AIMMM Statement on Killing Of Osama Bin Laden By US Forces Coalition Forces must withdraw from Afghanistan USA must Dismantle Bases on Foreign Soil & revised its Policy of Political & Economical Hegemony USA Must Stop Blind Support to Israel & Help Creation of Palestinian State
New Delhi, 3 May, 2011: Mr. Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, has issued the following statement:

Osama bin Laden, the founder and ideologue of the Al-Qaida, the well organized terrorist movement, was killed on Sunday, 1 May 2011 by the US forces in his well-protected sanctuary in Abbotabad, Pakistan, thus closing a historic chapter with US avenging the killing of thousands of persons in 9/11. The AIMMM recalls that the USA justified its invasion of Afghanistan on the alleged refusal of the Taliban government to hand over Usama to the American authorities. With his death, there is no justification for the US and allied forces to operate in Afghanistan and add to the misery and the destitution of the Afghan people. The AIMMM, therefore, calls upon all the foreign forces to withdraw from Afghanistan and permit its people freely to decide their future and rebuild their war-ravaged country.

The AIMMM deliberately refrains from passing a judgment on the life and work of Osama Bin Laden but takes this opportunity to remind the US authorities that judged from repeated statements, his basic grievances against the US and the West related to the stationing of foreign forces in the Arabian Peninsula and America's blind support to Israel against the Palestinian people. The AIMMM feels that it is these two factors which have generated distrust, hostility and hatred towards the US and the West generally in the Arab & Muslim world which extends to the whole of the developing world who reject neo-imperialist occupation and neo-colonial exploitation of their non-renewable natural resources. The AIMMM feels that it is time for the USA to re-write its policy of political & economic hegemony and vacate its military bases on foreign soil and develop a more balanced and co-operative economic relationship.

In addition, the AIMMM calls upon the US and the West to stop their blind support to Israel in its continued & creeping occupation of Palestinian territories and appeals to their policy-makers to exercise their power and influence to secure the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and for the creation of a fully sovereign Palestinian state.
