The "Muslim" Nobel laurate in Physics Dr.Abdus Salam was a Qadiani, a heretical sect of Islam in the Indian subcontinent. Qadianis have been declared as non-Muslims in Pakistan from 1975. Qadianis have been subjected to frequent bouts of violence for the last 50 years in Muslim countries. The main stream Muslims say that Qadianis call the founder of their sect the Final Prophet after Mohammed and this makes them heretics in the eyesof mainstream Muslims, for whom Mohammed was the final prophet without any doubt. Thousands of Qadianis have been killed in Pakistan over the last 50 years.

If you take this into account, there is only 1 Muslim Nobel laurate in sciences i.e. in chemistry
