Wasim Akram praises APS attack survivor Waleed


Army Public School (APS) Peshawar student Waleed watched the Leeds Test between Pakistan and England alongside former Pakistani cricketers Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Ramiz Raja.

Praising the courage of the students, former fast bowler Wasim Akram wrote on his Twitter account: “Sometimes the real superheroes live in the hearts of the children who have fought the biggest battles” Waleed from APS school is one of our brave souls who survived one of the darkest days of our Nation. His strength is as Great as any man I know.

Waleed Khan was among the students targetted by terrorists in APS Peshawar attack. The young student received eight bullets-six on his face and two on legs-but he survived and become a story of courage for Pakistan and the rest of the world.
