Come on, let the man drive his car.

Only to be told he couldn’t drive it.

The Rawalpindi native explained that this car was his dream car and due to other financial burdens in the past, he was unable to approach the task. However finally, alongside his mechanical engineering student son, Ibadul Islam, the duo was able to build the car. The entire project cost around 600,000 rupees and a total of 9,000 hours in labour.

However, when it came time to register the car, the excise department denied his request stating that there was no law in place to register a car that was made at home. The technicality was obviously devastating to Abdul and Ibadul who both poured their time, money and energy towards this vehicle.

According to Pro Pakistani, Abdul said, “We were not sure if we would succeed in making our dream a reality, but we had faith that our hard work would bear fruit one way or another.”

The thing is while understanding that the excise department was not able to issue a registration for the car, being so that there is no official law, the fact that this man overcame his own obstacles in life to even try and reach for a dream, is applaudable. How many of us are brave enough to take on a four-year dream project that could very well end in failure? How many of us would spend all of our savings on something that may not be of value to others?

Pakistanis are some of the most enterprising people in the world. The persistence and desire to dream is not a quality found in too many people and the fact that one of our own has shown these exact qualities shouldn’t be hindered but instead, celebrated! If a man like Abdul can build his own damn car and want to drive it, who are we to stop him?

Have you seen Abdul’s story? What do you think about it? Let us know in the comments below. Love you.
