Dr. Qadeer Khan widely - The Founder of Pakistans Nuclear Program is regarded as a national hero for helping Pakistan to become seventh nuclear power. Pakistan successfully tested its nuclear capability in May 1998. In March 2001 President Musharraf made him his adviser in science and technology. In 2004 he was sacked form this position and was put under house arrest after his confession of passing nuclear secrets to other countries. In his Televised address Dr Khan offered his regrets and apologies and took full responsibility for his actions. But later he revealed that he made that declaration under state pressure. On 9th Feb 2009 A.Q Khan was finally released form his house detention.
