VR KarbalaAbout us

In 2014, on a bus ride, the founder of VR Karbala, Nazer Hussain Mehrali, was reading an article about VR technology. This particular article, which was the source of inspiration, was about the Forbidden City of China. In this article, the Chinese had revived the Forbidden City, and hence, they were aiming to enable the tourists to experience this magnificent city in its glorious past. Through this article, the first seed of VR Karbala was planted and soon various questions appeared, and particularly, the following questions aroused.

How can this technology be used in the Islamic communities and particularly in the Shia community?
How can the Islamic communities be improved through the VR technology?

In this particular moment, an emotional thought appeared, namely, the combination of VR technology and the tragedy of Karbala. Thus, in 2015, it was decided to combine this idea in a bachelor thesis, where the hypothesis was to revive the tragedy of Karbala through VR, and combined with the Entrepreneurship and Innovation. This thesis laid the conceptual foundation of VR Karbala. Since May 2016, the project of VR Karbala is officially initiated, and currently, the project is still in the developing phase.

Surely, the paradise and salvation are saved for those, who brings forward the tears of others for Imam Hussain (as), even if it is as small as a wing of a mosquito.
