‘Water car’: Engineer sues doctor for ‘trying to undermine’ his invention

Published: August 2, 2012

" I challenge Dr Atta to physically examine the car as water is its sole source of fuel," says Agha Waqar.

ISLAMABAD: 

A self-proclaimed inventor of a water kit capable of powering a car is suing a former science and technology minister for undermining his work. 

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Agha Waqar said that Dr Attaur Rehman is baselessly trying to undermine his research, which is why he sent the legal notice. Dr Rehman had rejected the viability of the water kit based on the scientific law of conservation.

Waqar said Dr Rehman has rejected the experiment without personally examining it. “I challenge Dr Atta to physically examine the car as water is its sole source of fuel,” Waqar said. He added that the water kit is a small device attached in the car that separates hydrogen from water and supplies it to the engine.

He claimed that a 1,000CC vehicle will get 40 kilometres per litre of water while a one-KV generator could produce electricity for two hours on a litre of water.

The engineer said the water fuelling system was a “simple technology” in which hydrogen bonding with distilled water produces hydrogen gas to run a car engine.

Pakistan Science Foundation Chairman Dr Manzoor Hussain Soomro, accompanying Waqar, said, “This is an extraordinary breakthrough and we should examine it carefully as the system may have national and international importance.”

However, he said that thorough testing is needed to validate the invention. Many important inventions through time have been made by non-scientists and the team’s work should not be arbitrarily ruled out, he added.

Earlier, a cabinet sub-committee praised the invention and assured the engineer of full support, with the invention due to be presented for approval in the next cabinet meeting.

    In Scientific World everyone have to be proved his by some technical specifications and also it needs a patent most of the time and scientific Papers with Mathematical and Simulation analysis. I am an Engineer myself and i know how everything is governed in Engineering field. If Atttaur Rehman is objecting then he have a right to do so. He is a PHD and i know how one PHD really becomes and he knows how things work. Also so far the inventor of Car Kit have not been able to provide us with any Mathematical and Simulation data that could corroborate his claim. Infact the international community can actually sue the Inventor of Car Kit because he claimed that Law of Thermodynamics and Conservation of Energy does not hold and that is a shock actually to any scientist who know they laws actually.

    Dr Rahman need not see the car. This so-called engineer just cannot flip the universal law of conservation of energy on its head through his sheer ignorance.

    Dr Rahman need not see the car to call it a fraud just like I don’t need to see your notepad when you tell me you’ve got proof that 2+2=5

    The car may move, the car may even run purely off hydrogen as a result of electrolysis but sooner or later the battery (which in fact is providing the energy to run the car, hydrogen is just the medium the car can consume) will die as no matter how much you try, you just cannot achieve 100%+ efficiency in this universe at least.

    This is a fraud no matter how you pull the strings.

    “Earlier, a cabinet sub-committee praised the invention and assured the engineer of full support, with the invention due to be presented for approval in the next cabinet meeting.”

    Are our cabinet members not just completely uneducated in basic science, but utterly incapable of utilizing advisors?

    As to the “invention” itself: as long as the electricity used for electrolysing the water is not free, it is a completely useless way of powering a car. The efficiency losses in doing electricity -> electrolysis -> burning hydrogen -> converting that heat into motion using the internal combustion engine mean that it is much better to just power electric motors off the electricity.

    As for this “engineer”, for his extreme arrogance in raising a legal case against a real scientist in spite of his lack of grasp of the most BASIC of engineering and scientific principles means he should be given a strong slap on the wrist.

    agha waqar is not claiming to deny the 1st law of T.D.

    he claims that the device uses a specific ratio of the two gases produced. obviously one being used less is the raw material produced in addition to water.
    and internal combustion engine uses O2 from air being an additional input.
    SUBJECT OF INVESTIGATION IS THAT WHETHER THE SYSTEM PRODUCES H2 AND O2 OR SOME PLASMA
    and obviously judging from lack of know how of basic principles of science on part of eng. agha waqar, he has no way way of knowing what he has produced

    there is no law that states that hydrolysis of distilled water(not with added electrolyte) using electrical resonance(that causes very high efficiency of energy utilization) will always produce O2 in addition to H2.

One thing which is really funny is that he is using distilled water as , according to him, other kind of water has minerals and chemicals. If the so called engineer has some basic knowledge of Physics , he would have used water with some chemical or mineral i.e. electrolyte . He is trying to defy laws of science , remember these are not theories that can be negated. I wont be surprised if someday he will say that gravity doesnt exist.

All the engineers why don’t you guys try to help him get him patent his device and than it is openly available for you guys to examine. In my opinion let’s be neutral because non of us wrote the laws of Physics and if some one is saying they have found the loop hole in it than hey that’s a good thing because if it is true we won’t be last to beg to get it this time.

    Water breaks into hydrogen and oxygen at the expanse of energy which is this particular case is coming through car battery. In the next step, the hydrogen burns with oxygen to give energy and converts back in water. Even in the ideal case, the energy obtained from this hydrogen burning is only 82% of the energy used to break water in the first step.
    So this car is running on battery. After hearing all big ppl on this issue (except Dr. Atta ur rehman), all I can say is : RIP Science in Pakistan.

STOP SAYING THIS U…. it’s science not Holy Quran that God Has Promised will never change, So stop your baseless arguement… KILL YOURSELF AFTER READING THIS, COZ MICHEAL WAS NEVER GOOD AT MATHS TOO!

    The law of thermodynamics is for ordinary people with common sense. Law of cheating created by Agha Waqar and supported by scientists like Dr Manzoor Hussain Soomro and A.Q Khan is for all others. Foreign companies are ready to purchase his invention for hundred billions dollars if he agrees.

    Every man (or woman) would serve as a portable fuel source. A disposable catheter would be integral part of tool kit in all future cars.
    In fact pets and live stock would be a handy source of fuel too!!

    First of All Agha waqar not present the hypotheses that other can reject him according to existing principle of Physic. He Demonstrating the experiment. Know wither he is making any fraud or not we only check this by practically not theoretically or any law of to day physics . Because many theory and even law of physics was change or rejected according to the new invention by chance or with new knowledge of science . Newton law of light was rejected by incoming scientist like Elbert .

    So as Atta Rehman said that it may be fraud means it is possible that Agha waqar hid any source of fuel which connected with fuel tank of car it is possible so we first check it then we can say any think . In short science is the name of possibility. It is possible that Agha waqar create the technique of absolute energy or some think like that but it will be sure when PHD holder scientist first check that is it not a fraud . Ant it will be when scientist will go on ground to check the car . Not saying that it is fraud without checking it.

    So think before you decide that who is right and who is wrong and say Pakistan zindabad

    The invention is too impotent not to be calling for a revisit. In good old days of kingship, the king would have tested by fitting the “water kit” into the inventor, through a knob in an appropriate socket, and seen whether the inventor can run. Sad in modern age we do not have such opening.

    It is actually doable and people have done it before so it’s not some new invention but the energy cartels won’t let it see the light of day because then they cannot charge you and tax you. If there’s no money to be made in it they suppress that technology. This guy better watch his back.

    I was actually called by one of my friend who wanted to get clarification about this “super invention” as I am an energy scientist/engineer working in a university to develop hydrogen fuel cells for cars. Despite the fact I told him that we spent billions of dollars on developing new technologies how on earth this guy can claim in making such a claim he insisted on to investigate the matter. Dr. Attaurahman did a good job in refuting his claims on geo however, he didn’t use any visual aid to make it easier for people to understand the conservation of energy laws. Scientist and engineers working at govt. agencies are always scared in Pak. to refute the claims of people like these who demonstrate these things to a few politicians (as they take it personally) and than tries to undermine them. In Pakistan these days people are desperate for energy, fuels and good news and the media acts very unresponsibly and unprofessionaly to provide such non confirmed things to people. We have a hydrogen pumping station at our university which only one of two currently available in the UK and for that we buy very expensive hydrogen from BOC gases, if this guy is that good, I can arrange for him to get paid at least a million dollars in a few months.

    My dear lakeer kay Sceintists and engineers read story about Bumble bees…..

    I have always liked bumble bees not sure why though. was it the name that sounded a pinch cute or was it for the cartoons that showed adorable yellow and black stripped buzzing buddies.
    But do you know that scientist say “Bumble bees cant fly or are not suitable for flight” ? Wikipedia reads as follows “the laws of aerodynamics prove that the bumblebee should be incapable of flight, as it does not have the capacity (in terms of wing size or beats per second) to achieve flight with the degree of wing loading necessary.” I am no aviation engineer or aeronautic fanatic but it simply says YOU CANT FLY !

    Then how do they achieve this feat ? It is simply cause they dont BUY it or perhaps they needed to prove someone wrong.

    Draw inspiration from these. . People might say that you dont have what it takes to be him/her but you certainly got the right things to prove him or her wrong. Dont buy opinions that people give. live life the way God has planned it out for you.

    Science says Bumble bees can’t fly but Bumble bee says Science is not that which rules me or set constraints for me !!
    FACT : Aerodynamically calculating , the bumble bee cant fly,
    TRUTH: the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.

    Mr. Ata Rehman:

    Your objection on this invention and your slandering campaign against this invention is ONLY AND ONLY based on your stubbornness, ignorance and jealousy. I can prove it as follow that what you have said is nothing but a piece of crap that can only be expected from a mentally retarded beast who is burning in Jealousy:

    1- You said that Agha is running car w/o external source. This is ur lie. Water has Hydrogen gas and Petrol has same gas too. In petrol car, battery runs fuel pump and in Agha’s car the current that is used for fuel pump is used to crack water into gases. So ur slander that it is perpetual machine is false and absurd. His new method is new invention and ABSOLUTELY NOT ELECTROLYSIS. U cannot activate electrolysis in distilled water.

    2- You said Agha has no Engineering Degree so he cannot be inventor. This your argument is EXTREMELY shameful because It is absolutely not necessary to have Ph.D or B.E Engg in order to invent. Your this extremely shameful argument can be fully debunked because the biggest inventor of history Thomas Edison was neither a Ph.D nor have B.E Engg. This is fact that most of great inventors were not well versed in theory of sciences. They were just Technicians/Technologists like Agha.

    3- In your TV Shows and in ur articles you have frequently declared Agha a Fraud even with out finding any physical fraud in his car that he has demonstrated already in front of many people. It is your total moral bankruptcy that you are mongering slanders of fraud even w/o Proof against that humble inventor. As per Islamic law, You deserve 80 stripes on your back or u bring physical Proof of fraud.

    4- At the end of your article, you have said that GOV should give exemplary punishment to Agha. This is again your extremely preposterous claim as you are suggesting punishment against the greatest inventor of mankind history against whom you have no any proof of fraud. In fact Gov must give that exemplary punishment to you because it is you and not Agha who is misleading people and it is you who has proved himself a big slander monger.

    5- Truth is this, that Agha is not well versed in theory but yet have brought mother of all inventions. You and your old books have no ability yet to understand this invention. This is ABSOLUTELY NOT ELECTROLYSIS but a new technique. A liter water has energy equal to millions of KW too if u understand what I mean-fusion. You claim that you are Ph.D; yet you do not understand, that in distilled water, electrolysis cannot be activated. Your Ph.D must be investigated if it is not bogus. Because Agha is not well versed in theory, this is why he wrongly introduced his method as electrolysis. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ELECTROLYSIS because battery cannot run car through electrolysis.

    6- The biggest proof of TRUTH is practical demonstration of invention in front of people which is eye witness through observation. That what Agha has already done. If you are unable to understand that invention, that does not mean it is fraud but its mean, you have yet no ability to understand that invention & so you must educate yourself and updated your old man-made laws and theories as per new invention. Are you Allah? No. Only Allah has complete knowledge. A Ph.D know many things YET DO NOT KNOW EVERY THING. In Agha’s system, his invention provides trigger for reaction, then that reaction is almost self-Sustaining. To change it from “Almost Self-Sustaining” to “SUSTAINING”, It need periodical push from car battery. But that push is in milliamps and so small that it is less than the current that car radio uses. Ata Rehman. I will not yet disclose secrets of this invention though I know it fully. I just give u hint and if your brain is still young, that will pick it. In his method Agha’s team provides trigger to start reaction & after, that reaction can be sustained with very very little current from battery. Consider example of Kerosene lamp. You start/lit it once by a little fire; then that works itself. only you have to add kerosene periodically to continue it. Instead of kerosene of this example in Agha’s Kit is needed very little current in milli-amps and more distilled water periodically so that it continues.

    7- You also claimed that what Agha has done is already been done by many in past. Here you have told again 100% lie. In past people has blended gas with petrol to reduce cost of Petrol but no one ever succeeded to replace petrol 100% by water. Agha is the first person who has done so and his invention is clear a TRUTH as is Sun on sky. and u will see it.

    8- To sum up: Any wise person can understand at the spot that it is despicable crime to declare Agha Waqar a fraud with out finding physically any fraud in car that he has already demonstrated in front of top journalists politicians and many Ph.D’s. Some theoretical Ph.D’s has launched hate campaign against the greatest inventor of mankind history Agha Waqar. All objections of these some IRRESPONSIBLE Ph.D’s do not carry any weight and sense. They WRONGLY claim, this invention violates laws of science; in fact it does not. The reason of their totally absurd claims is their jealousy against inventor & their inability to understand that new invention. Sometime they say, Agha is not engineer, so he cannot invent. But Edison the biggest inventor of history was too neither Ph.D nor even B.Engg. Ata Rehman & Hoodbhoy are driving in wrong direction on one way road. Their all hue & cry is, that car cannot be run on electrolysis with battery but they do not know that method of Agha is ABSOLUTELY not conventional Electrolysis. When they will know his method, they will not sleep for many nightsRecommend

Their universe of science has been stuck & confined to a blackbox called electrolysis. Just like a rusty deformed needle of a retired old wall clock is stuck at one place due to its weak battery. So these some useless jealous Ph.D’s have lost their faculty to think OUT OF BOX. They will not understand mechanics of this greatest invention unless they start to think out of box.
