This note is in response to the letter by Engr Qasim Iqbal Khan that appeared on June 12, 2013 on the subject of ‘Coal Development’. I totally agree with the author, Dr Samar Mubarakmand has been misleading the nation in areas where he has no expertise. From Underground Coal Gasification at Thar to Rekodiq in Balochistan it has been a big hoax. Nuclear Science and Commercial Mining have nothing in common. Experts should restrict themselves to their area of expertise otherwise they present layman views which are misleading.
