A condolence reference was held on Friday at the University of Sindh (SU) for victims of the deadliest terrorist attack on Army Public School in Peshawar. Prayers were offered for the departed souls on the occasion.
The condolence reference was held at Shaikh Ayaz Auditorium of the varsity under the chair of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Imdad Ali Ismaili.
Silence for two minutes was observed to remember the martyrs of Peshawar massacre while candlelit vigil also held to pay homage to the martyrs of Army Public School Peshawar victims.
All the participants were wearing black bands on their arms to mourn the national tragedy.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Imdad Ali Ismaili strongly condemned the cruel act of killing innocent people, mostly children. “We at SU extend deepest sympathies to parents and families of the victims. This vicious and inhumane act has been condemned by all in Pakistan and around the world,” he added.
He says, the departed souls of innocent students and teachers of Army Public school and College on Warsak Road, Peshawar, may not return to see their dear and near ones they left behind in tears and mourning but the entire nation is standing by the bereaved families in this moment of grief to share their agony, he said.
VC further said this candlelight vigil aimed at showing the world that the entire Pakistani nation was standing by the bereaved families. “We are firm on our resolve and nothing can deter us. This tragic incident is just stabbing into our hearts but nothing will frighten us to fight and condemn these terrorists,” he resolved.
He urged the government to take stern action against the perpetrators of the brutal act.
Dean Faculty of Social sciences Prof. Dr. Parvaiz Ahmed Pathan said: the destruction of a school leaves a long-term impact on growth and healthy development of children in Pakistan. Schools should never be targeted, they must remain a place of safety and refuge, he said.
He said government and law enforcement agencies should learn from past experiences and ensure security for all sensitive areas.
He said when Malala Yousafzai was attacked; people came up with conspiracy theories to justify the attack however it has now become clear that people who have been attacking students are against education.
Dr. Pathan demanded that in light of the incident foolproof security should be provided to educational institutions in all the provinces.
Prof. Dr. Anwar Khan Pathan said, “the tragic incident is a horrendous reminder of the barbarity and heartlessness which is the hallmark of terrorists. Yet such incidents cannot weaken the resolve of our nation”.
He said “Nation turns such tragedies into their strength and go on fighting with greater zeal and more courageous determination. Today we stand committed to root out this menace of terrorism from our land once and for all”.
He said there was no option but to fight terrorism in the country. He said this dastardly and inhuman act had exposed the real face of terrorists.
Expressing solidarity with the bereaved families, Dr. Azhar Ali Shah condemned the attack and demanded that the “hidden hand” behind this be exposed. He said all the forces against Islam and Pakistan had ganged up to crush the Muslims. He said the situation demanded that the national leadership, state and law enforcement agencies should sit together to meet the challenges.
He said terrorists could not deter us from our journey to enlightenment. “The massacre of schoolchildren in Peshawar has united us as nation and opened new vistas of national integration, peace and prosperity,” he said.
Another intellectual Inam Shaikh offered deep condolences to the bereaved parents and the relatives of the martyred teachers and army personnel. Condemning the attack he said he was deeply grieved on the incident.
He said both the government and armed forces should work together to eliminate terrorism while the nation will stand with them always.
Prof. Dr. Abdul Rasool Abbasi said teachers were shocked over the Peshawar incident. He urged head teachers in schools across the Sindh province to offer Fateha for the children and observe mourning by not organising any ceremony in their schools. “SU postponed its extra curriculum activities for three days following the massacre in Peshawar”, he added.
Dr. Abbasi demanded the government ensure foolproof security of all the public schools, colleges and universities as earlier security measure.
Dr. Ayaz keerio said the war against terrorism must continue till the elimination of the last militant. He said it was a cowardly act to target innocent children
He said the attack on children was against the teachings of Islam and the terrorists were committing kufr in the name of religion.
Dr Mehmood Mughal said it was highly barbaric to shed the blood of innocent people. He expressed profound grief and shock over the loss of innocent lives in the attack. He sympathized with the bereaved families and prayed to Allah Almighty to shower his blessings on the departed souls and grant courage and fortitude to the bereaved families to bear the irreparable loss with patience and equanimity.
Later on, special prayers were held there in memory of the children who lost their lives.
