Dr. Aafia Siddiqui request along with a message for Prime Minister Imran Khan
A Pakistani neuroscientist Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving her 86 years sentence in New York sent a message through Pakistan’s Consul General saying “I want to get out of prison, by imprisonment in the US is illegal as I was kidnapped and taken to the US”.
Aafia has been in prison since 2010 after the verdict of New York court.
She asked the Consul General to convey her message to Imran Khan when she paid her a visit on October 9, 2018.
“Imran Khan had supported me in the past also,” Siddiqui said in a message. “I have always considered him one of my biggest heroes and wish to see him as the Khalifa of all Muslims.”
She also advised her hero to “be careful of the munafiq (hypocrites) around him”.
New York court sentenced Dr. Siddiqui to 86 years in prison on Sept 23, 2010.
Dr. Siddiqui’s family claimed that she was kidnapped in Pakistan and then transferred to the US custody. But on the other hand, both the US and Pakistani officials, says that she was arrested in Afghanistan.
Dr. Siddiqui, an MIT graduate, allegedly went missing for five years before she was discovered in Afghanistan. It is believed that she snatched a gun during an interrogation in Afghanistan and tried to shoot a US soldier. Also, she has been accused of murder and assault of US personnel. The 46 years old was also accused of working for Al Qaeda.
Well, Imran Khan hasn’t spoken about it yet.
