“Osama bin Ladin is a martyr”

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) teamed up with the outlawed Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) on Sunday to declare slain al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden the ‘martyr of Islam’ at the Istehkaam-e-Pakistan Caravan on The Mall.
The right-wing parties denounced the US interference in Pakistan’s affairs and held the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)-led federal government responsible for the Abbottabad operation but avoided criticising the military and intelligence agencies’ failure. Speakers demanded canceling the strategic partnership with the US, stopping drone attacks in FATA, freeing the Shamsi Airbase from US forces, canceling visas of Americans and deporting US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Mentor for allegedly committing blasphemy.
JuD chief Hafiz Saeed criticised the media for not declaring Osama a martyr. He said that Americans did not have the courage to present Osama in courts. “I challenge India to come to any court, I’ll prove that India and not Hafiz Saeed is a terrorist,” the JuD chief said. Saeed remained supportive of the military leadership and put all the blame on the federal government. He threatened India with dire consequences if it carried out strikes against Pakistan. JuD leaders Hamza and Abdul Rehman condemned the Indian demand of arresting Saeed and handing him over. “India should hand over Narendra Modi, Bal Thackeray and
Colonel Perwaht to Pakistan because of their involvement in the Gujrat riots and Samjhota Express incident,” Hamza said. Quoting an unnamed general, he said that a group in the armed forces is ready to fight the US if ordered.
JI leader Farid Paracha said, “Saeed is not now a leader of the JuD only but of all religious parties of Pakistan.” He demanded making military training compulsory for all citizens. PTI leader Ijaz Chaudhry said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan has been demanding US exit from the region for years. “Until the American leave, there will be no peace in our country,” he said. The JuD called for funeral prayers in absentia for Osama in all cities of Pakistan. PML-N Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Naseer Bhutta, contrary to his party policy, spoke in favour of the military and said that they will never let the armed forces insulted in front of anyone.

    Dear God please save us from this menace! That Hafiz Saeed roams not just as a free man in our country, but is widely admired as a leader should make every thinking Pakistani shudder

    OBL was Panjabi Hero, who wanted and did conquer Kabul for them. Obvously he is their martyer and they can not hid their cryings and sighs. pashtoon have every reason to rejoice the death of the OBL. Since the early days of so called jihad in Afghanistan Pastho was replaced with Panjabi and Arabic. the whole of Afghan watan became the fifth province of Pakistan and practically the whole Afghan Pashtoon region from Attock till Kandahar, the Panjabi colonalists roamed around freely. Thanks to the unwize Alt Qaida strike that provoked the lone superpower who thrown away the Taliban Al Qaida terrorist clique in Kabul.

    Oh God what kind of Pakistan these parties want? If they want to win the elections by sympathizing with the taliban, please go to afghanistan. I am astounded by the political position even Imran Khan is now taking. what a huge disappointment!

    no, he was not a hero, it is simply his mode of death which has defined his status as a hero…

    i am glad he is dead, i just wish it had been anyone other than America who had been responsible for his death…
