PESHAWAR – The sixth anniversary of the Army Public School carnage that claimed the lives of 147 persons, including 132 children, is being observed today.
The heartbreaking incident occurred on Dec 16, 2014. The bloodshed of innocent souls shook the whole world. The martyrs included 132 students, including a principal and 16 staff members. Six years later, the pain of the bereaved is still fresh.
The parents of the martyrs could not escape the emotional effects of the heartbreaking incident.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan group had claimed the attack as vengeance which provoked the government to declare a maximum capacity war against all terrorist outfits. A 20-point National Action Plan was launched after the APS attack. Military courts were established afterward, now all six militants who were involved in the attack have been executed.
The military courts, established soon after the attack, awarded death sentences to at least 310 militants and 56 of them have been executed so far.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs also tweets in accordance with Black Day. The tweet states the incident as 'horrific' and 'barbaric'.
