The Federal Government of Pakistan is considering to grant Army Public School (APS), the university status and changing its name to Shuhada APS University. This recommendation has been made by Judicial Commission (JC) in its inquiry report, to honor the martyrs of APS Warsak Road, Peshawar.
With the order of Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) on October 5, 2018, it was notified that a Judicial Commission should be formed to investigate the APS attack. Peshawar High Court judge, Justice Muhammad Ibrahim Khan lead the commission which provided the investigation inquiry report in front of the Supreme Court three-membered bench. CJP Gulzar Ahmed was heading the bench.
Federal Government has been considering another recommendation of JC which is to include the 2014 attack on APS. This is in order to enlighten the younger generations about the sacrifices of APS martyrs.
Besides that, the Federal Government has also considered several other recommendations of the commission and took initiatives since its start. 22 APS martyrs have also been given posthumous Tamgha-I-Shujaat and Sitara-I-Shujaat.
To pay tribute to the brave young martyrs of this nation, many schools, flyovers, public parks, and roads around the country have been named after them. It has also been ensured that the siblings of APS martyrs should be given free secondary and higher education in the military and cadet colleges.
University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Peshawar and Khyber Medical University Peshawar have been instructed to reserve two seats each as a special quota for the APS martyrs’ siblings.
Special compensation packages have also been announced by the Federal and Provincial governments in order to compensate the martyrs and injured of the APS attack.
