Abdul Qadeer Khan: Nuclear hero in Pakistan, villain in the West | New Sun, 10 Oct 2021 11:21:36 +0000

Abdul Qadeer Khan, revered as the father of Pakistan’s nuclear program, died on Sunday.

He was praised in Pakistan for turning it into the world’s first Islamic nuclear power. But he was seen by the West as a dangerous renegade responsible for smuggling technology into rogue states.

The nuclear scientist has died aged 85 in the capital, Islamabad, after being recently hospitalized with COVID-19.

He was considered a national hero for having put the country on a par with its Indian neighbors in the atomic domain and made its defenses “impregnable”.

But he found himself in the crosshairs of controversy when he was accused of illegally proliferating nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea.

Khan was placed under house arrest in Islamabad in 2004 after admitting to leading a proliferation network in the three countries.

In 2006, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but recovered after surgery.

A court ended his house arrest in February 2009, but his movements were strictly monitored and he was accompanied by the authorities whenever he left his home in an upscale neighborhood of Islamabad.

Crucial contribution

Born in Bhopal, India on April 1, 1936, Khan was just a young boy when his family emigrated to Pakistan during the bloody partition of the subcontinent in 1947 at the end of British colonial rule.

He obtained a science degree from the University of Karachi in 1960, then studied metallurgical engineering in Berlin before completing graduate studies in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The crucial contribution to Pakistan’s nuclear program has been the purchase of a model uranium centrifuge, which transforms uranium into military grade fuel for fissile nuclear material.

He was accused of stealing it in the Netherlands while working for the Anglo-Dutch-German nuclear engineering consortium Urenco, and bringing it back to Pakistan in 1976.

On his return to Pakistan, then Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave Khan responsibility for the government’s uranium enrichment project.

By 1978 his team had enriched uranium and by 1984 they were ready to detonate a nuclear device, Khan later said in a newspaper interview.

The 1998 nuclear test saw Pakistan impose international sanctions and send its economy into free fall.

Khan’s aura began to fade in March 2001 when then-President Pervez Musharraf, apparently under pressure from the United States, removed him from the presidency of Kahuta Research Laboratories and made him an advisor. special.

But the Pakistani nuclear establishment had never expected to see its most revered hero under questioning.

The move came after Islamabad received a letter from the International Atomic Energy Agency, a United Nations watchdog, containing allegations that Pakistani scientists were the source of cheap nuclear knowledge.

Khan said in a speech to the Pakistan Institute of National Affairs in 1990 that he had connections with world markets while developing Pakistan’s nuclear program.

“It was impossible for us to manufacture every piece of equipment in the country,” he said.

“I saved the country”

Khan was pardoned by Musharraf after his confession, but later retracted.

“I saved the country for the first time when I made Pakistan a nuclear nation and I saved it again when I confessed and took all the blame on myself,” Khan told the AFP news agency in an interview in 2008 when he was effectively under house arrest.

The scientist believed in nuclear defense as the best deterrent.

After Pakistan carried out atomic tests in 1998 in response to India’s tests, Khan said Pakistan “never wanted to manufacture nuclear weapons, it was forced to do so”.

Almost a decade ago, Khan tried his luck in the political arena, forming a party – the Tehreek-e-Tahafuz Pakistan (Save Pakistan Movement) – in July 2012 in the hope of gaining votes on the basis of the respect he still inspires in Pakistan. .

But he dissolved it a year later after none of its 111 candidates won seats in national elections.

Khan also sparked new controversy the same year when, in an interview with Urdu newspaper Daily Jang, he said he transferred nuclear technology to two countries under the leadership of assassinated Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

He did not name the countries, or say when Bhutto, the twice-elected prime minister who was assassinated in 2007, supposedly gave the orders.

“I was not independent but I was obliged to respect the orders of the Prime Minister”, he declared.

Bhutto’s Pakistani People’s Party denied the allegation as “groundless and groundless”.

None of the controversies seem to have dented Khan’s popularity even years later.

He regularly wrote opinion pieces, often preaching the value of a science education, for the popular Jang newspaper group.

Many schools, universities, institutes and charity hospitals across Pakistan bear his name, his portrait decorating their signs, stationery and websites.

Odisha engineering student consumes poison as his girlfriend refuses to pay back the money Sat, 09 Oct 2021 05:44:42 +0000

Cutoff: An engineering student consumed poison after his girlfriend allegedly refused to return his money. The victim died while being treated in a private hospital in the city.

Sritam Swain, a 3rd year B.Tech student at Gandhi University of Engineering and Technology (GIET) in Gunupur, and a resident of Paradip area in Jagatsinghpur district, was reported to have loaned an amount of 2 lakh Rs to his girlfriend for treatment from his father.

The relationship between the young couple turned sour after Sritam asked his girlfriend for money. Even the young girl’s brother allegedly physically assaulted the youngster and threatened to kill him.

Sritam, who had been stressed by the problem in recent days, booked a room in a hotel in the Badambadi district of Cuttack town on Wednesday and allegedly consumed poison. In critical condition, he made a video call to his brother, who immediately contacted Badambadi police for help saving his brother’s life.

Acting quickly, the police reached the hotel and rushed the victim to SCB Medical College & Hospital. After his condition deteriorated, he was transferred to a private hospital where he died yesterday.

A case in this regard was filed at the Mangalabag police station. After the autopsy, the police handed over the body to family members and opened an investigation into the case.

A police source said an operation is underway to locate the girl, who is believed to be responsible for the student’s suicide.

The victim allegedly shot a video while consuming poison in a hotel room.

Daewoo Shipyard’s smart ship solution achieves ABS certification Tue, 05 Oct 2021 04:17:18 +0000

[Courtesy of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering]

SEOUL – A smart ship platform developed by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, a leading shipbuilder in South Korea, has achieved certification from an international classification society in the United States. The shipbuilder believes the certification will simplify the process of applying its smart system to ships without separate verification.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) said its DS4 intelligent ship platform won the Product Design Assessment (PDA) award from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). DSME said that the quality of its solution has been objectively verified by meeting more specific and reinforced requirements so that it can be applied immediately to actual ships.

DSME is the first in the industry to obtain PDA certification in the field of cybersecurity. The company would provide a smart ship solution that ensures security against external cyber threats, as well as the systems needed to maintain and repair various data that helps ships perform optimally.

DSME considers cybersecurity to be a key element of autonomous vessels. “We believe this certification will serve as a cornerstone in advancing the era of autonomous ships,” DSME R&D institute chief Choi Dong-kyu said in an Oct. 5 statement.

As South Korean shipbuilders work hard to develop smart ship technologies, the demand for cybersecurity protection has increased due to the rapid convergence of operational information and communication technologies. Cyber ​​security technology is designed to protect data and software from outside threats.

Smart ships are expected to revolutionize the landscape of ship design and operations. Besides traffic efficiency, smart ships can minimize human error which has caused around 70-80% of shipping accidents. Intelligent navigation can be divided into unmanned vessels operated by an operator from a shore-based control center and autonomous vessels that use an on-board computer that makes decisions about route, speed, fuel consumption. , maintenance and even mooring in the port.
