The world community is in deep shock and grief as Pakistani Taliban has once again trained its guns on school going children. The attack on schools which are seen as canters of anti Islamic values is a key tactic in the strategy employed by Islamic fundamentalists to create an illiberal and conservative society. Boko Haram, the militant outfit of Nigeria is also infamous for their gruesome attacks on schools, burning children alive, kidnapping girls and making them sex slaves or forcibly converting them. The Pakistani Taliban attack on the Army school in Peshawar has left 148 people dead including 132 children.
SFI CEC condemns this dastardly and cowardly massacre of innocent children. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the people of Pakistan. SFI CEC salutes the students who, through their nationwide protest actions stood in solidarity with the grieving people.
