Mr. Fazal Khan (Advocate & Human Rights Activist) speaking during EFSAS Side-event on the sidelines of the 51st Session of the UNHRC
Mr. Fazal Khan began his talk with a reference to his son, who was killed alongside 146 others during the Peshawar school attack in 2014. He noted that it is natural that such a devastating terrorist attack would have devastating effects on the families involved and that the attack, perpetrated by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), had been facilitated by Pakistani security agencies. The evidence of this involvement, however, has been ignored until now. The families affected by the attack have sought justice within Pakistan’s judicial system, including through the filing of motions to the Pakistani High Court and the Supreme Court, leading to the Supreme Court ordering the formation of a commission investigating the attack.
