Why Abdul Sattar Edhi Was a Greatest Pakistani Humanitarian?
“My religion is humanitarianism, which is the basis of every religion in the world.”
Some people die but are never forgotten. Abdul Sattar Edhi is one of the legends who will be remembered by every single individual. Today on 08-07-2021 his 5th death anniversary we pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest humanitarians and benevolent. He was one of the world’s richest yet the poorest man who served all his life to humanity. Abdul Sattar Edhi was a Pakistani humanitarian, philanthropist and ascetic who founded the Edhi Foundation, which runs the world’s largest volunteer ambulance network, along with various homeless shelters, animal shelters, rehabilitation centers, and orphanages across Pakistan. Edhi was born in 1928 in a small village in India. He was known for his charitable works and he was the father or nana of thousands of homeless children. At the time when people was opposed to women’s education, Edhi gave education to the girls and thought of them as his own daughter’s. He was the true phenomenon of women’s right. Most Pakistani’s called him Angel of Mercy and was considered one of the greatest respectable man. On the day of his death thousands of people came to his funeral. The media covered the whole exequy and was marked one of the largest funeral in the history. Despite of giving millions to the people on daily basis, Abdul Sattar Edhi never became arrogant and conceited. He was the example of simplicity and integrity. Edhi gave his 60 years of life to Pakistan and to the people of Pakistan. He serves the humanity without any fear. Many times he was detained by countries because of his personality yet he never changed them for anyone.
Abdul Sattar Edhi showed by his actions that not everyone is self involved and do care about the humanity. He proved that humanity is above all the religion and casts. Today, on his 5th death anniversary we all honor him for all his life time work. May his soul rest in peace. GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.
