A years-long Pakistani land dispute pitting the military against the civilian government is culminating in one seemingly simple question: Should the field where Osama Bin Laden’s compound once stood be turned into a playground, or a graveyard?

The local cantonment administration, largely controlled by the military, is pushing for the graveyard. They seek to rectify “a serious shortage of graveyards in the area,” said Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, a cantonment administration official, according to The Times in London.

The government, rather, wants a playground. Mushtaq Ghani, the Information Minister of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial government told The Times, “You can’t develop a cemetery in the middle of houses.”
