  9. It is a great lose for the deprived people of Gilgit Baltistan. Maqpoon fought for the enslaved inhabitants of GB and term the region ” constitution less land”. We will continue his mission till the day of freedom.

  10. Though late Raja maqpoon is no longer amongst us but his selfless services for truth and honesty would be recalled for ever. May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace and give courage to his family to bear this irrepearable loss.It is hoped his colleagues would continue his mission ahead.
