In 2011, the assassination of a former world-famous terrorist by ex-President Barack Obama brought the entire world to a halt. Many people couldn't believe the US government had finally caught the terrorist who had killed so many people around the world.
The Team Six, a special group of the United States Special Forces, targeted the Al Qaeda leader. Although the news was frightening at first, many people grew to believe that the man had been killed by a bullet.
The job was finished quickly, and the man was taken down and buried as soon as possible. It appeared that burying his remains was not difficult and that all of the appropriate procedures had been completed.
His body was reportedly buried in an Arabian sea, according to reports. Many people would take this to mean that his body was tossed into the water. What's the difference between being buried in the sea and having your body buried in the sea, I'm not sure. It's possible that the difference is razor-thin.
In the sense that dead are generally buried in graves on land, this act is unusual. Another thing you probably don't realize is how rapidly they finished it, in less than 24 hours.
According to speculations, burying Osama Bin Laden on land may have resulted in his burial becoming a point of dispute for people wishing to own his bones in some way.
According to one US official, no country would have accepted the bones of someone with such a heinous criminal record when it comes to mass executions, thus the US chose to bury the body at sea.
Aside from that, there was concern that Osama Bin Laden's tomb might be turned into an Islamist shrine, despite the Islamic religion's prohibition. There was concern that because he was so well-liked, this would continue even after he died.
Burying a person in the sea is uncommon, whether in Islam or any other religion, although it is authorized in Islam under certain conditions, such as when the body is in risk of being unearthed or when a person dies on a ship voyage and will take time to reach land for burial.
The body, according to reports, was disposed of in line with Islamic practice. Many people thought he was buried in the sea because he wasn't Bin Laden, but DNA tests revealed otherwise.
