Published: January 19, 2011
Dr Hafi had earned great honour for Pakistan by developing ‘Magneto-Agricultural Development Model and Sectorial Magnetic Model’.

Dr Hafi had earned great honour for Pakistan by developing ‘Magneto-Agricultural Development Model and Sectorial Magnetic Model’.

Pakistani scientist Professor Aurangzeb Hafi has been named one of the ten Global Thematic Merit Icons of the Decade.

According to a press release by PRweb UK, His inclusion in the high profile list was due to:

Multi-disciplinary research eruditions coupled with philosophical transcendentalism along with an unswerving conviction and solidarity towards the child-disability centered issues, extensively endorsed in Tsunami catastrophic management services.

Dr Hafi had earned great honour for Pakistan by developing ‘Magneto-Agricultural Development Model and Sectorial Magnetic Model’ which would have an impact on the fields of agriculture, environmental and medical sciences, space biology, magnetobotanics, magnetohydrodynamics and multidisciplinary sciences.

Hafi along with psychologist Stephen Soldz have also been nominated as the Thematic Merit “Persons of the Decade”.

The list has been released by The Decade Merit Scrutinum, endorsed by The Sovereign Military Order Of Malta. The full list includes:

1- Psychologist Stephen Soldz
2- Prince Charles
3- Julian Assange
4- Nelson Mandela
5- Professor Emeritus Michel Chossudovsky
6- Professor Ali Shalal
7- Professor Auarangzeb Hafi
8- Lt Cmdr Charles Swift
9- Dr Guy Peter Manners(Late)
10- Dr Leonid Mikhailovich Roshal

The press release in its entirety is available on Yahoo.

UPDATE: January 26, 2011

Dr. Aurangzaib Hafi was never awarded by the the Sovereign Order of Malta. The Sovereign Order of Malta does not award the prize ‘ten Global Thematic Merit Icons of the Decade’.

The organization called Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, has no connection with the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and Malta, also known popularly as the Sovereign Order of Malta or as the Knights of Malta. This organization it is not authorized to use our name and emblems which are legally registered as service marks or trademarks in more than 100 countries. The persons associated with it, likewise, are unknown to us.

We feel obliged to advise you that there are persons or organizations, which make use of our name or variants for commercial or personal purpose unrelated to the aims and traditions of the Order Sovereign Order of Malta.

We have taken immediate action to understand who is behind this, and the perpetrators will be prosecuted.

    Not sure what kind of his achievements are we talking about. I just visited the website and went to see his Curriculum Vitae. I guess this is his official website. Looks like he is so poor in English he does not know even the difference between “ Career” and “ Carrier”. See below how he spells Career as Carrier not once but twice on that page. Look like he is desperately trying to promote himself. See it before he corrects it.

You all should not play fast and loose with any person, you don’t know. All of your arguments are platitudes and hold no water I think all of you are superficialls.

    I met Dr.Hafi first time when he came to Punjab University for an orientation. All science faculty deans and V.C. attended that orientation. He is really a man of letters. People like Dr. Aurangzeb Hafi ought to be respected. His achievements are above board. It is not the right way to inquire anybody.

    You need to understand that ENGLISH is not a standard for success. There are people in this world who have succeeded having little knowledge of English. Germans, Frensh, Dutch, none of them like speaking english. Many of these people don’t even know a word of English but they are far ahead of us. This is simply becasue they work hard and know what they are doing, wether in english, urdu, spanish farsi, unlike us who always just criticize. Please try to change and reshape your standards and not align them with good english only.

    @Faried Nawaz:
    you are 100percent correct, but just tell me one thing, that isn’t it double standard, that you yourself is giving a web key for the verification of your argument, nothing could be verified through these forums, or through any website. I have personal experience , also all science faculty deans in Punjab university, are in acquaintance with him. Come to the Punjab university, I’ll arrange a meeting session with doctor with the consent of V.C. Plz come, don’t keep yourself in darkness .i am waiting for you in Punjab university inV.C office Recommend

    Does he work for the university? I don’t think he does — searching pages within shows lots of professors who work there, but his name isn’t anywhere.. Besides, why would anyone need the VC’s consent to meet him? You’re not making any sense.

    I have a better idea: why doesn’t he publish his research? How can he possibly win awards for something that he’s kept a secret for over six years? Does that make sense to you? Can you provide any other examples of academics winning awards over unpublished research?Recommend

    You are going to verify every thing from net, and what I am saying ,I know , farid sometimes people become blind in the favor of some person ,and sometimes in opposition, once again I suggest you these websites are not reliable source for the corroboration of any matter .some People have their own style of working, and consent of V.C is must, because I am not going to assemble a private meeting, and it is university, not internet, on which you can hide yourself, and can do any thing. if you don’t have any personal grievances with him, then don’t argue without logic. After this I have nothing to satisfy you, and I also don’t feel any need for that. The only thing is that for all the members of TRIUNE. Call some PhDs anywhere from the world, arrange a conference, than judge Dr hafi. It is also a suggestion o for the management of this forum. This is the only rational way.Recommend

    Aurangzeb Hafi is a complete fraud and this whole campaign is a hoax.

    Aurangzeb Hafi first surfaced in 2003/2004 using similar technique of false advertisement on the net and in DAWN. He used the “fame” so obtained to defraud various companies in the name of helping the Tsunami victims.Recommend

    Subject: RE: Fake UNU degree?
    To: Amer Iqbal
    Cc: Mineko Minemura

    Dear Amer,

    I refer to your email message of 9 July 2005 to Rector van Ginkel
    concerning a possible fake UNU degree.

    First, I would like to indicate to you that UNU does not award any
    degrees. By way of background, the founding committee which studied
    the establishment of a United Nations University before the Charter
    was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly was of the view
    (after extensive consultations) that UNU should not award
    undergraduate or graduate degrees in competition with existing
    national and other universities. There is, of course, a more
    important question of what international body would accredit a degree
    awarded by an international organization. Accordingly, UNU has not in
    its 30 year history awarded any degrees. We do cooperate with
    universities in specific joint programmes, but the degree that is
    awarded is ultimately from the partner university. A specific case is
    a joint Ph.D. programme on socio-economic impacts of new technologies
    organized by UNU-INTECH, a UNU research and training centre, and
    Maastricht University.

    I have worked with UNU for some 23 years and I have never come across
    the name of Aurangzeb Hafi as one of our academic staff. Of course, I
    may not hear of all the names from the larger number of workshops,
    training course and conferences held in and outside of Japan. Since
    UNU’s primary activity is research although we do have specific
    capacity development programmes, I find it a little curious that Mr.
    Hafi is claiming that he taught at UNU.

    So, in response, I can clearly say that he did not receive a Ph.D.
    degree from UNU. I doubt very much that he has taught at UNU either.

    If you should need any additional information or clarification, please
    do not hesitate to contact me.

    This guy amir is completely spurious, and all his links are also,. Mr amir go into a green room ,right place for you. Sometimes I checked out his provided links, they never say anything erroneous about dr hafi. Amer always leads the people up the garden path..infact he himself is a rolling stone. Recommend
