An atrocious massacre of school children at a school in Peshawar has brought about widespread anger and disgust across the world.

The attack was conducted by the Taliban gunmen who stormed into a school in Pakistan killing 148 people, including 132 children.

The Pakistani Taliban released a statement and pictures claiming that their attack was justified on the army school as the ‘Pakistani army had long been killing innocent children and families of their fighters.’

The sheer outrage and horror of the attack has been expressed by millions across the world and many prayers and candle light vigils have begun to take place to pay respect to and honour the children and teachers from the school.

As such, a candle light vigil is to be held in Bradford’s centenary square tomorrow evening (18th December) at 7pm.

The vigil is being organised by a non-affiliated group of community activists. “It’s just a solidarity event where people of all faiths and none, who are disgusted by this horrific massacre by the Taliban can come and share thoughts and prayers with the parents and families of the victims,” said Arshad Ali, one of the organisers.
