It took me ages to go through that book, for one I m a slow reader and I’d like to take my time to digest whats in there. Honestly I don’t read much, but this books gets you thinking.
And since recently we’ve be occupied with sad news mostly around Karachi and Pakistan in general, this books gives way to hope, hope that some one out there is still willing to risk all to help humanity, and no matter what religion, caste, sector or occupation you’re from you can still help make a difference.
Humanitarian lies the basis of all religions and thats what will push this nation forward.
Despite the dire circumstances that Pakistan has witnessed over the last five decades, the people of this nation have unconsciously created their own system. A system of self help by the people an for the people. They are it’s sole inheritors and will protect it when they know what they have achieved.
-Abdul Sattar Edhi
Going through Abdul Sattar Edhi’s life experiences, his problems, his achievements, his professional and personal life and how they blend into each other gets you to think what one is doing in their own capacity for the ones that need help.
It talks about where Edhi would stand up and take charge where even the law enforcers would back down. Rotting, decaying dead bodies.. injured civilians and soldiers, psychotics and what not.. Edhi would be there to help out, this book is about those achievements, those little things that would go unaccounted for and would not have made its way to us had this book not be written.
Thank you Edhi Sahib & Tehmina Durrani for taking the time to bring this book to us. It’s majorly appreciated.
Thank you Mahaa Ali for lending me this book.
