KARACHI: As the news of Aitizaz Hasan - a student who sacrificed his life while trying to prevent a suicide attack on his school – spread, many on social media demanded for bestowing Pakistan's highest military award Nishaan-e-Haider on the valiant teenager.

Hasan was a student of the Government High School Ibrahimzai in Hangu who stood up to a bomber on January 6 and sacrificed his life to save many others.

A journalist and senior anchor at Capital TV Nasim Zehra on Twitter demanded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to give this prestigious award to our 'national hero':

People from across the country also demanded that the government of Pakistan should award Hasan for his bravery and sacrifice:

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's chairman Imran Khan also tweeted about the young teenager that his sacrifice will not go in vain:

“I had never thought that my brother would die such a great death. He sacrificed his life to save humanity,” Hassan's brother Mujtaba had stated in an interview with The Express Tribune on January 8.

The government should announce a civilian award, Tamgha-i-Shujaat or Nishan-e-Haider, for his bravery, Mujtaba had further added.


ahsan | 8 years ago | Reply ungrateful and shameful of those arguing against Nishan e Haider for this young shaheed, one pretext or the other. He must be awarded Nishan e Haider if we are a grateful nation towards our heroes.
