hashtags #CowardModi and #BuzdilPakistan trending, within minutes of the announcement this went through a sea change.

Now people are tweeting out messages of peace. Check them out for yourself.
