Veteran of Skardu war passes away

He joined the Chitral Scouts in the early age of his life and was a part of the troops that took on the Dogra forces of the then Kashmir state in the mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan in the 1948 Indo-Pakistan war. Sifat Ghazi used to say that the Chitralis valiantly fought against the enemy to liberate the area after living in caves for weeks without food till the Dogra army was forced to retreat. The deceased is survived by his sons Alwaiz Haibat Ali, Engineer Muhammad Wali, nephews Haji Amwakht Ali, village council naib nazim Eid Ali and retired AC Zarmast Ali. Sifat Ghazi was laid to rest at his ancestral graveyard in the presence of a large number of people.–Karimullah]]>
