People are celebrating how far he has come since the APS tragedy. 

December 16, 2014, is considered to be one of the saddest days in the history of Pakistan. The day when 6 terrorists entered a school and killed over 140 people, most of whom were children. The survivors of the tragedy were shaken. The entire country mourned the loss for days. Major source of inspiration, however, were the children who survived the attack. After losing their friends and teachers, a lot of the children showed how brave they were by speaking out against extremism. Ahmad Nawaz is one of them.
