LAHORE : Liaqat Baloch, Deputy Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan and Secretary General of the Milli Yakjehti Council has termed the demise of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan as a national shock and a common grief of the entire nation. He said that Dr. Qadeer achieved nuclear capability with his team, strength of faith and patriotism, provided a reliable barrier system against external aggression forces. The entire nation is proud of Dr. Qadeer Khan’s services. He was an all-round personality: an engineer, a nuclear scientist, a writer, a poet and a columnist and a man of high temperament.

Liaqat Baloch offered funeral prayers on the occasion of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan’s funeral prayers at Faisal Masjid Islamabad with thousands of people present in the porches, premises and courtyard of the mosque due to heavy rains and disruption of the system due to stormy situation. He led the prayers in the congregation. Talking to reporters on the occasion, Liaqat Baloch said that he had been very friendly with Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan since 1985 and always discussed national issues. The day before his death, Dr. Qadeer telephoned him, we had a long conversation and agreed to meet on October 13 at 4: 00 PM, but Allah did not give him a respite. Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan lived a glorious, successful, lasting life. The love and prayers of the whole nation were with him. The successive governments after General Pervez Musharraf’s government also treated Mohsin-e Pakistan no respect. The news of the late Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan’s death used to spread on social media due to his illness. Whenever he was contacted, he would say that some people were in a hurry to kill him. But when death actually came him, such news did not spread and he said Labbaik on the call of his Creator – Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

Liaqat Baloch said that we demand that the Government should include the comprehensive, scientific, research and nuclear science services of Mohsin Pakistan Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan’s, in recognition of his invaluable services at the schools and colleges levels in the General Science and Social Sciences.

Deputy Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Mian Muhammad Aslam, Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Islamabad District Nasrullah Randhawa, Muhammad Kashif Chaudhry, Mian Muhammad Ramzan and Dr. Farid Ahmad Paracha were also present on the occasion.
