It seems like Prime Minister Imran Khan made a small but controversial blunder in a recent session in the National Assembly. He began his speech by drawing out Pakistan’s volatile relationship with the US. He mentioned all through his speech that Osama bin Laden was martyred! No matter how many blunders there might be, we certainly don’t expect to see this kind of blunder from our PM Imran Khan, who has always been persistent and assured in what he says.
What it could be? A tongue slip or there is something more to this statement. Osama Bin Laden had been tribal leader who had also been the conspirator of the 9/11 attack that shocked the world. In the end, besides that, he was assassinated in Pakistan by American soldiers’ troop, who entered in Pakistan and took his body along with them.
As always Twitter is flooded through tweets pointing out to the Prime Minister on his very blunt statement. Osama bin Laden has become the most trending hashtag on twitter in a matter of minutes.
Imran Khan has been consistent in his stance on Osama bin Laden. Today in the assembly where he called him a martyr was no slip of the tongue. pic.twitter.com/kP4ydf0KVX
