ABBOTTABAD - Almost nine months after the May 2 operation, uncertainty still shrouds the future of OBL compound amid the reports that any decision regarding the sealed house would be arrived at in the light of the findings of a related commission probing Osama bin Laden’s hunt.Launched in the relatively remote area of Thanda Choha to take out Osama, the post-”Get Osama” operation scenario has seen an unending military siege around the hideout ever since the US Navy Seals left the spot after carrying out the stormy midnight operation in Abbottabad.  The vibes from military and civil leadership thereafter suggested unanimity between military and government for razing the compound to rubbles. None of these reports was ever verified officially. “It’s beyond our mandate to devise any line of action on OBL hideout. Our job is to follow the government instructions and ensure security accordingly,” District Police Officer (DPO) Abbottabad Karim Khan told this newspaper. “There has been much talk of bulldozing or demolishing the hideaway but such decisions are to be taken at the government level and not by the district police or administration.”The district police chief stood unaware of any development on the OBL compound issue. “Like I said, we’re not part of these kind of decisions.”Considering the sensitivities evolving Bin Laden’s hideout, the military and government stand on the same page to proceed vis-à-vis the OBL Commission findings on Abbottabad operation, informed officials believe.  The Commission’s recommendations, officials say, may include flattening the abandoned hideout. However, given that the OBL Commission has been conducting proceedings since months and has since not come up with any assessments, conclusions, recommendations or related findings, it is hard to infer when the process would enter the completion phase.Senior Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Bashir Bilour also sounded uncertain on the afore-written subject. “This is a very sensitive issue and any decision is to be taken considering all the pros and cons once every pertinent aspect is evaluated. I don’t know when this would happen but its better if things move towards logical conclusion,” he told The Nation.Later last year, reportedly, the plan to demolish Osama Bin Laden’s safe haven was in the offing and it was likely that the compound would be dashed to ground before May 2 this year. But with the rockets fired at Pakistan Military Academy (PMA), the “logical conclusion” appears afar. The PMA attack points to the ability of militants to hold retaliatory attacks that may recur if the OBL compound is razed.Last Friday, nine rockets were fired at the PMA from Nawashher mountain, just a few hundred yards away from the OBL compound. Three of them hit the military academy’s outer wall and damaged it. The incident took place only a day after the army chief visited Abbottabad on an official tour. No militant organisation or group has till date claimed responsibility.Irrespective of what the future may bring in store for them, the residents of Thanda Choha that once shared neighbourhood with the world’s most wanted militant are not comfortable with the irksome security measures. The military men stand guard in a round-the-clock vigil at points to and from the hideaway. The teams of plain clothed intelligence sleuths as well as local police have, however, been withdrawn.Over the last one year-and-half, Abbottabad came to the spotlight on five major occasions but for all the wrong reasons. In June 2009, a serving army officer had grabbed the land of Pakistan’s famous late artist Gulgee in Nathiagali, a hilly town of Abbottabad. This was unearthed by The Nation on June 9. Several sections of national media followed the issue. Colonel Habib Shah, the accused, had denied the allegations when contacted then. On April 12, 2010, 13 people were killed after being fired at by the police when masses had assembled in Abbottabad city to protest the renaming of North West Frontier Province (NWFP). On May 2 last year, the OBL operation took Pakistani and international media by storm. The killing of Aslam Awan, an alleged Al-Qaeda operative hailing from Abbottabad, in a drone strike on January 10 made headlines recently while the Friday’s attack at PMA is the last in line with the events involving Abbottabad.
