Lahore, July 10, 2016: President Pakistan Hockey Federation, Brig (R) Khalid Sajjad Khokhar feels honoured to announce the renaming of “Hockey Club of Pakistan” (Stadium in Karachi) as “Abdul Sattar Edhi Hockey Stadium“.
Maulana Edhi was a great humanitarian, philanthropist and a keen social activist. He masterminded Pakistan’s biggest charitable organization single handedly and ran it entirely with private donations making it the biggest Ambulance service in the world.
His success story is an inspiration for Pakistan Hockey especially in present times when our country’s national game is in dire straits. PHF believes that renaming of Hockey’s biggest facility in Abdul Sattar Edhi’s home town in his name would be the most appropriate way to pay tribute to our great national hero. —- PHF
