Late Hassan Sadpara yet to receive promised land


Arif Sadpara, the son of Pakistan’s mountaineer, Late Hassan Sadpara claimed that the KP government did not provide them with the land which they promised to give their father as a reward for climbing Mount Everest.

The elder son of Hasan wrote a letter to the Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan and President Arif Alvi to take notice of this issue.

It is pertinent to mention here that the KP government announced to gift 10-canal land to Hassan for achieving the landmark for Pakistan in 2011.

Hassan was the first Pakistani to climb six eight-thousanders including the world’s highest peak Everest (8848m) besides K2 (8611m), Gasherbrum I (8080m), Gasherbrum II (8034m), Nanga Parbat (8126 m), Broad Peak (8051m).

The letter said that after Hassan’s death in 2016 due to Heart Attack, no one has contacted his children’s for support.

“After our father’s death, we had faced difficulties to make ends meet,” the Letter quoted.

The letter further stated that Hassan has marked several records for Pakistan but the government had paid no attention to his family.

Arif also wrote in the letter that according to the provincial government [KP] this issue is in the process but they did not see any progress since last seven years.

Arif in the letter appealed to the PM Imran Khan to take immediate notice on their issue and try to provide them with the promised land as soon as possible.
