Courtesy: Edhi.org At 74, Bilquis Edhi passed away at a hospital in Karachi, five years after her husband, whom she worked alongside to provide all…
Bilqees Edhi was a mother countless children looked up to as their own. I met this dynamic lady at her orphanage in 2008, and talked to her about motherhood, the motherless and her own mother.

And each time it happens, many people are more interested in knowing what the woman did to drive the man to this brutality and then there are also justifications of the guy being a drug addict, or mentally unstable or a ‘girat-mand’ who was driven to it by a twisted sense of honour.

And if we have an honest look at our behaviour towards our mother, and parents in general, we will realise so many things that we are doing right, and which we should continue with, but we will also find some things in our behaviour that can be improved.
