Bahawalpur Pakistan, Osama Nazir ( Urdu: عسما نزير) is accused of involvement with several attacks against Christianchurches in Murreeand Taxila, as well as an attempt on President Musharraf's life.
In July 2004, Pakistani forces claimed to have killed Nazir along with six others, in an attack - though he was later arrested that November by Pakistani forces that stormed the
Madressah Fatehul Quran Al Arabiaattached to Jamia Zikriya Mosquein Faisalabad. Originally his wife and two young daughters had also been arrested, though they were released several days later, when US officials also requested that Pakistan turn Nazir over, so he could be tried for a 2002 attack that left five dead, including two Americans.
