After Pakistanis claimed Usman Khan did not have Pakistani origin, London Bridge terrorist’s body flown to Islamabad

Officials at Islamabad International Airport confirmed that the 28-year-old Jihadist's body had been flown out on Thursday afternoon and arrived in Pakistan on Friday morning

Pakistan has forever been on a denial mode that they have ever bred Jihadis on their soil. After similar bruhaha over the London Bridge Jihadi, Usman Khan’s origin by several infuriated Pakistanis, the terrorist’s body was ultimately flown from London to Islamabad, Pakistan, to be buried in his home town on December 6.

Khan’s body was released by the City of London coroner and flown to Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, by his family in the early hours of Friday. It was then transported to the rural village of Kajlani in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, where he was quietly buried in an Islamic funeral later at night.

Officials at Islamabad International Airport confirmed that the 28-year-old Jihadist’s body had been flown out on Thursday afternoon and arrived in Pakistan on Friday morning.

The Pakistani terrorist who had stabbed multiple people, killing two Cambridge graduates, while armed with two kitchen knives and wearing a fake suicide vest had been shot dead by the London police.

Usman Khan had gone on a stabbing rampage just before 2 PM (1400 GMT) near the London Bridge, an area that had seen a deadly terrorist attack just two years ago.

Meanwhile, Pakistanis who are embarrassed by the fact that any terror incident that happens anywhere across the globe inevitably finds its roots to Pakistan had come down heavily on the Pakistani newspaper ‘The Dawn’ for reporting that the accused involved in the London Bridge attack had Pakistani origins.

Hundreds of angry Pakistanis had swelled around the Pakistani newspaper’s office premises, blocking the entry and the exit on December 3.

The disgruntled Pakistanis contended that the Dawn Newspaper has incorrectly claimed that the perpetrator of the London Bridge attack had Pakistani roots. Many on Twitter too hailed the attack on the Dawn claiming that Usman had no connection with Pakistan and the newspaper was simply besmirching the reputation of the country by linking the London Bridge attacker with Pakistan.

According to the report published in the Dawn, Khan is a British citizen born in the UK and of Pakistani origin. He left school with no qualifications after spending part of his late teens in Pakistan, where he lived with his mother when she became ill. After returning to the UK, he partook in promulgating extremism on the Internet and garnered a significant following.

However, this intricate detail was lost on indignant Pakistanis who claimed that since Usman was born and brought up in England, he cannot have Pakistani origins.
