Pakistan's 'Bombfather' to launch new career
The man who built Pakistan's nuclear bomb, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, is launching a new career: politics. The scientist is considered a hero by many of his countrymen, who feel that his work has given the country its pride back. It has left the population feeling less threatened by neighbouring India. Pakistan remains the only Muslim country to have an atomic bomb.
