Karachi gear up for another World Record
From the people who organized the “Most people singing the National Anthem Together” record last year on August 14, 2011 at Karachi are back to stage another World Record. This time they are aiming to break the largest gathering of people with the same first name. The record for largest gathering of people with the same first name was created in Dubai Shopping Festival at Creek Park, Dubai, United Arab Emirates on February 10, 2005 when 1,096 having “Muhammed” as their first name assemble at one place.
This year on Saturday February 4, 2012, the organizers “Record On Hai” are planning to break above record for largest gathering of people with the same first name “Muhammad” in Karachi. This record is scheduled on the birthday of beloved Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) on 12th Raba Awal. If you have the first name Muhammad, you can be the part of this world record. This is an event for families, where everyone is invited. Please bring proof of identity like CNIC, B-Form, Passport or any other document which can prove your first name is “Muhammad”. Other people who do not have “Muhammad” in their name do not need to bring any documents and are most welcome to the event.
But considering the marketing and spreading the word about the event, it is very unlikely to gather bigger crowd. The 14 August event was on a national holiday where there is not much event lined up in the city. Whereas on 12th Raba Awal the whole city is flooded with rallies mostly organized religious bodies and political parties. Due to heavy traffic and jams, most people prefers staying at home.
