LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan on Sunday expressed disappointment over how poorly  Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government responded to Aitizaz Hasan’s death, Express News reported.

Hasan – a student from Hangu – tackled a bomber on January 6 who had come to attack his school at a time when hundreds of students were inside. The brave boy died while protecting others.

Speaking to the media in Lahore, Imran said he was proud of the teenager’s martyrdom and that he was a national hero.

He said it was sad that the provincial government failed to reach the young boy’s family.

On the occasion, Imran announced that his party will cooperate with Hasan’s family and take care of their expenses.

The PTI chairperson also announced the establishment of Aitizaz Hasan Fund.

IHRC award

The International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) on Sunday bestowed a global bravery award on Hasan.

An IHRC delegation visited Hasan’s grave and the family and condoled the death of the young boy.

On January 11, Hasan was honoured with the Sitara-e-Shujaat, the country’s highest award for bravery.

An official from the PM house said the boy’s family was expected to receive the posthumous award on March 23, Pakistan’s national day following the president’s ceremonial approval.

To the silly critics... YES .. PTI Govt was the fiirst to respond. But the response was not of the magnitude that was required. IK pointed that out. Understand the difference? If PMLN and PPP wants to go all out war... then what was and what is stopping them? Tells you how big hypocrites are the PTI critics. IK once again has made everyone proud.
