Malik Faisal Qayyum is the director of Customer Centricity Telenor Pakistan. He says that they believe it is important to raise and educate this awareness for making wise online choices. They feel that as Pakistan’s premier telecom and digital company it is their responsibility to do so too. He was also very humble in their achievement as he thanked the students from school.
The school’s initiative
The honor brought to Pakistan was also thanked by Mr Nassir Kasuri, Executive Director Beaconhouse. He also thanked Telenor and their vision which they believed was in line to theirs as well. This is because they also want to make their students to be digitally aware and safe as well. They also want their students to know about safe internet usage at their schools. This is also why the excitement and merriment went together along
On the other hand, Ms Seyda Subasi-Gemici also congratulated everyone for the achievement. She was there for the attempt record on behalf of the Guinness.
