The climbers, from the Netherlands, Singapore, and Ecuador, aimed to conquer K2, known for its treacherous conditions and high fatality rate among the world's tallest mountains.

After the rescue, the army provided immediate medical aid and warmth to the grateful climbers, who were thankful for being brought to safety.

Islamabad: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Barrister Danyal Chaudhry Wednesday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) allegedly working to undermine the country both economically and strategically.

Speaking to a private news channel, he said that PTI was engaging in a deliberate campaign to weaken Pakistan’s institutions and stability.

Chaudhry said that PTI’s actions, including mocking state institutions and martyrs, are part of a well-orchestrated conspiracy.

“Mocking our institutions and martyrs is a calculated move,” he stated. “Such behavior, aimed at fostering chaos and hatred, cannot be tolerated.”

He said that the ideals of progress and those promoting chaos cannot coexist. “The thought that weakens Pakistan must be eradicated; this country cannot surrender to such ideologies.”

The PML-N leader also pointed to specific evidence of PTI’s alleged disruptive activities, including the burning of effigies of martyrs and attacks on state installations.

These actions are clear indications of their intention to stigmatize and destabilize, he said.
