As per the reports Saleem Said, “Lagatar firing huyi, main isliye ruka nahi, bus chalata raha. (I did not stop because there was continuous firing. I kept driving the bus). God gave me the strength to keep moving, and I just did not stop.

A bus passenger said Terrorists started firing from all three sides. We didn’t know what to do. Thanks to the presence of mind of the driver who drove the bus for 2-3 km and saved our lives”.

Saleem deserves a great respect from all of us as he risked his own life and saved the passengers. He showed that religion is nothing to show it is the Humanity which needs to be shown.
