Paying tributes to 141 school children and teachers, mercilessly martyred in army public school this day two years ago, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said his party never recognised good or bad taliban or terrorists and deserved to be crushed with full force.
The youngsters represented the future aspirations of our society. The beasts mowed them down to kill our aspirations, he said in his memorial message to the victims of APS.
Bilawal said he fully understood the grief and torture of the parents who lost their children, since his mother Benazir Bhutto was also a victim of terrorism.
The PPP chairman said that his party had a crystal clear stance when it came to terrorism. “A terrorist is a terrorist and for complete wipe-out of terrorism every terrorist has to be eliminated without caring for his present or past,” he said.
He saluted their parents for turning their pain into strength and contributing to the society in the form of Shuhda-e-APS Trauma Centers in Peshawar and Lahore for treatment of deeply traumatized people as a sacred cause in the memory of the little martyrs. Bilawal pledged that PPP would fight the menace of terrorism with the help of the masses and would not leave those who cried when militants died. He also said that PPP would not spare those who fled when terrorists struck the nation.
