Osama Bin Laden
Islamabad, Jan 10: With Pakistan still at the receiving end of global flak over the covert operation carried out by US forces that ultimately led to the killing of dreaded Al Qaeda terrorist Osama Bin Laden; the question if Pakistan is doing enough to root out terrorism needs to be answered. In an attempt to wipe off all evidence of the apparent taint, Pakistan has decided to destroy the house in which Osama was killed by US Navy Seals.

It has been reported that the house in Abottabad will be flattened by rocket-propelled grenades and then bulldozed. According to a report by The Sun, Pakistan military chiefs took this decision to prevent the walled complex from becoming a sick shrine to the al-Qaeda terror master.

Pak Interior Minister Rehman Malik said, "We will hit it like an enemy fort. But first we must erase everything related to Bin Laden from our country."

The demolition is expected to take place next month. Expected to be carried out on a big scale, Pakistan Chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas has announced that US and European officials will be invited for the 'big event'.

Pakistan was in the eye of storm when the US snooped down on Osama who has been hiding in Pakistan territory for a while with the country's administration allegedly unaware of the fact. He was busted at Abbottabad, 30 miles from capital Islamabad.

US intelligence officials have already completed forensic examination of the area and Arabic translators are snooping on the 187,000 documents seized after Osama’s death on May 2011.
