APS attack: ISPR's heart-wrenching video message talks about revenge through education

Song calls for avenging the victims of the deadly massacre by educating the enemy's children

Web Desk December 14, 2015

In a hauntingly beautiful song that will give you goosebumps and move you to tears, Pakistan Army has paid tribute to Army Public School massacre victims.

The video, released by the military's media wing Inter Services public relations (ISPR) days before the one year anniversary of the deadliest attack in Pakistan's history, calls for avenging the victims of the deadly massacre by educating the enemy's children.

Peshawar school attack: ISPR honours victims in melodic tribute

Just like the song Bara dushman bana phirta hai, children lend their voice to the song which talks about the importance of the pen and shows the undefeated spirit of the children who are on their way to school.


Mujhey Maa us se badla leney jana hai

Mujhey dushman k bachon ko parhana hai

This verse sends a powerful message that children are not frightened and that they are more determined than ever to end the ignorance that the Taliban are mired in by teaching their children.


No answers for revenge-seeking APS victims' parents

The massacre saw nine extremists scale the walls of an army-run school in Peshawar, lobbing grenades and opening fire on terrified children and teachers, murdering them one by one before being killed by security services.

US CENTCOM | 5 years ago | Reply The nation of Pakistan is set to observe the first anniversary of the terrorist attack on Army Public School (APS) on Dec 16, 2015. The terrorists left a permanent scar on the lives of many parents, siblings, and family members. When you read about how some of the families continue to struggle with the loss of their loved ones; you get a clear sense that many are yet to come out of the shock. The Peshawar school attack was one of the deadliest in Pakistan's history. No words can describe the evil nature of the attack. The terrorists claimed more than 150 lives on that dreadful day, and it is just heart wrenching to think that the children were the prime target. We can relate to the pain brought by the indiscriminate killings at the hands of the terrorists. The U.S. and Pakistan share a mutual stance against terrorism and condemn all acts of violence. President Obama again condemned the attack on APS during PM Nawaz Sharif’s visit to the U.S. in October. It is important to stand united against those who threaten the safety of our land and people. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the APS victims. We remember everyone who was taken from on during that horrific act of terror. The pain may never go away, but we sincerely hope that the loved ones find the strength to remain strong. Ali Khan Digital Engagement Team, USCENTCOM
