Right activists wish to use Osama compound to promote peace

A British animal rights organization has asked the Pakistani government for permission to promote peace at the compound where al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed last month, the organization announced Thursday, DPA reported.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said they had written to President Asif Ali Zardari, asking him to let them paint the compound walls with an advertisement reading, "Give Peas a Chance - Go Vegan" and "Nonviolence begins on your plate."

"The art work will feature images of peas arranged to represent different religious symbols, including the Christian cross, the Muslim star and crescent, the Hindu Aum, and the Jewish Star of David," said PETA president Ingrid Newkirk.

PETA campaigns against the slaughter of animals for food and advocates the use of alternative food sources in plants.

Bin Laden's vast compound in Pakistan's northwestern city of Abbottabad has attracted huge media attention since May 2 when US commandoes stormed it, killing the al-Qaeda chief.

The Pakistani government gave the media brief access to the compound, located a few hundred meters from a military academy, before sealing off the site in mid-May with hundreds of troops and policemen.

According to some media, Officials have said the whole compound will be demolished once it has been fully searched, to avoid it becoming a Bin Laden shrine.
