A lot has been said and written about the concerned topic yet when Vanya asked me to pen down an article on the same topic I couldn’t resist her spark and so finally succumbed to her pressure.
It may seem easy to pen down an article on something eminent but the mere possibility of susceptible readers makes it difficult. The topic most talk about remain afresh into the minds of people and so anything said or done with respect to those topics are sure to get into an intellectual comparison which undoubtedly increases the pressure on a writer, in this case me, manifold.
Barack Hussein Obama II, or simply Obama, is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama, a law graduate is known for his civil right work he did in Chicago. Obama’s positive and combatant attitude led him to the post of President after losing the same earlier. He once said the three men he admired the most were Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King.
Being an excellent orator he knows the importance of 2W’s approach of good communication i.e. what and when to speak. It seems like other American Presidents Obama too has this peculiar habit of feeling that the world is not a perfect place to live which makes him force his so called idealistic goals and vision on the less perfect countries, often leading to disagreement and discord. Obama seem to be a sensitive man and take on things as a matter of pride which compelled him to finally trace, seize and kill Osama.
Obama and Osama names have much the same spelling, their undue desire to rule the world and their importance in the history classes makes them none but all similar to each other. Not only this but also several other similarities make them look-a-like. Few of their similarities were their never ending desire to succeed.
Osama, like Obama, was a great orator and knows exactly how to play with his words which made him a messiah of Islamic world and a saviour of Islam religion in general. He was deeply engrossed in his cause that the path he choose mattered less for him.
Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, or simply Osama, was the founder of the dreaded terrorist organization the Al-Qaeda. He wasn’t like the other terrorists and was much educated (it never means that I keep record of other terrorists’ educational background). He studied economics and business and even some reports suggest that he earned a degree in civil engineering and public administration. Like Obama, Osama was also inclined in charitable work from his university days and could be easily located interpreting the Quran and jihad in the college campus.
Both Obama and Osama considered each other as hardliner; whilst former accused the latter as misinterpreting Islam, the latter charged the former with conspiracy theory of eliminating Muslims, looting Muslim wealth and irreverence towards the Islam religion.
The only difference in them seems to be the iconic use of religion in Osama’s life. One’s the dearest of all in fight against the Russians dramatically became the most hated person for the Americans. Osama escaped the fury of two American presidents but yielded his breath to the motivational Obama presidential pledge where he promised to kill bin Laden and crush Al-Qaeda.
