Following the massacre that killed more than 141 people, including 132 children, in the Peshawar Army School on Tuesday, 16 December, the Pakistan government declared a mourning period of three days. Schools and other institutions remained closed for three days, to pay homage to the martyrs of the brutal attack.
Special candlelight vigil and prayers were organised in various parts of the country, where people paid tribute to the victims of the attack.
Even after four days, the survivors of the bloody attack still fear to get back to the school, which was attacked by the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan on Tuesday.
The Indian government has sent special instructions to schools in the country on how to react to such an attack in future.
