Highlighting the government-sponsored murder of jina-Mahsa Amini and the Women, Life, Freedom protests, the Norwegian Nobel Committee added: "By awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Narges Mohammadi, the Norwegian Nobel Committee aims to honor her courageous struggle for human rights, freedom, and democracy in Iran. This year's Peace Prize also acknowledges the hundreds of thousands of people who demonstrated last year against the theocratic regime's discriminatory policies and oppression of women."

Kurdpa Human Rights Organization, while congratulating Narges Mohammadi, demands the release of her and all political prisoners in Iran who are incarcerated in the prisons of the Islamic Regime for their efforts to attain freedom. Additionally, this award recognizes all those who fight for freedom, justice, democracy, and human and women's rights. As stated in the Nobel Peace Committee's statement, the Committee considers this award as a testament to the women's revolutionary uprising, life, freedom, and gratitude to the protesters, the deceased, the injured, and the detainees of this ongoing uprising, which began after the government-sponsored murder of jina-Mahsa Amini and continues to this day.
