Text of Obama's speech announcing Osama's killing

Islamabad: "I don't think it's genuine" said one on Facebook. "Why do I get the sinking feeling that all hell is about to break loose in Pakistan," tweeted another. Many in Pakistan reacted with disbelief Monday to news of Osama bin Laden's death, while some were angry with the US for killing him on Pakistani soil.

Many Pakistanis questioned the timing of the operation, citing that the US presidential elections were due. Others said the death of bin Laden need not necessarily mean the end of terrorism in their own country.

The Al Qaeda leader was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, ending a 10-year manhunt that intensified with the traumatic Sep 11, 2001 terror attack. US President Barack Obama announced the news of his death.

Commenting on TV presenter Nadeem Malik's post on Facebook, Faysal Raza, an alumni of Bahria University in Islamabad, wrote: "I think sooo this News is not genuine. US election will be held next year. This News will help Obama to win election. Nothing else."

Nabiha Chauhdry from Karachi: (Breaking News) Tehreek e Taliban says the reports of Osama bin Laden's death are false. So Osama Bin Laden killed? By US forces operation inside Pakistan, Abbotabad (near 'Eezlamabad'). Would the War on Terror be over now? The news should read: 'US elections near, Pakistan elections near, ruling parties' popularities on ever low; NOW-Osama bin Laden dead!"

Rehan Awan from Peshawar wrote: "Thank you Mr. President but we need to see the evidence, dead body and where this operation took place and who participated in this operation."

Nadeem Khan: "It happened in Pakistan and announced by American President? Waah!"

Some are fearing the situation will worsen after the Killing of Osama.

"Hahaha... Ab halaat kharab honge... Aur OSAMA BIN LADEN (SHAHEED) ki qurbania rang laayain gi... Insha Allah," Haider Khan from Karachi expressed his fears.

Lahore-based teacher-writer Nabiha Meher Shaikh too anticipates the worst. He wrote: "Why do I get the sinking feeling that all hell is about to break loose in Pakistan?"

Syed Ali Abbas Zaidi, an aeronautical engineer in Islamabad, tweeted: "The compound in which Osama Bin Laden was staying was built in 2005, how many times Kayani, Pasha Gillani came within 01 km visiting PMA."

Mahnoor Yawar from Lahore: "Saying Osama's death is the end of terrorism is like saying killing Seacrest will end reality television."

Chicago-based anonymous Pakistani blogger, Five rupees, wrote: Congrats Abbottabad, people now know about you.
