On Thursday, however, his statement that Osama bin Laden was a ‘shaheed’ (martyr) shocked many. He made that statement on the floor of Pakistan’s parliament. While discussing events that embarrassed Pakistan, he said the Americans who entered Pakistan’s airspace and killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. He then quickly corrected ‘maar diya’ (killed) to ‘shaheed kar diya’ (martyred).
That he said it in the National Assembly raised many eyebrows.
Words as said by Imran Khan
“Humne War on Terror main US ka saath diya aur jo jillat uthani padi mere mulaq ko…main nahi samajhta ki kabhi bhi koi mulq War on Terror main saath de aur wo bura bhala bhi humain kahen. (US) Afghanistan main kamiyab na hua toh uske liye bhi Pakistan jimmedar hai. Openly. Hamara Pakistan ke liye do bahut hi sharminda vakiya hue…jo hum kabhi bhula nahi sakte…Ek hua ji Osama bin Laden ko Americans ne Abbottabad main maar diya…shaheed kar diya. Uske baad kya hua? Sari duniya ne hume gaaliyan di…bura bhala humain kaha. Yaani hamara ally hamare mulaq main aake maar raha hai kisi ko aur hamain hi nahi bata raha. 70,000 Pakistani mar chuke hain unki jang ke liye. Yani itni jyada jillat.”

Uttarakhand Power Plant Damaged After The Glacier Burst
Uttarakhand: A glacial burst in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand triggered an avalanche and massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday morning, forcing the emergency evacuation of thousands from surrounding areas, and damaging houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.
Disaster response and management teams have been deployed to conduct search-and-rescue and relief operations. Around 100 to 150 people may have been killed, Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Om Prakash told news agency ANI. Authorities fear hundreds more may still be stuck. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Assam to campaign for Assembly polls, tweeted: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety.”
Disaster management teams have been mobilized and hundreds of ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) have been rushed for rescue operations.
SN Pradhan, chief of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), said that teams from the relief force have been moved for search-and-rescue and relief operations in Uttarakhand where a glacial burst has triggered an avalanche. “The glacial burst has taken out a bridge constructed by the Border Road Organisation. Also in the higher reaches, the Rishiganga hydel project also has been damaged,” he said.
