GBNC expresses relief over Osama demise

Washington DC: Gilgit Baltistan National Congress (GBNC) has expressed relief over the just and long-due demise of Osama Bin Laden, suggesting that other prominent Al-Qaeda leaders are hidding in Pakistan.

In a meeting in Washington DC, the GBNC also expressed solidarity with the Americans, specially the victims of 9/11 attack. In a press note released after the meeting, Imtiaz Hussain, president of GBNC has said that Osama was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people; as he abused Islam to recruit Muslim youth and promoted hatred and extremism. Hussain emphasized that "Pakistan has failed to prove that 'the enemy of humanity was hiding in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan. It is now safe to suggest that other prominent Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders are also hiding in Pakistan".

Hussain said that the situation compels one to ponder that Pakistan is a lost cause and America should stop dumping billions of dollars of tax-payers money in Pakistan which is eventually redirected to the militants to kill American citizens. The international community will have to take a unified stance to counter Pakistan's selfish and myopic policy of protecting terrorist hubs in the country, even if that means attacking terror strongholds within the heart of Pakistan.

According to Hussain, the issue of China's decision to protect and shoulder the relationship between Pakistan's military establishment and the militants needs immediate review. He said that for several decades, Pakistan has remained a client state of China and this collaboration has led to the creation of tens of thousands of Frankenstein in the form of Al-Qaeda members and other militants. Further, it is with China's help that Pakistan's military dominates civilian political and economic organizations and undermines development of democratic institutions. The long term impact of such a nexus include unstable and underdeveloped South Asia, a cancerous Pakistan and permanently strained relations of China with India and the west.
