Provincial Minister for Human Rights and Minority Affairs Khalil Tahir Sindhu has proposed that an “Edhi Award” be introduced at Provincial and Federal level in order to promote the spirit of humanity expressed by Edhi.
“Edhi was a saviour for humanity. People such as Edhi are born after centuries,” the minister said at a prayer ceremony held in commemoration of Abdul Sattar Edhi here on Sunday. He said that Edhi was the bright face of Pakistan. He said although Edhi had left the temporal world but his philosophy would live forever.
“Edhi’s life is an example of simplicity, honesty, commitment and love for humanity,” Sindhu said urging that all should learn from Edhi’s life and his services for the poor, needy and orphans.
Khalil Tahir Sindhu said that prayer ceremonies have been held in churches, temples and gurdwaras in every city of Punjab to pay homage to Edhi. -Business Recorder
