Is Qaeda's chief Osama Bin Laden really dead?
The world is still not able to forget the death of Osama Bin Laden, and some still think he will..

IT HAS been a year since US Navy SEALS shot dead the world’s most dreaded and wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden with a bounty of USD 25 million on his head in a raid on his Abbottabad house in Pakistan. Not only Americans, but also the world celebrated as US President Barack Obama announced his death in secretive operation. The US President marked the anniversary of Qaeda chief’s death with a surprise visit to Afghanistan, and signed a tactical pact with the country. However, Taliban attacked Kabul after Obama’s visit, and atleast six people were killed in suicide blasts.

“Yeah… we Americans had reason to celebrate his death as I still have not forgotten the 11th September 2001, when the series of bomb attack shook all of us. But, it surprised me lots that Pakistan was protecting him despite our country providing aid,” said Angela Soutjeck, Engineer from the US.

From 11th September 2001, the defination of terrorism has got changed but this terror group has not been able to recover from the US drone strikes despite the death of its many senior leaders. Osama was a Frankenstein’s monester for the world. In 1980s and 90s he influenced thousands of rich and poor Muslim youth across globe to use jihadi terrorism as a toll to correct injustices done to Islamic brotherhood by the non-Islamic forces.Today, he might not there but his philosophy of using weapons against  crusaders still motivates many Muslims.

“Is the Osama really dead?” asked Ms Soutjeck. He is, but Osamaism lives on. The world should keep in psyche that Osama’s terror groups had killed thousands of people across the world in name of Islamic philosphy; one man death does not mean that his philosphy is finished. The threat of Al-Queda and its associates are still very much there and radical still continue. The thousands of Osamas are still alive.

Al Qaeda’s new leader, Dr Ayman al-Zawahri who believed to be operating from a hideout in Pakistan has yet to show his appeal and his capability to tie up other groups together, but he has not been able to reinstate the assurance and inspiration of its central command and control. He should not underestimate as experts feel that the threat of nuclear terrorism is huge in his leadership as talibans are gradually taking control of Pakistan nuclear policies. He may carry out an attack with these weapons of mass destruction for holy war. There is might some weakening of al Qaeda as a global terroist organiszation but danger will remain high as intelligence agencies still haunting and identifying their operation who are distributed in different cells in globe, which are still operating.

“There is necessitate of stability in Af-Pak region, which are mile aways and talibans are getting training freely in these countries. I think world needs strategy to end Al-Qaeda,” says Roman Dung, a student of nuclear science.
