Nobody deserves a untimely death, esp. not our children. We will talk about it today, may be tomorrow and may be a day after, but one day the world would move on. But how will the grieving mothers and fathers move on? Dear Pakistanis, we stand with you in this hour of grief and we know no words can be good enough to lessen your pain, but let us cry with you and share your grief.

Well done Dawn...You picked the peace element and what is in the inner heart of common man... This is the ethics and it should be.. I appreciate your sincere effort in highlighting our love towards our pakistani brothers and sisters..As a father of two I am really disturbed to see the painful images from peshwar army school.. I am feeling in my heart how my those innocent lovely angels must have suffered from the hands or those ignornant idiots....I am feeling the pain of all those parent whose dream was shattered due to this henious act. Hope our Pak siblings will understand who are real brothers and sisters.. I appreciate Indian govt's actions to become a part of pak's hard time and sorry of families. Seeing the innocence and sincerity in these pictures I feel like this is time we have to unite and stand for well being of our nations and its prosperity and to fight together against terrorism..

I pray to God than this type of henious crimes aganist humanity may stop and people shall live in peace. Rest in peace my little children. My heart felt condolense all parents in peshwar.

If every adult has a pure heart like a child, there will be no hostilities. Let us assume for a while that we on both sides are children and we strive for co-operation, love, pace and affection with each other. Enemies will derail and will be demolished automatically. Thank you India for very kind and heartly prayers for those who have left us. They have marked their deaths for peace and stability. Let their sacrifices do not go in vain. It is time to go after those hounds and finish them all. Hard job for Pakistan Army. I believe every Indian will stand with Pakistan at this difficult time.

Dear children we are grateful to you. You know that we are in shock and deep grief but can say that we are broken. The fault is of our policy makers that they have been using terrorists as proxies. Now snakes turned against them also and stung the little flowers also. Until our policy makers realize importance of neighboring countries like India and Afghanistan we can not get rid of such terrorism and barbarism. Once again thank you children. We know sound of your weep and that is the sound of our children are same.

ITS MODI call and its value in India as NARENDRA MODI ASKED ALL SCHOOLS TO OBSERVE MOURNING for 2 minutes and is been implemented. That is the power of democracy, the leader has to lead from front. HOPE Pakistan will too have such leader who only thinks about Pakistani peoples well being, poverty eradication, proper education to enhance livelihood. IF Gandhi and Jinnah look at us from heavens they will weep for what's going on in our countries. Pakistani democracy need to be strengthened with military under the control of democracy until that is not achieved its very difficult to achieve peace. Only people of Pakistan can do that by forcing Pakistan government to take strong steps to build good relations with india. India will do everything under modi to restore peace and harmony upto using its military to combat terrorism and all it needed is Pakistan should seek it and stand by MODI.

Today in Bangalore, many kilometres from Peshawar, a school had its Annual day celebrations. All the guests present observed two minute silence as homage to those innocents who died in the school massacre. Innocent children are Gods gift and are above colour, creed, religion or whatever and the pain inflicted can be felt all over. I hope this is a turning point and lets for a moment believe in peace and crush the hate mongers, else the sacrifice of these children will go waste. I wish never to hear such news again anywhere in the world.

I am feeling sad by this time. It is true that terrorism has no religion. Pakistan has lost 132 children, future of the country for ever. Now it is the high time to set up a common wing with Indian to fight against all patterns of terrorism in the South East Asia to make this zone free from all terrorist group belongs to any country. So both of our country should come together and make joint analysis in the basis of intelligence report take drastic action against all groups belongs to India & Pakistan. This is the only way to give the secured future to the Next Generation of both country.
