KARACHI: Sindh Information Technology (IT) Minister Raza Haroon announced on Sunday that the IT Media City in Karachi will be renamed after the World’s Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional Arfa Karim Randhawa.
The project will now be known as Arfa Karim IT Media City.
The decision to rename the mega project was taken on the request of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain.
According to a press release issued by the MQM, the IT Media City is a world class project spread over 200 acres of land near the Super Highway.
Arfa, 16 years old, child prodigy, Microsoft professional and winner of the president’s Pride of Performance, breathed her last on January 14 at the Combined Military Hospital in Lahore.
The IT genius had an epileptic attack on December 22 and had been in a coma since, while well-wishers prayed and watched her progress closely.
