Father Of Pakistan’s Nuclear Programme A.Q. Khan Insults Dr. Kalam

Updated on 5 September, 2017 at 5:07 pm By

While Pakistan officially condoled the death of former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam, a disgraced nuclear physicist from the country attacked the credentials of the ‘Missile Man of India’ by calling him an “ordinary” scientist.

Abdul Qadeer Khan, also known as the father of nuclear science of Pakistan, insulted the memory of Dr. Kalam with his shocking remarks during a telephonic interview with BBC.

“India’s missile programme was developed with the help of Russia and Dr Kalam didn’t make a big difference in developing the missiles.”

 

He added that Kalam had no remarkable invention to his credit and had no contribution in the fields of satellite technology, missile technology or astro-physics.

 

A.Q. Khan also made scathing remarks on Kalam’s elevation to India’s top post. He said that Kalam was made President by the then NDA government only to lure Indian Muslim voters.

One has no reason to take offence to A.Q. Khan’s remarks because Dr. Kalam’s glittering reputation can’t be tarnished by the words of someone who was put under house arrest for leaking nuclear secrets.

In 2004, the United States had provided evidence incriminating Khan for supplying crucial nuclear secrets to foreign countries, especially North Korea. He was dismissed from service and put under house arrest.A court in Pakistan declared him a free citizen in 2009 but US continues to label him as a “serious proliferation risk”.
