These shameless, idiotic, cowards ! They attack and kill children for their twisted reasons ! Monsters every single one of them. ! They deserve no mercy, and they are incurable.

Those who think talking to these monsters will solve any problems, should have their own kids put in hands of these butchers and then given the opportunity to "talk",

The real cure of this disease will be to ban all hate monger madrassas. Arrest any molvi who preeches hate before he creates twisted monsters. Instead, we still have right in the middle of the capital, this lal masjid, with its sadist leader, creating extremists... and no one dares lift a finger ! What hypocrisy and total nonsense !

The army operation against the terrorists will all go to waste, if the hate mongers are not dealt with equal strength and resolve.

Dec 16, 2014 12:41pm

Cowards attacking innocent children because they can never face the army only just pathetic attacks on innocent helpless people, may Allah kill them before they plan such evil attacks

Dec 16, 2014 12:41pm

That's so sad, Please save these innocent kids.

only evil can attack educational places. These terrorist must be punished and eliminated.

All Indians show solidarity with you against these terror attacks and share sorrow.

Is Sartaj Aziz still talking about good and bad taliban?? These characters are not even human leave alone being good or bad.Attacking army camps is one thing, attacking school children is another.

Dec 16, 2014 12:48pm

TTP spokesman Muhammad Khorasani tells AFP there are six attackers.

“They include target killers and suicide attackers. They have been ordered to shoot the older students but not the children,” he said.

I cried.

Dec 16, 2014 12:48pm

Very sad indeed. Cowardly attack on innocent children is a clear testament that Pak Army is giving a very tough time to terrorists. Proud of you Pak Army!

May Allah protect the innocent children

Dec 16, 2014 12:49pm

Our sympathies are with all affected people. See the irony..."They include target killers and suicide attackers. They have been ordered to shoot the older students but not the children,” Deceased are in the age group of 9 -14". What kind of devils these terrorists are?

Dec 16, 2014 12:53pm

@jahangir Khan This is not the time for politics. Atleast leave politics aside at such a tragic moment and let's pray for the safety of all hostages specially children. May Allah end this situtaion without further harm to anyone. Ameen

Dec 16, 2014 12:55pm

The school is totally administered by the army. Its an army school where children of mostly army officers study. TTP has planned it. We are ready for face it until the very last militant is alive on Pakistan's soil. cowards attacking children. prayers for the families.

Just for your info, TTP is coming to Afghanistan from Pakistan.

Dec 16, 2014 12:56pm

need to talk with them rather than keep on sacrificing our loved ones. govt must act now or its never for us and the other remaining inhabitants of Pakistan.

on political front its a nasty game plan whoever hatched it. .... ninjas are there.

How can these animals kill children and innocent people? Forget being called muslims, they are not even humans. Pakistan is paying a big price for US invasion in Afghanistan. If these animals think they are fighting a war, they should be MAN enough and fight our army. Our brave army is already teaching them a good lesson through Zarb e Azb.

Dec 16, 2014 01:04pm

Absolutely devastating news! What cowards, man. Targetting kids.

Dec 16, 2014 01:05pm

@jahangir Khan The terrorist attacks have reduced compared to previous years. 350 IED bombs planted were defused this year. That is a big achievement. Know the facts before you start criticising. However, KPK Police needs more improvement and more intelligence.

Dec 16, 2014 01:05pm

Being a father of two, I can feel the pain and agony this attack may have caused to the parents. It is simply not acceptable I dont know what our army and police are doing that the terrorist attack at will in Pakistan.

The children going through this trauma may not be able to take out this out of their mind through out their lives. This will cause a big stigma in their lives.

I would request Army Chief, Prime Minister and Chief Minister KPK to take full responsibility of this lapse and resign immediately from their posts. This is shameful. May Allah protect all our children.

Dec 16, 2014 01:07pm

Certainly this is an action by terrorists (local and international), who have no religion and cannot be passed for being a human race. May Allah bless the souls of the innocent and bring comfort to the families of the victims. Insha'Allah! Pakistan will keep on getting united, stronger and better.

Dec 16, 2014 01:15pm

ALLAH SUBHANAHOO protect every one from these zalims. v have to remove the root cause of all of this. Sealed border with afghanistan & proper education & trainning of all madrassah teachers & students so their is no distinction between school & madrassah students all feel part of one system. The question is who will do it. Our leaders dont even understand the problem properly so how can they solve it.

Dec 16, 2014 01:16pm

Women and children should not be targeted. Taliban, if you want to fight, do so against the military, police, bureaucrats, and politicians. Spare the women and children. Please. I beg you.

Dec 16, 2014 01:22pm

As a father myself, I pray for all the kids. This is inhuman. No parent deserves this pain. And for kids, its the unknown, do not know the brutal minds at play. As humans we are all in it together, pray for those scared little ones.

If these Terrorist think that they will scared us with their coward actions . They are wrong . We are all Pakistan . We are much More United than Ever . Sacrifice of our children and Army Brothers will not go in vain . We will defeat these cancer and we will wipe them out from every single corner of the Pakistan

Dec 16, 2014 01:28pm

@Viking Star This type of atrocity will continue as long as Pakistanis, all or a vast majority of them, fail to make honest analysis, the first of which should be to stop blaming external factors. Pakistani army may be brave but they have and continue to support these "strategic assets" with US conniving to sell their arms and keep their influence in the region.

Dec 16, 2014 01:28pm

I am thinking about Mumbai massacre.

Dec 16, 2014 01:34pm

Targeting Kids??? Insane.... Don't know how the parents and relatives of dead kids and people be consoled for their irreparable loss. This kind of incidences should never happen anywhere and to anybody... friend of foe..

May the dead rest in peace and god give enough strength to the parents to bear this pain...

Its our country who is burning, it's our people who are suffering, It's our Army who is fighting to save us and it's our people who are killing us. What should we do? Where we went wrong? We need to build up as a nation. My heart is so sad for those little kids who are becoming the victim of this terrorism.

We all are united in these difficult times. We have to crush all these terrorists completely.

Dec 16, 2014 01:48pm

Extremely sad and disturbing... This reminds me about 26/11... What they want to achieve by killing innocent children?

Dec 16, 2014 01:48pm

@jahangir Khan this is not related to party, terrorists may attack anywhere. May Allah helps CHILDERN upon their innocence. Ameen.

Dec 16, 2014 01:49pm

Such heinous, gruesome and fatal incidents cannot be tolerated and that too targeting the innocent students, we stand united and firm in plucking out the roots of terrorism. We condemn and deplore this coward and timid act of terrorism.

Dec 16, 2014 01:50pm

Religion knows no terror. Yesterday, it was Sydney attack. Today, children have been attacked in Pakistan. Any country supporting/or giving leniency to terrorists must be condemned. No country can support it without the snake of terrorism biting it back. My heartfelt sympathies lie with the people of Pakistan and especially to the parents who have lost their children. Also, my commendations to the Pakistani army in really tackling these terrorists head on! Hats off to the brave soldiers of the world who stand for harmony, peace and ultimate saviours of life on earth.

My God! I wish we never come hear such news again. Taking hostage of innocents and terrorizing the world through such heinous acts can not make any organization popular, wish the good sense will prevail.

Dec 16, 2014 01:54pm

@jahangir Khan

you and your twisted mind bringing politics even at this situation. Shame on your thoughts. However, it is cantonment area run and maintained by the Army.

Very sad,why innocent children,my prayers for the children and their family and rip for the kids.

Dec 16, 2014 01:59pm

No explanation by TTP will wash. Acts of this kind are sheer criminality. Pakistan Government and Army should treat TTP and other terrorists as unmitigated evil and take steps to eliminate them physically. Pakistan's GHQ should make plans to destroy all terrorists of all shades and descriptions and begin the job forthwith. The operation should go on until all terrorists are wiped out. On this, Government, Army, and the people shall be of one mind. Let's hope and pray that no further casualties among young students shall occur. vcbhutani, Delhi, 16 Dec 2014, 1429 IST

The terrorists have no religion. They only understand the language of fire and that is what should be given to them. It is also time for our people to understand the situation and ensure that anyone who ever try to defend them is taken to task and the society as a whole is aware of their ultimate designs and goals. Terrorism has no place in Pakistan or Islam

God! Please take care of the children.

Dec 16, 2014 02:03pm

@XXXX. This neither time or place for such comments. Your comment comes across as inhumane & insensitive. These are kids and innocent lives here in danger. Its time for compassion, leave hatered out for jihadis and for people who chose good/ bad jihadis.

Dec 16, 2014 02:05pm

What a barbaric condemnable act! And some trolls are putting blame on KP police just for political point scoring. While it has happened in cantt area under army police. KP is bearing the brunt of insurgency in FATA. May Allah return the peace of the region back.

Dec 16, 2014 02:06pm

To all Pakistani brothers and sisters we are with you on this sad day and our prayers are with the children that they come out of this safely. -peace

We all should blame ourselves as the politics is not our concern and because of this the corrupt rulers rules us and ruin complete system of our daily life.

This accident is caused because of weak police system and patrolling system of our country.

Dec 16, 2014 02:20pm

@XXXX. Operation against terrorists must continue. We will not bow down to such cowardly acts.

Dec 16, 2014 02:21pm

The only solution to this problem and all other prevailing issues is to give Pakistan on lease to the west or the United states of America for 99 years and see the development in Pakistan. In any case we are presently at their beck and call wagging our tails for them.

Sachha sardar
Dec 16, 2014 02:22pm

We in india strongly condemn the cowardly attack by taliban. If they are so called brave, face the man with gun. Using innocent children, unarmed, is something that defies all logic. Our condolences and all emotional support to the families. Very saddened.

Dec 16, 2014 02:23pm

Which ideology/religion approves the killing of 10 year olds? How can anyone justify this action? Why don't the religious heads come out in the open and declare a holy war on such nonsensical interpretations of the religion.

Kids! Damn it... They are kids. They are not Muslims or Non Muslims. They are not X or Y. They are kids.

My deepest sympathies to all the affected parties and to the entire world in general for letting these idiots go uncontrolled.

Dec 16, 2014 02:23pm

My heart goes out for these innocent kids. May god protect them from evil taliban.

Dec 16, 2014 02:24pm

This is really painful news. Kind of news that not only bring tears to your eyes but chills in your body too. As an Indian, my heart goes out for the families who have lost their innocent kids. This is shameful, not only for them but for the humanity.

Dec 16, 2014 02:28pm

"PM Sharif leaving for Peshawar to supervise the operation" - He should not get involved in the operational matters and his security will also disrupt operations against the terrorists. Let the Army do their job.

Dec 16, 2014 02:29pm

We must eradicate the seeds of this extremists from our country. Even those in our society the Molvies who side them must be dealt with Iron hands now. Its now or never. Do or die. remove these foreign funded terrorists from our society.

Dec 16, 2014 02:31pm

Pakistan should close all religious schools immediately.

Dec 16, 2014 02:32pm

india joins u in this painful time.

Dec 16, 2014 02:32pm

This is now getting out of hand, why would the so called Taliban attack a school, this has definitely been ordered by a foreign country. Its time Pakistan strike back and eliminate these terrorists wherever they are, either in the Tribal Areas or our neighboring countries. Enough is enough.

Dec 16, 2014 02:33pm

It's a very sad day and again 16th Dec. May Allah bless the departed soul. More then a 100 future nation's builder died.

I appeal to all those who comments, please do not politicise the issue. It's a reaction of the NWS operation. If you think KPK Govt. failed, I don't agree, as this incident cannot happened in other cities, as Peshawar nearest and natural target for TTP. Its good PM is visiting, I wish IK also visit shortly.

Dec 16, 2014 02:33pm

I denounce this brutality, cruelty and viciousness. Please wake up and be aware of the enemy of mankind. Some so called scholars have soft corner for terrorist we should recognize them also and we should stay away from them, and the majority of the scholars and people of Pakistan abhorrence them.

Dec 16, 2014 02:35pm

Which ever faith you believe in, please spare 2 minutes for the children and pray to your almighty to recall such defective pieces of his miscreation who have no ideology, who don't believe in any faith.

Such crime has no explanation , no logic , no principles. These criminals are are burden on Earth.

Dec 16, 2014 02:38pm

@aleem I agree. Arrest these Mullas and Moulvis for hate speeches. They are the worst enemies of the society. Instead of teaching Love and Peace, they preach hatred.

Dec 16, 2014 02:39pm

No words no comments for such violence, only we can cry, and wait for some supers power to stop these attacks.

Dec 16, 2014 02:39pm

COAS must send the commandos to control the situation in Peshawar. And all the politician must solve their problems, KP is not only belongs to Ik but this a part of our Pakistan everybody who lives there is pakistani. Leave the Derna and do some progressive work, there are more better things to do except Derna. save the lives of the innocents children and reply the Taliban in their own language. Our army can do and capable of doing. Long live Pakistan !!!!!

Dec 16, 2014 02:39pm

So sad. I'm fail to understand, what kind of demon these cowards are , who are not even sparing children ?

Dec 16, 2014 02:40pm

the final blow of terrorism on a country already crippled by poverty. may God grant them highest place in heaven and their families the courage to bear their loss.

Dec 16, 2014 02:40pm

@saad you should have asked what politicians are doing

Dec 16, 2014 02:41pm

@XXXX You could not be any more further away from the truth. What we sow we reap???!! and this comment has been recommended the most?! It's a heartbreaking and tragic to see innocent young children being brutally murdered. these talibans, extremists, isis and all are not Muslims, they aren't even humans! They need to be exterminated and wiped off the face of this earth!

Dec 16, 2014 02:42pm

What is the reason behind this????

"We targeted the school because the army targets our families. We want them to feel our pain," Reuters news agency quotes the Taliban as saying.

Dec 16, 2014 02:44pm

Very very sad incident, our hearts goes out to all those innocent who died. We Indians stand with you all during this crisis.

Dec 16, 2014 02:44pm

@Nisar if you read carefully you'll find out that the taliban is attacking the army school as a retaliation against being attacked by the army in North Waziristan. It has nothing to do with foreign countries being involved. Don't be too quick to judge before you know all the facts.

very sad news :( May Allah help us Ameen

Dec 16, 2014 02:45pm

@Vaibhav Bhatt I completely agree with you Vaibhav. I was in tears on reading this news. I felt as if my children are held at gunpoint. I do not have any words for those innocent souls who died - what was their fault? They were just trying to educate themselves for their better future. RIP my dear children - please ask god what wrong you had done to have that tragic end. People of India should share the griefs of the families rather than giving moral lectures. I, on behalf of my entire family and friends - not just in India but across the globe - extend my deep condolences to the families of the children who have lost their life. May Allah/Bhagwan/Jesus bring peace to the region. Ameen.

Dec 16, 2014 02:46pm

@raj they are not stronger than Pak Army, unless they are taking some dictation and directions from the foreign /Anti Pakistan forces

Dec 16, 2014 02:49pm

@xxxx- The families have sowed children, what parent deserves to reap this. Your comment is pathetic. I stand by the families who have lost a loved one today. I call these orchestrators cowards, too afraid to attack men you turn to innocent children.

I feel so sorry for children and their parents. May Allah give strength to family members to bear the loss. Also the politicians and Army of Pakistan must try to set its house to order. rather than focus on countries such as India, they need to set Pakistan to order and don't support terror organization. It is very Pak country and they should try to keep it Pak.

Dec 16, 2014 02:50pm

Really Sad! Breaks my heart, how could they target Kids, Prayers from India. Stay Strong.

Dec 16, 2014 02:50pm

@Taimur - there is no use blaming selfish is high time the Pakistan populace realise what has been sown and to correct it for everybody's good...they asked for democracy, they got it is time to uphold it for your coming generations...

Dec 16, 2014 02:51pm

We will never learn. My heart cries and fears that this attack is a statement by the terrorists and a huge one. 'We can breach your strongholds, your most protected of the institutions; everything else is wide open for us'. May Allah protect us all. Give this news coverage a week since the count is high otherwise our memories would have it faded away in two to three days and the whole 'nation' would have switch to the next 'sensation'. Watch the news in the evening and we will have a familiar sight of a N-league rep condemning and criticizing KP and Imran Khan for the dharnas and that would fuel the fading away even further. I wish we were not indifferent, I wish we had retained our morals and values, I wish we had learnt, I wish we learn.

TTP spokesman Muhammad Khorasani tells AFP there are six attackers.

“They include target killers and suicide attackers. They have been ordered to shoot the older students but not the children,” he said.

They are all children god dammit what are you trying to prove.

Dec 16, 2014 02:51pm

Though I am an Indian I am crying.

Yousuf47 London
Dec 16, 2014 02:52pm

It is shocking loss of so many young lives as it has proven that Government has failed and should tender its resignations. Furthermore when a government is elected through disenfranchisement of voters, it brings an inapt and a corrupt government into power with little or no money available to improve the police service or other agencies to protect the lives and properties of its people. Pakistan is at cross roads and people may want to decide if it is willing to give an elected government a chance notwithstanding how it got elected or appoint a Government of technocrats until reforms including civil military partnership are incorporated into the Pakistani Constitution. Our hearts go out for the departed soul and all those injured.

Dec 16, 2014 02:52pm

how could they do this ? how could they kill innocent children ? i am praying god to save these children and wish strength to their parents. i request pakistan government to take support of Indian Army to fight against taliban.

@XXXX you are a sad person.

Dec 16, 2014 02:53pm

My sorrow and condolences are with the people of Pakistan and the families who have had the light from their little candles extinguished by these inhuman and despicable lot. Calling them animals is an insult to all animals. Have they no conscience?

Dec 16, 2014 02:53pm

Very, very sad. Poor children, you didn't deserve this, your parents didn't deserve this. Another black day for humanity.

Dec 16, 2014 02:53pm

‘Barbaric’ is such an understatement for what these terrorist are doing. Seeing the pictures in television makes you ask only one question - Why these children...why???

Deepest condolences to the families, hope and pray that bhagwan aapko himmat de.

Dec 16, 2014 02:54pm

Very sad sorry to hear.Pray that children be safe

Dec 16, 2014 02:55pm

May God give courage to bereaving parents. India feels your pain.

Dec 16, 2014 02:58pm

This is what happens in our countries every day. How long is this killing and atrocity going to take the lives of thousands of innocent and poor people on daily basis.

Very heartbreaking to see school children targeted. If the TPP think that killing children whose parents come from the military or civilian population is jusitified for any reason then I feel sorry for them - killing innocents will not give you a golden pass to heaven.

Pray for a fast resolution to the siege and we save as many children and teachers as possible.

Dec 16, 2014 03:09pm

Absolutely horrendous. Our justice system has totally collapsed. Our justice system has supported terrorism by releasing terrorists. Until and unless their is no swift justice and terrorists are publicly executed in droves, this will continue to happen.

Dec 16, 2014 03:10pm

Very Tragic indeed.My condolences to the near and dear ones of the victims.This should not happen to anyone in the world.Again the people suffering are the middle class and poor.

This is every parent's dread - That they bury their children, instead of the other way around. Our thoughts are with the parents who are grieving or are worried sick waiting for their kids to emerge. There are obviously lessons for Pakistan, but then it is for another day. Right now, let every single child, who is still alive, come out safely.

Salman, it's front news on all international media. I am receiving text messages form Sydney right now, with people expressing their grief at this heinous attack against children in Peshawar. Please stop assuming nobody cares. The world cares! I think the #i'llridewithyou in Sydney and the response it has generated shows exactly an without hesitation that we all care about our global community, each and every component of this global community, and that we reject the way small groups of people are feeling entitled to killing innocent people.

Dec 16, 2014 03:16pm

Pakistan is reaping the seeds sown by the Army, Frankenstein strikes ..... It is high time that Pakistan stop all jihad i activities whether it is good Taliban or bad Taliban and so called Kashmir mujahedin.

Dec 16, 2014 03:17pm

These coward Taliban has no relation with Islam. They can't fight with solders that's why taking revenge from children. Our duty is to help our forces to eradicate them. May Allah bless our children and peoples.

Unless you are made of stone or are pushing Taliban agenda, I don't see how you could post such comments when the attack is still ongoing

Dec 16, 2014 03:25pm

for gods sake u foolish pakistanis, leave kashmir demad. ur fooloish support to mad politicains is only responsible fr al ur plights. u sheltered terrorist to attack india, and they r hitting u now. root of all mishappening today is kashmir issue. pak politician and religious leaders r using u. its already 6 decades now of this foolishness. wake up. i kno its hard fr u, as u r programmed frm childhood to believe kashmir is urs and india is an enemy, BUT ITS NOT TRUE. we indians wants a stable and safe pak. But strangly u r just not ready to accept it. bechare bacho ne kya bigada tha in logo ka, or to show u mirror, bechare bacho ne kya bigada h tumhara, kyon marwa rahe ho inko, kyo zeher bhar rahe ho inke dimag me bhi. its gud u r condeming this attack on children, wt r u doing to stop it, NOTHING. apply logic and think why r ufacing this deadly situation today, just for kashmir? isn't it a very bad deal.

Animals who perpetrated such an attack must be hanged...along with everybody who supported and harbored such people. And please don't bring that 'these people cannot be muslim' kind of sillyness to the debate. Those animals consider themselves more Muslim than the sad people here.

Why Pakistani people have soft corner for these extremely religious and staunch Muslim terrorists is a puzzle to me. Probably they assume that these terrorists are needed to kill the people from 'evil' neighboring country. Wrong.

Pakistan must eradicate ALL terrorists and have a total ban on weapons. Religion cannot make people good or bad so keep the religion on the backburner and get rid of these highly religious extremists.

These so called Talibans are none other than their puppets!!!

Dec 16, 2014 03:31pm

The ill timed dharnas and unending protests on alleged rigging on four worthless national assembly seats has distracted the whole nation from its real problems. This unfortunate and tragic incident should be a wake up call for all of us to set our priorities right.

Dec 16, 2014 03:31pm

By reading this i am thinking abt my 1 year child, what is the mistake of their parents.Dear Pakistani brothers there is no good or bad terrorist. plz understand before its too late. Deep condolence from india !

Dec 16, 2014 03:31pm

Very unfortunate. Killings like this can never by justified. Must be condemned. Pakistan need to learn. Here terrorists move free and they are called jehadis. Stop this nonsense now.

Dec 16, 2014 03:32pm

Please government of Pakistan, shoot in public all those taliban terrorist who are in a death row mid of the day, so that they learn lesson, if you are scared of them, then you do not have right to govern the country.

Dec 16, 2014 03:33pm

Very tragic! PTI must stop all sorts of protests and dharmsala so that govt., security forces and people could unite to act in unison to control terrorism, a war of country' survival.

Such a shameful act by terrorist. We Indians condemn it. It is regretful act and no place in the civilized society. Pakistan should act to eliminate such snakes which they milked hoping they would bite India but they are now biting them.

If not for your Indian brothers and sisters, then let them finish for your own people (if Pakistan establishment cares for their common people).

@raj Do you think they are really taliban ? NO muslim can even think about conducting such operation against children.

We just believe what Media says. Why we are afraid of saying truth. These type of armed Terrorists gets trainning and support from RAW, CIA and Mossad, they don't belong to any religion.

Dec 16, 2014 03:33pm

It is so sad an event that there are no words to express condolences. These kids did not get the opportunity to live their human lives. What condition must their bereaved parents be today ! No words for consolation. But, I am really disgusted with Pakistan. What result the country expects by feeding milk to snakes? Terrorist have no religion. Terrorists have no division, such as good or bad. Eliminate them all one by one, from Peshawar to AJK.Please do not leave a single stone unturned if you want peace and prosperity for the future generation of Pakistan.

Dec 16, 2014 03:33pm

It's very sad for not only Pakistan People but also the whole world

Dec 16, 2014 03:33pm

This is awful. This shows that terrorists have no limits. Sensible people rise up and fight these devils together. These devils have hijacked religions and are killing innocent people, including children.

Dec 16, 2014 03:33pm

@Naveed Alam Khattak your military has been coward, waging proxy war against India in same cowardice manner. You are reaping what you sowed.

I mentioned this a few weeks ago when it was announced that Kenya will be touring pakistan for an ODI, my concern at thqt time was also that when the Afghans and the Indians read this good news they will do something to give a bad image about Pakistan, look at what has happened now, as these terrorists cannot attack freely in the rest of Pakistan like a Lahore, Islamabad or Karachi... They have gone for the weeakest link which it seems to be a Peshawer, the Pakistan Army needs to do something to tackle this. enough is enough, we should send a strong signal to couple and deli and tell them that they cannot just attack pakistan because they do not like the government.

Dec 16, 2014 03:41pm

@Thiru I would partially agree with you. External Factors cant be and should not be blamed all the time BUT one can not rule them out. As for Pak Army / US, one can not deny history and facts. Things were so different until the US invaded Afghanistan, the latter WAS a strategic asset for Pakistan. The whole world was behind US/Pakistan during USSR occupation of Afghanistan. It is so unfortunate that after the USSR disintegrated, the US became the only super power and Cop of the world. A small country like Pakistan had no choice but to give a nod to anything and everything the Cop said. Any country in place of Pakistan would have done so (under pressure). Now Pakistan is paying the price of supporting US. The US, even with the help of many other powers was not able to accomplish its job in over 10 years in Afghanistan, and even after 1000s of drone strikes in Waziristan. Now they are packing bags (as if they did wonders)....but the problem is still there as it stood in the 1st place (also as in case with Iraq). Pakistan is now prone to such attacks by Afghan/Pak militants who were against US invasion of Afghanistan.

My dear Pakistani friends, I am from India and today when I watched on television the killing of innocent children, I couldn't stop myself from crying for at least 5 minutes( and doing so while I write this message). Let us accept that terrorism is the single menace that needs to be addressed effective immediately. It knows no religion and it can affect people from any race,ethnicity,age,gender etc. Those little kids were as innocent as birds and knew nothing about terrorism and what it can do to them. They were going to school in order to become good human beings so that they could contribute towards the growth of mankind. We the people of India are with you during this tough times and will continue to pray for lasting peace for all of us. May the almighty god shower peace on all of us human beings.

Dec 16, 2014 03:42pm

@Irfan UK by asking that you are inviting invertigators to your home. Come and fight, dont kill innocent children.

Dec 16, 2014 03:42pm

my heart is goes down. A barbaric act . Even animals are better then human beings.

Dec 16, 2014 03:43pm

​i have a 3 year old son & i cant see even small scratch on his body. i don't know how parents of this attacked school is feeling now. I pray god to deliver this children's to their parents safe & scratchless​

Dec 16, 2014 03:43pm

@Zeeshan True brother, My wife just called and was shocked to see the news of more than 120 children killed brutally, I can understand how shocking it could be for Pakistanis.. Most Indian news channels are showing this as a breaking news, and people are stuck with grief here too. Believe me or not, Indians hate Pak establishment, but love you comman people as their own (even hindus, I am a Hindu) and this is very disheartening. I am sure I would not have felt this deep sadness if it happened in some American school, I dont know why. May God give strength to Pakistan and the people.

Dec 16, 2014 03:45pm

Dec 16, 2014 03:45pm

In the 67 years of our history, there was no true democracy in the region, with power shuffling between dictators and pseudo democratic parties who in turn have affiliations to rogue elements, just for political gains. Pakistan Civil society must be strengthened.!!! Unfortunately it will take equally long time to undo the 67 years of mismanagement and rebuild the country safe for every citizen irrespective of their language, ethnicity, religion or customs. There is no justification to butcher innocent kids, be it religion or power. Lets raise above these and restore humanity first.

Dec 16, 2014 03:45pm

Taliban, ISIS, Lashkar can never be anyone's friends. There agenda under the head of ISLAM is hollow. They have no morals ..... Pakistan should stop supporting these Kids Killers even against India for Kashmir! They are cant believe feed them but one day they bite you back! Deepest condolences for the Kids and there families!! I would True Face of Islam to stand up and teach Jihad is not about killing innocents! Jiahd is more about killing the demon self within every mortal! I am an Indian and I am really pained to c how brutally innocent children have been killed!!!

Dec 16, 2014 03:46pm

These guys are not human. How they can kill innocent children? Paying for safety of injured persons. This is barbaric attack on humanity and whole world is with Pakistan against these brain washed hate mongers.

may Allah guide us to stand united................. our Govt must respond with heavy non-stop and relentless attacks on TTP hideouts .... border should be sealed with Afghanistan with immediate effect.

Dec 16, 2014 03:47pm

Declare a full war against terror and don't stop until it's eradicated. There is nothing more important that this at the moment for pakistan.

Dec 16, 2014 03:48pm

Shocked beyond belief......we are watching it all onTV live in Bangalore. Is there some way we Indians can mobilise blood to be sent for the kids who need it? from cities close to Pakistan, delhi, amritsar etc? Hope spme of our politicians take the lead to do this. There is something we need to do to help.....

Dec 16, 2014 03:50pm

Going to Peshawar to supervise the operation is not going to help Mr Sharif. On the contrary it will be a diversion for Armed forces who would have to devote resources to your security instead of concentrating on helping children, families and local authorities. Its time you did something serious to contain the menance.

Dec 16, 2014 03:50pm

Very said incident and our sympathies are with family of those children who lost their life's. Now the government have to be more vigilant, because this act of terrorism, indicates end of these so called terrorist organizations and they don't have place and desperately targeting innocent people.

Action against illegal immigrants and refugees needs to be take as soon as possible. There is question for the law enforcement agencies that how they came inside the city? where they stayed inside the city? who all supported these terrorist? Re-assess the security parameter including loopholes in intelligence network and re-org the network. Good bless our country and Pakistani nation. Ameen

All readers are condemning this cruel act. Most Pakistani people & the Pak government hate terrorism. Then why Pakistan is still a fertile land for terrorism? There must be some wrong in the system and sincerity in efforts to wipe these terrorists. I am so sad that Pakistan is loosing a chance of joining 'Developing Countries' mainly because of this. Religion is not above humanity. Terrorists are spreading a bad impression about the Islam. Please for the God's sake please stop this & let the people of Pak live with peace and prosperity. Common man needs food, cloth,shelter, dignity, peace, prosperity. What we are achieving by such terrorism? Pak has given a Kohinoor like Malala to the world. Pak should be proud of it and not about such coward terrorists.

Dec 16, 2014 03:52pm

when i read this news, my body shivered. My son face moved in front of eyes. It was so shocking. I cant even imagine. Those were innocent kids. We are feeling the pain in India. To TTP even if they killed ur families, even then this massacre not justified. kill those who killed ur family not these innocent kids.

Dec 16, 2014 03:52pm

Nothing can ever ever explain this senseless killing. The Pakistani Army should bomb the Pakistani Taliban till nothing is left of them. Everything is explainable, but if you touch children, that means these guys got no souls at all.

This is not a time of politics, of back-biting or blame game of any sort. The rest of the children should be saved and a deep soul searching is required by Pakistani' has things come to such a pass ? Is this the sort of country you want to leave behind for your children ?

Dec 16, 2014 03:53pm

Very Sad. Shame on terrorist to have targeted innocent children. deep sympathies with parents who have lost their loved ones. Terrorism is a menace and it is high time that all of us identify the real enemy and eradicate this evil from the face of our civilization. All terrorist are bad and all act of terrorism are to be condemned.

Dec 16, 2014 03:53pm

Nowhere it is safe in Pakistan, even children are not safe, what kind of God and its followers are these? Everywhere in the world known as terrorists. You give protection to Taliban, Hafeez saeed, Lashkar-e-Taiba and so on. what are you going to reap? Please for these children sake, understand what is wrong with your country.

Why do these terrorists thrive and operate from Islamic countries (particularly Middle-east and Maghreb), governments not to the liking of people? Islam gets a very bad name because of terrorism! Would anybody like to visit Pakistan, US or Chinese premier? Would any sporting nation wants to participate in any sporting event in Pakistan? Perhaps, terrorists want to annihilate Pakistan and kill its gen next, the children! Would Pakistan get rid of the cancer of terrorism?

Dec 16, 2014 03:56pm

It is a very sad day for the ALL. I hope we all learn something from this. Corrupt government and terrorist do not belong to any religion, country or human race. How low they can go in their life to kill little souls. We need to be ALL together to make this World peaceful. RIP soul of HEROS who have sacrificed their life for this cause.

This is the time Pakistan Army should wipe out the terrorists from their land rather than talk to them and support them in any way they do.

Dec 16, 2014 04:06pm

A very shamelful and coward act. Terrorism is no good to any country and i hope Pakistan realises this - more important ISI, Military. This is similar to 26/11 Mumbai attack all planned and executed from Pakistani Soil. Now what Mr Hafeez Saeed has to say on this?. Pakistan has to realise that there is nothing like good and bad terror. This people are fighting as it is their business. If they can point Gun to India they can point gun to Pakistan also tomorrow. Your state has to stop all support to terror activities in western border and adopt a policy which is towards better tomorrow and peaceful life. dont have dual policies. dont support folks like Hafeez Saeed and other so called Jihadis.

Dec 16, 2014 04:06pm

Very SAD, Shame on Terrorist and their AAKAS. Is this their religion? Are they followers of GOD? Our Hearty sympathy with the families who lost their loved ones. Any person should not support this type of terrorist activities directly or indirectly.
This incident proves that Weapons are worst thing if they are not in proper hands.

We in India share your grief and pray that let good sense prevail on hardliners and anti Pakistan, Anti India and Anti Humanity elements who believe in preaching and propagating violence, and think that anything and everything could be corrected and achieved by violent Jihad. Civil and sane society of Pakistan is requested to condemn violence perpetrated in Indian Kashmir too by state and non-state actors from Pakistan. Violence and radicalism has made this whole piece of land very very poor.

your government is no more - too many taliban/isis sympathisers. Sympathisers should be dealt with immediately. Alternatively - its time to hire out blackwater if your army cannot cope. All the taliban devils must die (good and bad ones).

wake up. you can fix this!

who cares about cricket and hockey - your own people are playing a much more dangerous "devil" sport..

Had this happened in the USA they would have bombed TTP inside Afghanistan. We should do the same and send boots on Afghanistan soil to root out TTP

Dec 16, 2014 04:20pm

Sad indeed, most of you hate Malalai and try to condemn this act. She too was hit by bullet for her bravery, I see a double standard, either these cowards are classified as good and bad ones.

Dec 16, 2014 04:20pm

How can the Taliban call themselves muslims when Islam clearly prohibits such acts such as Killing innocent children

Dec 16, 2014 04:20pm

Shame that people will do politics over innocent people killed and blame IK. Ask anyone living in KP, the police in 100 times better than in Punjab.

Dec 16, 2014 04:21pm

@Rohan what nonsense are you talking about, you should be ashamed of your self that at this point the whole nation is morning due to innocent killings and you have come up again criticizing Pakistan, open up ur mind if u have one and try to understand that we are not cultivating terrorism infact we are the victim of terrorism.

God bless Pakistan, and may all the innocent lives find peace in Jannah! Ameen

Dec 16, 2014 04:21pm

This is really painful news. Kind of news that not only bring tears to your eyes but chills in your body too. As an Indian, my heart goes out for the families who have lost their innocent kids. This is shameful, not only for them but for the humanity. We must be stand with the family of victim.

Dec 16, 2014 04:21pm

It gave me chills. We all need to get involved into it practically. We need to report about the people having extremist ideology (even if they are our loved ones) to police. Bear in mind that tomorrow it could be mine or your child!

Dec 16, 2014 04:21pm

The TTP are evil in pure form. The Afghanistan filth has spread to Pakistan.

Dec 16, 2014 04:23pm

No words to express sorrow and grief. Those misguided who had any or little sympathy with these terrorist should see the real face of these animals.

Dec 16, 2014 04:23pm

@Raheel PML-N created? Dude which dimension are u living in. I am not a PML-N supporter but atleast get your facts right and dont say magically absurd things !

Heartfelt solidarity from a father of 2 kids across the border in India. May Allah give strength to the grieving parents and sanity to the misguided souls for this is not the path any religion could lead to.

My heart bleeds for the innocent kids and my deep sympathies to their parents and family members. Taliban are nothing but deadly virus, needs to be cleansed else will destroy all of us. Afghanistan evidenced similar attack a few weeks back at a Volleyball stadium killing 66 kids. So let us stand together, work together and get rid of this barbarism, else day will come, that such news would repeat daily.

Dec 16, 2014 04:29pm

Where is the humanity? Can these guys be called human? I am sure this would make resolve of Pakistani people and security forces stronger to finish terrorists for ever.

Dec 16, 2014 04:31pm

@Kaly I am so moved and impressed by comments from Indian readers which indicate that they fully share our grief and treat the besieged and helpless children as if they are their own. The spirit of solidarity shown at the Nobel awards ceremony less than a week ago is resonating again. While our Prime Ministers did not respond to Malala's appeal to show the solidarity with the children, who are not only deprived of the right to education, the children are paying the price of seeking that right in flesh and blood by violence, extremism, hatred , ignorance and bigotry. It is about time that the people of both countries rise together to stop the madness which their political and military leaders have dragged into. Only a joint action can ensure our children's future. The crux of terrorism in India and Pakistan stems from the hatred between the two peoples that has been promoted by vested interrests in both countries.

Dec 16, 2014 04:32pm

" feel that until and unless this country is cleansed from terrorism, this war and effort will not stop, no one should be doubtful of this. "

ANd that will never happen. The more you kill.. the more families will be broken.. and more fighters will stand up to kill and take revenge.

The iteration doesn't seem to stop.

Dec 16, 2014 04:32pm

These senseless butchers need to be crushed mercilessly. They are not human beings.

Dec 16, 2014 04:33pm

In many of the comments, these terrorists are compared to animals.

Let us be clear on one thing - NO animal kills people other than for eating its prey. You can never see a lion or tiger killing for killing sake.

Animals are at a much better level compared to these beings - they dont deserve to be compared to animals.

This all destruction is to DE-stabilized Pakistan- Terrorist can not over take on education/Pakistan- Pakistani Will fight against terrorist- one day all nation of the world will eliminate all terrorist from this world- will Fight against whom who want to stop our children from studies. I offer condolences to the families of all the innocent people killed by the terrorists. I am still thinking of those children who died(shaheed) in this unfortunate event. Salute to all children- Our country security should be handed to army- our law is corrupt- Law should be strict so nobody dare to do anything. Long Live Pakistan-

My heart goes out to all these children and parents in grief. May Jesus grant them peace and comfort. Love, from India.

Dec 16, 2014 04:37pm

When will the intelligence agencies rise for the safety and security of the people of Pakistan. We see serious intelligence failures one after the other and when in a war situation vigilance and security should be even more tighter. I am sorry the administration and the security agencies can't just escape without taking the blame and ensure these don't happen again.

I followed the event of Sar-e-Aam program and what happened to the team that tried to expose the culprits and loopholes in the railway cargo. I would have expected the administration of Karachi and the agencies should immediately come in to action and seized sealed the whole cargo to investigate what's been going on, our soldiers are dying and the innocent civilians due to such lack of action.

Pakistan is a country with hundreds of political parties including religious parties with no code of conduct. Religious parties as well as other political parties must be forced to I fail to understand why the state has no interest in registering the madressas and also the students there.

May Allah give peace and patience to their parents to bear this heavy shock and loss

Dec 16, 2014 04:40pm

Its very strange feeling, setting in a multinational company office in a foreign country. Cant explain what's going on in my mind at the movement. My heart is broken and eyes wet. Few colleague ask the reason but cant reveal it. Request every one not politicise the incident, PM in Peshawar, IK postpone the strike. Be united, we will win insha Allah.

I feel the tension and trauma of the families who children are Martyred and of those whose children are still trapped there.

Long Live my country and the People. Pak Zindabad.

Dec 16, 2014 04:40pm

A very very sad day for all of us. But it is we, who are the real guilty party here. It is we, who believe in hatred and intolerance. It is we, who believe that there are good terrorists. Shame on all of us.

Dec 16, 2014 04:42pm

this is a coward act by barbarian. Can we unite to stop this evil.

Dec 16, 2014 04:42pm

Dec 16, 2014 04:46pm

Every single Pakistani should come out open and make a peoples movement against the coward barbarians who cannot spare even innocent children. This is the only way these people can be defeated. They cannot withstand the mass movement. Security forces can only do limited work. The mindset of the terrorist should be attacked with mass country wide protest. They should feel that they are isolated. My prayers and thoughts for the innocent victims and their families.

Dec 16, 2014 04:49pm

Heartfelt condolences from India. RIP. How can anyone kill school children ? These are barbarians, not human beings.

Its huge mourning moment for the entire human civilization, and calls for a big change in policy towards terrorism. The blood, bones, flesh, tears and hatred does not bring peace to any culture or society. Its the education, infrastructural development and transparency which are the cornerstone of the evolved civilization -- look at west.

When is this blood bath gonna stop? Now, did you feel the pain and anger of all the Indians and the families of those killed in 26/11? When will Pakistan stop supporting and exporting terrorism? Look, I am not trying to start a blame game here. I am just saying what the truth is. Why doesn't the Pakistan government arrest Hafiz Sayeed? When will Pakistanis stop supporting that man? Wake up guys before it's too late.

You are dealing with animals and the Pakistani people will have to rise to the occasion to get rid of fundamentalism now deep rooted in the society. Pakistan will have to take steps to curb religious TV broadcast, bring mosques and Madressas under government control. A special force be created to infiliterate Taalibaan strongholds and bring all those responsible to justice.

My heart goes out to the family members of the children. They were destined for a greater good. No religion, no faith, no ideology can forgive such a heinous act. We the people of India stand united with the people of Pakistan in condemning this mindless violence. I urge the Pakistani civil society to rise up and cleanse their nation of terrorism of all forms. There are no good and bad terrorists. The Guns which spill blood in Afghanistan, India, Sydney, the US and other countries are the same ones which were used for this cowardly act. Maybe someone like a Hafiz Saeed promised these butchers heaven and virgins for their dastardly attack. Let us all pray for the lives cut short. May the almighty give the families the strength to bear this loss and may the departed angels rest in peace.

Indeed the most shameless day in the history of the country. All those who have been advocating talks with these animals & wasting the time of the nation should be slapped on their faces. Operation against these animals should be taken to next level with the policy of "taking no prisoners" as our judiciary & then Human Rights Watch & those who have applied moratorium on putting to death these criminals (now more than 8,000 on death row for the past several years), should be given a shutup call & all these death sentences especially those involved in terrorism must be excercised. Don't know why these lobbies keep telling Pakistan not to execute these criminals, while every day Saudi's, Bangladeshi's & dozens of other countries keep putting their & foreign nationals to death. No ones questions them. Why they don't want Pakistan to serve justice on these animals?

Dec 16, 2014 04:58pm

Today, bus of my kids got late by 30 minutes,and I was so much anxious. It is unimaginable to imagine pain of parents whose children will never return to homes.

Dec 16, 2014 04:59pm

@True Muslim You have a twisted mind and not aware of Islam, you should come out and speak openly in public and face the people who's loved ones are killed.

Dec 16, 2014 05:00pm

Horrendous! terrorism is not part of any religious ideology and these are not Muslims, in fact they are not human...they are animals, My heart goes out to the families of those innocent children...heartfelt condolences from India...#solidarity

Dec 16, 2014 05:00pm

Very shocking. All sympathies to victims and their families. Sad to think that any sane person can find any justification for such an act. Impossible to think what could have motivated the attackers - did they really consider themselves to be doing something brave, or something that would reward them in this life or in the hereafter?

Dec 16, 2014 05:01pm

Its really a sad and tough time for my Pakistan brothers and sister. May god give you the courage to sum up all your anger to give a unified fight against terrorism. No one can escape from this sin of killing the young buds. There are millions and millions of loving hearts on other side of the border who are equally sad on this unfortunate event.

So sad just even to read this. When will the Pakistani leaders realize that there are no good terrorists to encourage for proxy wars and bad ones to fight against. Get rid of all terror groups and focus on peace and prosperity.

Dec 16, 2014 05:05pm

The innocent that were killed are being called martyrs by people and media in Pakistan. A martyr is person who dies for a purpose and is prepared for that. These were young children who went to school for learning. They were not going on a mission. They were not prepared to die. These were just children.So this was plane and brutal murder. They are not martyrs but victim of savagery.Calling them martyrs actually lowers the barbarity of act.

Extremely senseless and painful act by mindless barbarians.. Condolences to families who had to bear the loss of their loved one. We all need to realise that there is no way out rather than drop the hypocrisy and work together with real-intention to root out terrorism and extremism of any form without differentiating them as "Good" or "Bad". There can not be any "Good" terrorists..

While country is at war with Taliban why not the soft targets like schools, hospitals, courts, masjid be well protected, with lots of soldiers, not few. The boundary walls shall have vast area as plain land,all around, then wire fencing. This should be seen thru CCTV by security people.

The Leaders of the country who are and were in favor of talks with Taliban should be immediately removed. Our such leaders have no vision and not wise enough to know that these people are heartless creatures on earth.

But our Leaders spend Nation's money on their luxurious houses like palaces, bullet and bomb proof cars for themselves and their families But these small children are left with very small security in the region where war is going on. This area particularly must be put under very high security and protection. These Taleban can come anytime from the mountains in area around.

Our thoughts and heart are with the families/parents.

Dec 16, 2014 05:15pm

Condolence from India. These visuals are devastating. May no one else ever has to see this kind of barbarism again.

Our hearts are weeping. Our condolences to families and friends. Also need to take care of the kids who are saved as they might go in psychological trauma which imprints deep inside. Son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father, friends and many other relations are way beyond the religion or national boundary and are nourished by humane values. Every person on the earth has the right to hold these relations. Every person on the earth has the right to be happy, be prosperous. And when such an attack on humanity happens, we need to ask ourselves. Should we tolerate the intolerance? Lastly, my heart for the families of the victims and for the general public of the nation.

I am a proud Indian and hate Pakistan for supporting terrorists, but this incident has shaken me. These terrorists are nothing but Shaitankiaulaad. Saddened by such a barbaric attack on kids. Cant even imagine what those innocent children's parent must be going through. May God rest their soul in peace and give strength to their near and dear ones to endure the pain.

Dec 16, 2014 05:30pm

Dear Countryman....... I don't know what to say and how to react on the situation..... We can feel the pain but not the same intensity of pain the affected family are feeling...... Being a father, I am standing with all the parents who lost their loved ones......

I am totally speechless..... I saw blood on my hand also ... Coz we all are responsible for this...... MAIRAY ALLAH RAIHAM FARMAIYYAY HAM SAB PAR......... KIA YEHI DIN DEKNA REH GAYA THAAA....

Enough is enough now...... words are not enough..... As a nation we must stand together and kicked these elements out of our community...... I request all authorities not to kill the remaining terrorists .... capture them .... and give them the most severe punishment they can think off..... placing a single bullet in their heads is not enough...... No MERCY to all such type of people.... who stab us from time to time till this moment......

Dec 16, 2014 05:31pm

@Taimur My heartiest condolence to all the Muslim Nation! respected bro & sis! Three groups are responsible for this tragic incident : 1.those who are directly involve; Talban the killers of 60 thousands innocent people 2. those who support them politically, financially and ideologically 3. those who are silent and spectators on their barbarism since the beginning.

Dec 16, 2014 05:32pm

My condolences to the parents and relatives of the kids, it is a cowardly act on humanity. Hope this helps Pakistani people decide if there is a good/bad Taliban. Hope they would stand up and eliminate each and everyone of them.

Dec 16, 2014 05:33pm

What is the benefit of having nuclear bomb and such a large army when we are not able to save our own children.Wondering India is our enemy or Taliban and these terrorists.

Dec 16, 2014 05:34pm

Pakistan should declare itself a SECULAR Democracy and confine religion to Mosques and home and NOT club RELIGION with POLITICS.

Dec 16, 2014 05:34pm

some terrorists escaped cutting barbed wire ..... find them 1 terrorist killed is equivalent to 100 innocents rescued !!

Dec 16, 2014 05:35pm

TeT should be hunted and destroyed.. This is extremely painful.. I am a father and I cant even imagine what the parents of the children must be going through.. My heart goes out to all of them.. What is wrong with these barbaric inhuman people?? What are they trying to achieve?? No religion says to kill innocent children.. We Indians stand completely united with all of our pakistani brothers and sisters in this fight against this evil.. May all the gods of all the religions wreak havoc on these terrorists..

Dec 16, 2014 05:36pm

It is a very sad moment.let all the pakistanis and the world unite together and fight against terrorism.No religion preaches terrorism.Heart felt condolence to families of died children.

Dec 16, 2014 05:38pm

Extremely sad. My heartfelt sympathy to the families of the children killed by senseless terrorists. Very sad.

Dec 16, 2014 05:38pm

Heart breaking to see children being targeted !! What kind of humans can kill children?? May God give the parents the courage to tide over this crisis. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about what the parents must be going through.

Dec 16, 2014 05:41pm

Can we please ignore our petty issues about supporting one party or another and just think of the people having to deal with this nightmare? This is a NATIONAL tragedy and all our institutions need to work together to first help those who have suffered and then come up with measures to avoid this ever happening again....this has happened in Pakistan (not KPK or Peshawar or whatever).

Dec 16, 2014 05:42pm

Find these evil people whoever and wherever they are and bring them to justice. This is a DEMAND of the Pakistani nation from its government and administration.

Never expected militants to go down to such low level and kill children. May the god give strength to all the family and relatives of deceased.

Ya Allah Protect my country from these terrorists.

Dec 16, 2014 05:46pm

Dec 16, 2014 06:00pm

I am not trying to play politics here, but this kind of horrific incident by Muslims in the name of their god Alla is too shocking. What kind of God wants the blood of fellow human beings? Hindus and Christians in India are living in constant fear of Muslims..

What a religion which asks its followers to kill others? I am in deep shock..let the Pak government torture and kill every terrorist in their country, only then will there be justice for the innocent kids..

Dec 16, 2014 06:04pm

This war against terrorism would need to be fought through to its logical conclusion. How about instituting a policy that for every such incident no matter where perpetrated by these barbarians, they are made to pay a heavy price with their hideouts bombarded severely, ensuring that militants in multiple times the number who fell victim to their attacks, are eliminated. Relentless pursuit and extermination are the only means that remain.

Dec 16, 2014 06:04pm

@jahangir Khan This is time of mourning and getting angry to protect our most vulnerable, our future. I'm a Hindu Indian who is so upset with this heinous and cowardly act that my heart is crying.

It is time to set aside the differences and jointly fight for elimination of terrorists within Pakistan- If necessary, there should be no question to seek help and support from neighboring countries including India, Afghanistan and Iran including china if required to cleanse the area once for all. No normal citizen would be safe in these situations and the area - specially Pakistan became a hotbed of breeding terrorists in the name of religion (although it has no relation to Islam and its teachings). Madness and height of craziness. Time for concerted coalition action to root out the menace from the South Asia.

Dec 16, 2014 06:07pm

Its a great loss for the country. Why kill the kids ??? Go and fight with the commandos. My deep deep sympathy goes out to the parents,brother and sisters who have suffered this pain

Dec 16, 2014 06:11pm

feeling sad :-( . we indians are with people of pakistan . Time has come to take quick strong action against those who are responsible for this heinous crime. May his soul rest in peace . there should be no human rights for these inhumans .

Cold blooded murders....TALIBAN....Now you need carpet bombing !!!

This a 1000 times worse!

I want to cry>

My heart cries over this unfortunate event. Humanity died today. :((

Dec 16, 2014 06:19pm

When will the senseless loss of innocent lives to barbarism be a part of our past? Too disheartening for words. All my sympathy to those suffering from this mad vengeance. Will cheer the day Zarb-e-Azb is concluded, leaving Pakistan free of terrorism. What a horrific loss.

Dec 16, 2014 06:20pm

The terrorists escaped by cutting the wire? In a battle zone surrounded by the armed forces on high alert? I thought I was reading a joke because I cannot understand how this is even possible. So many killed and the murderers escape despite being surrounded. Good God

Dec 16, 2014 06:21pm

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We Indians are with you in your pain :( . RIP for innocent who lost their life. Fight should be against Poverty and not sure what these People will achieve by doing such sad things

Dec 16, 2014 06:23pm

It is the height of terrorism, no human being can appreciate this attack nor can support the logic, I feel only an inhuman beast or devil can do such heinous act. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, it is such a cruel day for them, may God! give them enough strength to withstand this tragedy.

Dec 16, 2014 06:23pm

Our heart goes out for all of you in Pakistan from India. May Allah give you the strength and courage to come out of this tragedy. Painful to think what the parents must be undergoing.

These coward savages think they are doing jihad against children who can't protect themselves.This barbaric act should open the eyes of those who were still holding soft corner for these animals.Enough is enough, the army should act swiftly now.Its high time they chase and dig out all those who hatched this plan no matter where they are.

Dec 16, 2014 06:33pm

No language can express the grief of this barbarous incident.I appeal to the people of Pakistan to throw these extremists and those political parties who have softened voice.We the people from India if make unified attempt can eliminate them.

Dec 16, 2014 06:42pm

Terrible news... Army needs to step up to the task here and deal with these militants properly. Not good enough so far from the Pakistan Army... Zarb-i-azb may have eliminated many militants, but against the death of 130 children, this operation has not been good enough in hindsight. Army needs to pursue these militants as #1 priority and protect its citizens from this kind of carnage in future.

Can these rogue,blood thirsty and money hungry animals will ever become peace loving and normal humans?We the Pakistanis want the answer from political leadership..

Lesson must be learnt otherwise history will not excuse those in power. They are equally guilty of not taking suitable action. Peace be in the region.

We have failed! Pakistan has failed in protecting our children. We are collectively to be blamed for letting this menace take hold of our lives. I am absolutely out of words to say anything. Humanity at it's absolute worst! Thoughts and prayers to the families for this unimaginable loss because they are forever scarred. Pakistan has to fight but the fight has to start in our national mindset and in our individual psyche. We have no choice but to get rid of this evil, which is slowly taken over our society like a virus. #fightbackPakistan

Dec 16, 2014 07:13pm

This attack on innocent children can not be justified on the basis of any thought process. Its a barbaric act of terror which is conducted by beasts who does not possess any feeling. Desperate time calls for desperate measures. This attack on humanity calls for a joint effort from all the nations who call them civilized to forget their personal differences and eliminate parasite of terrorism from this world.

No mercy to those who kill these innocent children, no mercy at all! Bring them to the justice; let them stand with lower their face in front of law.

Hello Pakistan Army, it's your call now - let the world know that you're not cowards. Don’t bother about internal politics of Pakistan, the mass people of Pakistan are with you without any doubt and they know Pakistan Army is always with them. The world is with you on this fight and InShahAllah, you’ll win.

Killing of innocent children shows how frustrated terrorists are. They are losing and that is why they are looking for soft targets instead of sensitive or strategic targets.

This is a very bad thing that has happened. I condemn these type of attacks across the world. Now my question is to people and leader like Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. Why he wage war across the world. What he gets in return

Dec 16, 2014 09:56pm

@Taimur Our politicians did not attack our school, the Pakistani Taliban did and they have already given their excuse. The question is, why do we as Pakistanis continue to support them? In the name of Islam? From what I know of my religion, there are no examples, ahadees, or commandments that support this Talibani behavior. It is disgusting how we close our eyes like the pigeon and blame everyone else.

@picklu acharya have India eliminated Maoists or Naxals?

@Taimur definitely these animals are cursed my dear, but our leaders are too, because they totally failed to protect and provide security to our children.

@AMRUT not only Mulla's or Maulvis but also Tackerays and Jaitleys. RSS or Shiv Sena don't teach love or harmony either.

One child's life is too many. This is a tragedy for entire humanity. Deepest condolences. Regards

Praying for peace in Pakistan. Let us please only leave messages of peace and condolences. This is not a news report it is an obituary .

It could have been my child, or may be my brother - what they did to deserve this? perhaps this was a desperate act !

every country has a interior minister, do we?

Dec 16, 2014 10:07pm

It is so much of hurt and anger that we carry right now. I think we all empathise with the parents in the time of the grief and anguish that they would be going through. Hope they find peace and God bless the souls of the innocent kids. There has to be retribution. - A parent from Mumbai, India.

Dec 16, 2014 10:48pm

These extremists are only pawns. The people behind the heinous crimes brain washed these individuals to attack school and kill innocent children. Pakistan army strike back harder and bring justice for the innocent people who lost their lives. Show no mercy.

My deepest condolences for the families who lost their loved ones.

Dec 16, 2014 10:49pm

Please , They are children. Guys in Pak plz understand this non-human are the one who you guys praise them,when they attack other countries. This children are your future, for gods sake protect them and stop supporting any terrorist in any form.

Dec 16, 2014 10:53pm

Have been following the event on TV. i think that the Media need to realise this as a traumatic event effecting us all . So commercials should at least be muted and this event should be given the respect it deserves

Dec 16, 2014 10:56pm

As an American Christian, I also mourn the terrible loss of these children and adults. It is impossible that anyone can justify such barbarity. I hope that they will be hunted down to the very last perpetrator and supporter. We have all turned a blind eye to these monsters for too long and it is time to erase them from this world.

Dec 16, 2014 11:13pm

It is very unfortunate that - days after Pakistani and Indian citizens got Nobel peace prize on working for the welfare and rights, and education of Children, such horror attacks on Children occurred. Terrorism must be condemned in all forms, and should not be spared. There should not be any divisions: Good and Bad terrorists.

I saw A mother a brother a father, a sister an uncle , grand father as my whole family from Pakistan virtually helpless and condemned to eternal sorrow, no words can describe our sorrow from India . We pray and pray and pray for the innocence which came to such an sad end. May God rest their souls in eternal peace and grant the courage to the families to cope with this tragedy in their lives.

Heartfelt condolences from India. once I support the Pak army. The valiant job this army is carrying out has led the terrorists to hit a panic button. Count your days idiots. Humanity and God wont rest till you are put to the swords. Killing little angels, our future is a futile attempt on your part to destabilise a country that has already bleed so much. Poor souls rest in peace.

People of Pakistan, We are outraged at these horrific crimes committed against the children and teachers in Pakistan. The people who committed these evils deeds are psychopathic monsters. My heart aches for the families and i pray they can heal and the world will come together to shame and destroy groups that are so far removed from the human race that they would murder children or anyone for not thinking like them.

Very tragic news. All my prayers for the departed innocent souls. When will this STOP?

Dec 17, 2014 12:44am

For me this is a disturbing night after seeing those pictures of innocent kids killed and tortured for no reason. All the saved kids (my own) should be counselled to overcome the trauma and shock. I am an Indian but i wish if i could come over there to help the parents and pakistani people to over come this tragic incident. Never ever thought this would even happen to those innocent little beings. RIP.....beloved kids.

I am in pain and I can't come our poltical leaders and officials can rest.....yes they can do it as their children are at safe places studying abroad....Its for common citizens and people like us......who r in pain....when they will wake will be too late......But we r not going to stop shouting.....we will stand against oppression and barbarianism until our lasr breath......But unfortunately silent majority is in much bigger numbers......

Dec 17, 2014 12:50am

As a father of two kids ,my heart bleed for the innocent kids , who were gunned down by this barbaric wild animals. My deepest condolence to all the parents whose loss cannot be compensated by anything in the world. Hope the God almighty give them strength to bear this loss.

Dec 17, 2014 12:52am

This is not merely a terrorist attack but a declaration of war. Let us not play the blame game and point fingers it is time to unite and eradicate this disease once and for all. No more targeted attacks a full scale operation is needed.

Dec 17, 2014 12:55am

@Jason please don't insult animals. Even a lion doesn't attack a prey unless it's hungry. These are not fit to be called animals.

Dec 17, 2014 12:57am

We all should come out tomorrow on the roads and show our leadership that we want to end it now...

Dec 17, 2014 12:57am

Killing innocent children can not be justified for whatever reasons terrorists are fighting for. I am Indian , and trust me, Children regardless of whether Indian or Pakistan are the same.

I am in no position to advice anyone on how to move forward. I can only pray that sanity returns in this world and this kind of event doesn't again anywhere in the world. My prayers are with grieving parents.

Dec 17, 2014 01:42am

Even animals think twice before attacking other animals children. These guys are worse than animals. How can someone even think about harming innocent children forget killing them. Where are we pushing this world to? Looks humanity is losing slowly and unless all of us good humans unite without considering our borders or religion or cast or creed, these cancerous animals would continue to grow and wipe humanity out of this planet. It is high time we all humans unite against terrorism in any form or in any country. May god give the parents the strength (its easy to say) to bear this irreplaceable loss of their loved ones. Violence of this kind is condemnable and we should raise our voices to make the goverments unit together to crush these evil animal forces which may be less than 1% of our human propulation.

We stand with everyone who lost a loved one in this carnage. Our heart goes out to each child and teacher. The world truly cries with you for this unforgivable loss. At this juncture, take a moment to remember the innocent souls killed in the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Bottom line, Terrorism has no place in any society that wants to be civilized. The time has come for the people of Pakistan to take a stance and root out all forms of terrorism flourishing inside its borders. We pray for you and join hands in destroying those who brought you this pain and injustice!

How am I going to live this life without you? For I only know your laughs and cries, how am i going to hear that voice again?

I held you when you were born, and I kissed your forehead a thousand times. How am I going to live this life without you?

I saw your crawl, and I saw you fall, and I saw you getting up to that resolve. I hugged you, I punished you, I loved you and I hated you. But you came back to me each time, but now that you are gone, how am I going to live this life without you? The morning will come again, and there will be one more afterwards, but knowing that you will not be there makes me empty and meaningless.

My tears, my sorrows, my screams, my cries, will not bring you back to life. I am sorry for not being there when you needed me the most and I beg for that for forgiveness of you and my lord.

I know you are smiling somewhere, thinking about me for sure, and also trying to reach me. But I just can't see you for now as you are probably in a better place. And for now I have to be here, without you, and i don't know how am i going to live this life without you.

Dec 17, 2014 03:00am

I hope and pray - THIS IS IT! No more! Let each and everyone of these 141 innocent lives lost always be a reminder to us, that we cannot let this insanity carry on. We are not dealing with humans - they are barbarians. They have no other motive but to create fear in other people's lives. They cannot be negotiated with. They cannot be reasoned with. They cannot be reformed. Their minds are sick. They are mentally sick and the only way we can feel safe is if they are eliminated. The fact that most of the students in that school belong to the military personnel, the military leaders can probably relate to it. It has hit as close to home as anything could have. Now we know, not doing anything can cause grave consequences - not far away, but right in our own house! I am hoping now the forthcoming news will all be about how we are eliminating these non-humans from the soil of Pakistan. Maybe we can go back to living the lives of security, peace and prosperity. God knows - we all deserve it!

dawn and rest of the media, Will you highlight this as you did for Malala??

Dec 17, 2014 03:28am

Tears have filled my eyes all day even now while I write, as a father, I am distraught. I lower my head in disbelief and look to heaven for comfort. I cannot begin to imagine what the families, friends and loved ones are going through on this most difficult of days.

Today is not a day to blame, today is not a day to seek justice, today is a day the human race mourns. Tomorrow is the day we must stand together and be rid of this cancer that eats us from within.

No words can comfort or have the capacity to comfort the families affected by this heinous lynching. Sorrow and a heartfelt condolence is all we can offer to those innocent children, their families, loved ones and friends.

God grant the children and their teachers their rightful place in Heaven, Ameen.

Make some concreate measures, great leaders and military generals must work together, why NOT we can solve this problem?

Dec 17, 2014 03:40am

Now we have a real reason for mass protests, Dharna and civil disobedience. We are quick to come out on streets for other reasons. This act of cowardice needs unity and all mullahs and politicians should be out on the streets. This will show how patriotic and humane a political or religious leader is.

Dec 17, 2014 03:43am

No words to express sadness, shock, dismay, anger.... RIP little angles.... High time world comes together to fight the terrorism...

Dec 17, 2014 04:44am

I share my sadness as a father of kids. May God give some commonsense to the gun holders that they are never going to sow seeds of flowers with gun and understand that gun will shoot at where ever they point it. When you dont have a capacity to create a life, you dont have right to kill one too.

Dec 17, 2014 04:48am

How does Taliban justify killing of innocent children? Which holy book do they read and follow? Cowards! Pakistan army, police, and other defence forces, we are behind you. Smoke these terrorists out and take them to face the courts of law. No mercy and no negotiations with such cowards!

Will this be the point country turns around and say it out loud that enough is enough. That we will not let anyone use religion for a political agenda anymore. That religion, state and education would all be separate from now on. That whoever preaches war against any other human, be it neighbours who we don't go well with, would be put behind bars.

Will this be not the appropriate tribute to the innocent lives that were lost? Will this be the start of a new Pakistan? I hope so, Ameen..

This is not terrorism. This is monstrous barbarism. Even animals don't kill children.

God punish those terrorists and their masters. Every human heart weeps and is with the families who lost their nears and dears. What goal they serve who do it in name of religion or jihad. Every living soul on this planet must pray for peace of those innocent unblossmed flowers who disappeared in this andhi of brutality. Ameen.

@Khalid Khan These are our children we talking about I haven't had a decent sleep last night and even at work the thought of it disturbing me I can't even imagine what would have been going through these innocents flowers of our country. Allah please protect our people and give lots of patient to the family of these innocent children's including the staff teacher of the school. We must unite against these killer of humanity and enemy of Islam.

Dec 17, 2014 06:10am

RIP our shining stars, our prayers and good wishes with tears in our eyes are with you and ur parents. You had paid ultimate price for this country. However, I would like to pledge Army and Mr PM Please vanish them from the face of earth. Mr PM if you have any good terms with Taliban Minded people then please leave this position and join them. Pakistan will get a good leader to lead the nation.

Dec 17, 2014 06:12am

@khanman what else they should do? it is their duty to do so and they are exposing the culpurits. if you have soft corner for Talibans then I am sorry. well done media for your role. hats off to you guys.

Dec 17, 2014 06:14am

An entire INDIAN Nation stands shoulder to shoulder with their Pakistani brethren in their hour of grief and pray that God give them strength to bear this loss.Our hearts go out to The Parents at their hour of grief.This dastardly attack deserves to be condemned in the strongest terms.

Dec 17, 2014 06:21am

My prayers with the families who lost their child. Today is worst day for mankind. Humanity lost to terror.

Dec 17, 2014 06:28am

@aleem VERY VERY SORRY that unfortunate innocent children were killed. Our heart goes out to the parents most of them must be servicemen. We feel very bad. Couple of years back the terrorists struck near Samba near Jammu and their target was school.Fortunately they were detected and eliminated before they could reach . They all came from across the border. Same thing happened in Uri recently. Please raise voice against these inhuman acts in all forums.

Dec 17, 2014 06:29am

How do these terrorists get weapons , where do they get training? Any one thought about it ?

Dec 17, 2014 06:33am

@reshma Same criminals who were behind Mumbai attacks .They killed innocents there.

No words to pen but TEARS to wipe and this is what everyone whether male or female living in Pakistan or overseas irrespective of religion and nationality have felt and I simply cannot be an exception to it. To the best of my knowledge and belief perhaps it is for the 1st time that so small children and that too in three figures have been gunned down in just few minutes so savagely for none of their fault. This is not only our national loss but that of the humanity as a whole. Iqbal Hadi Zaidi

Prime minister should come out with a written plan FOR APC meeting instead of just statements and shaking hands.All political parties should demand concrete steps from govt. and give full supports instead of reciting marsias. Govt. should esteblish its writ and enforce the law starting hanging those terrorists on death. row.Our govt. is inept,incompetent and impotent.Imran Khan should not give up Dharna.We should demand answers from our govt. and good governance.

“The operation is completed,” said Bilal Ahmad Faizi, the head of the state-run rescue organisation, speaking to reporters after leaving the school area.

No, the operation is NOT complete until everyone who murders, (whether it be individual or terrorist) is put to death. There should not be prison time or plea deals for murderers. I am so sick of this world caring about the murderer's rights, when they couldn't care less about the life of the people they kill or the person's family and friends who now must try to go on with their life.

It's time to give all mullahs the "litar parade" treatment. When they stop enticing and misleading the people, especially in FATA and remote areas, support for Taliban will die out. Unfortunately, mullahs use religion in blackmailing illiterate into following their every diktat. Even the government is powerless when the mullah's invoke religion. No mercy should be shown to mullahs.

My heart goes out for the parents who lost their flesh n blood in this heinous crime. however for future avoidance of such acts the govt of Pakistan shld get help from outside to investigate this. The timing had been perfect, It is possible the PTI supremo is relentlessly trying to bring down the Sharif govt via political means. and TTP is also trying the same via violence. but enemy of enemy is a friend thus TTP n PTI shld not be doing things to hurt each each other. Or may be there is a 3rd dimension, that some one in power today got this hired guns to crush the sentiments of the people. before it use to be Kashmir.. any problem in India or in Pakistan the politician in both the country would escalate activity in Kashmir to divert the attention of the awam. History is full of such episode. Modi govt is clear and proactive to respond adequately on any Kashmir issue. Thus the Governing party in Pakistan had to find other avenue to divert the attention of the awam and thus we get a heart breaking/spliting event. I believe the TTP guys did not kill the kids happily or willingly, they must be under serious pressure from the top guns. Their kids might be under the gun if they refuse to execute the such desperate acts. This has to be the job of some greedy, power hungry personnel, he/she could be Pakistani or whoever.

As an Indian, I have never seen such grief and outrage among the Indian people, as in their reaction to this barbaric carnage of innocent children. Sad moment for humanity. It's time for the governments on both sides to launch an all-out attack on terrorism of all kind. Remember, there are no good or bad terrorists. A human life is lost , irrespective of whether a Pakistani is killed or an Indian!

Dec 17, 2014 07:44am

No words can express the cowardly act, my heart is aching on this gruesome news.

Dec 17, 2014 07:47am

inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un!!! May Allah give sabr to the affected families and bring peace in all nick and corner of the world. Aameen!!!

My heart and soul goes to the dear children, teachers and brave people of Peshawar. My prayers are with the families and friend of army public school. May Allah grant us peace.
May Allah grant us capable leaders, leaders who can govern their citizens, protect their citizens in dignity and honor.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said since the talibaan are killed in operation this was expected. I do't understand PTI and their sympathy to talibaans. I hope IK never wins.

Dec 17, 2014 08:23am

my dear Pakistani friends. if this incident doesnt shake you up, nothing ever will prayers to families who lost loved ones.

Dec 17, 2014 08:36am

Children are children. There are no nationalities when it comes to children. Every right thinking Indian will be praying for the families of these innocents. God help and give them strength.
