Sibtain is a student at LUMS. But he is not an ordinary student. He has a day named after him at his university. So what’s the story and how did students at LUMS come to be celebrating ‘Sibtain Day’ on December 2nd?

This is how it happened:

 

On a Facebook Group for LUMS students Sibtain’s friends started tagging and putting his picture to any random posts

His name has become a pop culture phenomenon and he needs security

 

Urban Dictionary can’t even find a proper “word” of the year because of Sibtain.

 

 

So December 2nd has been named at LUMS as ‘Sibtain Day’

And everyone celebrates it by wearing his signature clothes. Black shalwar kameez and shawl.

 

This is what Sibtain has to say about the matter

In our conversation with him, Sibtain says he credits (read: blames) all his friends for his viral fame. And he is equally thankful to the LUMS community at large for picking up on the joke and making him a star that he is now. He wants his fans to know he is truly enjoying every moment of his fame but he becomes rather awkward when everywhere he goes around on campus and he is followed with laughing people.
