Fauzia sees light at the end of the tunnel

Ppi/express May 26, 2010

KARACHI: Dr Fauzia Siddiqui, the sister Dr Aafia Siddiqui, has welcomed the demand of summoning the US ambassador over the detention of her sister.

The Senate Standing Committee on Interior demanded that US ambassador Anne W Patterson be summoned over the inhuman detention of the scientist, on Wednesday.

Talking to PPI, Dr Fauzia said Chairman Committee Senator Talha Mahmood has asked the Foreign Office to summon the US Ambassador in Pakistan before the standing committee to discuss the Aafia Case, adding that the foreign office would also be responsible to report to the state within two weeks on this issue.

"The US government has already handed people convicted by its courts to nine different countries. They include those convicted for death penalty", she claimed.

She said that the Senate Standing Committee would ask the US envoy for the reparation and release of Dr Afia Siddiqui. It could be the turning point in Dr Aafia case, she said, adding that the daring step of Senator Talha Mahmood would prove a new milestone in Pakistan history.


someone | 14 years ago | Reply No, the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train. Real men, people who fear no one but God, men who care not for what the tyrants say, will free her. No one will be able to harm our sister after that. And then those same men will punish her jailers. Also, these same men will take revenge for ALL the raped, jailed, tortured, murdered and maimed sisters of the ummah who were victimized by american, jewish and hindu.
