Meet Sahibzada Muhammad Jawad of Peshawar, the first Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ph.D. expert, to do research on scorpions. Sahibzada Muhammad Jawad of Peshawar is the first Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ph.D. expert to do research on scorpions.
According to Jawad, no one in the KP has ever worked on the matter before him, and there is no laboratory to be screened in the province. He told the Independent Urdu news that it was too late for him to start tracking down parts of the province, now he has three families of scorpions.
“There are 20 families of scorpions in the world, with 2,500 members. My search is ongoing. Can I find unique and rare Pakistani or global species of the scorpions?
He also called on the government to help with the study as scorpion poison is being used all over the world and has been shown to be very effective in many diseases.
Sahibzada Jawad said scorpions were found in large quantities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. If the government takes this issue seriously, by setting up a laboratory, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa can become a major exporter of scorpion venom to the world.
He said he was currently not receiving any assistance and was traveling to remote areas to collect donations with his money. As a result, he has collected about 700 scorpions, which he used to collect. They are kept in the refrigerator at home due to a lack of laboratory facilities.
