On 6th January 2014.
Aitzaz Hasan was a schoolboy from Hangu district who, through sheer bravery and selfless sacrifice, saved the lives of more than 2,000 from a suicide bomber. Aitzaz was outside his school gate when he saw a suspicious man walking towards the school. When Aitzaz called out to the person to stop, he started walking faster towards the school. The brave lad ran forward and tackled the terrorist to the ground upon which he detonated the vest. Aitzaz was no more among the living but his sacrifice saved countless lives and he was hailed as a national hero.
