LAHORE: Renowned nuclear physicist, activist distinguished Forman Christian College professor Professor Pervez Hoodbhoy on Wednesday said that there was no danger to religion from science, and therefore both could exist in their own domains without clashing. He gave a broad historical overview of the development of science in the world and said that Muslims were world leaders in science. He charted the development of science in South Asia by noting that despite the fact the Mughals were very rich and made magnificent buildings, they did not promote the study of science. “We need to change our approach to science for it to develop and flourish in Pakistan,” he emphasised. Professor Hoodbhoy further elaborated the rise of anti-science moments all around the world, especially in the United States and India.
