    Press Release
    NPP express shock & condolences on unfortunate demise of Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan
    The Panthers Party expressed deep shock on the demise of Sardar Mohd. Abdul Qayyum Khan, former Prime Minister & President of Pak-side of J&K, who passed away this morning at his official residence in Islamabad. Prof.Bhim Singh in his condolence message to Sardar Attique Khan, former Prime Minister of POK & son of Sardar Mohd. Abdul Qayyum Khan expressed sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family which has been actively engaged in the State Affairs for decades.
    Prof.Bhim Singh in his message to Sardar Attique Khan and the members of the Muslim Conference said that the people of J&K have lost a great leader of the century whereas, “I have lost a noble guide, friend and philospher who always stood for peaceful co-existence of India and Pakistan. He was a great champion of dialogue between the leaders of India and Pakistan and never compromised on the status of Gilgit & Baltistan. He has been arguing through his speeches and writings that Gilgit-Baltistan should not be dissected from J&K. As Chairman of Intra J&K ‘Heart to Heart’ Talks he led delegation from Pak-side in 2005 and again in 2007. He was the only POK leader who had interacted with BJP leadership including the then Opposition Leader Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Shri L.K. Advani in New Delhi. In 2007, he had exclusive meeting and held dialogue with the then Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh. Sardar Qayyum Khan was the first leader from Pak-side of J&K who called on Dr. Karan Singh, the son of the last Monarch of J&K in New Delhi and hosted an official lunch in his honour. He was expected to chair third Intra J&K ‘Heart to Heart’ Talks convened by Prof.Bhim Singh in New Delhi in September. I feel terribly grieved, pains, hurt and sad on the death of such a noble man who had a great role to play in the resolution of the situation in J&K. I wish a place in the heavens for the departed soul and hope that we shall be able to fulfill the agenda, Sardar Mohd. Abdul Qayyum Khan had in his mind. Everlasting peace between India and Pakistan and final resolution of J&K through peace and dialogue.”
