KARACHI: Muttahaida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Farooq Sattar on Sunday said that Dr Aafia Siddiqui is innocent and demanded that the United States release her.
Sattar was speaking to the media after visiting Dr Aafia's house. He said that the MQM strongly condemned the sentencing of Dr Aafia and that they will leave 'no stone unturned' to bring her back. He also said that the pain that Dr Aafia has gone through is also felt by the nation and not her family.
He demanded that the Obama administration should take back the case and release her immediately.
Earlier, MQM Chief Altaf Hussain had called on the US to withdraw the sentence and release Dr Aafia.
Various voices in Pakistan have criticised and sympathised with Dr Aafia since the sentence.
