Karachi—As a mark of tribute to the departing soul of humanitarian Abdus Sattar Edhi the Defence Housing Authority has named one of its main roads after him, said an announcement here.
The Beachview Avenue, running across the sea shore in Phase 7, will now be called Avenue Abdus Sattar Edhi, the announcement stresses the great initiative on the part of the DHA to pay its respect to the eminent personality who left us for permanent abode last Friday night.
Five kilometre long road sees huge traffic, and picnikcers coming to the sea in Clifton almost daily, and crowding it on eid and other festivals, holidays etc. It extends from Khayaban-e-Itehad to Do Darya. The decision to name the DHA street after Edhi was taken on July 4. A sign board have been erected on it.
