This chapter begins with the prestige of the Nobel Prize. It then describes Salam's receipt of the prize and the condemnation he received from his own country of Pakistan. It is argued that although Salam was a great scientist, as his Nobel Prize attests, he was greater as an organizer and achiever, but greatest as a voice, a conscience of justice, speaking for the advancement of science among the disinherited.

Keywords:   Abdus Salam, Nobel Prize, scientists, Pakistan
