All that is said and done, these people undoubtedly ruled the world in different spheres – some were great rulers, some represented revolt and terror, and some were great visionaries.

Osama bin Laden



Osama’s death came as a pleasant surprise in the morning of May 2, 2011 as the United States Navy SEALs shot down the symbol of terrorism, in an operation code named as ‘Neptune Spear.’ Affirming the common belief that Laden was hiding in Pakistan and once again questioning the countries commitment to fight terrorism, the U.S. Special Forces hunted down the Al-Qaeda supremo in Abbottabad, Northern Pakistan. However, the Government of Pakistan denied the media reports suggesting that its military sheltered the most wanted terrorist and termed them ‘baseless speculations’. Saudi Arabian-born Osama is the founder of Islamic militant group, al-Qaeda, which is responsible for the September 11 attack on World Trade Center in 2001, U.S. embassy bombings in 1998, Bali bombings in 2002 and many other mass-causality attacks around the globe. Osama was buried in the sea shortly after his death and al-Qaeda acknowledge its leader’s death on May 6, 2011.
