Why do I call Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan my hero? Well, a few people count him in as someone who is responsible for Pakistan’s nuclear proliferation. However, there aren’t any substantial proofs to these claims. The evidence shows that he was a scapegoat for the crime someone else did. And its evident with his continuous efforts to clarify his position all his life, which was not allowed to him. So, why do I see him as a national hero?
Architect of Pakistan’s Nuclear Program
Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan is widely regarded as the architect of Pakistan’s nuclear program. Dr. A Q Khan, who was reviled by Western powers for turning Pakistan into nuclear power, worked tirelessly not only to turn Pakistan into nuclear power but also to develop and lead development programs for Pakistan’s strategic weapon systems. His contributions to Pakistan’s nuclear and missile programs, both technological and leadership-wise, aided in the establishment of a formidable defense system for Pakistan that went beyond its conventional capabilities.
Dr. A Q Khan has always been closely associated with Pakistani ideology and has taken pride in the great works of Muslim scientists. He worked hard to establish Pakistan’s nuclear program as a strong counter to India’s program, which would have resulted in a regional power imbalance.
Among the numerous honors and awards bestowed upon Dr. A Q Khan, it is worth noting that he received Pakistan’s highest civil award, Nishan-i-Imtiaz, twice, making him the only Pakistani to do so.
On the other hand, the Western powers have also accused Dr. A Q Khan of nuclear weapon proliferation. These allegations were nothing more than the West’s agitated reaction to its inability to prevent a Muslim country from becoming a nuclear power.
Dr. A Q Khan is still regarded, loved, and revered as one of Pakistan’s most talented scientists. He made significant contributions to the history of science, particularly in the field of atomic energy.

His sole selection for a site for atomic research is Kahota. The defense was always his main priority. His contribution to the atomic detonations at Chaghi in 1999 is a one-of-a-kind service.
