Pakistan’s well-known nuclear physicist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan has recently expressed his concerns that neither Prime Minister Imran Khan nor any of his cabinet members inquired after his health.
Talking to Dawn, the ailing scientist said: “I am quite disappointed that neither the prime minister nor any of his cabinet members has inquired after my health.”
When the entire nation was offering prayers for my early recovery from the ailment not a single government functionary had even made a telephone call to inquiry about my health, Dawn quoted him as saying.
Earlier, Dr AQ Khan was hospitalised on August 26 for contracting Covid-19. His family sources later told media on Saturday that his health was gradually improving.
Meanwhile, a fake news was being spread on social media regarding Dr Khan’s death which was later debunked. “Some ungrateful people people have run the fake news of my death. But I want to tell my fans, lovers and the nation that I am still alive and recovering fast,” he said in a video message on Saturday.
In a similar manner, the scientist had rejected online death rumors in 2019.
