In games he likes to play cricket and football. He was also a part of the school cricket team. He was very fond of computer games; he liked Need For Speed the most. Tahir also liked to play games on his mobile phone.

He loved to travel within the country. His favourite spot was Murree, where he would love to take chairlift rides.

His family tries to be strong but misses Tahir very much.
