Nuke Khan alias A.Q. Khan is a free man again, thanks to President Zardari. Khan is a known nuclear proliferator and through his unique nuclear network, committed a crime against humanity. Though lionised by many Pakistanis as the father of the country’s atomic bomb, he confessed to selling nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya in 2004.
It has been five years since he was put under house arrest. Now a Pakistani High Court releases him with the verdict that Nuke Khan has never been involved in any kind of nuclear proliferation or criminal activity.
