Yana Mir’s recent speech in the UK Parliament has catapulted her name into the spotlight across the country, with clips of her address circulating widely on the internet. Her impassioned remarks have sparked discussions and drawn praise from individuals on social media platforms.

Mir’s speech primarily focused on debunking Pakistan’s portrayal of atrocities against Kashmiri residents by the Indian army. She staunchly rejected the propaganda perpetuated by Pakistan, emphasizing that she feels completely safe and free in Kashmir, which she asserts is an integral part of India. Her confident articulation of her views has garnered admiration from many quarters, with numerous individuals expressing pride in her for representing her beliefs boldly on an international platform.

Addressing the gathering at the ‘Sankalp Divas’ hosted by the UK Parliament in London, Mir called upon the international media community to refrain from perpetuating divisions among the people of Jammu and Kashmir. She asserted her identity as a proud citizen of India and distanced herself from comparisons to Malala Yusufzai, highlighting the security and freedom she enjoys in her homeland.

Mir’s statement resonated strongly as she declared, “I am not a Malala Yusufzai, because I am free and safe in my country, India. In my homeland, Kashmir, which is part of India.” She criticized Malala for allegedly defaming India by portraying it as oppressive and objected to individuals who fabricate stories of oppression without firsthand experience.

Yana Mir, a social activist and journalist hailing from Jammu and Kashmir, is known for her pioneering work as the first woman YouTube vlogger from the region covering political issues. With over 200,000 followers on her YouTube channel and a repertoire of over 165 videos, Mir has established herself as a prominent voice in the digital realm.

Born in Anantnag, Kashmir, Mir comes from a family with a background in public service, as her grandfather served as a policeman. After completing her education in Kashmir, she pursued further studies at Delhi University and Mumbai College. Mir is actively involved with NGOs dedicated to youth and women empowerment, showcasing her commitment to social causes beyond her journalistic endeavors.
