The former Pak Army Chief and the Presidnet of Pakistan General (R) Pervez Musharraf has blamed Dr. Abdul Qadeer for providing immense loss to Pakistan.
In a talk show of Such TV ‘Aain aur Awam’ hosted by Azeem Chaudhary, Pervez Musharraf said A.Q.Khan who is the hero of Pakistan, infact who was the hero of mine as well. But after that what he did, had produced great loss for Pakistan. Now he (A.Q.Khan) is on TV and in books blaming me for all these. Let’s forget it! In short, I’ll say, he was the person for casuing great loss to Pakistan.
He also reminded Dr. A.Q.Khan that he is living in full-proof security because of me. I (Musharraf) protected him. He is secure in Pakistan because of me. While he is blaming me for the current situation.
However, Pervez Musharraf didn’t clear about Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan of how he produced loss to his country. The discussion then turn towards the proliferation of weapons and nuclear plants and the Pak-America relations during Musharraf’s era.
On 4 July 2008, in an interview, Qadeer Khan laid the blame on President Musharraf and later on Benazir Bhutto for transferring the technology, claiming that Musharraf was aware of all the deals and he was the “Big Boss” for those deals. Abdul Qadeer Khan said that, “Musharraf gave centrifuges to North Korea in a 2000 shipment supervised by the armed forces. The equipment was sent in a North Korean plane loaded under the supervision of Pakistan security officials.”
