Killing of kids in Pak darkest day of humanity: Satyarthi

Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Tuesday termed the killing of 124 students in a school in Pakistan’s Peshawar by Taliban militants as “one of the darkest days of humanity” and offered himself to the terrorists if they were ready to free the children taken hostage.

Satyarthi, who received the Nobel Peace Prize a week back along with Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai, who was also the target of a Taliban attack, said Pakistan government must take all possible steps to protect children and schools from violence.

“If they can hear me, they can keep me hostage, kill me but release those 400 children of mine who are trapped there,” he said.

“The Taliban terrorist who have held them hostage, who are shooting them down are enemy of humanity, they are enemies of Allah, enemies of religion, enemies of Islam. They are enemies of all of us. I pray to God that they get wisdom from somewhere,” he said. In a series of tweets, Satyarthji expressed his anguish and urged all right-thinking people to rise against the “inhuman” crime.
