News of passing away of Maulana Abdus Sattar Edhi was heard with lot of grief and pain across the globe. Maulana shed all the differences that divide human beings and rose above all sorts of biases, he set high moral standards that would be remembered and praised for all times to come. People like Maulana Edhi are a source of inspiration for millions across the world.

His message through his work was the message of humanity. He is a perfect example of cause motivation; despite his low level formal education and his belonging to lower income strata of Pakistani society he set an example of great commitment and belief. He stood firm against the opposition of greedy and interest seekers. He was a man of few words but countless deeds. All sections of Pakistani society are paying tribute to the deceased but the real question is that how many of our nation can actually follow the path of Maulana Edhi.

If there is one name that all Pakistanis can agree upon, it’s none other but Maulana Abdus Sattar Edhi. He has certainly set the bar very high. God may bless is soul.
