He was the first Pakistani and the first Muslim to receive a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1979 for his contribution to electroweak theory. Salam was also a key figure in the development of Pakistan's nuclear program but later faced controversy due to his Ahmadiyya faith, a minority sect that faces discrimination in Pakistan. Despite this, he remained committed to promoting science education in his home country and helped establish the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.
