where he was quickly noticed for his “phenomenal self-confidence”, says director Ammer Sohail. Shortly afterwards, he left his school to be full-time at USECS, continuing his English studies and embarking on his motivational career. The university, made up largely of working-class students, now has Safi offer motivational lectures each week, in addition to his growing internet fan base. His “job”, says Sohail, is to encourage the poorer students, “to give them hope, so that they break their glass ceiling” in a country with glaring education inequality, and where more than 40 per cent of the population is illiterate, according to UN data. “We want it to spread this education awareness to the whole country,” he says emphatically. Safi’s father, a wealthy 48-year-old businessman from Peshawar named Abdul Rehman Khan, agrees. “He is not on ordinary child,” he explains. “People have seen something in him. I have myself seen abilities in him. That’s why I have appointed special teachers for him. I want him to become a special leader. “I’m very proud… For his abilities, for his intelligence, he is God-gifted.” Safi repeats the sentiment, though sometimes he gives the impression of doing so by rote. “I am an inspiration, not only for Pakistan, but for the world. I inspire the entire universe,” he tells AFP, without blinking.
Start of the Journey:
Hammad was first invited to The University of Peshawar where he delivered a very mind blowing and thought provoking lecture of almost 1 hour in which he discussed about facing challenges and the importance of challenges in life. The lecture was given a media coverage that was watched by more than 1 million people on social media. It gave Hammad wings to fly. A series of lectures then started and he went from north to the south of Pakistan attending seminars, special lectures, and motivational sessions. His experience may be encapsulated in the following list
He sometimes studies “10 to 12 hours in a row”, according to his professors. In his simple room, photos showing him in the company of the Chinese ambassador in Islamabad and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan hang over his bed. Posters of cartoon heroes or sportsmen are absent, toys are few. “Batman and Superman are fake heroes, but those are true,” he says, pointing to the portraits of Allama Iqbal, Bill Gates and Albert Einstein adorning his walls. “Where’s the child in him? He’s gone, because he thinks above his age,” worries Bakht Zaman, a professor at Peshawar University, who attended a lecture later shared widely on YouTube. “This talented child is a good motivational coach” but “he lacks intellectual depth,” he notes. “He can become what they want to do with him, but it will take time.” Hassan Amir Shah, the vice chancellor of a public university in Lahore, where Safi has also lectured, hopes for his part that all the attention “will not drive him crazy”. “He still has a long way to go, many books to read,” he tells AFP. “We will only be able to judge him in 20 years, when he is an adult.”
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”
