1 The Senate of Pakistan expresses deep sorrow on the sad demise of the National hero and hero of humanity, Abdul Sattar Edhi. It is a great loss not only to the Pakistani nation but to the whole world and humanity. May Allah rest the departed soul in eternal peace and give the courage to the nation and his family members to bear this irreparable loss. Abdul Sattar Edhi was a prominent Pakistani philanthropist, social activist, ascetic and humanitarian. He was the founder and head of the Edhi Foundation in Pakistan and ran the organization for the better part of six decades. Abdul Sattar Edhi was born in 1928 in a small village of Bantva near Joona Garh, Gujrat (India). The seeds of compassion for the suffering humanity were sown in his soul by his mother’s infirmity. When Edhi was at the tender age of eleven, his mother became paralysed and later got mentally ill. Young Abdul Sattar devoted himself for looking after all her needs; cleaning, bathing, changing clothes and feeding. Even at this early age, he felt personally responsible for taking on the challenge of developing a system of services to reduce human miseries. The task was huge he had no resources. But it was something that he had to do even if he had to walk to the streets if he had to beg for this purpose. Edhi and his family migrated to Pakistan in 1947. In order to earn his living, Abdul Sattar Edhi initially started as a peddler, later became a commission agent selling cloth in the wholesale market in Karachi. Despite his enormous fame and the vast sums of money that passes through his hands, Edhi adhered to a very simple and modest life style. Although Mr. Edhi had a traditional Islamic background yet he had an open and progressive mind on a number of sensitive social issues. He strongly supported the notion of working women which can be reflected from the fact that out of the 2,000 paid workers of the Edhi Foundation around dOO are women. This House pays tribute to Mr. Abdul Sattar Eidhi for his selfless services to the humanity particularly to the neglected and marginalized segment of society. He was a great legend, ambassador of humanity, a selfless soul who devoted his life for serving the humanity, sheltering orphans and serving helpless people. His countless services to humanity will be remembered forever. This House recommends that 8th July, the day on which Mr. Abdul Sattar Edhi left the world, may be observed as "Edhi Day”, to commemorate the services of Mr. Abdul Sattar Edhi and to encourage the youth to follow his footsteps Government Adopted
