He had said he wasn't sure about his Nanga Parbat summit and that he was going to try again. Well... he did.
The expedition also set a record because Muhammad Ali Sadpara is the first and only Pakistani who got to the summit of Nanga Parbat 4 times.

"We are heading back to city.
We 8 climbers made Nanga Parbat 8125m Summit on 02-10-2017 at 12:40pm. We had really good weather during our climb and we are all safely back from mountain.
We are sorry for no updates as our friends suggested us not to give any information about this climb.
By this climb, I understood that Pakistan's tourism agencies need to focus on Autumn climbing and trekking around Nanga Parbat area as the weather remains very fine and clear all the days.
Congratulations to all climbers on Manaslu for successful ascent and other climbers who made safe descent from Dhaulagiri and Makalu.
Ps: photo and videos will be shared once we are back in city.
