Teen Sacrifices His Life To Save School
I don't care who are you are, or how you feel about Muslims. This article deserves a read and should be shared.
I would like the thank the Global Secular Humanist Movement Facebook page for bringing this to my attention.

Quote:Tributes have been pouring in for a Pakistani teenager who was killed on Monday when he tackled a suicide bomber targeting his school in the Hangu area.

Read about this. Nice to see more humans with a protective reflex. Sad he didn't survive but he definitely saved lives.

It's sad there were some folks insisting he be exalted above Malala Yousufzai. I think the two of them are both heroes. Why the competition?

I dunno, it's social media. Most don't even know who they're talking about. Just jump on the hash tag boat.

But just can't help but think what this kid could've accomplished with that sort of mentality if he didn't have to sacrifice himself...

Of course he should be honoured. No doubt.

Thanks for posting the link

Of course, any story like this deserves to be shared and remembered no matter the people. It's a good change compared to America's news who seems to only remember and glorify the shooter and not the victim(s).

Although I am curious, for the one person who said no: why not?

That's very sad. But he was a brave young man indeed.

His family wants him to be declared as shaheed/martyr that will bring some benefits to them, and 72 virgins for him I guess.

So? A martyr for saving a school against an extremist? I think that's fair. ..
