There was an article by NADEEM PARASCHA in the same newspaper DAWN ridiculing the whole thing.

Agreed....right from their "religion" they believe in hideous lies and live by them too!

A Russian, a Cuban, an Englishman and a Pakistani are on a train.

The Russian takes out a bottle of his best vodka, drinks a bit and throws the rest off the train and says, "There's plenty more of that where I come from."

Everyone is impressed. The Cuban takes out one of the finest Havana cigars, takes one puff and throws it off the train and says, "There's plenty more of those where I come from."

Again everyone is rather impressed. So the Englishman stands up and throws the Pakistani off the train.

If you were less concerned with insulting Pakistan and read the article you would see this is a con, and not a new one. No wonder the media picked it up they are suckers for drama.

For ever idiot here. Why do you keep bugging without having to actually check yourself. Go ask your chemistry and physic teachers if it is possible or not not? If you have concept of engines then you can understand it otherwise don't put shit over here.

Water contains hyderogen, which can be used as combustion like petrol/cng. If you find a uniquie way to extract hyderogen from water and fit it somewhere in engine then it will surely work like charm.

It requires ENERGY to split water into oxygen and hydrogen.

And once it is split,and hydrogen is burnt,the energy output should be enough to do 2 things: regenerate hydrogen from water and drive the car at the same time.

It is an impossibility...and I was schooled in India and learnt it around 12 years..and here is what the world thinks of Indian education..

From Ponzi schemes to UFO's to weeping Madonnas plenty of scams the world over.

There was a guy in India who claimed that gasoline can be extracted from a certain plant...and when scientists disproved him,a certain "rationalist atheist" politician gave him credence..ah well shit happens always!

Water Car - What is Truth? By Abdullah Warsi P.E --- Part 1/2:
A Bold truth is, that a few theoretical Scientists and Ph.Ds are Jahil Ignorant who attach this invention with the "Law of Conservation of Energy" These Ph.D's are like that donkey of Noble Quran that is loaded with Books[Quran 62:5}. Aghas Water-Kit is the greatest invention of mankind history & that invention has no any relation with the law of conservation of energy & Law of thermodynamics. Soon a time will come when these a few Jahil theoretical Ph.Ds who are insulting Agha Waqar in "TV SHOWS", will be hiding their faces from public. Please note that the biggest "Practical Ph.D scientist" of Pakistan A.Q Khan has supported this invention. A Ph.D has good knowledge but he cannot claim that he knows all and his knowledge is complete. COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE IS ONLY with Allah Jalla Aala Aleem-ul-Khabir. If I have not visited Lahore that does not mean that I should claim that Lahore does not exist. Existing our some theoretical Ph.Ds has no ability to understand that greatest Invention of Agha Waqar. But instead of admitting that they do not have ability to understand that new invention; they are yelling on this humble gentleman Agha by declaring him fraud. This is extremely irresponsible attitude. Unless fraud is caught physically in that car; no one has right to announce in TV shows that it is fraud. Ph.Ds know of course many things; YET THEY DO NOT KNOW EVERY THING. Only Allah Aleem-ul-Khabir Knows everything. When Prophet Moses claimed that he was the most learned man of that time; Allah sent him Wahi & said O Moses: This is not correct, I have people on this earth who have even more knowledge than you. He was then advised to travel with Khizer (detail is in Sura Kahaf in Glorious Quran)
If Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, & King of Inventors Thomas Edison were alive today, they would had travelled to the house of Agha Waqar in Khairpur Sindh Pakistan to salute Agha Waqar. If "Alfred Nobel" of Sweden could come out of his grave today, he could has suggested "Noble Prize Committee" that please change name of "Nobel Prize" to "Agha Waqar Prize". Reader should note that king of inventors EDISON who also invented electrical lamp was so poor that he used to sell Newspapers and used to cultivate vegetables in his house, so to sell them in order to pay expenses of his education. A jealous group who is against the invention of Agha Waqar says, how a diploma holder can invent. First of all Agha has Bachelor in Technology B.Tech, Moreover, reader should note that the biggest inventor of history Thomas Edison was a simple technician. He was not B.Engg or Ph.D.
