Islamabad: Minister for Information for
Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira on Saturday said that the Pakistan
Peoples Party (PPP) was the founder of country’s nuclear programme,
which guaranteed its defence and security.
The minister, in his comments on Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s allegation that nuclear technology was transferred on the orders of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, said that Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto had given nuclear technology to the country and BB missile technology as their efforts to make the country’s defence impregnable were known to all.
“Benazir Bhutto is not alive and levelling such an allegation
by Dr Qadeer is not fair,” Kaira said.
Both the father and the daughter had made strenuous endeavours
for peace, development and prosperity in the world, especially in the
Muslim countries while the present PPP government is also following
their footsteps in promoting and strengthening ties with the world, including the Ummah, he added
