Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, May 2 (ANI): Asserting that strong action is needed to eliminate terrorism, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday termed the killing of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden as a matter of satisfaction.

“Laden was the face of global terrorism. His killing in Pakistan proves that Islamabad is the epicentre of terrorism,” BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here.

He further demanded that the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack attacks must be handed over to India and brought to justice.

The United States Government earlier today informed that Osama bin laden had been killed by security forces somewhere ‘deep inside Pakistan’.

Osama, 54, who created and funded the al Qaeda terror network, was accused of being behind a number of atrocities, including the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001.

He was suspected of playing large roles in the 1998 bombings of two US Embassies in Africa and the attack on the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden in October 2000. (ANI)
