In a tweet message in connection with Aitzaz Hassan`s death anniversary today, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain said Aitzaz sacrificed his life but saved life of hundreds of students.

State television will telecast a short film titled 'Shaheedon ko Salam' tonight to honour the young hero, he further added.
