The nation is observing the sixth anniversary of the unforgivable and horrific APS attack. On 16th of December 2014, six terrorists affiliated with the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban conducted a brutal attack on the school and killed 132 innocent students and 17 staff members.
Pakistanis have taken to social media to remember and mourn the loss of teachers and students involved in the tragic incident. Here’s what people are saying:
