QUETTA: Hundreds took to the streets of Pakistans city of Quetta on Monday to pay homage to Osama bin Laden, chanting death to America and setting fire to a US flag, witnesses and organisers said.
Angry participants belonging to a religious party in Quetta, the capital of southwestern province Baluchistan, were led by federal lawmaker Maulawi Asmatullah. They also torched a US flag before dispersing peacefully.
It was the first rally in Pakistan after the United States announced that bin Laden had been killed in an overnight commando mission in Pakistan.
Organisers said between 1,000 and 1,200 people attended the rally, but witnesses put the figure closer to 800.
Bin Laden was the hero of the Muslim world and after his martyrdom he has won the title of great mujahed (Muslim fighter), Asmatullah said.
Perhaps they should try fishing for him...
Send a Tomahawk into it.
The next time Pakistan is hit by an earthquake, typhoon or tsunami perhaps the US should tell the Pakistanis to pound sand and get their aid from someplace else.
Are they going to have a pig-picking?
No doubt we know where they stand... so why are we GIVING them “great Satan’s $$$”
We should airburst 10kt neutron bombs over mourning marches for Bin Laden.....followed by a heavy spraying of mustard gas on the survivors.
