KPK schools open in routine after Bacha Khan University attack


PESHAWAR: Educational institutions in the province on Thursday have opened in routine after an attack in Charsadda claimed 21 lives.


Attack on Bacha Khan University could not deter determination of young students against extremist approach.

All private and government institutions have opened as usual in the entire province when the nation is observing a day of mourning today.

Students in Government Shaheed Mubeen Shah Higher Secondary School raised slogans and prayed for the martyred persons before heading to their classrooms.

Almost surprisingly, attendance in different schools was not reported low considering the fact the parents and students must be traumatized following the second attack on an education institution after Army Public School (APS) storming in 2014 that killed more than 140 persons, mostly children.

The youth at school vowed to continue their efforts for a better Pakistan.

Four militants had attacked Bacha Khan University in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Charsadda on Wednesday. A PhD scholar among 21 embraced martyrdom in the assault.

In 2014, what is described as Pakistan’s deadliest terror attack in history, terrorists had opened indiscriminate fire in an army-run school in Peshawar. The loss of more than 130 innocent children left the entire nation in chills.

Pakistan s political and military leadership has vowed to continue spending resources for a cause that is bigger than any other, peace. Experts have repeatedly said that there could be no peace in Pakistan and the region unless war on terror is won in Afghanistan.
