Seven years down to this day, I get the same lump in my throat, the same heaviness in my heart, and the same prayer on my tongue,” she assured.
“May Allah have mercy on the families of those little souls now in heaven. May their hearts be strengthened. May there never be another who puts humanity to shame. God, please guide us,” added the Sinf-e-Ahan actor.

In another post, Siddiqui said¸ “An act of senseless madness and sheer barbarism. It’s an open wound, a somber if a reminder that the smallest coffins are the heaviest. May peace be upon the families who lost their young ones,” he added.
To categorise Pakistan as a “terrorist state” is to insult the countless Pakistanis who have paid the price of U.S. led wars & the radicalised terrorism that has seeped onto our soil. Today marks 8 years since one of the most painful examples. #apsattack – we will never forget.

Ushna Shah also lamented the incident in her post. She said, “To categorize Pakistan as a terrorist state is to insult the countless Pakistanis who have paid the price of wars led by the United States and the radicalized terrorism that has seeped onto our soil. Today marks eight years of one the most painful examples of these wars. APS attack-we will never forget.”
Veteran actor Samina Pirzada said, “My heart is very sad today. May Allah keep my country safe, protect the children of my country, and save our people from all kinds of human evil. Today forces us to think about the lives we have lost. I hope history is never repeated. May God give us the ability to make the right decisions. Amen.”
