    Truly very sad news about the missing of those young people. We do offer our condolences to the family and friends and pray for the souls to rest in eternal peace. I do believe there is an efforts to communicate with rest of those who have fortunately survived!

    We did met Tawakal and his brother in Pindi and feel sorry for not being able to join them to Chupursan.

    Thanks alot to all for their prayers and kind sentiments.

    It was a great loss for all of us indeed and specially for Chipursan valley, which is by the way one of remotest and disaster prone areas in Gilgit Baltistan.

    On behalf of the family of Saeed Ahmed Khan, I would like to thank all of those who gave so much care and confidence to us during these testing hours. Right from Islamabad to Gilgit, Hunza, Gojal and ultimately Chipursan, our brothers and sisters showed to us that we are not alone in these moments of trial and tribulation, specially while my nephews were travelling from Islamabad. In my visit to Chipursan while accompanying Tawkal and Shabbir, I could see a sense of loss and psychological damage all over but at the same time, the presence of thousands of people from all over Gojal, Hunza and other parts of the country gave us a ray of hope. indeed we owe great deal of gratitude to all of those who gave us so much care and offered their prayers. May the departed souls rest in eternal peace and may Allah Almighty give us strength and courage to withstand this irreparable loss by virtue of the kind prayers from our well wishers (Amin)
