Guess who my brother just met while he was in Dubai?

Michael Jackson?

Er, no. Abdul Qadeer Khan.
The old Pakistani spin bowler?

No, you nit! The Pakistani nuclear scientist who was kept under house arrest in Islamabad till Friday for illegally passing on nuclear technology to rogue States like North Korea, Iran and Libya.
You mean AQ Khan? So why didn’t you say so at the beginning! But hang on. He may be free to walk around in Pakistan, but can he leave the country?

That’s what I thought. But it was definitely him. He was in a supermarket handing over some metal rings and rolls of paper to a bunch of youngsters.
What do you mean by youngsters?

Well, to be honest I just overheard a bit of the conversation which involved something about the words ‘Doom’, ‘Xbox 360’ and ‘PS3’.
That sounds like ominous ingredients for a terrible weapon. Did you hear the word ‘uranium’ being whispered?

No. But one of the kids did ask him, ‘Hey, Q Man, you got some of those freaky x-ray goggles I can look at hijab-clad women with’?

Do say: Yes, we Khan!
Don’t say: AQ ho raha hai, ji?
