Pakistan school names library after Osama bin Laden

  • Memorial libraries are usually named after some historical figure, who could be a deep-pocketed donor or even an international terrorist. Islamabad honored Osama bin Laden by renaming a prominent seminary for girls. 

    "He is our hero," Taliban affiliated Red Mosque cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz said. "We do not care if the world calls him a terrorist."

    The AP notes that there aren't any photos or books of bin Laden inside the library since it only carries religious books. This is the first public remembrance of the terrorist in the nation in recent history.
