Dr. Siddiqui’s sister, Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui (, says that Dr Siddiqui has now undergone a forced abortion while in detention and was hemorrhaging seriously.

According to her, she was “informed that Aafia was pregnant and was forced to undergo abortion, and hemorrhaged profusely on November 2. I was informed by a phone call in witness of prison warden”.

This message is yet to be confirmed by an independent and reliable source. She mailed this message to one of the most active news forums, SPN, which has created a panic in the country and people are worried about her health.

Dr Siddiqui is a citizen of Pakistan.

Besides her past activities, which are yet to be proved, the government has the responsibility for her care and welfare. The government of Pakistan and Pakistani embassy in USA should have immediately issued a statement clarifying the information about her forced pregnancy and abortion during custody and inform the people of Pakistan about her health.
