To match similar "Nuclear power in X" articles (such as Nuclear power in Finland), may I suggest that this article might concentrate on the civil nuclear power program, with information on nuclear weapons moved to Pakistan and weapons of mass destruction? Gralo 03:29, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Honestly, I'm not sure if anyone cares enough. And then if we did get such an article, it would be full of "Pakistan did this which was purported as for civilian uses but was really just to get the bomb." -Theanphibian (talkcontribs) 05:48, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Shockwaves discvered (globe).jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Shockwaves discvered (globe).jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Rename this article[edit]

I recently objected to the change in name of two articles from "Nuclear Program of Iran" and "Nuclear Program of North Korea" to "Nuclear Power in Iran" and "Nuclear Power in North Korea." I believe both new titles were misleading. The articles talked about much more than nuclear power - i.e. the use of nuclear energy to produce electricity. In the discussion, other editors pointed to this and other articles as examples of the standard article title. I believe this is another case of a misleading article title. While Pakistan has a nuclear power program, this article talks about much more than that. So I propose to change the name to the more accurate "Nuclear program of Pakistan."

Views? NPguy (talk) 19:41, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

It would be misleading and incoherent. If it were to change to Nuclear program, then the article must mention the nuclear weapons programme, nuclear medical programme, and educational institute that are under the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission. Other organizations who also contributed in the weapons programme must be added in the article. The article may be too long to read. So we must accept the respective policy of Wikipedia's article lenght policy. So, I protest and object this suggestion to change of name of this article. This article talks more than nuclear energy in Pakistan rather than how the programme is being run. And, how its been developed under the leadership of scientists. So, please, do not change it, leave it the way it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.0.105.21 (talk) 23:22, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Biased and Based on Prejudice[edit]

Ok, the article is based on biased and prejudice. The introduction's first sentence "Pakistan, which is not which is not a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty", can somebody tell me what is that suppose to mean? India and Isreal also not signatory of NPT. So, how come these claus or sentence is not written in their pages. Criticism is highyly appreciated but with neutrality. And also, The Nuclear Program of Pakistan, does not makes sense because the country has a nuclear power plants which are under IAEA's safegaurd. Unlike Iran and North Korean, in which the programs are based on militarization process. The nuclear power in Pakistan seems to be more neutral rather than the Nuclear Program of Pakistan.

Very poor recent edits - fix or revert?[edit]

This article was edited extensively by an IP editor on February 27, 2011. Most of the edits are poorly written, repetitive, and inaccurate. I started to try to fix, but this will be time consuming and I'm thinking of simply reverting. I'd welcome the views of other editors. NPguy (talk) 18:11, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
