In the midst of addressing the parliament, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the United States had martyred the mastermind of 9/11, Osama Bin Laden when the Navy Seals laid a successful operation of killing him. 

He also sparked controversy by stating that the partnership of their country with the United States on the sidelines of eradicating terrorism was “a mistake” which was committed by former Ministers in drafting the foreign policies. 

In his statement, Mr. Imran Khan reiterated, “I will never forget how we Pakistanis were embarrassed when the Americans came into Abbottabad and killed Usama Bin Laden, martyred him.” 

Apparently, he encountered a backlash from Ministers and his country people on the statement. One among the famous Pakistani activist Meena Gabeena lashed out on Imran Khan over his “Shaheed” statement by tweeting, “The Muslim world is trying to reclaim their image&values that terrorists like OBL and many more had destroyed … 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!” 

Also, former Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif didn’t agree with Imran Khan and claimed that Osama Bin Laden can’t be called a martyr because he was an “ultimate terrorist.” Many people and critics of the country announced a labeling “Taliban Khan” for their Prime Minister in the wake of his spurring comment. 

Bin Laden was killed in May 2011 in Abbottabad by the Navy SEALs which raided his hideout and he was the founder of Al-Qaeda as well as the mastermind of the 9/11 attack which shook the whole world. “Shaheed” is an Arabic word that is used for the martyrs of Islam, as per the reports and records in the media and history. It was also reported that Pakistan Prime Minister said that his country’s people were embarrassed when the operation took place.
