  • Are you crazy ?? Celebrated is not totally inappropriate word. Paid Tribute should be used instead of celebrated. Correct karo @Amir Bhai

  • Despite PM Nawaz Sharif poor health he did not resist to show his distress over death of Edhi Sahab.He announced to give highest to civilian award to Mr Edhi Sahab.Punjab CM Shabaz Sharif announced to do renaming of places on name the of Mr Edhi.This shows that PMLN value people and work for people.PM Nawaz Sharif also said not to give any special homecoming protocol to me.Despite poor health PM is continuously leading the nation from front.

  • Allah ne jo Eidi ko izzat di, bare bare badshaw in history waha tak na pohanch saky. May Allah give him highest place in Jannat ul firdoos, Ameen.

  • I have copied from same wikipedia link you provided “The award may be awarded posthumously and may also be awarded to an individual more than once”. Posthumously means after death. We need to verify things before commenting as it becomes public property when goes online!
