Pakistan pay tribute to APS Peshawar martyrs.

Today is the third anniversary of APS Peshawar tragedy as whole nation is paying their tribute to martyred children and staff of the school.

On this day in 2014, six terrorists entered the school and martyred 147 children and teachers.

After the attack, Pakistan civil and military leadership chalked out National Action Plan and started Operation Zarb-e-Azb against the militants in North Waziristan.

The day is being mourned today across Pakistan .

Meanwhile, celebrities, politicians and whole Pakistan paid tribute to martyrs of APS tragedy.

Nobel winner and human rights activist Malala Yousafzai paid the tribute stating 'no child should go to school in fear.'

Three years ago, 132 students were brutally killed at the Army Public School Peshawar. I think of them today and everyday.

No child should face extremism and violence. No child should go to school in fear.

Every child deserves safe education.
