The morning of 16 December was one usual busy day for children of The Army Public School, Peshawar. But this incident has changed many lives and lead many dead! 6 gunmen, who entered the school from the back and dressed in the Pakistani Paramilitary Force, opened the fire indiscriminately in the auditorium where the children were gathered for the school function. Killing children by going to class room to class room, which lead to the death of 145 people including 132 children.
The World was in grief! This incident united everyone against the Terror groups and condemns very strict action for this. “We share your pain!” India Stands firmly with Pakistan in fight against terror. Told PM Sharif we are ready to provide all assistance during this hour of Grief!” – PM Narendra Modi said in an immediate response for this act!
The Noble Peace Prize Winner, Malala Yousafzai said, “It’s the Cowardly act! I am heartbroken by this senseless and cold blooded act of terror in Peshawar that is unfolding before us. Innocent children in their school have no place in horror such as this. I condemn this cowardly act and stand united by the Government and the armed forces of Pakistan whose efforts so far to address this horrific event are commendable. I, along with millions of other around the world, mourn these children, my brothers and my sisters – but we will never be defeated.” The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for this brutal attack and it described this to be the revenge of the Operation Zarb-e-Azb, which was the Pakistani military’s military offensive which was carried out in Northen Waziristan that started in summer 2014.
The spokesman of TTP, Muhammad Omar Khorasani in a statement said, “We targeted the school because the army targets our families. We want them to feel our pain.” He even said, “Our suicide bombers have entered the school, they have instructed not to harm the children, but to target the Army personnel. It is a revenge attack for the Army offensive in North Waziristan.” They claimed, the Mastermind of the brutal attack to be Umar Mansoor. Umar who is 36 and is the most hated man in Pakistan and around the world for the attack carried out in Peshawar school. He himself is a father of three kids and he is the volleyball enthusiast. He carried out the massacre which took the lives of 132 children and 9 staff members, which is the deadliest attack in the history of Peshawar.
The parents weep hard. Their lives would change forever now. The small coffins are harder to take, says a parent whose kid got killed in the school. The grave digger said, “My tears were inconsolable for these kids. So many children, little yet innocent hearts have now gone.” Umar Mansoor said, “If our women and children die as martyrs, your children will not escape. We will fight against you in such a style that you attack us and we will take revenge on innocents.” The world is firm on taking this issue on to another level, as the Anti Terror act would be for all countries. The school days would not be normal for all the kids in Peshawar. We mourn for these kids. The worlds mourn for these kids.
