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 the philanthropist’s 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 the country, a DHA statement read.

It pointed out that Beach Avenue is the most popular road of the metropolis which is frequented by the people visiting the sea in large numbers for entertainment and relaxation.

The renaming of the avenue is a befitting tribute to the great voluntary and ascetic services of Sattar Edhi which are acknowledged worldwide.

DHA Administrator Brig Zubair Ahmed eulogised the legendary 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 Sattar Edhi which, he said, was the voice emanating from the heart of every Pakistani in the country.
