Why Osama Bin Laden's Body Was Thrown Into The Sea And Not Buried On Land

The killing of a former world-famous terrorist under the leadership of Ex-President Barack Obama in 2011 brought the entire world to a halt. Many people couldn't believe that the US government had finally been able to apprehend the terrorist who had killed lots people all over the world.

The Al Qaeda chief was attacked by Seal Team Six, a special squad of the United States Special Forces. The news was initially shocking, but as time passed, many people began to believe that the man had been truly killed by a bullet.

The task was completed quickly, and the man was hauled down and his burial was scheduled immediately. It appeared that there was no struggle in burying his body, and that all of the necessary arrangements had been made.

According to reports, his body was buried in an Arabian sea. Many people would interpret this as his body being thrown into the water. I'm not sure what the difference is between being buried in the sea and having your body buried in the sea. The difference could be razor-thin.

The act is uncommon in the sense that bodies are normally buried on land in grave. Another thing you probably aren't aware of is how quickly they completed it, in less than 24 hours.

According to rumors, burying Osama Bin Laden on land may have resulted in his grave becoming a source of contention for those who would have wished to possess the remains in some way.

According to one US official, it would have been unthinkable for any country to accept the remains of someone with such a significant criminal record when it comes to mass executions, thus the US decided to bury the body at sea.

Apart from that, there was concern that Osama Bin Laden's grave would be transformed into an Islamist shrine, despite the fact that the Islamic religion bans it. Because he was so well-liked, there was concern that this would continue even after he died.

Burying a person in the sea is not very common, whether in the Islamic religion or any other religion, but it is permitted in the Islamic religion under certain circumstances, such as when the body is in danger of being exhumed, or when a person dies on a ship voyage and it will take time for them to reach land for burial.

According to accounts, the body was disposed of in accordance with Islamic laws. Many people believed he was buried in the sea because he wasn't the real Bin Laden, but DNA tests proved otherwise.
