Well, he can always change his name when he gets older, can't he? IMO, the government had no right to do this. Sure, the kid may grow up to hate his name, but I mean...'Osama' is fairly common Islamic name, as is the name 'Bin Laden'. I can see where you're coming from, but this is just rediculous. My question is though...what are the parents like? I couldn't fathom how any reasonable person would name their child this, but perhaps they're just ordinary Muslims who wanted to give their child an ordinary Muslim name. But in any case, it's not the government's job to tell people what they can or can not name their children.
