'If Musharraf comes out, public will feed him to crows and kites'
November 12, 2008 21:15 IST
Describing Pervez Musharraf [Images] as a "traitor" and a "foreign agent", Pakistan's disgraced nuclear scientist A Q Khan has said if the former President comes out in the streets, the public will feed him to "crows and kites".
Khan, while recalling his contribution to the country, also acknowledged that former premier Benazir Bhutto [Images] gave him permission to "acquire help from China and North Korea" for Pakistan's missile programme.
Writing a column in the Urdu-language daily 'Jang', Khan, who was under house arrest since 2004 after admitting to selling nuclear secrets to countries like North Korea and Libya, had harsh and angry words for Musharraf.
The 72-year-old had earlier accused Musharraf of forcing him to issue a confession on state-run television.
"One of the traitors and foreign agents in the cloak of presidency tried to harm me but could not succeed in his goal and was expelled from the Aiwan-e-Sadr (presidential house)," Khan wrote.
"He himself has been disgraced fully...Now that self-styled commando cannot set foot on the streets of Pakistan for his whole life. If he does, people would tear him into pieces and serve them to crows and kites," he said.
He also wrote that in 1999, he had made a proposal to Musharraf to launch a satellite but "the dictator" did not accept it. "However, I am proud of the services I made to the country and I provided atomic power to it."
