What about Aafia Siddiqui?

She didn’t even kill anyone, unlike Mr Davis, who shot dead two Pakistanis.

KARACHI: All of us, in the Raymond Davis affair, seem to have lost sight of Dr Aafia Siddiqui. She has been sentenced to over 80 years in prison and she didn’t even kill anyone, unlike Mr Davis, who shot dead two Pakistanis. The Davis case should be a wakeup call for the Pakistani government and the people of Pakistan to insist that Dr Siddiqui be released by the US.

Arshad Alvi | 10 years ago | Reply Wakeup!!!!! Yes we will have to do so. What to talk of difficult cases like Dr Aafia and Davis, we have not been able to decide the case of two brothers killed in the most brutal and inhuman way in SIalkot. I believe no foreign agency of such like complications are involvde in that case at least. THEN WHY HAVE OUR COURTS NOT BEEN ABLE TO PUNISH THE CULPRITS ?????? have our nedia people and politicians forgotten that case as a new and more sensational story is now available to run the news channel / fill up the spaces in News Papers!!!!!!! What are out priorities???????? Money only by running the news channels by telling sensational storeys or achievement of real justice????? That's why someone said for us "They can sell their....... for $20" very sad.
