HAGNU: Aitzaz Hassan, who sacrificed his life while preventing a suicide bomber from entering his school at Imrahimzai Village of Hangu in 2014, has been remembered today on his second death anniversary.
Functions were organized across the country to pay glowing tributes to the national hero.
Aitzaz was standing outside his school in Ibrahimzai village when he saw a suspicious person, wearing suicide jackets and explosives, close in on the educational facility.
The 15-year old boy without caring for his life took hold of the terrorist and managed to divert the suicide bomber away from the school. The explosives went off in the scuffle, killing the terrorist and Aitzaz.
It is unimaginable what kind of damage would the country have suffer if Aitzaz Hassan had not stopped the bomber from succeeding in his heinous mission.
He was rewarded with Tamgha-e-Jurat for his courage and valour. NNI
