KARACHI: Chairman, Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has paid tribute to the victims of terrorists attack on the Army Public School (APS) in Peshawar in December last.
In his special message issued by the Bilawal House here on Friday, PPP Chairperson said : ” On this Eid day, today, our thoughts especially go out to the martyrs of the APS Peshawar who were brutally gunned down by extremists on December 16 last year as well as to the survivors and to their families.”
” Over one hundred forty students, teachers and staff members should have been celebrating Eid like the rest of the nation had they not been assassinated by the callous enemy.
” We salute these young martyrs. They are our national heroes and heroines. Their courage and supreme sacrifice united the nation as never before in the fight against militancy. We owe it to their memory to take the fight to the door of the enemy and exterminate them from our midst.
” No words are powerful or soothing enough to extricate the parents and guardians of the martyred students from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. The sacrifice of your sons, daughters and wards is etched in the collective memory of nation’s consciousness, never to be erased. The nation’s thoughts and prayers are with you.”
