Pakistan college contest: Praise for bin Laden
LAHORE: Two months after the covert US raid that killed Osama bin Laden, posters emblazoned with images of the burning World Trade Center towers appeared at the countrys largest university advertising a literary contest to glorify the slain al Qaeda chief.
The poem and essay competition at the prestigious Punjab University shows the footholds of hard-line radicals on college campuses and growing efforts to raise their profile and influence even in the relatively cosmopolitan atmosphere of Pakistans culture capital, Lahore.
The contests organisers have kept their identities hidden. But many students and teachers suspect it is being held by a powerful radical student group that has increasingly enforced its conservative religious views on the rest of the campus sometimes violently.
The Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT), which is connected to Pakistans largest radical party, has denied involvement, saying it does not participate in secret activities. But its leaders have publicly acknowledged that many members support bin Laden and have a profound hatred for the US.
The groups rising ambitions have intensified fears about the radicalisation of Pakistans educated middle classes, who make up a large part of the public universitys population. The educated classes have been seen as a bulwark against terrorist groups such as the Taliban in the nuclear-armed country.
The ability of the IJT, to gain ground on the university even though many students reject its radical views also reflects a general unwillingness of Pakistani authorities to challenge the powerful radical forces.
Whoever is Americas friend is a traitor! roared the head of the student group, Zubair Safdar, in an interview with The Associated Press.
His views were echoed by 19-year-old student Bismah Khan as she read one of the posters promoting the bin Laden contest. One of three topics for the essay section was, Osama, a thorn piercing the hearts of infidels.
The group holding the contest identifies itself only as Sheik Lovers a reference to bin Laden, who was often called the Sheik and provided an email address for contestants to submit their entries by June 30. Attempts by the AP to contact organisers by email went unanswered, and it is unclear what kind of prizes would go to the winners.
Many students said they opposed the contest, reflecting the low support for bin Laden, al Qaeda and terrorist groups across the nation. The killer of humanity cannot be a great person, said student Ali Akbar.
A survey taken after bin Ladens death by the Washington-based Pew Research Centre showed that 12 percent of Pakistanis have a favourable view of al Qaeda. But only 10 percent approve of the US Navy SEAL operation that killed him on May 2 in Abbottabad. The raid humiliated Pakistan because the government was not told about it beforehand.
Anyone who thinks Pakistan is our friend is an idiot.
And we keep sending them foreign aid!
yep. i sure wish our government knew it.
(or worse, i am afraid they DO know, and they don’t care...)
“...the footholds of hard-line radicals on college campuses ...” is baloney.
the polls are often skewed deliberately for Western media. (think taquiyya).
many polls, show clearly that this is MAINSTREAM views there. not extremist. these ARE the “moderate” Muslims.
I wish we would cut all foreign aid to muslim countries. Why do we give our enemies money? Sheesh...
They want more Pakistan National Bird (Drones) over La-Hore.
this is MAINSTREAM views there. not extremist.
Although many refer to some muslims as extremists, they are usually just the ones who are actually following the teachings of the Koran and taking Mohammed's writings seriously. Islam is itself an extreme religion. It has not been hijacked, like some liberals claim.
People should submit limericks:
The Seals we all should be thanking
They dropped in—it wasn’t a pranking
To the bearded one’s surprise
He was shot ‘tween the eyes
And couldn’t even finish his wanking
Yes, haiku would be great too
Corpse brought onto ship
Team Six preps the body with
Dog drool and pig fat
Any chance the Muslims sponsoring this contest will award either of us a prize?
We definitely deserve at least an NPR Jihad tote bag.
Good stuff. I think we need to do our freeper part to
make this contest the best it can be, freepers man your
It was a dark and stormy night, the rain slashed the
night with every viscous strike of an allied missile.
Bin Ladin the master of terror, carefully planting his
feet on each side of the bore hole. Growning in agony
he lowered himself down hoping to relieve the awefull
pressure and gurgling sounds. “That bitch of a third
wife put dish soap in the tabooli again, Allah punish
her! Desperately massaging his swollen intestines, Osama
could see his third wife as she would pay for her crime.
UnnnnnngaaaAAAAhh, every thing seemed to shift as a
green haze welled up to blur his vision, “My Allah, even
my nose is running with this stuff.” Ropey strings of
steaming mucus festooned the front of his traditional murdering jihad costume, so lovingly sewn by his other wives, each tiny bead of C-4 carefully stitched with the finest det cord. “Will this swill never come out? Oh, it was good, the best flaming sheeps eyes he’d had in years.
the chilipotle sheeps eyes were particularly good, and like
a youth he had gorged on more than his share but now, now
the bill was coming due. Tenderly feeling his lower tract
he could count 15 separate lumps. Each one a source of
flaming agony waiting to make the slow passage out of
his inferno of an anus, a tired anus worn by too many
lonely hours of Jig-a-jig in the caves of tora bora.
THERE, there , it’s moving , like a burning freight train
sliding it’s way to the tunnel mouth. Holy crap, this
is getting rough, my butt is scorching the tops of my
slippers. Oh, oh try and remember what did you have first?
the Habenero stuffed peppers? the dattle pepper cassarole,
Suddenly a thin stream of pure fire seemed to fliker
a the opening of his lower tract, growing hotter and
more intence the way was opened for the sheeps eyes which
came ejecting out with quite a lot of pressure behind
each one, electing a deep moan from Osama, as the flaming
orb dropped down the bore hole. Now another one,burning
searing itself into his memory oozed out and went falling
down the hole, the added oxygen causing it to burst forth
and raise the temp by hundreds of degrees. Now two, now
three, now FOUR at a time concussed his shaking vent.
It was better now, almost like when he and his friend
Barak made Jigajig in the dark tunnels of tora bora.
Shackly Osama lit a match to try and read the name plate
on the bore hole he was dropping all this down, as the
match went out he just had time to read, UXO disposal NO
The ground began to rumble, Osama knew he’d never own
that nice compound in Pakistan now. but it was good
he would die in jihad, uuuurp he said as one of the
flaming eyeballs came up the other way...
Damn, that is genius tet68. I was laughing the whole way through.
I have some suggestions.
Hint: Delivery would be by Predator drone.
DEFUND totalitarian/socialist/anti-freedom collectives.
Brilliant & funny! Thanks tet68! FREEPER talent BUMP!
