Internationally acclaimed Pakistani mountaineer, Ali Sadpara has been missing since last weekend along with two other mountaineers from his expedition team. Pakistan Army’s search operation to locate them is under way and despite all odds, people are hopeful of his return.
However, his son, Sajid Sadpara believes that his father’s chances of returning alive are ‘next to none’. As Pak Army continues to look for Ali Sadpara, John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr, netizens come together to pray for his safe return.
"In case i'm stuck on the mountain,i can stay in a snow room and i can survive for a few days without food and other things"

Amidst all the chaos, netizens are looking back at his achievements as they are not as yet ready to lose hope. An old video of the mountaineer is going viral on social media in which he can be seen singing and dancing to Tum chalay aao paharon ki qasam amid rounds of claps by fellow climbers.
Journalist Mehreen Zahra shared the video on her Twitter and translated the lyrics of the song. She wrote,
Ali Sadpara singing “choor dunya, aa ja mayray wastay, hum ko ghayal kar gaya tayra situm, tum chalay aao paharon ke qasam” (forget the world and come for my sake, I was wounded by your absence, come to me for the sake of the mountains..)
