Pakistan’s Nuclear Programme: Salam or Khan (A traitor from Bhopal)

Posted by

COMMENT : Is A Q Khan really the father of Pakistan’s nuclear programme? — Yasser Latif Hamdani

Why or how a metallurgist like Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan came to be known as the father of our bomb. What was his role essentially in nuclear weapons production?

Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan is our self-styled ‘Baba-e-Bum’ and ‘Mohsin-e-Pak’. His extraordinary claim as a nuclear scientist is accepted carte blanche by the youth from the middle classes. Someone has to tell the truth some time. Dr Khan is neither a nuclear scientist nor the father of our nuclear programme. He is however by his own admission a traitor who sold nuclear secrets to various countries of the world, bringing infamy to Pakistan.

What is a nuclear scientist? The father of the US atomic bomb (and therefore atomic bomb in general) was J Oppenheimer, a theoretical physicist. The father of the Indian nuclear programme, Dr Homi Jehangir Bhabha was also a physicist. How is it then that metallurgist like Dr A Q Khan has come to be known as the father of Pakistan’s nuclear programme or nuclear bomb? Truth be told there are only two people that can be considered pioneers in nuclear programme related research in Pakistan. First is Dr Munir Ahmad Khan of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) who was the real hero of 1998’s nuclear tests and who detonated Chaghi II, a plutonium device, which was much stronger than the uranium devices of Chaghi I. The second person is someone whose contribution to human understanding in Physics is so much more fundamental and greater than any of Pakistan’s other scientists, that to even associate him with a weapons’ programme is to belittle him. He is Dr Abdus Salam who was instrumental in setting up the PAEC.

    It would be very interesting, (rather inspiring!)to see how AQ Khan, and his supporters, react to the truth! What did he sell to North Korea?

    Unfortunately the illiterate masses of Pakistan have been led into this false understanding that Qadeer Khan made the bomb. It was a neccesity at that time to protect the real master minds of Pakistan’s nuclear program. It was essential to guard the real players and put up a dummy to create a deception. Qadeer Khan being a greedy person tried to avail this opportunity and sold some of the nuclear secrets to the black market dealers which brought ill-fame to Pakistan. He was exposed and was disgraced but as the real master minds are still behind the scene and working to improve the technology, Qadeer Khan is enjoying respect of the illiterate masses. He will have to pack up and leave as soon as the real story is out. Iran’s nuclear master mind was killed by the Israeli agents to give a shocking set back to Iran’s nuclear program. Same would have happened to our real heroes if we had not put up Qadeer Khan as the front man.

    A teen-aged boy of Bhopal(India)named Abdul Qadeer, came to Pakistan through little known transit route of Khokarapar and reached Karachi, like hundred thousands other Urdu-speaking migrants from Indian Bahar, commonly called ‘Bahari’ or ‘hindustani’. Not much is known about AQ Khan about his educational progress while in Karachi. Probably after doing his graduation he found way to Holland, where he did his course in the science of Metallurgy and he became a Metallurgist.And one day, in the city post office, by chance,he met a Dutch lady, who,later on became Mrs A.Q.Khan. Then in the early 70,he came to Pakistan and started writing letters direct to PM.Z.A.Bhutto, informing him that he has returned from Holland with such a qualification and requested PM to provide him suitable job. This was a time when Karachi Steel Mill was built. Dr. Khan, being a metallurgist, was provided a job with per month salary of two thousands. When he stabilized himself in the Steel Mill job, then he again started writing letters to P.M. demanding that he be posted in Islamabad and allowed to work with Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission. It is in this manner that he ultimately found a place in Islamabad. The rest of his life story is known to all insiders in the Atomic Energy Commission and its Chairman, Dr. Munir Ahmad Khan. Pakistan became 7th Nuke power because of the hard team-work of thousands of scientists, headed by Dr. Samar Mubarakmand. At a seminar in GCU, Dr. Samar said that of all the participating scientists at Chaghi,60 percent were Old Ravians, students of Deptt. of Physics, Govt. College, Lahore. But,Dr.A.Q. Khan has got his own story of claims calling himself as the sole ‘father’ of Atom Bomb.’ Where as his actual role in the manufacturing our ‘Atom bomb’ is not more than 5 to 6 percent,at the most. But he is habitual to claim as if he is the sole architect of ‘Atomic’ Pakistan. Any how he was passively and silently allowed a free hand to go on playing the game of self-glorification, as the sole ‘Baba-e-Bamb’. These are some of the bitter facts about the person whom the illiterate masses regard him as hero, but he himself tried his best to be reduced to zero due to his trading links in foreign countries.

    Doctor A.Q.Khan can be known by the company he keeps. He has no freinds in scientific community.
    Has he done anything in the last 20 years?
    No Scientist will waste 20 years of his life. What a waste.

    The APT TITLE for A Q Khan is “THE FATHER OF TRAITORS of PAKISTAN” – A confirmed THIEF who SOLD the Atomic Secrets for PERSONEL AGGRANDIZEMENT, a PLAGIARIZER,CLAIMING UNDUE CREDIT FOR HIMSELF, IGNORING THE selfless contributions of pakistani physicists headed by THE ONLY AHMADI MUSLIM NOBEL LAUREATE PROF. Dr. ABDUS SALAM RERSPECTED & ESTEEMED BY THE GLOBAL SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY-THE REAL FATHER OF PAKISTAN’S ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION-CHIEF SCIENTIFIC ADVISOR TO THE THREE PRESIDENTS OF PAKISTAN & HONOURED BY THE UNESCO in Italy( ABDUS SALAM INSTITUTE OF THEORETICAL PHYSICS )–FACTS speak louder than mere utterances of A Q Khan blowing his own trumpt, like a frog in a WELL in Pakistan!!!! HIS CROAKING CAN NOT CHANGE THE HISTORICAL FACTS recorded in the PAGES OF WORLD HISTORY INDEPENDENTLY BY UNBIASED HISTORIANS,INDEED!!!!
