RIP Tahira Qazi, principal of Army Public School who had reportedly been rescued but ran back to help her students and was brutally killed.

On BBC World Have your Say this morning one of my fellow guests was a singer in Peshawar, Rahim Khan. He had been a student at the Army Public School on Warsak Road, Peshawar, from 2001-2003, in grades 11 and 12. In this clip he recalls a reunion at the school ten years later with the principal Tahira Qazi, who was so brutally killed in the attack on Dec 16. Rahim remembered singing in the very auditorium where so many were killed. We shared some more thoughts on Twitter later; see below.

  1. An event such as the one witnessed by the world in which so many children were brutally killed, inevitably it ends up adversely affecting the psyche of people and nations, who are left to deal with many unanswered questions. It is during these difficult times that the psychological trauma felt by all of us can best be consoled through verses from the Quran, which not only provides the proper perspective, but also the much needed psychological consolation from God Himself. Please watch this (and also the ones listed in comments, on Terrorism, Jihad, Qatal/ Killing etc)
