4 months ago
Zong is celebrating Pakistan’s 70th Independence day in a unique yet amazing manner by arranging virtual tour of Quaid-e-Azam’s birthplace for the entire nation.
Marked as Independence day present from Zong to the nation, anyone can simply hover to this link and take a virtual tour of Wazir Mansion, Quaid’s birthplace.
Created under Zong’s Corporate Social Responsibility, entire project was completed in-house by Zong 4G’s ‘New Hope’ volunteers, who paid homage to the greatest hero of our Independence, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, by digitizing his home-place.
Anyone can embark 3D virtual tour to experience a life-like exploration of Wazir Mansion, its rooms, hallways, study room, Quaid’s bedroom, guest library and library, which is furnished with original furniture that has been preserved in its original form.
The second floor displays astounding artifacts such as Quaid’s clothing, wearables and accessories that were under his use and gives us a peek into Quaid’s elegant lifestyle.

It maybe recalled that Wazir Mansion, known officially as “Quaid-e-Azam Birthplace Museum” is a former family home in the Kharadar district of Karachi, Sindh.
The magnificent structure was built during 1860-1870 with stone masonry in lime and jute mortar to suit the volatile weather of Karachi.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammed Ali Jinnah’s father got the house for rent in 1874 and settled here.
It’s mentionable here that Zong 4G is a wholly owned subsidiary of China Mobile Communications Corporation and in recent years has heavily invested in its Corporate Social Responsibility program in Helathcare, Education, Law and Order and Civic Services.
This includes recent setup of 4G lab for street children, 4G research facility for LUMS, Telemedicine centers across Pakistan and many others. This intiative is part of Zong’s larger CSR program of 2017 and we hope that it will go a long way in reviving the patriotic spirit in Pakistani youth.
