Obituary - Arsalan Ghauri student MS(CS)


Having been born with Thalassemia Major, Arsalan Ghauri, our newly inducted MS(CS) student has left for final abode. It had been a major struggle for him to have come this far and to have been admitted to the IBA despite his physical disability.

Arsalan completed his O and A Levels from a private school in Karachi and went on to pursue his Bachelors in Computer Science from Karachi University which he completed in 2012. He had been working as a mobile application developer for a foreign company and had recently joined IBA for the full time MS(CS) program.

Dr. Nasir Tauheed remembers him in the following words:
"I still remember that fine morning of last month when he entered the Tabba conference room for MS interview. He was full of energy and enthusiasm. Very happy to know that IBA has introduced full time MS in computer science. I am sure he must have established some plans for his future. But God had his own plan for him. I pray that he be granted a place in Paradise. May Allah give the strength to his family to bear this loss. Ameen."

Sarchina Kumari, his classmate remembers him as: "A classmate with whom I hardly took 3 classes, a CR who facilitated in every situation and I never bothered to acknowledge and say thanks, thinking that maybe later on, maybe next day, maybe next week... Over all a courageous and jolly person who was fighting with Thalassemia, left this world today. This realization that I would never be able to say him thanks again, makes me wonder that we, who leave everything on tomorrow don't even realize that even the next moment could be our end."

We, at IBA are very saddened by this loss and the Dean and Director along with rest of IBA convey our condolences to his family.
