A leading Muslim in the UK has said Osama bin Laden should have been put up for trial for the September 11 attacks instead of being killed.
Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of UK Muslim thinktank the Ramadhan Foundation, said: "Osama bin Laden has been responsible for preaching hatred and using terrorism to kill innocent people around the world and it would have been more suitable for him to be captured alive and put on trial in an international court for the crimes he has committed.
“Victims of terrorism by al-Qaida should have had the chance to see him brought to justice.
“Al-Qaida is a murderous organisation that runs totally against Islam. Their action to use terrorism around the world is not sanctioned by our faith, which promotes peace and protecting human life.
“Every human should be held responsible for their actions in a court of law and Osama bin Laden is no different.
“There will be a need for calm and extra vigilance and that time is now. Despite seeing no justice for the victims in this world as Muslims we believe that now these crimes will be left to Allah to judge.”
