Living & Dying for Humanity

In a country like Pakistan, where common people take pride in blaming all the evil doers for the bleak condition of the country, the name of Abdul Sattar Edhi is a glimpse of hope and light. Legendary saint-like philanthropist of Pakistan died on 8th July 2016. An era served for humanity and mankind ended with the death of an angel.

Migrating from India and coming to Pakistan with deprived resources, Edhi developed the aim to prevent his people to suffer from what he went through during his social struggle. Starting off with just one single Edhi ambulance, he developed an entire network of ambulances to serve people.

Other than the network of Edhi ambulances, he worked with his soul mate wife Bilquis Edhi to develop shelter homes for thousands of homeless, orphaned and abandoned Pakistanis. His existence gave life to so many children in the country. He not only orphaned his kids but numerous others, which were given a new life by him.

For people like us, Edhi should not just be a remembrance or a symbol of humanity but it should rather be an ideology, which should be promoted by every humane person of the society. Your education, religion and everything else is nothing if you are not emphatic towards other species like you.

In the present times, where people are killing one another for the sake of religion and sectarian differences, Edhi’s religion of humanity serves the purpose of keeping the nation united and proud.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
