The Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was shot dead by the commandos of the United States of America in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, 2011. Special prayers for the peace of the mass murderer’s soul were held in Kolkata at the Tipu Sultan mosque by Maulana Nurur Rehman Barkati and in Chennnai at the Makkah Masjid in Anna Salai by Maulana Shamsudeen Qasimi.

He said, “America killed him inhumanly and left his body in the sea without performing Janazah. So we conducted Janazah for him.” There were reportedly placards at the prayer meet reading “Disrespect to Holy Quran is intolerable”.
