KARACHI: The Executive Board of DHA in a meeting chaired by its President Commander 5 Corps Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar decided to rename Beach Avenue on Seaview in DHA Phase VIII as Abdul Sattar Edhi Avenue in recognition of his legendary services to the humanity.
The epoch making decision is reflective of the deep seated reverence of the nation for prominent Pakistani philanthropist and social activist whose charity and social work has changed the face of welfare in Pakistan.
It is pertinent that Beach Avenue is the most popular road of the metropolis which is frequented by the people coming to the sea in a large number for entertainment and relaxation. The renaming of the avenue as such is a befitting tribute to the great voluntary and ascetic services of Mr. Edhi which are acknowledged worldwide.
Administrator DHA Brig Zubair Ahmed eulogized the legandary social figure whose voluntary and dedicated social work for the humanity is epitome of his spiritual and moral greatness. He said the same will continue to inspire and rekindle the light of hope and optimism in young generation.
The Administrator prayed for the health, long life and well being of Abdul Sattar Edhi which he said was the voice emanating from the heart of every true Pakistani in the country.
