Since Pakistan became a nuclear power, the world has eyed us and wanted to stop our growth. Our enemies disguised themselves as our friends and have promised us the moon and the stars if we hand over our nuclear strength to them, but there are some strong people in Pakistan who understand the ongoing battle. Pakistan has seen so many tribulations in the last two decades; we were unwillingly pulled into Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Terrorism has become a homegrown weed in our backyards. May 28 of every year, makes us realise that our nuclear program is the most disliked and unwanted thing for our neighbours and the world around us, and from the so-called terrorist activities to the drone attacks, all atrocities are an effort to keep us away from further advancement in the field of nuclear research. May 28 1998 was the day when Pakistan became a nuclear power by conducting six nuclear tests at Chaghi, Balochistan; it was the year when India also conducted nuclear tests on May 11 and 13 at Pokhran. Unfortunately the western authorities, not only frowned on Pakistan’s remarkable accomplishment, but also imposed harsh monetary sanctions against Pakistan for acquiring the nuclear capability. On the other hand, India was treated differently for the same ‘crime.’ The credit of the nuclear tests goes to the Pakistan army, to our nuclear scientists and above all to Mr. Nawaz Sharif, the expected Prime Minister of Pakistan. PROFESSOR ALI SUKHANVER, Multan, May 2
