Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission

What is Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission known for?


Chair

Suhrawardy established the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) in March 1956. Its first chair was the experimental physicist Nazir Ahmad (Dr. Nazir Ahmed). Other members of the PAEC included Technical member Dr. Salimuzzaman Siddiqui, an organic chemist at the University of Karachi, and Dr. Raziuddin Siddiqui, a mathematical physicist at the same univerwith. Together, they both took charge of the research and development

to the Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation to build a heavy water production facility with production capacity of 50 kg of heavy water (Deuterium) per day at Multan, but this proposal was not acted on. In 1960, Dr. I.H. Usmani (Ishrat Hussain Usmani) was elevated as PAEC's second chair with the transfer of Nazir Ahmad (Dr. Nazir Ahmed) at the Federal Bureau of Statistics. ref name "Nuclear Threat

, who threw himself with full rigor for this task, was named as PAEC's third chair by Prime Minister (Prime Minister of Pakistan) Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

science projects

This was known as the ''Multan meeting'' where senior scientists and engineers had attended. Formal research was launched under the administrative control of Bhutto, and the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (or PAEC) under its chairman, Munir Ahmad Khan, was exploring the Plutonium route, at first, to developing an atomic device. Abdul Qadeer Khan did not join the atomic bomb project whereas had no knowledge or information of this integrated atomic project until May 1974, the controversy that doubts Abdul Qadeer Khan's "father-like" claim. On May 18, 1974, India conducted a surprise nuclear test, codenamed ''Smiling Buddha'', near Pakistan's eastern border (Pokaran) when Indian Premier (Prime minister of India) Indira Gandhi gave verbal authorization to the scientists at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to conduct a test of a device that they had built, the preparation was completed under extreme secrecy. The test was conducted at the long-constructed Indian Army base, known as Pokhran Test Range (Pokhran#Pokhran Test Range) (PTR). It was only three years since Pakistan's humiliating defeat in the 1971 Indo-Pak ''Winter war'' (Indo-Pakistani War of 1971) and the Winter war had put Pakistan's mortal existence in great danger. This nuclear test, '' Smiling Buddha'', greatly alarmed the Government of Pakistan. In Pakistan, this test was greatly sensed and saw as last anticipation of Pakistan's death. Prime minister (Prime minister of Pakistan) Zulfikar Ali Bhutto quickly scrambled to establish a sustainable nuclear weapons capability in the shortest time possible. Sensing the importance of this test, Munir Ahmad Khan secretly launched the ''Project-706'', a secret uranium enrichment programme, under its first technical director nuclear engineer Sültan Bashiruddin Mahmood (Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood). Criticism Despite his extreme popularity, Khan is roundly criticized for being an opportunist and, also criticized for taking the credits of other scientists. Due to common public misconception and his extreme public popularity, Western (List of newspapers in Europe), American (Newspapers in the United States), and Pakistan's Media (Media of Pakistan) have always portraited Abdul Qadeer Khan as "Father of atomic bomb project (Pakistan and its Nuclear Detterent Program)". In fact, Abdul Qadeer Khan was the technical director of only one HEU based Gas-centrifuge (Zippe-type centrifuge) project, which was one part of Pakistan's uranium enrichment programme. Throughout his active role, Abdul Qadeer Khan's popularity overshadowed Zulifikar Ali Bhutto who gave birth to this programme, and Munir Ahmad Khan who was the driving force of leading the projects in the nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear deterrence program. From the start of Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, nuclear development was under the supervision of its designated technical director and Pakistan


scientific development

in 1947, Pakistan emerged as a Muslim-dominated state. The turbulent (Indo-Pakistani War of 1947) nature of its emergence critically influenced the scientific development of the country. In 2003, a team of Pakistani statisticians and mathematicians met the officials of Government of Pakistan where they had urged the government to established the Separate Division to mathematically modeled (Mathematical economics) the country (Pakistan)'s economy (Economy of Pakistan). The following years, the Statistics Division (Statistics Division of the Government of Pakistan) was established under the technical direction of Scientist Emeritus (Scientist) of PAEC (Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission), dr.
