Khuswant Singh once said in an interview that if he ever got the chance to touch the feet of few great people in the world, Abdul Sattar Edhi would be one of them, for service to humanity over many decades. Undoubtedly, Edhi is a very noble and respected person and it is unfortunate that he had to experience robbery, it is an outrageous incident which happened in broad daylight, robbers stormed the head office of the Edhi Foundation, where they held staff members including Abdul Sattar Edhi hostage, before fleeing with valuables worth millions of rupees. It is safe to say that no one is safe in Pakistan. All his life, this living legend, has been running one of the country’s largest charities. It is time the government took some serious action and caught the culprits.
