Killing of innocent school going children in Peshawar should be Pakistan’s 9/11. If no concrete steps are taken by the Government, rather than announcing superficial show of support, like financial compensation or few days of mourning, then I would lose all hope in Pakistan. Heads of civilian and military organisations, responsible for the security should roll; it is as simple as that. If any foreign hand is found involved, they should be dealt with harshly. Children know nothing of propaganda; they do not sit at meetings where pros and cons of making war are discussed, they just die, paying the ultimate price, for policies or follies of their elders. Today I feel ashamed to be a human, a Muslim and a Pakistani.
