The COAS said that “We have come a long way in failing terrorism as a nation.”
“United we move towards lasting peace and prosperity of Pakistan”, he added.
Today, the nation is remembering the painful massacre of APS on its fifth anniversary.
On 16 December 2014, six terrorists affiliated with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had stormed the School and martyred one hundred and forty-seven students and teachers.
Following the deadliest APS attack, political parties and security departments formed a National Action Plan (NAP) to eradicate extremism and terrorism prompting the government to declare an all-out war against terrorist outfits.
