Army Public School attack : Hasnain Sharif – Age: 14

Updated Dec 15, 2015 09:42pm

Son of Mr and Mrs Sharif Gul

Hasnain was an only child.

When asked to talk about his son, his father is unable to express his deep feeling of loss. He had big dreams for his son. He hoped that Hasnain would complete his studies and work hard to make a mark in society. He wanted his boy to share the household's financial burden.

He loved to visit his village, where he played for hours with the young of the farm animals. He was quite particular about his clothes and would ask his father to buy him new outfits.

His mother was unable to speak about him. The loss of her only child has left her deeply scarred. While his father made brave attempts to stay strong, he broke down when he talked about how much he misses his son.
