A special tribute song — ‘Mujhay Dushaman Ke Bachon Ko Parhana Hai!’ (I want to educate my enemy’s children) – was released by the Pakistani military’s media wing. “We are a resilient nation, our enemies shall never succeed,” Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said in a tweet.
We are a resilient nation, our enemies shall never succeed. Nations evolve through struggles, determined ones succeed. We are succeeding, united & steadfast we shall attain our objectives of enduring peace and prosperity, IA.#ہمیں_آگے_ہی_جانا_ہےhttps://t.co/bMzXduVn5p pic.twitter.com/dHOdUTidmi

A national tragedy, the APS Peshawar incident claimed 145 innocent lives, mainly children, with some as young as five years – this wanton violence became a rallying cry for Pakistan to unite against the existential threat of what leaps in the background.
In a video making rounds on social media, Indian school girls in Rampur district were seen dancing on Inter-Services Public Relation’s (ISPR) song that was released after the Army Public School incident in 2014 as part of Indian Republic Day celebrations.
