KARACHI: Faisal Edhi, the son of the late Abdul Sattar Edhi, has thanked the nation for giving a befitting farewell to his late father and legendary social worker and philanthropist.

While talking to media on Sunday, Faisal acknowledged the love and the support the people exhibited during the lifetime and after the death of his father. “Even if I am reluctant to carry out the charity work of my father, the public will force him to keep on with the brilliant legacy left behind by Edhi Sahab,” he said.

He said that the people have been asking him to wear the clothes and the cap of Edhi. He said that he wore the historical cap of the late Edhi at the time of his funeral and burial. “The cap has a lot of power.”

He said that the two donated eyes of the late Edhi have successfully grafted to two blind people of Karachi and now they will see with his eyes.

While quoting the late Edhi, he said that the departed legend would say there were two forces working in the world - one his evil and the other good. He said that his father had advised him to shoes the good path.
