Abdul Sattar Edhi 1928-2016: Google pays tribute


Abdul Sattar Edhi 1928-2016: Google pays tribute

KARACHI: Google Search engine is today honoring unmatched Pakistani humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi by putting his name and his year of birth and death on front of its Pakistani page.

Google duly paid tribute to the legend who has served whole his life struggling for the cause of humanity not only in Pakistan but throughout the world as well.

It has made a hyperlink of Abdul Sattar Edhi’s name, just below the search bar, which will open a new page with links of news and information about the saint.

Edhi, 88, died late on Friday after a long kidney illness, triggering an outpouring of grief in the impoverished nation of 190 million for a man who transcended social, ethnic and religious divisions.

Over nearly 60 years Edhi’s charitable arm, the Edhi Foundation, established clinics and orphanages across Pakistan and ran a vast fleet of ambulances, offering help to poor communities failed by inadequate public health and welfare services.

Keeping up with its own tradition, Google paid such a homage to Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on his 67th birthday with a doodle in October 2015 and after the incident of Army Public School Peshawar it had lit a candle ‘In memory of the victims in Peshawar’ in December 2014.
