He endured the hardships of imprisonment and captivity, and for the Kashmiris, he left a message in the form of slogans as he departed from this fleeting world, saying, “We are Pakistanis, Pakistan is ours. Kashmir is Pakistan’s destination, and Kashmiris have always sacrificed their lives for the defense, security, progress, and prosperity of Pakistan.”

He spent the last twelve years of his life in the captivity of the cruel enemy India in the worst state of health, but his commitment to independence remained unwavering.

He stated that Syed Ali Gilani was a towering figure of steadfastness. His entire life is a testament to relentless struggle, and until his last breath, he remained committed to the mission of freedom from India.
