September 11 is always a day in which the world remembers the horrific attack on the World Trade Center and how people lost their loved ones in this mind blowing and senseless attack.

14 years after, on the anniversary of 9/11 an incident occurred and to Analysts, political commentators or enthusiast, conspiracy theory thinkers and deep thinkers would question what happened on September 11, 2015, 14 years after the incidence of the world trade center where Bin Laden was accused of masterminding.

A crane fell on Muslims who were performing Tawaf, a religious act of worship in Islam. Over a hundred people died in that incident and the crane is said to be owned by the Bin Laden construction company which is believed to be the second biggest construction company in the world. 

Is it just a coincidence that a crane owned by Bin Laden Family fell and killed people in the holiest of places on the anniversary of the 9/11 attack? Political commentators will analyse and speculate about this incident for years.

May God grant the families who lost loved ones the strength to bear the loss. My hope is for this world to experience world peace. Tragedies and various violent acts only bring tears.
