ARCHIVE ARTICLE:IS ANYBODY AWAKE?: PERVEZ HOODBHOY HAS BEEN DIVULGING ABOUT NATIONAL NUCLEAR PREPAREDNESS STATUS SINCE 2002

Pak nuclear warheads already in place

 
 

LONDON: Working secretly round the clock, Pakistani scientists have built up a sizeable nuclear arsenal and its nuclear warheads were already in place on missiles, a leading scientist has said.

Pervez Hoodbhoy, Professor of Nuclear Physics at Quaid-e- Azam University in Islamabad told the Times that “scientists have been working in three shifts over the past three years since the Kargil conflict.”

Unknown-2Hoodbhoy said there were clear indications that the nuclear warheads were already in place on missiles.

“We are much closer to a nuclear confrontation with India than at any other time,” he was quoted by the leading London daily as saying on Monday.

He said the country could have more warheads than previously thought.

The disclosure raised the possibility that Pakistan could assemble more nuclear warheads than the estimated 30 to 50. Each warhead is understood to have the same explosive power as the US atomic weapon dropped over Hiroshima in 1945.

According to the report, India has already taken its warheads out of storage to be fitted to delivery systems.

British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, leaves for the region on Monday to try to ease tensions and to open dialogue. During his talks in Islamabad and New Delhi, he will propose establishing greater contact between the two countries to avoid either side accidentally triggering a nuclear holocaust.
