PM Imran Khan Called Osama Bin Laden A “Shaheed” And People Are Shocked

By Noor | 25 Jun, 2020

Imran Khan called Osama Bin Laden a shaheed… whoops?

Our beloved PM always ends up making headlines because of his famous slip of tongues. Previously, he had messed up some geographical concepts and ended up stating that Japan and Germany share a border. He once once attributed a Bengali poet’s quote to Khalil Jibran. Well, it looks like that another mix-up by Khan sahib has just caught the attention of many. Let us fill in you with the details of it.

While addressing members of the National Assembly today (without a mask, mind you), Prime Minister Imran Khan referred to Osama Bin Laden as shaheed

While shedding some light on the war of terrorism and the strained Pak-US ties, PM called Osama Bin Laden a martyr. In his own words, “Osama Bin Laden ko Americans nay Abbottabad main aa kay maar diya,shaheed kar diya.”

It has become the top topic of conversation on Pakistani social media because of the sheer shock factor of the statement

A few argued that it wasn’t a mere slip of tongue and Imran Khan needs to apologize for this comment about Osama Bin Laden


They also shared an old clip from 2016 to prove their point about PM Imran Khan and his stance on Osama Bin Laden

They mentioned that the PM has a ‘different’ stance on the laden issue and it can not be classified as a mere slip of tongue.
