This recent photograph from The News shows Abdul Sattar Edhi, probably the greatest living Pakistani, perched on a wheel-chair, collecting donations on a Karachi roadside to buy 1000 new ambulances. The picture, however, is not just a commentary on the humanity of Mr. Edhi but on the givingness of ordinary Pakistanis. A generosity of spirit that no one under-appreciates as much as Pakistanis themselves.

  1. Abdul Sattar Edhi is surely the person which I like the most and I think that if rich people of our country may think like him on the well-being of the masses then there will be no more poverty, deprivation and disruption in our country.

    Indeed Pakistan needs humans like him !

    People understanding the true meaning of “being a human”
    with the rights and duties implied in this constellation of merely words, but when shown towards others is the true humanity, the true being a Pakistani.

    It is humans like Abdul Sattar Edhi that make me convinced that even bound to a wheel-chair a human can do much more than some people living in casttles of Marble.

    May he get tremendous Ayaar for his doings. Ameen

    What a gesture. We need a million Edhis. Why not use some this money for generating energy so much in short supply. Edhi Power Supply Co anyone

  4. I know that Team ATP Adil and Owais have helped many deserving causes thru ATP advertising e.g T2F and TCF Citizen Foundation Schools and many others. Keep up the good work guys.

    What a nice post. Such few words and such a big message. The giving people are all of us and we need to recognize our own sense of self-worth.
