  1. بالائی چترال کی نامور سخصیت سابق صدر اسماعیلی ریجنل کونسل اپر چترال امیر افصل خان نے سابق گورنر پیر کرم علی شاہ کی وفات پرگہرے غم کا اظہار کیا ہے۔ انہوں نے پیر(مرحوم) کی رحلت کو گلگت بلتسان اور چترال کے لیے ایک بڑا سانحہ قرار دیتے ہوئے پسماندہ گان کے ساتھ اپنی دلی ہمدری کا اظہار کیا ہے۔ انہوں نے کہا ہے کہ پیرصاحب گو کہ گلگت بلتسان میں آبا د تھے لیکن اُن کے آباو اجداد نے اپر چترال کو اپنا مسکن بنایا تھا۔ لہذا (مرحوم) چترال کے فرزند تھے۔

    پیر (مرحوم) کی چترال کےلیے خدمات قابل تحسین ہیں۔ پیر(مرحوم) اپنے دور اقتدار سے پہلے بھی چترال کو اپنا گھر سمجھتے تھے اور اقتدار میں آنے کے بعد بھی ہر لیٹ فارم میں چترال کا نام لیتے رہے۔ آج پیر (مرحوم) کی وفات کی خبر سن کر پوری قوم سوگوار ہے۔ ہماری دعا ہے کہ رب کائینات پیر(مرحوم) کو جنت فردوس میں جگہ عطا فرمائے۔د
