Peshawar Massacre by Terrorists killing 134 school children

In English What sort of a mother am I Who cannot even count the innumerable bullet wounds spread all over the delicate body of her beloved child However, day and night I keep counting the myriad of marks left by the terrorists' bullets on his school bag; I will also keep counting the innumerable shot wounds that spread all over his blood-stained books and uniform as well provided I have the luck to live until then. (translation by mazHur Butt) In Pushto STA PA BADAN K DA GOLO NAKHO TA, CHA HADO PRE NAKHODAM CHE MA SHMARALLY KHO WAY STA PA BASTA K DA GOLO NAKHY HUM KHEY DERY WAY ZEH TOLA WRAZ YE SHMARAM STA KITABUNO AU KAPO K NAKHY HAGHA BA HUM SHMARAMA KHO K JWANDAI PATY SHOM ( Pa 16,December da yo shaheed bachi da Mor sanda) 16 December ko shahadat pany waly aik Bachy ki Maan ka Nooha.. ....HumayunHuma In URDU Mein kesi maa'n hoo'n ke jissay goliyoan ke nishaan jism nazuk per tere ay meri aankh ke taaray gin-nay ka izn mila hee nahi haan magar shumaar karti hoon subh o roz tere bastay pe lage golion ke ghaO beshumaar tere kaproan aur kitaboan per bhi jo hein zaalimoan kee golion ke beshumaar nishaan tere pak khoon se labraiz mein unhein bhi gin-na chahti hoon aur gin hee loon gee unhein agar zindagi ne wafa kee.

Powerful poem. The simplicity of the language and the manner in which this story is told creates a sharper pang for the reader than if this poem had spoke of pain and tears. That this happened is so hard for so many to conceive. Will love ever win?

I think the tragedy was the result of a vendetta between army operating against terrorists in North Pakistan and the terrorists.
