Everyone is saddened by the death of mountaineer Ali Sadpara, who was determined to hoist the Pakistani flag on the world’s second most dangerous hill and is paying tribute to the national hero.
Ali Sadpara set out on a K2 adventure with local and foreign climbers in early February, accompanied by his son Sajid Sadpara, who had returned to base camp due to the weather.
After the disappearance of Ali Sadpara, an attempt was made to find him. Several search operations were carried out in this regard in which Pakistan Army and expert mountaineers took part but no success was found.
Until a day ago, the whole nation and Ali Sadpara’s family was waiting for a miracle, but today his son Sajid Sadpara confirmed his father’s death and said, “Muhammad Ali Sadpara is no longer with us.”
Confirming his father’s death, Sajid Sadpara, son of Pakistani mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara, said, “I lost my father’s patronage and the great mountaineer of Pakistan. My father and other mountaineers did not stay with us.”
Sajid Sadpara said that Muhammad Ali Sadpara climbed 8 peaks above 8000, I and my family are grateful to the whole nation, the nation, the media gave their support for which I thank.
Expressing gratitude to the government and army for their cooperation in the search operation, Muhammad Ali Sadpara’s son said that in this difficult time, the nation gave him encouragement and he would continue his father’s mission and fulfill his dream.
After the confirmation of Ali Sadpara’s death, the entire nation saluted his spirit and paid homage to the mountaineer in a splendid manner.
Immediately after Sajid Sadpara’s confirmation, the hashtag #AliSadpara was created on the social networking website which became a top trend.
Rest in peace @ali_sadpara, @john_snorri & #JPMohr. Your spirit, passion, grit & determination in the face of every kind of hardship leaves behind a rich legacy, inspiring generations. #AliSadpara, pride of 🇵🇰.
