PAKISTAN (INTELLIHUB) — This Monday in Ibrahimzai, Pakistan a suicide bomber approached a school of 2000 students when a 15 year old boy named Aitzaz Hasan, ignoring the pleas of his friends, approached the suicide bomber and tackled him, detonating the bomb and killing them both in the process.

“My cousin sacrificed his life saving his school and hundreds of students and school fellows,” his cousin Mudassar Hassan Bangish told the BBC’s Aleem Maqbool.

“The suicide bomber wanted to destroy the school and school students. It was my cousin who stopped him from this…destruction.”

“So he told them ‘I’m going to stop him. He is going to school to kill my friends’. He wanted to capture this suicide bomber. He wanted to stop [him]. Meanwhile the suicide bomber blasted himself which resulted in the death of my cousin,” Mr Bangish said.

“My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children,” Mujahid Ali, Aitzaz’s father is quoted as saying.

On Twitter, users are paying tribute to Aitzaz using the hashtags #onemillionaitzaz and #AitzazBraveheart.
