ISLAMABAD: Fauzia Siddiqui, sister of Dr Aafia Siddiqui has said that she was not satisfied with the government’s efforts in respect of the release of Pakistani Doctor from the United States.

She however praised the role of Interior Minister Rehman Malik for the  recovery of Aafia’s children. Expressing displeasure over the government’s efforts, she said she is  not sure whether or not the Pakistani government had raised  the matter with the  Obama administration.
