Glowing tribute paid to Peshawar school attack martyrs


Karachi: The perpetrators of this heinous crime should be punished in severest possible terms and exemplary sentences should be awarded to those ferocious beasts who took the lives of our children in a cowardly attack.

This was the unified message from the condolence reference held at ABAD House here to pay tribute to the martyrs of Peshawar school attack.

Speaking on the occasion, renowned social worker and human rights activist Ansar Burney advocated for unity of action among all irrespective of religion, sects, ethnicity or creed and said: “This tragedy, which is the greatest of all in the history of Pakistan, has awakened the people. Now we stand united with their army, police, rangers and all other law enforcement agencies as we have realized that only in this way they can save themselves from these terrorists who are out to destroy our generations.”

Sarim Burney the well-known rights activist and social worker said that the Peshawar incident had shaken them so seriously that no words could describe our grief and pain. The killing of children is not accepted in any religion and being Muslims we should be ashamed that the killers also call themselves Muslims.

Mr Alia Sarim Burney said that the killers cannot undermine our resolve to save our nation. “If the criminals kill our one son, our mothers will present another son for the defence of our nation. Even though our children are killed and we are in pain but our commitment has strengthened.”

Munir Ahmed Shaikh, DIG East said that ABAD has made a remarkable effort by holding the condolence reference to pay tribute to the martyrs of Peshawar. Due to the sacrifice of our children, we have united like never before. We have seen many crimes but this incident has shaken our souls. Even the worst criminals let go of children but these beasts were not ashamed to kill our innocent kids. DIG East added that the bill passed by the National Assembly will be a big support to help eliminate crimes and the criminals.

Mohsin Sheikhani, Ex-Chairman ABAD, thanked all guests for joining in the noble cause of paying tribute to the martyrs of Peshawar attack. He advocated unity of all and no compromise on principles. He said that we should not be afraid of any one and advocated to stand united alongside the law enforcement agencies to control the terrorist activities. He said that the nation’s lies in its unity.

Brigadier Khalid Mahmood, Sector Commander Malir, stated that the support shown by ABAD for the law enforcement agencies, specifically for rangers was remarkable.

He said that the Peshawar incident had brought tears of blood in our eyes. “No religion allows crimes against children. It is time that we should unite and put an end to these atrocities. We should strive that our efforts do not go in vain.”

M Junaid Ashraf Taloo, Chairman ABAD, thanked all for joining to pay tribute to the martyrs of Peshawar tragedy and called for united action against terrorists. He commended the present government for passing anti-terrorist laws and hoped that this would discourage the terrorists from carrying on their activities.
