The rector NUML in his message said that Abdul Sattar Edhi will always be remembered in Pakistanis’ hearts as he has become a great source of inspiration for many organisations and individuals who are working in the country for the rights of vulnerable segments of the society.

Sharing his personal experiences the rector said that Edhi was a saint and a true Muslim who spent his whole life to serve others. “Just imagine that what would have been the fate of our society if Edhi would have not been there, the person like him was a great blessing for the country,” the rector said.
