Younger sibling of Ahmad Nawaz, Haris Nawaz was among the 141 martyred children in the brutal APS attack on December 16, 2014.
Ahmad Nawaz was himself injured in that APS attack and was flown to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for surgery as he was shot in the arm.
Doctors at Peshawar’s Lady Reading Hospital had advised Ahmad Nawaz’s parents to shift him to another facility as he could not be treated at the hospital. They feared that the young student might lose his limb.
The 17-year-old Ahmad Nawaz, now resides in Birmingham with his family. He has also been nominated for a No2H8Crime Young Upstander Award for his courage and conviction during APS attack.
