Many Indian film celebrities took to social networking site Twitter after US President Obama announced the killing of the world’s most wanted terrorist. Here’s what some celebrities had to say:
Shekhar Kapur: Osama became the mythical dark force that the US rallied against. It no longer matters that he is/was dead or alive.
Mahesh Bhatt: While you ‘rightfully’ celebrate the killing of Osama bin Laden, who will hang the other terrorist George ‘Butcher’ Bush.
Ram Gopal Varma: Whatever the future of terrorism is after the death of Osama I am right now so very very very happy for America..3000 CHEERS!!!
Anupam Kher: Kudos to America’s intelligence and security forces for operation Bin Laden. It is important to pursue goals and then achieve them.
Kunal Kohli: The US does a covert operation in Pakistan, with their support and gets Osama, why can’t we get the Mumbai serial blast and 26/11 masterminds?
Anurag Basu: Bin Laden’s demise marks the beginning of the end of terrorism at a time when democracy is spreading throughout the Middle East.
Gul Panag: So finally after a decade, 9/11 has been avenged. The process having killed and maimed countless civilians. All to get one man.
Rahul Bose: Am hoping a sense of balance is maintained in the US at the Osama news. Closure is good, revenge isn’t.
Madhur Bhandarkar: Since Osama Bin Laden is dead, now may the World Rest in Peace (R.I.P).
Ranvir Shorey: May this begin an era of truth, peace and justice in the sub-continent. Oh, yes, and prosperity too, Pakistan.
Minissha Lamba: Osama is dead. Second term guaranteed for Obama. Trust Americans to steal the world’s attention away from the royal wedding. Interesting timing.
Pooja Bhatt: Refuse to celebrate Osama’s death. Next we’ll all be screaming ‘throw him to the lions’ on a daily basis! Lust for blood is perverse.
Vishal Dadlani: Inevitably, someone in the terror business will rise to fill Osama’s shoes, and have a point to prove. We should be scared, and prepared.
Celina Jaitley: Terror leader Osama bin laden is killed…if only Bin Laden used his mind for peace and love that Islam actually teaches.
Dino Morea: Strange feeling Osama still lurking somewhere, and planning something bigger.(IANS)
