Me... Edhi Proficient
I guess his origins are from my home state of Rajasthan . He is a man of charity famous for ambulances .proud of him that a rajasthani is known for good deeds as our state is a royal state and so are it's people where ever they are .
I am an Edhi Expert. Proud
I scored 10/10 · Scored 100% - Result: Edhi Expert - WOW, wish there were more such humble beings in the world. Edhi should have been a Nobel prize winner instead of Obama, Al Gore or malala yousafzai (way too young, has time...).
9 out of 10
I got 9 but I am ashamed. The 'correct' answers to several of the questions were guesses. The truth is that if this was not multiple choice but straight questions, the number of correct answers would not have been more than 2-3. While we know so much about, heroes of Bollywood and Hollywood our knowledge of our true hero is abysmal.
Happy to know I achieved 100% on the quiz though I follow Edhi Sahab from far.
He is a beacon of light for the potential social workers
Nice quiz...got 8 out of 10. Good to know more about Sir Edhi
Sitting at the top of world's largest ambulance network, taking care of thousands and thousands of orphans... with only two sets of shalwar kameez...
My profound respects to this GREAT MAN ON EARTH
I stand up and salute you Sir
very knowledgeable and nice quiz I scored 6/10
Got 80 percent but honestly speaking some of them were common sense guesses. But overall very informative initiative.
Edhi expert! For all those interested in getting to know more about him read his autobiography by tehmina durrani. Amazing book!
Though am not living in his country, I love Nana.
I know him for last 60 years as a member of Batwa ( memon ) community and used to run dispensary in late 1950' and used to sleep outside dispensary on charpoy ( cot) at night for being bachelor and used to help anyway one in need of. He has been honored by US former President G. Bush for his social work. Former President of Pakistan Zia ul haque has honored Sattar Edhi his welfare work and his devotion What does do nowadays is known to every Pakistani citizens in and out of Pakistan by last couple of decades
I not only admire but respect Abdul Sattar Edhi for the sincerity with which he has implemented his charitable work
Nice way to remember things in mind
Abdul Sattar Edhi saheb is my popular social work. He is internationally known. Nation cannot forget his services to the needy people. I appeal to the international community to support him on his social and humanitarian services for the Noble Prize.
Edhi is a real hero. If he does not get a Nobel, the loser will be Nobel, not the Great Edhi.
i am Edhi Proficient. Proud of Him. and my score.
I am an Edhi expert :)
Good. Indian state of Gujarat had produced great men like Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Eidhi and Modi.
Lives in 2 room house and has 2 set of shalear qamees!!!
Mr.Edhi born in Bantva a famous town of Junaghar state.
This is called true spirituality.
It is rare to find a selfless person in Pakistan like him, living a very simple life, serving the humanity under very difficult situations, established an institution that is serving Pakistanis irrespective of cast, color or religion.
If any person who deserves a Nobel Prize as a worldly recognition for serving the humanity in this world, that person is Abdul Sattar Edhi. He may not win the Nobel Prize in this world but InshaAllah he may be rewarded a higher place in Aakhirat for his relentless and sefless services to the poor people .
Quizzes are interesting than wikipedia
Me, EDHI EXPERT
His actions are like in the "Global Anthem Change our World" on YouTube
He is the Great since all his action is true patriotic to save Humanity
There is only a couple of things that you need to know about this man, the only things that matter:
He is a living Saint and we will probably never have another like him in the future.
Being a Gujarati I am proud of him
Not enough words for him..salute
I scored 70%. Great!
i worked with mr edhi in 2005 eartquake and 2010 flood relief in ppakistan, we came from south africa to give aid,we worked a great deal with mr edhi, the gift to mankind,an angel
Waooo...Edhi expert ... in first attempt....feeling proud :)
may he live long!
he loves pakistan
we are pakistan
so, we love him....
also like this activity
Most of the answers are predictable.
Great very compassionate Man, as only Gujarati can be. Gandhi of Pakistan.
A S Edhi is undoubtedly the only living being whose qualities in service of humanity are and have been superb. There is no need to put it to vote. Had he been from a western country, he would have received the Nobel Peace Prize long ago.May he be Blessed by the Creator!
Dawn: Great ! Thanks for obliging my request with this piece.
All nations need Edhi sahebs.
Next: Campaign for Nobel for Edhi saheb. Again, Dawn, you should take the lead.
I did not scored high (less than 50%) but Edhi is one guy whom I whole heartedly respect and wish I could help Edhi Foundation in my life
hats off to this great men, a living spicemen of saints and sufis that we read in books, he makes us proud as a Pakistani, may God bless him
Quiz is the best tool of providing pertinent information about Edhi sahab and his social service.
My head is bown to the feets of Edhi Baba for his services to humanity. Punjab @ India
Nation has proud to you Abdul Sattar Edhi , we are really thankful to u and your servants who serve for us and specially for poors and orphans anothers
No doubt this Saint deserves Noble Prize for his services to the humanity irrespective of caste, colour, religion, contagious or non-contagious disease, those shunned by society, the downtrodden, addicts, and so on. He is one of a kind.
He must be honoured with Noble prize
He was born in India, Gujrat like Gandhi!
Please donate to his charity.Talk is cheap no excuses
@Tamilselvan - None greater than Jinnah!
@Abdur Rahman Congratulation, now emulate him. It is because of people like him that Pakistan will have a bright future. Do good like Nana Edhi is doing.
He seems to do good job
4/10, too bad
Eadhi is great man
No religion is higher than humanity: Edhi
Abdul Sattar Edhi: The most respected philanthropist, the great soul, the identity & the ideal of Pakistan.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
But very sad, because Edhi has already left us for a better life!
May he rest in eternal peace.
@Battleaxe Edhi Saheb hailed from Indian Gujrat. He was born at Bantva, Gujrat.
His birthplace was Bantva, Indian Gujrat.
The best thing that could happen to Pakistan. It is this man I believe who carried Pakistan; for folks like that General Zia; left no stone unturned to burry it. I do not see another to take his place. God have mercy on our land.
Another Saintly Man from Gujarat, India. Gandhi is another and Jinnah family was Gujarati
A great soul from Gujarat. I guess Gujarat has a way to produce some dynamic and humble figures throughout its history be it Mahatma Gandhi or Nana Edhi.
Its about following Edhi sb., doesnt matter score...............
well, 70% , so far above par. I think there should be Edhi award created instead of Nobel Award to Edhi.
Bilquis Edhi is equally iconic.
I am an Edhi expert.
They did not give him Nobel Peace prize!
He was above and beyond Nobel peace prize!
He did not need any Nobel peace prize! Nobel peace prize needed him!
Every Pakistani is an Edhi Expert!
10/10 I am happy to know a bit of Edhi Sahib.
@Battleaxe From Bantva Gujrat not Rajasthan
What a wonderful man. May he rest in peace.
He believed in hope, in justice, in charity and in giving to others.
We have lost a true hero today. I am in state of deep sadness.
No word isin any language of the world to show respect or sadness on death of Abdul Sattar Edhi sahib.Mother nature rarely produce such humans like Abdul Sattar Edhi a true soul, simplest person, dedicated to his mission of life, kind,loving, down to earth, humble & more than a Saint or Sufi. No religion is higher than Humanity, it was philosophy of Abdul Sattar Edhi. a unique person, a great anthropologist, a spiritually faqir but practical man #RIP 1928-2016
@Tamilselvan We hope that Modi turns out to be a man focused on the needs of other human beings regardless of the their race or religion. We can hope... it is possible.
The people of subcontinent, whether they live on east side of the border or the west side, admire men like Gandhi ji and Edhi sahib. May God bless their souls.
The passin gawaay ofaGReAt and NOBLE PRSOn who served the humanity n TRue sense.
With malice to none and love forall. Literally I do know how to express my grief. A person like you do not come soon
A great soul departed but his actions should live on his works should continue if pakistani nation wants to keep the great Eidhi sahib alive spread his words follow his path help the helpless in any way you can.
This is a very creative idea for providing information about Nana Abdul Sattar Edhi. The questions are utterly describing his life. An appreciative work. hats off
An EDHI Expert ... Great Feeling...
Edhi is well known in India for this philanthropic work. Remember seeing him on TV years ago, selling match sticks and raising money for his ambulances.
World has lost a great soul.
Such people are rare. They are the ones whose service transecends the differences between human beings created by themselves such as caste and creed. He chose to become a mendicant of humanity and not its merchant. This rendered him immortal. RIP.
Only thing I know about him that run a charity foundation , I scored 7/10.
A big loss indeed for humanity. What is more important now is to carry his message forward.
Btw proud to belong to Bantva Memon community like him.
We propose that in recognition of invaluable services of Mr. Abdul Sattar Edhi for humanity and Pakistani nation. Government of Pakistan should issue a commemorative coin.
If you endorse this suggestion, kindly forward this message on social media.
7/10 · Scored 70%
Result: Edhi Proficient
I am sure born in India factor is one factor for his good deeds :)
In Nov,1987 my Father suffered an Asthma attack.My Father needed Oxygen in emergency. despite that we use to live where many famous hospitals are situated, not one was able to provide us with Oxygen at our home.Then we called Edhi center situated at Kharadar which was quite far from our home.To our utmost surprise, not only Edhi ambulance came with oxygen, but Edhi sb himself came.RIP Edhi Sb.
We understood humanity by seeing Edhi sahib. (RIP)
scored 8/10 , proud to know little bit about great man
only knowing him is not important following his path with availble resources that one own is what matters
edhi means humanity.... no religion, no cast, no sect, no color.
Great great man of the world. That is all one can say. Our prayers are for him and his family.
Abdul Sattar Edhi I stand up and salute you. You are Pakistan.
Edhi Sahib should have received the Nobel Prize. It adorns smaller men. He did not get it it. The Nobel did not deserve Edhi. He was too big for it, as was Mahatma Gandhi who too did not receive it. I am proud that he was originally from India. Now we can boast of one more hero. Thank you Edhi Sahib and may God send down a replacement. It is sorely needed.
in fact,he has burnt himself and gave light to others
Wish we follow his principles of serving humanity selflessly!
The premise is:The highest of distinctions is service to others.
such great people shall not be born any more. We hardly have any other organisation which is equivalent to Eidi Foundation.
@Siddiqui be like him... proficient will not help.. knowledge without its usage is useless..
interesting comments... can any one proudly say we or i want to be like him...
Please donate Edhi Foundation they need funds to run the ambulance service .
Excellent - Google honored Edhi by it's doodle today.
Of all the quizzes that Dawn posts about the extent to which we know celebrities, this is the first time I feel ashamed that I didn't know more. I got 60% but all of us humans (Pakistanis or not) should try to learn more about this great man.
@Battleaxe He was born in a sleeping town of Bantava, a princely state of Junagadh district in the Indian state of Gujarat
Maybe I do not know much about Edhi sahib but what I know that he is a true humanitarian. He started from scratch with his wife, and sons in a small place. Then he gradually opened a office near the old Sabzi Mandi, University Road, with them. He gave first class service to all his clients. He had ambulances, a mortuary, food for poor and many more then lately he used helicoo\pters for remote areas to bring persons from there to the city. His entire family was involved in this namely wife, an children. Then he made a mortuary for the dead persons to keep them (mortuary is not correct word) where people who had no one to claim could be kept for the relatives to find them. He was a great hero alongwith him his entire family have dedicated themselves to this service. There r lots of things to mention but maybe I also may not be knowing some of them. but to mention Edhi sahib he was a great man. Long live his Edhi Foundation. hk
Proud of Edhi. I hope we teach about Sattar Edhi in schools and colleges.
Best quiz by DAWN ever.
The great personality of Pakistan, who served it the way other have not so far. Pakistanis are indebted to him for his services.
I would love to die like Edhi-left many orphaned and played his part before death.
Salute to you Sir!
Edhi Sa'ab should have been awarded the Nobel while he was alive.. now at least his Foundation should be recognised by the Nobel Committee in future years..
A person who sacrifice his own happiness for the sake of others.
legend of pakistan.
Hundred times salute to him.
He was Mother Teresa of Pakistan, he should have been awarded by Nobel Prize rather then giving Nobel Price to malala yousafzai.
Well I would say only EDHI.
Edhi was great, I am looking to honour an Award from an Association every year, Monetary Award to a student.
And like his son / administration to contact me
Edhi is the real hero of Pakistan.I think as muslim we should do our duty as citizen, we should follow this great personality.Great Ehdi miss you lot.....
Edhi is the real hero of Pakistan.We feel proud that he is the son of our country and we should try to follow Edhi , do work for benifit of humbeing. miss you Edhi....
since my childhood Hero, the Great man, God give place in Paradise.
Edhi was a memon not a real gujtati. Memoms hailed from Sindh mostly from Thatta. About 400 years back those memons moved to gujrat for better business opportunities. At the time of independence many memons moved back to pakistan.
Google honoring Mr Edhi today with a google doodle. The whole world knows this man today. Respect!
@Tamilselvan Sir, You missed Jinnah. I would not put Sardar Patel in the league of greats such as Edhi, Jinnah, and Gandhi as he was called 'Communalist' by Nehru himself.
Thanks to google.
I could not score! I could not open the quiz as it is blocked in my Lap Top.
BUT I know Edhi ji. If INDO-PAK problem was handed over to him, he could have solved it within a year.Some years ago, when Dawn published an article about his life, I have commented that Edhi is a right candidate for NOBEL PEACE PRIZE! Thats Edhi's power
Only wish for his legacy to live on. We the People of the world miss you desperately Mr Eidhi, Google stands witness to it.
@Tamilselvan Also Jinah
I scored 9/10.
Indian living in USA I know very little about him. The quiz was informative.
Nana was a Great soul! He is above Noble prize!
For such a personality score should have been 10/10.
However scores do not matter here .
World and especially Pakistan needs many many more Edhi's.
Salute to real human being.
Let human bombs learn.
Marks about his life: 9.5/10
Great great man of the world. That is all one can say. Our prayers are for him and his family.
Edhi is an IDEAL. I tell the high headed muslims in India to at least acknowledge the work of Edhi Sahab and there is none second to Edhi Saheb for just one reason, he is not funded by a foreign counry. And i am surprised to know that mullas of Pak do malign him too... Pity..
Edhi Expert :) .. I didnt think I'm, I just selected the best available answers.. and they were alright .. rest in peace Edhi Sahab
Thankfully 50% know him
good to know
