This year, Youm-e-Takbeer has been marked by the inauguration of 1100 MWe K-2 in Karachi which adds much valuable, cleaner, reliable and affordable electricity to the national energy mix.

This underscores the role of nuclear science and technology in the socio-economic development of the country and the welfare of its people. Besides nuclear power generation, Pakistan has harnessed nuclear technology for public service in diverse areas including cancer diagnosis and treatment, public health, agriculture, environment protection and industry.

The nation pays its tribute to the contributions of its scientists, engineers and technicians for the security and development of Pakistan.

The nuclear explosions, which were conducted in self-defence to respond to India’s aggression of nuclear tests, made Pakistan’s defence invincible.

As a result, Pakistan became the first nuclear power in the Muslim world and seventh in the world.
