We helplessly watched the bloodshed of young souls and failed to protect them, we killed their dreams and left their mothers crying. When Quaid-e-Azam dreamed of Pakistan, he dreamt of a peaceful state, a state where children could attend schools and groom themselves for a better future. Apart from Quaid, there were many who stood firm and accompanied him in his battle for a separate homeland. They fought tirelessly for several years and yet we failed them. The ongoing battle against terrorism is not just the battle of the army or the government. We, the ordinary citizens are equally responsible for what is happening, all these years we remained quiet, we selfishly cared for only our own lives rather than considering the ones who were crying out for help. More than 140 individuals paid the price but now the time to remain silent is gone, we are united against terrorism.
