0

Edhi’s war was against prejudice, cruelty .No politics, no fatwas, no greed. Just humanity for the sake of humanity.

Prominent Pakistani philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi has died from renal failure, his family has said. He was 88.

Earlier on Friday, Faisal Edhi told a news conference that his father was in critical condition at the intensive care unit of a Karachi hospital.

The 88-year-old died Friday night in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city. He had been ill for weeks, and had needed a new kidney since 2013, but was too frail for a transplant. His family’s announcing of his death led to an outpouring of grief.

He was a hero to Pakistan’s poor and needy

Edhi final words
میرے ملک کے گریبو کا کیال دکنا  | Take care of the poor people of my country.

“He wished to be buried in the same clothes he used to wear. He also wanted to donate his body parts, but only his cornea can be donated as rest of the organs were not in healthy condition,” said Faisal Edhi.

Edhi’s funeral prayers will be offered on Saturday after Zuhr prayers at the National Stadium, after which he will be laid to rest at Edhi village.
