Twitter Pays Tribute to The National Hero Aitzaz Who Saved Hundreds of Lives

On 6th January 2014, a 15-year-old lion-hearted student foiled a vicious attempt of a terrorist to kill hundreds of students in a school.

Aitzaz Hassan, a national hero, was later awarded Sitara-e-Shujaat for his brave attempt to save precious lives in Hangu. He made sure that the suicide bomber didn’t enter his school otherwise the results would have been devastating. The bomber blew himself up at the gate when Aitzaz, a 9th class student back then, grabbed him, resulting in an explosion that killed them both.
