New Delhi, Dec 16: As Pakistan remembers the victims of the Peshawar school terror attack on the first anniversary of the massacre, Islamabad’s high commissioner to New Delhi Abdul Basit on Wednesday said their country was the worst hit by terrorism. “Pakistan as a country suffered the most due to terrorism. There is no other country where so much violence has occurred due to terrorism,” Basit said here while commemorating last year’s Peshawar school attack. “Our hearts are deeply pained as we gather here in memory of the students killed in the Army Public School Peshawar,” he added.
He also said he was “pained” as there were other countries which do not share the pain that Pakistan had undergone. “I am very disappointed that there are some countries which do not share the pain that we go through.” “There is no religion that permits killing of innocent people,” the high commissioner said. Basit described the attack as a defining moment in the history of Pakistan as its war against terrorism got mileage. (ians)
