We may never see Waqar Zaka on TV again

It depends on whether his plan to save Pakistan works

Waqar Zaka wears many hats — social worker, TV show host, social media star, engineering graduate and, if he succeeds in his latest venture, the brain behind Pakistan’s first cryptocurrency. 

Zaka is launching an ambitious movement called ‘Tehreek-i-Tech’ to pay Pakistan’s debts. “Since I am an engineering graduate from NED University, I have come to realize that technology is the only way to pay back the debts of Pakistan,” he said while on SAMAA TV’s morning show Naya Din.

The movement has three aims, the first being to launch Pakistan’s first cryptocurrency.

“If Prime Minister Imran Khan launches Pakistan’s own cryptocurrency, our country will be able to get foreign investment from around the world to pay our debts,” he said.

He added that for the movement, he has a team from NED, NUST and other universities who will launch the cryptocurrency free-of-cost with zero investment.

The second aim of Zaka’s Tehreek-i-Tech movement is a little more ambiguous — he wants to revolutionise madrassas in Pakistan.

“The schools’ mafia in Pakistan only teaches the conventional ways of earning to the youth. My agenda is to target the madrassas and revolutionize them with science and technological education,” he said.

Zaka said he will appeal to religious clerics to “pass a fatwa” making science and technology education compulsory at all madrassas. “To bring foreign exchange into the country we need to excel in IT and technological education should be made as important as zakat,” he said. “To educate the students we will have Skype sessions with madrassa students.”

The third aim of the movement is to fix Pakistan Space Programme.

Zaka said his source of inspiration was his trips to Syria and Burma. “As a reporter and a journalist my job is not only to record the issue but also to help people leave there. From this I got the inspiration to help my own country.”

He bets his movement can collect $4 billion in six months. “If it fails to do so I will never come on any television screens again.”

    Good suggestions but crypto currency is not the only way to overcome our financial debs many countries tried to do so but fail it might take many years to introduce crypto currency in our community

    Zaka is a foolish and stupid person. He barks nonsense. If he sticks to his words, he will be unable to appear on TV.

    Please read this.
    1. Waqar zaqa may not be capable of this feat but atleast he is putting everything on the line to help his country. I personally do not like his arrogance but that has nothing to do with his resolve to achieve this which is respectable.
    2. Science is the solution to solve Pakistan’s problem. We need innovators and creative minds to be placed strategically. We cannot approach issues with an arm chair lazy response. Look at rise of israel india or singapore south korea japan germany. All of them ran with scientific progress. Usa now leads that pack.
    4. Manufacturing is your backbone. Not textile and basic industtries.

    His idea is superb, what u people do is just uttering nothing else what u taught basically u become slave of this corporate system, tell me where research work goes in our society, we know how to use Skype,whats app, Facebook Twitter but we don’t know how they invented what creative convention was required into this development. Zaka I really appreciate you and your objective to take out Pakistan from circular debts

  15. Muhammad Afzal  April 14, 2019 10:28 am/ Reply

    Honest try he needs our support and we should support him in noble cause

    The title ” we may never see him again on television” makes it sound like YOU don’t wish this country to succeed. whereas regardless of the person who is giving talking of the noble cause you should give out positive vibes with titles like this.
