A PAF contingent led by Air Vice Marshal Salman Ahsan
Bukhari, Air Officer Commanding, Southern Air Command, offered ‘Fateha’ and laid a wreath at the grave of Abdul Sattar Edhi on behalf of Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, Chief of the Air Staff, Pakistan Air Force.
The Air Chief, in his message expressed, his heartfelt grief
on the sad demise of Abdul Sattar Edhi, and said he was the pride of humanity, whose contributions and influence transcended borders and nationalities.
The Air Chief also said Edhi was indeed a pioneer in
the field of social service and the models of excellence set by him were replicated world over.
While heading one of the largest private social service in the
world, Edhi lived a very humble life with negligible possession
and wore his greatness lightly.

national character, who has left us a mission; to embrace the love of humanity and work for the well being of the destitute and downtrodden.
