Peshawar: Social Justice, Not Terror

We are shocked and sad, but re-affirm our commitment with the people of Pakistan.

They say the heaviest coffins are the smallest.  And 132 families, their neighbours, the city of Peshawar, and the whole world experienced this heavy load on 16th December 2014 when the militants from Tehreek-e-Taliban (Pakistan’s Taliban) opened fire on the Army School and killed 148 people, including 132 children.  

The assault was the deadliest Taliban attack ever in Pakistan. The Pakistani Taliban said the school attack was revenge for the offensive against them and they accused the military of killing civilians in remote areas where journalists are forbidden to go.

Since the bloodshed at the school, the government has promised that Pakistan will not discriminate between good Taliban and bad Taliban. The government has also announced that it will rescind an unofficial moratorium on the death penalty. Late on 18th night, the military announced it would sign death warrants for six fighters.
