A seminary for women in Pakistan renamed its library to honor the former al Qaeda leader whom they refer to as the “martyr” Osama bin Laden, according to a report in The Express Tribune.

The Jamia Hafsia seminary in which the library is located is headed by Imam Maulana Abdul Aziz, who is the imam of Islamabad’s mosque, Lal Masjid.

“It is true that we have named the library after Osama bin Laden,” a source told AFP on Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity. “He might be a terrorist for others but we do not consider him as a terrorist. For us he was a hero of Islam.”

Bin Laden was the founder of al Qaeda, which claimed responsibility for the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, as well as other mass casualty attacks in places such as Egypt and Afghanistan.

Amongst other prohibitions and objections against the West, bin Laden called for the destruction of Israel.

Bin Laden was killed by special naval and Central Intelligence Agency forces on May 2, 2011, in Abbottabad, Pakistan. He had been living in a large, walled, private compound in Abbottabad. The United States later confirmed that Pakistani officials knew about bin Laden’s presence in Pakistan.

  3. Raj Nadia says:

    in this jewish press, it only talks about muslims, islams and against them… i never read something worthwhile about jewish people, the good things happening in them as jewish….; it would be nice to read something about their weather or something their government is accomplishing…

  4. Raj Nadia.
    Good point..
    I like to read about positive things as well.

  5. Yet US send billions in aid to those enemies! Ridiculous!

  6. Heroes kill innocent peoples?

  7. Wayne Hughes says:

    We need to stop aid .2016 we will .

  8. Everybody’s hero is someone else’s terrorist. The US began with terrorism if you ask the British, and so on and on. Killing each other, followed by justification. What would you seriously expect?

  9. Do you really think Bin Laden is down? Where is the corpse?

  10. Diriangen Re says:

    Stop the islam…!!!

  11. Pedro Acosta says:

    I consider many Pakistanis inbred.

  12. Anonymous says:

    So will the library have loads of pornography like Bin Laden's compound?

  13. that is the reason why they kept Bin Laden holed up secretly in Pakistan

  14. Little Joe says:

    Then read something else or visit weather.com

  15. Little Joe says:

    He died dec 2001. There is a cache of the story online. I remember reading about it overseas back then.

  16. What? That is crazy these people need to get out more.

  17. One more reason to remove them from the planet

  18. Mary West says:

    This is so wrong!!!!!

  19. I wonder what book (singular on purpose) it has.

  20. But they are a bunch of pigs that is why they hid him

  21. Zakir Shah says:

    We don want to see any EU & West mischief makers we do have Russia and very near to Pakistan wear West & EU are both far away we can not even Trade that we we can do in our region with Iran and China and others .As aid by the west you will find that amount in the name of EU & WEST agents in Swiss Banks Pakistan for Self reliance & Trade with our Asian Nations brothers .We know our leaders are with you but our people are not they dont trust you any more By sending people like him or young girls on Education traps or like Dr Afridi .

  22. Zakir Shah says:

    The West & EU they have lost their trust in Asia,some agents leaders are with them but not the people of Asia the truth they are not well com in Asia .

  23. Raj Nadia says:

    😉 yeah u r right, its my mistake, i didnt knew that jewish press is a press against mulims or arabs, nothing else they report!! thanks to god, arabs exits that jewish press as well!!

  24. Raj Nadia says:

    it has been reported that bin laden was dead on bush regime, then obama again, sometimes , its confusing, press are all bunch of liars and conspiracies that need our logic sometimes…

  25. Raj Nadia says:

    thanks god , who ever ur god is, i respect , that there is someone here wants to read and promote peace… if only i read one or three articles about or against them MUSLIMs or ARABS , it wont raise my eyebrows, but all the time, since i liked this page, nothing i read but all bad things against muslims nothing good about them, or AT LEAST A GOOD THING ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE BUT NO, its ridiculous!

  26. Hey Raj, how can you say good things about muslims when you see something like this. A hero?? a killer yes. and if you and Monique want to live in lala land you are on the wrong planet. The reason they are talked about all the time is because they are evil people. Jewish people are God’s people and don’t kill just for the taste of blood.

  27. Nothing you can say Raj will change my mind about muslims. Too much history of violence, beheadings, worship of a stone and false gods. You must be a muslim. the name of God is capital G and not god.

  28. I know the psyche of Muslims in the sub continent,am from India. They will always lie to an infidel.

  29. And you are surprised — why?

  30. Jennifer Moe says:

    ….and my govt ,America, continues to fund these people!?!?!?

  31. Tracy Ramsey says:

    The Prophet Mohammed (SAW) was once asked what he most feared for his followers. Centuries later, his response, recorded in the hadith, haunts, stating he feared those who:

    …Interpret verses of the Qur’an out of context…A people that recite Qur’an….but it will not go past their throats, a people with excellent words and vile deeds. They will pass through the religion (of Islam) like the arrow passes through its quarry. They will no more come back to the religion than the arrow will come back to its course. They are the worst of human beings and the worst of all creation. They summon to the book of Allah, but they have nothing to do with it. Whoever kills them is closer to Allah than they.-

    “This is the true nature of Extremists & Hamas, which recites the Quran yet doesn’t hold it in their hearts, that “summon to the book of Allah but have nothing to do with it.” (Dr Qanta Ahmed)

  32. Visit the bottom of the Arabian sea..his corpse is somewhere down there…

  33. Little Joe…you attended his funeral in 2001 i guess..

  34. Tracy Ramsey says:

    Are you calling Mohammed a liar then Jayakrishnan? I’d be careful, lest you curse yourself as an infidel. Too many times now Muslims have turned the name of Allah from a blessing to a curse, and the words of their prophet into nothing so much as the hate filled ravings of their own insanity. If you want to wage jihad, start with the infidel you see in the mirror each day.

  35. Martin Henry says:

    This just goes to show what they are really like, s!.

  36. Judith Ross says:

    This is the country that has to be wiped out!

  37. HEY, DANIELE! hi! did you know that contrary to what your magical box says (Fox News) not all us Jews are filled with hate like you believe we are? And listen to this, it gets better! We don’t give a crap about your idols like the NRA, Sarah Palin and the Bushes. Most of us are LIBERALS! and did you know us Jews don’t believe in Jesus?? Yes! we’re gonna burn in hell! But it’s ok, because we’re (according to Fox) “the opposite of muslims” so I guess the less of two evils? Who’s in Lalalaland Now?

  38. Daniele Moseley.
    I’m Jewish..I appreciate your comment.
    I am post a lot about my love of Israel..
    Xo

  39. I’m not liberal..
    Independent.
    Farrah Jacques.
    Yes!! Not filled with hate, we don’t dance in the streets when innocent people are killed .

  40. Steven Costa says:

    And we send these despicable s aid?

  41. Run Guo says:

    level the library, because it is not levelled.

  42. Nice "ally" the US has in Pakistan… I suppose that the Pakistani government makes all the right noises in order to get the generous US aid… However, the Pakistani people show, time and again, that they're not friends of the US…

  43. Thank you. Lori! Let us not forget that the official name of Pakistan is "The Islamic Republic of Pakistan". This means that the whole country is dedicated to propagating the totalitarian and imperialist doctrines of Islam — exactly what Bin Ladin was dedicated to doing.

  44. Why do so many people worship destructive forces? You might as well name a library after a giant Earthquake if you love destruction so much. Then again, earthquakes are a natural phenomenon, not the work of men who sit on porcelain thrones…

  45. Gary Harper says:

    Our American government is afraid of Pakistan, because they are Muslim and nuclear. So, we give them billions of dollars "to fight terrorism". It is appeasement, like Chamberlain did for Hitler. We all see how that worked out, don't we? So, Pakistan continues to train terrorists, and hides Al Qaida within their borders. They are liars, hypocrites, and allies of no one, and want an Islamic world, and will do anything to reach that goal. There are good Pakistanis, but their military and Secret Services are basically Al Qaida front groups. No one in America will say it, but you can find it all in old articles from a decade ago or so. They are simply enemies of freedom, and are not our real allies. they only put up with us for the billions. They put up a secular front, but they are Al Qaida supporters and enablers, and hope for a worldwide theocracy soon, with an Islamic front man.
