Condolences & tributes from all across the nation pour in:

Deeply saddened by the passing of Dr A Q Khan. He was loved by our nation because of his critical contribution to making us a nuclear weapon state. This has provided us security against an aggressive much larger nuclear neighbour. For the people of Pakistan, he was a national icon.
