A Pakistani scientist Dr Aurangzeb Hafi has earned a great honour for the country by developing ‘Magneto-Agricultural Development Model and Sectorial Magnetic Model’ for the first time in the world that will vivid far-looking and long lasting effects on agriculture, environmental and medical sciences, space biology, magnetobotanics, magnetohydrodynamics and multidisciplinary sciences.
Prof. Dr. Aurangzeb Hafi is the first South Asian, whose name has been inscribed in the Roll of Honor in The Sovereign Royal Order of The Knights of Peace and Justice, and has been honored and knighted in the category of ‘de jure’. His contribution in Tsunami relief work….Read.
In 2004 Dr Aurangzeb hafi was contesting or the prestigious international title “Man of the Year 2003 in Interdisciplinary Sciences” has rejected the “unofficial” offer that he accept British citizenship to be a winner. He also turned down the offer of two million pounds sterling (or Rs210 million) for providing the original manuscript of his magnetosectorial model, on the basis of which he has joined the race, saying the invention was a trust of his country which he would not like to barter for personal gains.

Dr Aurangzeb Hafi is one of the six scientists shortlisted out of 1,376 from 900 universities in 60 countries by the International Scientific Council, headquartered in Britain. The shortlisted contestants in addition to Prof Dr Hafi are; Prof Dr J.A. Walker, Dr I.J. Richards (UK), Prof Dr Okada (Japan), Dr J.F. Larson (Denmark) and Dr S. Nevelli (India).
And he went on to win the contest. Principal Assessor Dr Walter Bodmer said in a statement. “Scientific Honours Scrutiny Committee has reached the conclusion that after a careful assessment and review with the best possible competency and intellectual honesty it was found that, out of the major unusual works in interdisciplinary sciences, Aurangzeb Hafi’s Magnetic Sectoral Model was found to be of the widest multidisciplinary research and development implementation capacity and having multifaceted impact on interdisciplinary scientific research”.

It is a supreme pleasure, a singular honour and a rare privilege for me to write some words about Prof. Dr. Sir. Aurangzeb Hafi Naqashbandi. Prof. Hafi has an exceptional personality with extremely unusual combinations, as many of his teachers, students, patients and friends can testify. Totally dedicated to promote his chosen subjects (i.e. Humanitarianism, Research Methodology, Bromagnetics, Magnetohydrodynamics and Alternative Medicines), Dr. Hafi has led his name to the heights of achievements and won “International Accolade” for the scholars of Pakistan.
Pakistan is proud to have such an eminent scholar and thinker who has contributed enormously to Pakistan through his work which is recognized worldwide. His monumental achievements are unparalleled.
As Loa-Tzu said:
A leader among men holds fast three precious things:
i) Gentleness but Bold
ii) Frugality yet Liberal
iii) Humility as Selfless
These are what made Sir Aurangzeb Hafi special as high profile academician in Research Methodology.Dr. Hafi has always been directed towards the pursuit of excellence, but he has worked, usually, not in air-conditioned and well-equipped labs.
His meticulously composed contributions in the field of sciences, his polished and refined reflections on Research Methodology and his sartorial elegance are indelible impressions I carry of a most distinguished man of aour times.
Sir Hafi has an observant eye with analytical mind, indomitable will with unwavering belief and uncontrollable courage with a hope, which he has dexterously used to immaculately attire and his zealous pursuit of excellence in research is unequaled.
Beyond many qualities A.Z. Hafi Naqashbandi is a fighter for justice, honesty and morality. He is a real friend for poor and neglected people. It was his noble mind that brought him on the international top of Research.
Prof. Hafi is neither just a research methodologist, nor a scientist, but a MAN, for recapitulating Rudyard Kipling, he can talk with crowds and keep his virtue or walk with Kings not losing the common touch.
I could not, but be impressed by his excellent ethical standards and diverse commitments.
I hope that as a gifted motivator and superb organizer, he would play a leading role in fostering and strengthening ties and collaborations among scientific and sociomoral scholar nationally and internationally. I believe that he would hold back the tidal waves of dishonesty with the dukes of truth, motality and courage. He is the brilliant scientist at the forefront of Scientific Research & Humanitarianism.
I do hope that more and more people would join him to work for the betterment of mankind.
(H.M Khurshid———-Ph.D., Ex. Senior Research Methodologist: The United Nations University)
He is known to most people as Sir Aurangzeb Hafi Naqashbandi, the great Scientist and Research Methodologist. But few have known him as an individual as a human being. Very few indeed are aware that he is also a highly spiritual being, immersed deeply in Humanitarianism. In keeping with this spiritual side of Sir Auraugzeb Hafi, this man of Science has also a highly sensitive and compassionable heart, whose care of and concern for poor and neglected people are worthy for emulation it is not difficult to see why he is held in such high esteem. He is model to emulate.
