Daughter of disgraced scientist speak out

DINA KHAN, daughter of the shamed Pakistani nuclear scientist AQ Khan has criticised claims made by President Pervez Musharraf in his autobiography. In her first statement since her father’s arrest in 2004, she said she wanted to set the record straight. She said suggestions that Dr Khan asked her to go public on Pakistan’s nuclear secrets were ludicrous. He was put under house arrest after admitting passing on nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya. In his book, the president claims that Dr Khan sent her a letter asking her to go to British journalists with secrets. She claims that the letter was for her mother and gave details of what really happened.
