Aitzaz made his way into the hearts of Pakistanis everywhere by his brave, selfless actions.

Though he passed away that day, he became immortalized on the map of Pakistan’s history. Aitzaz Hasan became a National Hero. In fact, Nawaz Sharif’s office even advised President Mamnoon Hussain to confer Aitzaz with the Sitara-e-Shujaat.

Nearly four years later, Aitzaz is now being honored by having a road named after him. The news was shared on social media.

I mean, just look at it. It’s great to see one of our heroes finally being acknowledged in some form.

The Twitter user who shared the news, Fasi Zaka, shared how Aitzaz had not been recognized enough for his courageous sacrifice. He also acknowledged Mr. Yasir Pirzada for his efforts to have this road named after Aitzaz.

Mr. Yasir had the following to add:

People on social media have been responding to this gesture. Some talked about how a mere schoolgoing child became such an important symbol for the nation. 

Others thought it was a wonderful tribute to a fallen hero.

And others chimed in with further suggestions.

Some expressed their disappointment over how our nation doesn’t necessarily always honor its heroes.

And others believed he hadn’t been honored the way he deserved to be.

However, most people were glad that Aitzaz’s memory would live on. 

Perhaps Aitzaz deserves more than this. However, it’s great to see that we’re taking some initiative towards honoring our heroes.
