“Rest in K2 forever”, climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara’s son buries his father
Climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara’s son has buried his father on world second tallest mountain K2—where Muhammad Ali Sadpara went missing with two other mountaineers—paying glowing tributes for his courage and love, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Sajid Ali Sadpara also recorded video at K2 after the mountain summit and said, “I came for search of my father and other two climbers. All bodies have been found. But the bodies of my father Muhammad Ali Sadpara and his co-climber John Snorri were at 8,400 at the bottleneck point which was a most technical point.”
He said, “I discussed with my search team that it was not possible to bring down the bodies.”
Sajid Sadpara said. “I can only bury the bodies here at the K2.”
Earlier he said, “I have retrieved the body from above the bottleneck, carried it down to C4 and have secured the body there. I have offered fatiah and recited verses of Holy Quran as per Islamic rituals and according to wishes of my mother.”
I have secured body of our hero at C-4. An Argentinian climber has been a great help in bringing body above bottleneck till C-4. I offered Fatih & recited Holy Quran on behalf of whole nation #MissionSadpara #K2Search— Sajid Ali Sadpara (@sajid_sadpara) July 28, 2021

Earlier he said, “Last few days have been challenging and lucky for us all, high up in the mountains. With the whole nation waiting and looking to hear about the search and recovery of their hero Ali Sadpara. We are lucky enough to find the bodies of my companions from K2 Winter 2021 and try to secure and preserve them at a safe location for further possibilities.”
“Being at a very technical and dangerous slope, retrieving it in the first place is challenging. In order to honour my father Ali Sadpara and lost companions, I have once again set my foot on the summit of K2 this morning at 8:10am,” Sajid Sadpara said.

“I am securing bodies of fallen climbers to a safe place and instant retrieval from above the bottleneck is not possible without endangering many lives. Possibilities of retrieving bodies without further damages and without risking lives would be done at a later stage after consulting families and experts.
Sajid Ali Sadpara thanked the whole nation for their love and prayers and requested everyone at K2 not to share any photo/video of the bodies, as it’s very painful for all families and friends.
According to updates from Sajid Sadpara, bodies of 3 climbers have been found in and around the bottleneck. More details for recovery and possibility of retrieval of the bodies will follow #K2Search #MissionSadpara pic.twitter.com/ecsZJj6f8c— Team Ali Sadpara (@ali_sadpara) July 27, 2021
