He became the very first Pakistani to achieve this distinction, and only the fourth from the subcontinent, when he won the Noble Prize in 1979.
Born in 1926 in a remote village in Punjab, British India, Salam was a child prodigy. He came from humble beginnings, growing up in a small brick house with a large family of eleven. While Salam’s legacy looms large in the world of physics, he is largely forgotten in Pakistan because of his faith.
