Dr. A Q Khan Who is he? – by Ali Taj

I believed that Dr. A Q Khan was the scientist who brought advanced atomic energy technology to Pakistan. Of course there were other stories that he was really a figure head and the real heroes of the atomic power of Pakistan remained hidden. When I watched this interview with Dr. A Q Khan I am convinced he could not be a physicist or scientist. He seems comfortable is violating the basic laws of thermodynamics. I must say an enormous disappointment.

Why are the most important and influential channels even bothering to cover this complete hoax? Clearly this is a testament to non serious nature of their business. They are simply trying to create sensation out of nothing. They are trying to fool the highly disturbed, energy starved populous  of Pakistan with a dog an pony show. It is sad to see Dr. A Q Khan get in to the act and create more confusion.

The only thing left is a Suo Motto action by Chief Justice of Pakistan to make it a complete circus.

  • If this is a hoax, Agha Waqar would not be parading all over the capital city with his device and challenging the TOP SCIENTISTS of Pakistan to debunk it!

    Really sad that some people are refusing to accept even the possibility of this device working because of the humble (Sindhi?) background of Engr Waqar Pathan.

  • FYI AQ Khan is the only Pakistani to be awarded the Nishan-i-Pakistan twice. So he doesn’t sound like a charlatan to me. But then, I wasn’t so offended at his endorsing a Sindhi, was I?!

  • @Ravez Junejo sb, a Sindi, Pathan, Punjabi, Sindhi, Kashmiri & Balti all are Pakistanis to an equal level and NO ONE is superior to another. Main POINT is to ACCEPT SOMETHING that’s according to SCIENCE. watch this video in which this guy also claimed to have invented something like it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfTi2WSJZdk&feature=related
    These are all publicity stunts and nothing.. Hamid Mir, had to RUN a program and showed a PUPPET show to Public of Pakistan.
    Oh watch the Last video of this Capital Talk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ympEuDvUpMI)in ENGINEERING of this engineer is exposed..
    (Hydrogen kahan sy aati hai, and his EXPLANATION is Hydrogen is h2o and comes from Water.. WHAT NON SENSE :@ )

  • Sajid bhai Agha Waqar has come to Islamabad ONLY RECENTLY and was IGNORED BY URDU MEDIA for a long time till Sindhi media anchors and common Sindhis on social media started pointing out this discrimination. It was only after such protests that Urdu mainstream media started paying attention to him.

    As I am sure you are unaware, this man had debuted his invention MONTHS AGO on Sindhi TV channels. So rest assured, Hamid Mir has NOTHING to do with this hoax, if it is one at all!

    For my part, I have said again and again that, being a Sindhi, Agha Waqar will only be insulted and ridiculed by people like Atta Ur Rahman and other latent racists. He should just go abroad. Take his invention elsewhere.

  • One last thing. Every one is ignoring the blatant difference between Agha Waqar Pathan and some obscure website selling HHO engines. Agha Waqar is SITTING ON NATIONAL TV!!!! HE’S TAKING HIS INVENTION TO THE BEST SCIENTISTS OF PAKISTAN!!!

    Why are people forcing down this man WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE OF ITS FRAUDULENCE?! Disprove Agha Waqar, then ridicule him and his endorsers as much as you want!

  • this is not a way to call fraud or nonsense to new talented engineer without seeing his innovation…. we have to courage our talent…..

  • Lets all be patient and see where this goes instead of jumping to conclusions. I think Ata ur Rehman’s advice should be taken and get this idea examined by experts.

  • The only thing left is a Suo Motto action by Chief Justice of Pakistan to make it a complete circus.

    Ha Ha Ha

    Well written Taj sb

  • “Sajid bhai Agha Waqar has come to Islamabad ONLY RECENTLY and was IGNORED BY URDU MEDIA for a long time till Sindhi media anchors and common Sindhis on social media started pointing out this discrimination. It was only after such protests that Urdu mainstream media started paying attention to him.”

    Now, even the science is not without any linguistic prejudice. We live in a country so unfortunate that every ethnic group believes they are being deprived by the other group. Complete failure to realize the basic crux of the matter. Now just visualize it for a second. A news from which the (Urdu) news channels can mint some money are just about to cover it and then stop it just because the person who invented is from Sukkur. Come on man, get out of this nonsense and rubbish and stop being under the impression of ethnic self pity.

  • Seniors should encourage juniors for whatever attempts made by the youngsters in their achievements towards betterment. In the case of Agha Waqars invention, I was surprised to see a person of the stature of Mr. Atta ur Rahman, rather than trying to understand point of view put forward by the young inventor ( no matter might have being having faults)but such senior person was reacting like a jealous child. Very unfortunate, Agha Waqar deserves to be heard, a panel of senior scientists and engineers be formed to promote further whatever achievements made by him. if we are a serious NATION ? rejecting out right without proper probing in the matter would discourage any future attempts by our young Engineers & Scientists.

  • There is always a difference between a theif steeling some diagrams and becoming an administrative head and Scientist.

  • The writer is happy pouring liters of petrol in his car. 😛
    Agha can be fake, but at least respect AQK. If you don’t respect, there are a lot of people who don’t respect you and corrupt leaders. Disregarding AQ’s contribution will not let him down. Cheers!

  • Instead of fighting and arguing amongst each others, all our scientists and concerned institutions including Engr. Agha Waqar should unitedly sit and discuss(positively)/solve this by utilizing their experiences and knowledge. I think if they work seriously (do or die), they can achieve good results. This is our utmost necessity. We can consider that Engr. Agha Waqar has started it and the rest should help to complete this. Thanks for understanding.

  • We can see many many Hoodboys and Ata Rehmans in past history too, who ridiculed great Inventors. Read Proof below: A MUST READING FOR ALL PEOPLE:
    ============================================

    Suppression of new ideas & innovation:

    It is not happening just with Agha, but in past also were many Hoodbhoys and Ata-Rehmans who opposed great inventions with full force. Please forward this message to ur colleagues if u liked it. Spread this massage throughout Pakistan in order to expose Hoodbhoys, Ata Rehmans and their pets. Thanks.

    Human history is riddled with examples of innovations and research that had been suppressed and derogated by the leading science community and the accepted scientific conventions of the time. Throughout human history, many innovators became the victims of the insults of the skeptical scientific, governmental and corporate power elites.

    German Professor George Ohm’s famous Ohm’s Law in initial publication was met with ridicule and dismissal and it was called “a tissue of naked fantasy.” In fact he was so much teased by Hoodbhoys and Ata-Rehmans of those days, that he resigned from professorship. Ten years later, scientists recognized its great importance. [Note: It is taught in Universities & is base of Electricity]

    NOW LISTEN ABOUT INVENTION OF AIRPLANE: During 1903 to 1908, Wrights Brother’s claims about their airplane invention were not believed. Most American scientists discredited the Wrights and proclaimed that their mechanism was a hoax. [Note: As is being said now by many Hoodbhoys & many Ata Rehmans about Agha Waqar].
    Another idiot Jahil Professor said “Airplanes are interesting toys, but of no military value.” – Said by Marechal Ferdinand Foch, Professor of Strategy, Ecole Superieure de Guerre. [Note: All military powers has War planes i.e our Thunder].

    When Thomas Edison became successful with a light bulb filament he invited members of the scientific community to observe his demonstration. Although many from the general public went to witness the lamp, the noted scientists refused to attend. Sir William Siemens, England’s most distinguished engineer said “Such startling announcements as these should be deprecated as being unworthy of science and mischievous to its true progress.” Professor Du Moncel said “The Sorcerer of Menlo Park appears not to be acquainted with the subtleties of the electrical sciences. Mr. Edison takes us backwards.”

    “Mr. Bell, after careful consideration of your invention, while it is a very interesting novelty, we have come to the conclusion that it has no commercial possibilities.” — J. P. Morgan’s comments on behalf of the officials and engineers of Western Union after a demonstration of the newly invented telephone.

    “This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” –Western Union internal memo, 1876. [Note: Now every house/person has telephone]

    When Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar presented his ideas at the Royal Astronomical Society in January 1935, most famous astronomer at that time, Arthur Eddington, ridiculed his ideas. It took decades before the Chandrasekhar Limit was accepted by all astrophysicists and eventually his idea became the foundation for the theory of black holes. Forty years later, Chandrasekhar was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize in physics.

    Galileo’s ideas about the universe were first dismissed as being impossible. The priests and aristocrats feared the worldview that his ideas were beginning to force upon people. Galileo was placed under house arrest.

    The inventors of the turbine ship engine, the electric ships telegraph, and the steel ship hull were initially met with disbelief and derision for their work.

    “Louis Pasteur’s theory of germs is ridiculous fiction.” – Said by Pierre Pachet, Professor of Physiology, 1872..

    Nobel Laureate Hans Krebs’ discovery of the metabolic cycle that would eventually bear his name was rejected from the journal Nature.

    Nobel prize-winning biochemist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi never got funded for his work on the relevance of quantum physics to living organisms.

    When Nobel laureate Hans Alfven came up with the idea of parallel electric fields he was ridiculed for his work. [Note: It is taught in Universities]

    When Nobel laureate Svante Arrhenius proposed his idea that electrolytes are full of charged atoms, it was considered a crazy notion. [Note: It is taught in Universities]

    Luigi Galvani’s experiments were ridiculed because they countered established views. He was called the “frogs’ dance instructor.” His innovative experiments eventually became the basis for the biological study of neurophysiology. [Note: It is taught in Universities]

    When Scanning-tunneling microscope was invented in 1982, it was met by hostility and ridicule from the specialists in the microscopy field. In 1986, the inventors won the Nobel Prize.

    Stanford Ovshinsky’s invention of glasslike semiconductors was attacked by physicists and ignored for more than a decade [10 years]. Finally he got funding from the Japanese for his work. Consequently, the new science of amorphous semiconductor physics was born. [Note: It is taught in Universities]

    When Sherwood Rowland, Mario Molina and Paul Crutzen first warned that chemicals called cholorofluorocarbons or CFCs, were destroying the ozone layer they were ridiculed for their work. In 1995, Rowland, Molina and Crutzen, won a Nobel Prize for this discovery.

    When Warren and his team introduced a new facet to MRI theory, his colleagues at Princeton University told him that his insane ideas were endangering his career. They held a mean-spirited bogus presentation mocking his work. After seven years, Warren was vindicated. His discoveries are leading to the development of new MRI techniques. [Note: Now many benefit from this great invention]

  • Appeal to all members of Pakistani Parliament and Ministers:
    ===================================

    Dear Sir,

    World’s scientists has been trying to replace fuel by Water-hydrogen from 100 yrs but are failed.

    But Agha waqar has invented this the greatest invention of history but he is being discouraged by Jahil Ph.D’s . Now fuel-mafia is using Sindh police to harass this big hero of nation. Please provide him full secure accommodation with security personals before he is murdered by Fuel-mafia.
    Thanks

    Abdul Hamid

    TRUTH IS THIS:
    ==========
    The crux of matter is that idiotic jealous brains of Hoodbhoy and Ata Rehman and many other Jahil Ph.D’s and fools are stuck on conventional electrolysis; which of course cannot run a car on 100% Water. So these fools are always showing u their calculations of Electrolysis in their comments and articles, which are totally irrelevant to this new invention. As a result, these bloody fools are shouting like mads and declaring Agha a fraud w/o any physical proof of fraud.

    True story is, that Agha is not using conventional electrolysis [that takes too much current] in this new invention. Agha is using a new technique that uses very very little current like car radio but produces hydrogen many many time more than electrolysis. Technique works in 2 steps. To give shock that strongly weakens H2O bonds. Then a tiny current is needed [like Car Radio] that continues to separate H from water EASILY. Practical demonstration has already been done in front of many many Ph.D scientist, journalists, ministers and Parliamentarians. Full mechanics of new technique will be revealed only after commercialization of New Method, Then whole world will add this new invention in their existing books of science and Technology.

    Bcsz this new technique does not exist in existing Books that are read in Engineering universities and in Ph.D classes; this is why Jealous-Jahils Hoodbhoy, Ata Rehman and their brainless barking pets have no ability to understand the mechanics of this invention. With in 3 months when this KIT will be commercialized and many cars will start to run on roads, this new technique will be fully disclosed.

    No doubt Agha is not well versed in Theory and he has invented this GREATEST INVENTION OF MANKIND HISTORY by hit-and-trial method; u can say it accidentally. But Many inventions in past were also invented not by Ph.D’s or Engineers but by simple technicians like Thomas Edison who is so far the biggest inventor with 119 inventions.

    We assure u Agha’s invention is 1000% truth, as we know exactly what his invention is.
    Note that Hoodbohy Ata-Rehman and their pets are brainless Jealous foooools.

    This invention in fact can replace trillions of tons world’s fuel by water – A big threat to fuel-mafia. This Kit can run automobiles generators powerhouses factories missiles ships submarines Army tanks and all what is being run by fuel now.

    Fuel-Mafia is now using police to harass Agha to stop his invention. Case made against him totally fake and manufactured. For the sake of Argument, even if we assume, he did robbery, how can u relate it with his GREATEST invention?

    If a notorious Dakoo can be a President of a Country then what is wrong with Agha?
