Lahore 8th July: The nation commemorated services of prominent philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi on his third death anniversary Monday.
Abdul Sattar Edhi started welfare services in 1951.
He later established world’s largest volunteer ambulance network along with homeless shelters, animal shelters and orphanages across the country.
Many international and national awards, including Nishan-e-Imtiaz were bestowed upon him in recognition of his services for humanity.
A few qoutes from the famous Edhi:
“So, many years later there were many who still complained and questioned, ‘Why must you pick up Christians and Hindus in your ambulance?’ And I was saying, ‘Because the ambulance is more Muslim than you’.”
“My religion is humanitarianism, which is the basis of every religion in the world.”
“Appearance is a distraction, surrendering it develops truth and humility in abundance.”
Rest in peace, Edhi sahab. You indeed were the richest poor man.
