While inviting a new controversy in the political aura, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Osama Bin Laden was martyred. He is facing criticism for calling the 9/11 mastermind a ‘martyr’.
The comment was made in the parliament at a time when Imran Khan was explaining how Pakistan’s relation with the US was in trouble since the killing of Osma Bin Laden by the American special forces in Abottabad.
“The Americans came to Abbottabad and killed Osama bin Laden. Martyred him,” Mr. Khan made this statement in Parliament.
“The Oxford-educated PM of Pakistan, Imran Khan just declared Osama Bin Laden a “shaheed” the Muslim term for a martyr,” wrote Reham Khan, an activist.
Meena Gabeena, a Pakistani activist, wrote on Twitter, “Muslims all over the world are struggling because of the discrimination they face due to recent terrorism & our PM makes it worse by calling obl a martyr of Islam!”
