binApr 19, (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Facebook page in the name of Osama bin Laden was shut down yesterday after it gathered fans numbering almost a thousand, who came over to visit the page in order to listen to the speeches of the extremist leaders of the Al-Qaeda group. The recordings that were available in the Facebook page were produced by the Al-Sahab Media Group, which is affiliated with the Al-Qaeda. However, it is not yet certain as to who was or were responsible for having put up the page. It is being speculated that it might be any number of persons, and the identity of the person or the group is almost impossible to verify.

According to one of the spokespersons of the community networking site, it is possible that the page had been set up by one or some of the followers of Osama bin Laden residing abroad. The spokesperson admitted that it is not very likely that the page has any direct link to the terrorist organization at all. In fact, it is also being speculated that the page was simple a fake one created by someone interested in creating pages with the name of someone famous or notorious.

It has not been disclosed by Facebook whether there would be an investigation on those people who had signed up as fans of the page. It is not also known whether there would be any attempt to find out who had created the page. It is being assumed that the page most likely did not have any link to the terrorist organization at all, and was just one of those fake pages that garner a lot of attention, but ultimately get pulled down.
