AltNews co-founders Mohammed Zubair and Pratik Sinha nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize: reports

The world’s most prestigious Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in the Norwegian capital Oslo on Friday. According to a Reuters survey, the top names this year are Pratik Sinha and Mohammed Zubair, founder of Alt News, India’s fact-checking website. The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be selected by the five Norwegian Nobel Committee members. All these five members have been appointed by the Norwegian Parliament. Apart from India’s Pratik Sinha and Mohammed Zubair, the World Health Organization, National Unity Government of Myanmar, opposition leader Savitlana of Belarus are also involved.

American magazine Time has written about Pratik Sinha and Mohammed Zubair, ‘Journalists Pratik Sinha and Mohammad Zubair are the founders of fact checking website ‘Alt News’. Both of them are struggling to expose fake information in India. Sinha and Zubair are systematically putting an end to rumors and fake news spreading on social media.

In July 2022, co-founder Zubair was arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly “hurting religious sentiments”. However, he later got bail from the court.

The charges under IPC section 295A and section 67 of the IT Act were pressed for a satirical tweet he made in 2018, in which he shared an unedited screenshot from a 1983 Indian comedy film Kissi Se Na Kehna by Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

The Nobel Peace Prize was established in 1895 by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel. Alfred Nobel discovered dynamite. The Nobel Peace Prize is considered the most prestigious honor in the world. This award is given to the person who has done ‘the most beneficial work for humanity’. Renowned environmental activist Greta Thunberg is also one of the strong contenders for this award.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, French-born Alain Aspect, American John Closer and Austrian scientist Anton Zillinger were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. Each of them conducted unprecedented experiments using entangled quantum states, where two particles behave as a single entity even when separated. Their results have paved the way for a new technology based on quantum information.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement, “The ineffective effects of quantum mechanics are beginning to find applications. There is now a vast area of ​​research that includes quantum computers, quantum networks and secure quantum encrypted communications.

A key factor in this development is how quantum mechanics allows two or more particles to exist in an entangled state. What happens to one of the entangled pairs of particles determines what will happen to the other particle, even if they are far apart. For a long time, the question was whether the correlation was because particles in an entangled pair contained hidden variables, instructions that told them which result they should produce in the experiment.

In the 1960s, John Stewart Bell developed a mathematical inequality named after him. It states that if there are hidden variables, the relationship between the results of a large number of measurements will never exceed a certain value.
