This is Sibtain Haider.
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
Initially people were confused
And questioned who this guy was
But Sibtain is all powerful
And he is everywhere
Political parties want him
Some even wondered if he is a Yahoodi Sazish
Soon the trend caught on and everyone was doing it
People are dying to be best friends with him
People are making pilrgimage from all over the LUMS campus to find him and take pictures with him
He became an international sensation soon enough
Chuck Norris is nothing compared to the fame that this guy has
And Bollywood didn’t want to be left behind either
The LUMS Administration also got in on this
Who knew that Vice Chancellor of LUMS was also apparently inspired by Sibtain!

When there is a new hero on the scene the likes of Meera Jee and Qandeel Baloch can never be far behind
So this happened
The sports world caught the Sibtain bug as well
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.
Sibtain has a special message for his friends in particular
“Zameen mili banjar, dost milay KANJAR #SibtainHaider”
