widely condemned by whom? the US, France, etc what's condemnable is the hypocrisy of those that killed millions of natives and stole their lands, what's condemnable is the overthrow of democratic governments so that certain nation's could steal the resources.
so spare us the sanctimonious hypocrisy built on a morality based on selective blindness.

Smuggler and thief is Hero of Terrorist country. Interestingly both National Hero of Pakistan are born in India. Pakistan also have a Indian language as its National language. Pakistan deserve all the suffering its getting.

The man who single-handedly stole uranium enrichment technology. Even people who don't support his work recognise his skill both in physics and espionage.

The "Merchant of Menace" aka maut ka saudagar is finally dead, a thief, a cheater, who sold nuclear enrichment technology to an irresponsible country like North korea is being hailed as a hero in Pakistan. This monster has made world a more dangerous place to live.
