16 years of 9/11, an incident which shattered the USA

16 years of 9/11, an incident which shattered the USA”

Trump marked the 16th anniversary of the worst act of terrorism on US soil in a ceremony at the White House, with a moment of silence at 8:40 a.m., the time when a first airliner hijacked by al-Qaida terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center in NY.

Today marks the 16th anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks on our country on September 11, 2001.

The terrorist group Al Queda hijacked four aeroplanes and crashed them in different parts of the country in a co-ordinated series of attacks.

On September 11 2001, terrorists launched an attack on the United States, the likes of which had not been seen before then. The horrific attack killed 2,977 people in NY. The September 11 plot had been approved in advance by al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, who was shot to death by USA commandos in May 2011, during a raid on a walled compound in Pakistan where he was hiding.

According to a comprehensive report of the commission created to investigate the attacks, which was published in 2004, no one could determine how the hijackers got into the cockpits of the four commercial airliners that were hijacked.

The phrase "war on terror" was introduced after the 9/11 attacks, and what followed was a muscular military response by the Bush administration, in Afghanistan to get hold of the Bin Laden. This year we are facing a renewed threat of nuclear war with North Korea, whose rogue leader keeps launching missiles he claims are capable of reaching the United States and its territories, while also posing a menacing threat to our allies in South Korea and Japan. He was killed by American army on 2nd May 2011 in Pakistan.

Following 9/11 several Muslims condemned the vile act of terrorism in the United States and worldwide.
