Bilquis Edhi, 74, passes away in Karachi

KARACHI – Bilquis Bano Edhi, the wife of late Pakistani humanitarian and philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi, has passed away at the age of 74.

She breathed her last at a private hospital where she was under treatment for the past three days after her blood pressure suddenly dropped.

Bilquis Edhi, a professional nurse, was heading the Bilquis Edhi Foundation after the demise of her husband in 2016.

She is survived by four children – Faisal, Kubra, Zeenat and Almas – from her marriage with Abdul Sattar Edhi. 

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has expressed deep grief and sorrow over the death of Mohtarma Bilquis Edhi and paid homage to her for her services to humanity.

In his condolence message, the premier said that Bilquis Edhi continued the mission of late Abdul Sattar Edhi to serve humanity.

He prayed for her highest ranks in Jannah and patience to her family members.

"Sad to learn about the passing of Bilquis Edhi sahiba. She had always been shoulder to shoulder with Abdul Sattar Edhi in his philanthropic efforts and continued his work even after his death," said President Arif Alvi.

Also, prominent figures and people at large expressed their grief over Edhi's demise.
