IT WAS surprising that the US had not been able to track down Osama Bin Laden, despite the fact that it had kept an eye on every inch of the globe through satellites, said Samajwadi Party MP Atique Ahmad.

IT WAS surprising that the US had not been able to track down Osama Bin Laden, despite the fact that it had kept an eye on every inch of the globe through satellites, said Samajwadi Party MP Atique Ahmad.

He was speaking to partymen at the Collectorate in protest against the UPA Government’s vote against Iran.

Accusing the United States of razing the twin towers of the World Trade Centre to the ground on its own land, he said, by doing so, it created an excuse for attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan and now it had started eying Iran in a bid to capture oil wells.

He said his party would be forced to think in terms of withdrawing support to the UPA Government, if it failed to reverse its stand on Iran.

Lashing out at the West for its recent attempt to show disrespect to Prophet Mohammad by publishing objectionable cartoons, he dubbed the act premeditated an attempt to incite Muslims in a bid sully their image.

Others who also spoke on the same issue included MP Shailendra Kumar, district party president Jokhu Lal Yadav and others.
