Fact Check:

The woman in the picture is of Pakistani actress and model Saira Yusuf and has no link to Osama’s family. Furthermore Bin Laden does not have any daughter by the name of Zoya. The claim is FALSE.

On reverse search of the photo of the youth present in the viral post, Newsmeter found the same image on a blog called Film City Gorakhpur. The viral post is of Bhojpuri singer and actor Pradeep Maurya of Gorakhpur.

We also found that the picture shared in the viral post is of Pakistani actress and model Saira Yusuf. We found this mirror image in a Pakistani blog.
Saira was married to Shabroz Sabzwari. In May this year, Saira announced her separation from Sharoz Sabzwari on her Instagram.

Pakistani news website Dawn wrote about this news. Saira has nothing to do with terrorist Osama bin Laden.

No article mentions the daughter of Osama named Zoya and the image used here in the name of Zoya is of Pakistani actress and model Saira Yusuf. The news of the marriage of Osama bin Laden’s daughter Zoya and Bhojpuri singer Pradeep Maurya is fake.

Hence, the claim is FALSE.
