One year back, on 14th January 2012, a bright light which enlightened the entire Pakistan with it’s endless intelligence and childhood maturity, faded away and ended Pakistanis up with wet eyes and heavy hearts.
This Pride of Pakistan was born on 2nd February 1995 as a gift to the nation. 9 years after her birth, in 2004 , she became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional and became the pride of Pakistan. The girl who was born in Chak No. 4JB Ram Dewali in Faisalabad was then invited by Bill Gates to visit the Microsoft Headquarters in the USA.
She gave various interviews and represented Pakistan at many different forums. On 2 August 2005, Arfa Abdul Karim was presented the Fatimah Jinnah Gold Medal in the field of Science and Technology by the then Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shaukat Azeez on the occasion of 113th birth anniversary of Fatimah Jinnah.
In 2011, when Arfa was 16, she suffered a cardiac arrest after an epileptic seizure which greatly damaged her mind and was admitted to the hospital in a critical state where she lost the tug of war between life and death and took off from the world.
This beauty and Pride of Pakistan’s first Death Anniversary is not even acknowledged by many in Pakistan and unfortunately many have long forgotten her. She practically created a positive image of Pakistan in the world and did her best in making a better position of Pakistan in the world of technology but what a pity! We are worshiping those who did nothing but wrote a diary but the one who did something for Pakistan has been ignored.
Rest in Peace Arfa Kareem.
