Alt News founders in race for Nobel Peace Prize

India’s well-known fact-checkers and founders of alternate media platforms Alt News Mohammad Zubair and Pratik Sinha are reportedly in the race for the Nobel Peace Prize 2022.

The Indian duo find a place in the list of “favourites” compiled by Time magazine based on nominations that were made public via Norwegian lawmakers, predictions from bookmakers, and picks from the Peace Research Institute Oslo.

As per the list, other strong contenders are Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Russian Opposition leader Alexei Navalny  and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. The results of the Nobel Peace Prize 2022 will be announced at 11 AM local time on Friday in Oslo, Norway.

The Delhi police arrested Zubair on June 27 this year over a meme he tweeted in 2018 against a Hindu deity. He came out of Tihar jail after a month after the Supreme Court granted him bail.
