Since the sad incident took place, the whole world described their grievances and condolences on social media for the victims. Here are some of the young souls who died in brutal Peshawar Attack.

Mubeen Shah


Mubeen’s Facebook page is similar to that of a teenage boy with big aspirations and free spirit. He took selfies with his “besties” using an iPhone, wore jackets and cool clothes, and posted photos of soccer player Lionel Messi.

His profile photo shows him wearing his green school uniform. Numbers of people have commented on his pictures for as how much they will miss him..

“I miss you so much my brother. May Allah bless your soul. You were a true friend. I hope you rest in peace. I love you,” reads one post.

A number of students and people from all over the world took to social media to pay tribute and respect to Tahira Qazi, the school principal. The messages show the kind of respect, gratitude and affection students had for Tahira Qazi. Her students called as a courageous lady, mother, and a great teacher and mentor. Rahim Khan, one of her students, tweeted saying his heart was bleeding.

According to the news sources, a witness quoted in local media said Qazi helped many students to safety, even calling parents to come pick up their children.Two years ago, Qazi was awarded Principal of the Year for “achieving excellence and showing professional exuberance in her duty,” according to the news sources.

Tahira Qazi’s funeral was on Wednesday.
