Shaheed Aitzaz Hasan Bangash stopped a suicide bomber from entering his school. He was 15 when he gave his life to save 2,000 students. Pakistan has not protected his family from threats and we have failed to honour him and his sacrifice. His courage and love makes me weep. pic.twitter.com/rXXArjTLnO
