Ghulam Muhammad, born in Passu village of Sub-Division Gojal, District Hunza, was one of the most famous leaders of the movement aimed at abolishment of Mirdom in Hunza. He was imprisoned and tortured at the order of the last ruler of Hunza as punishment for his efforts aimed at mobilizing the masses against the Mir of Hunza.

Former technocrat MLA, Mutabiat Shah has praised the late leader calling him a “a man of strong principles, of political ideology, of steel nerves, undettered of any hardships, true to his words and beliefs.”

“He was the man who bravely bore the torturous captivity at the notorious ‘Gupey Thaang’ of the Baltit Fort, where from no prisoner was lucky enough to come out alive”, said Mutabiat Shah in a social media post.

Ghulam Muhammad led Pakistan Peoples Party in Hunza after the state was abolished in 1974 by the then Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. He was an entrepreneur engaged in the tourism industry.

He will be laid to rest in Passu, Gojal Valley, his native village.
