  1. 1. PAKISTAN <br />INGUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS<br /> By:<br />Faizan Muhammad LGS  EME  LAHORE<br />                      <br />History and Introduction<br />For more half-a-century Guinness World Records has documented the longest and shortest, the lowest and highest, the heaviest and lightest, the fastest and slowest, the coldest and hottest, the commonest and the rarest, as well as a host of other fascinating extremes, discoveries and achievements, in, on, and beyond our planet Earth.<br />The origins of this famous book date back to 1951 in a shooting party in Eire. Guinness Brewing managing director, Sir Hugh Beaver became involved in a dispute as to whether the golden plover was Europe’s swiftest game bird. The definitive answer could not be found in any reference book. In 1954 there was a similar argument. Sir Hugh felt a book should be published containing answers to questions most likely to be asked. Twins Norris and Ross McWhirter were asked to compile facts and figures and the first Guinness Book of Records, as the work of reference was then known, was published on 27 August 1955. The 288-page book was an overnight success and become Britain’s best seller before Christmas that year.<br />Such is the popularity of this annual work of reference, and so great the international interest in record-breaking, that London-based Guinness World Records receives tens of thousands of letters every year from people who want to be included in the next edition or keen to make suggestions for new categories. The interesting and the weird all come together in the ‘Guinness World Records’, which is the brainchild of a brewary chief executive. Now in its 55th year of publication. This book has no parallel.<br />One of a kind, Guinness World Records is used by people all over the world and from all walks of life to inform, educate and entertain and, of course, to settle arguments. There are more than 40,000 individual records within Guinness World Records’     computerized database, only about 10 percent of which are published in the book itself.<br />Pakistan is not only a state with God-Gifted factors (like seasons, rivers etc) but there are many other factors for what each and every Pakistani feels proud to be a Pakistani. Here is a List of World Records set by Pakistanis.<br />Medical Records<br />Largest collection of dummies:<br />Since 1995, Dr. Muhammad Mustansar of the Children's Hospital and Institute of Child Health in Lahore, Pakistan has been collecting dummies as an educational movement against them.

During the surgery 30 stones have been removed from the gallbladder of the old women “Chanan Jan”. Dr Taj thanked Allah Almighty on this achievement and in his interview he mentioned that it is all possible due to the professional assistance of Anesthetists Dr Arshad Ali, Dr Tauqeer, Dr Saba Yousaf, Dr Nadia, Dr Naheeda, and Dr Fazal.<br /> <br />Largest Appendix Removed:<br />An appendix removed from a 55-year-old Pakistani man on June 11, 2003, at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences, Islamabad, Pakistan, measured 23.5 cm (9.2 in) in length. The operation was carried out by Dr. Riaz Ahmed Khokhar. The appendix is a long, thin, worm-like pouch sticking out of the join between the large and small intestines. Doctors are still not sure of its purpose – or even if it has a purpose – and although it contains immune-system cells, if it's surgically removed, health doesn't suffer.<br /> <br />Largest Volunteer Ambulance Organization:<br />Abdul Sattar Edhi (Pakistan) began his ambulance service in 1948, ferrying injured people to hospital.

With his talent spilling over, it was no surprise that he also achieved a top score in the US admissions test and was accepted by most Ivy League institutions, including Harvard and Yale. Apart from core science subjects, Ali is almost entirely self-taught with his extraordinary memory and amazing analytical powers. <br />Youngest Civil Judge:<br />Muhammad Ilyas passed the examination enabling him to become a Civil Judge in July 1952 at the age of 20 years 9 months, although formalities such as medicals meant that it was not until eight months later that he started work as a Civil Judge in Lahore, Pakistan. <br />Smallest Quran (in size):<br />The smallest published Quran book measures 1.7 cm x 1.28 cm x 0.72 cm (0.66 in x 0.50 in x 0.28 in).
