Popstar, Ali Zafar released a tribute to the celebrated Pakistani mountaineer, Muhammad Ali Sadpara who lost communication with his camp alongside two other mountaineers on February 5 on their expedition while trying to climb K2, the world’s second highest mountain peak at 8611m. Pakistani mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara and two other climbers from Iceland and Chile had been reported missing since. Multiple missions were carried out by the Pak Army, but resulted in utter disappointment as they have had no success in locating Ali Sadpara and his companions. The mission was expedited further where Army helicopters flew as high as 7,000 meters.
Ali Zafar released “Paharon ki Qasam” to pay tribute to the missing mountaineer, initially sung by Kamal Masood. The song is produced by Ali’s production house called Lightingale Records to which Mooroo has lent his video clips.

The YouTube caption underneath the video said, “No nation can thrive without recognising and celebrating their heroes. Ali Sadpara was one such unsung hero who dedicated his entire life and risked it to accomplish unprecedented feats for his country. This is the least I could do: sing for an unsung hero so that he is etched into our memories for as long as there is music.”

He was a poor guy. With all this mountaineering climbing knowledge, he used to act like a guide. Nobody supported him financially for all his work and titles uptill now. What a tragedy.
I hope his son gets the value his father never got!

Most of the heros in Pakistan are unsung until they die… Wondering when this culture would come to an end and we'll start recognising their achievements while they live & enjoy the due appreciation…
