Pakistan: Dr Afia Siddiqui

All Things Pakistan on Dr. Afia Siddiqui, wanted by FBI on alleged links with Al-Qaeda.

  • Saira Yousaf Rana

    This is very painful story.I appeal all muslims to stand and take a step to release Afia.This is too much.Americans speak of Human Rights then is Afia not a human being.How can you capture a person without proper investigation.

    Is this the “new World Order” which the so called only super power on earth wants to impose on earth? America is being led into eventual distruction by its short sighted leaders and their paid cronies all over the world .Might is right but not always. American people should revisit history of fallen empires and take lesson.

    Am american educated doctor with her three children disappears in March 2003 on her way from Karachi to Rawalpindi. Goverment officials assurances her family from that she will be back soon. 5 years passes. Rumors that she is handed over to Americans . Then media talks about a Pakistani woman in Bagram prinson in Afghanistan (prisoner # 650) and some speculations that it could Dr. Siddiqui. Pressure rises and July 17, 2008 American report capturing her in Ghazni and take her to US on the charges of assualting US soldiers. She appears wounded in the US court. Sounds like a nightmare! Which world are living in today?

    ISSUES: Disappearance; rape; violence against women; torture; right to liberty and security; arbitrary arrest and detention.

    Dear friends,
    We have received information that Dr. Afia Siddiqui, was arrested along with her three children by a F.B.I. & Pakistani intelligence agency in early 2003 and has been missing since then. American and Pakistani intelligence agencies confirmed that she had been arrested in connection with Al-Qaeda, thIS organization run by Osama Bin Laden. However, later both agencies denied that she had been arrested. Dr. Afia’s whereabouts remain unknown but it is suspected that she is being held in an American detention centre in Afganistan. PLZ Note your protest on this site.

    Inhuman attitude of a ‘so-called’ humans right champion!!! Kidnapping a lady and torturing her madly, is it not extremism??? Are there no laws for prisoners in America? Are dollars and bowing before Bush more important for our goovernment than the lives and self-respect of its citizens?

  • Abdul Qadeer

    It is a very painful condition that our sister are bearing unbelieveable cruelty but there is no one on the way like Muhammad Bin Qasim who have any kind of pain. All HUMAN RIGHTS organizations are sleeping like a crocodile. I want to say something to that BRAVE GIRL
