KARACHI – A team of artists painted a beautiful picture of Pakistan’s celebrated late mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara on a wall of Karachi in order to pay tribute to the legend in their own way.
An artist Abdul Rahim while talking to Pakistan Observer said that they had held the activity to express the love of Karachi for the climber, who was recently declared dead by his family days after he went missing during K2 expedition.
“It is a gift for the family and friends of Muhammad Ali Sadpara,” he said, adding that his achievements are undeniable.
