Dr Aafia Siddiqui Loses Her Appeal in New York Circuit Court of Appeals

 A US court on October 9, 2014,  allowed Dr Aafia Siddiqui to withdraw what could be the last appeal of her conviction on charges of attempted murder.

US District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan said that Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year sentence in a prison medical center in Texas, had ‘clearly and unequivocally’ stated her intent to end the appeal.

The Judge ordered the case closed and said that, even if the appeal had continued, he likely would have ruled against her. Siddiqui was represented at trial by an able team of five lawyers, Berman wrote. He declined to hold a hearing to question her further. In May, a new lawyer filed the appeal on Siddiqui’s behalf, but in July Siddiqui wrote a letter to Berman saying she had no faith in the US legal system and refused to participate in it.

A jury convicted Siddiqui in 2010 of attempting to shoot and kill a group of FBI agents, US soldiers and interpreters who were about to interrogate her in Ghazni, Afghanistan, for alleged links to al Qaeda.

On Nov 5, 2012, the Second US Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld the conviction and 86-year prison sentence of Dr Aafia Siddiqui, 40, for shooting at FBI agents and soldiers after her arrest in Afghanistan.

The Court said a lower court judge had not erred in allowing Aafia Siddiqui to testify in her own defence at trial and in allowing certain evidence against her.

Siddiqui was sentenced by US District Judge Richard Berman in September 2010. She was convicted by a New York federal jury of attempted murder, armed assault and other charges.

She was arrested in July 2008 by Afghan police, who said she was carrying 900 grams of sodium cyanide and crumpled notes referring to mass casualty attacks and New York landmarks.

The day after her arrest, she grabbed an M-4 rifle in her interrogation room and started shooting while yelling “death to America,” the trial jury heard.

No US agents or soldiers were hit, but Siddiqui was shot and wounded in response, according to US prosecutors.

Siddiqui’s defense lawyers, three of whom were paid by the Pakistani government, argued that their client had shot at the US officials in a panic and said the crime lacked any connection to terrorism.

On appeal, her attorneys challenged her conviction and sentence on many grounds. They said the judge improperly allowed jurors to consider the crumpled notes, and that the judge should never have allowed Siddiqui to decide whether to take the stand.

“The district court went to extraordinary lengths to ensure that Siddiqui understood the implications of testifying and had the capacity to testify,” the opinion said.

Dawn Cardi is one of  Siddiqui’s attorney.

The appeals court also sided with Berman in finding that Siddiqui had likely premeditated the attack, and that terrorism sentencing requirements were applicable because of her willingness to harm Americans.

The severity of her sentence raises yet another question in a case already riddled with them: what is Siddiqui really being held accountable for? Is life imprisonment justified for firing at a handful of FBI agents and soldiers, none of whom were killed or injured? These questions will only add to the air of murkiness that still surrounds the case.

The circumstances of her arrest and the nature of her crimes and the conduct of her trial remain problematic.

Where was Siddiqui between 2003 and 2008? Was she in Pakistani or American custody? If so, is the story of her arrest in 2008 real?

If she wanted to carry out a terrorist attack against America, and possessed plans to do so when captured, why was she only charged with the crime of firing a gun at American officials after her arrest?

The problem with all this uncertainty is that it creates the impression that US authorities are hiding something, which raises doubts about the fairness of Siddiqui’s custody and trial.

The Pakistani government is also not been particularly forthcoming about her whereabouts prior to 2008. After four years of unanswered questions and a sentence that seems out of proportion to the charges that have been framed, the Aafia case will continue to be a lightning rod for anti-American sentiment in Pakistan.

Earlier, on February 10, 2012, the court-appointed attorneys (who are paid by the US government, and Aafia has repeatedly attempted to fire), argued before a US Court of Appeals on behalf of Aafia Siddiqui, although against her will.

This mockery of justice is simply yet another example of how Aafia’s conviction of a crime she did not commit is virtually guaranteed in the US  justice system. Meanwhile, US agents who have perpetrated crimes against her, including kidnapping, torture, assault, and false imprisonment, have not been called to account.

It has now been years since agents of the US government shot Aafia Siddiqui and the beginning of the 11th year since she was abducted from Pakistan through a rendition operation locked up in Afghanistan, and forcibly removed from Afghanistan after an implausible shoot out, and illegally transferred her to the US.

So-called “high-profile” American criminal defense attorneys convinced the government of Pakistan to pay them millions of dollars, and then refused to resign when Aafia did not accept them. Neither did the Pakistani Government intervene. There can no longer be any doubt that Aafia will never receive justice in the US legal system.

Prosecutors called Siddiqui a cold-blooded radical who deserves life in prison.

Dr Siddiqui, who was present in the court, said that she wants no bloodshed over her conviction and sentence.

Reacting angrily to the sentence, her sister Dr. Fouzia Siddiqui at a press conference in Karachi, also addressed by her mother, blamed Pakistani rulers for the sentence. “The Pakistani rulers failed to honor their promises to bring Dr. Afia back to Pakistan.”

Aafia Siddiqui (born March 2, 1972, in Karachi, Pakistan) is an American-educated Pakistani cognitive neuroscientist was convicted after a jury trial in a U.S. federal court.

Pakistan’s Minister for Interior Rehman Malik who loves the media limelight said earlier the same day that all out efforts would be made to bring back Dr Siddique back to Pakistan. He said, “Dr. Afia is daughter of the nation and the government is utilizing all possible channels to bring her to back to Pakistan.” He added that a letter has been dispatched to US for the repatriation of Dr Siddiqui and that she should be deported to Pakistan under UN Convention for exchange of prisoners on humanitarian grounds. He said that President Zardari and PM Gilani have discussed the issue with all the delegations who had visited Pakistan from time to time.

The Minister said the government and opposition is also considering to bring joint resolution on the issue of Dr Siddiqui in the Parliament.

To a question he said the government had ordered an inquiry that from where Dr Siddiqui was lifted by US and even if she had been lifted from Afghanistan, under the international law, the country is bound to hand her over to the concerned country. He had nothing to say as to what was he doing for the past two and a half years since he became the Interior Minister, and as to why he has woken up now to order such an inquiry.

On Feb 3, 2010, Dr Aafia Siddiqui, the Pakistani neuroscientist, was found guilty of attempted murder charges on all seven counts listed in the complaint against her. She was tried on charges of trying to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan on July 28, 2008. After the jury left the room Aafia Siddiqui, who was inside, shouted:

“I know this is not the verdict of American people, I know where it is coming from.”

Elaine Sharp, a defence attorney, came out of the court room to tell reporters that Ms Siddiqui had asked her to request the people of Pakistan to remain calm and that she has faith in the Almighty.

According to an attorney familiar with the case, Ms Siddiqui’s own testimony against the advice of her attorney’s could have contributed to her conviction.

Pakistan voiced dismay over the verdict. “We are dismayed over the unexpected verdict of the jury in Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s case,” Pakistan’s Embassy in Washington said in a statement. “The government of Pakistan made intense diplomatic and legal efforts on her behalf and will consult the family of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and the team of defense lawyers to determine the future course of action,” it said. “The government will do all that is needed to provide justice to her as a Pakistani citizen,” it said.

On January 28, 2010, Dr Aafia Siddiqui being tried on charges she tried to kill Americans while she was detained in Afghanistan in 2008 had told a jury that she didn’t picked up a gun or fire it. ”This is crazy,” Aafia Siddiqui testified when cross-examined about the accusations at her attempted murder trial in Manhattan. ”It’s just ridiculous. … I never attempted murder, no way. It’s a heavy word.”

On Jan 14, 2010, a 16-member jury was chosen for Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s trial next week, as the Pakistani neuroscientist repeatedly interrupted questioning of potential jurors about the Sept 11 terrorist attacks.

On July 29, 2009, the US District Judge Richard M. Berman ruled that Dr Afia Siddiqui is competent to stand trial, and rejected the finding of a defense expert who concluded she was mentally ill. He based his ruling largely on the findings of three other experts who concluded the woman was faking mental illness to evade trial or improve the chance she would be returned to Pakistan. Her trial is set for Oct. 19.

The mental status of Dr Aafia Siddiqui was discussed in detail at an ‘in-camera’ proceeding in the hearing in the Court of US Federal Judge Richard Berman of the US District Court in Manhattan, New York on July 3. The hearing was then adjourned to July 6.

On June 10, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US met Afia Siddiqui in Texas. He promised to provide her with lawyers and counsellors of her choice. She was in good spirits, according to the Ambassador, but worried about the outcome of her case.

In the New York Jail six masked men tied her hands behind her back, stripped her naked and made her video film. While being taken back to her cell in a wheelchair a woman covered her with a blanket and begged the masked men not to humiliate Dr Afia Siddiqui.

In response to a question about the nature of security checks, Dr Afia said many a times she was stripped for security check in the New York jail and due to that humiliation she even stopped seeing her lawyer. She despised being stripped for security checks.

The Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Kashmir Affairs and Northern Areas met Dr Afia Siddiqui on October 7, 2008 at Carswell, Fort Worth, Texas, USA. The meeting was attended by Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed, Senator S M Zafar, Senator Muhammad Talha Mahmood, Senator Ms Saadia Abbasi, Iftikhar Ullah Babar, secretary committee/additional secretary and Faqir Syed Asif Hussain, consular, Pakistan embassy, Washington DC.

According to the report, she had been shifted to the Federal Medical Centre at Carswell, Texas for psychological tests and treatment. “She loses track of time and occasionally does not recall names and events. In the medical centre she was also being treated for some gynecological problem. Her gynecologist is a male, while psychologist is a female. She also informed of stone formation in one of her kidneys. According to her a different form of interrogation had begun at the centre but generally conditions were better compared to the New York jail. However, she alleged that she could be killed due to administration of regular injections for speeding her memory loss,” adds the report.

In reply to a question by Senator S M Zafar as to what message she has for the people in Pakistan, she requested that Pakistan should not hand over its citizens to the US for interrogation. She said that when she narrates her story, Pakistan should change its foreign policy. Dr Afia was against some clergy in Pakistan and alleged that they did not work for Pakistan.

Senator Saadia Abbasi asked if she wanted the delegation to seek permission for any of her family members to visit her in the US, Dr Afia responded that she did not want any member of her family to travel to the US, as she wanted to go back to Pakistan.

When asked by Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed whether she got married to Ammar Ali Balochi, as had been alleged by some US official quarters, she denied knowing Ammar Ali Balochi let alone being married to him. Ammar Ali Balochi is presently under detention at Guantanamo.

Dr Afia Siddiqui wanted to meet her children. Whenever she felt hopeless she wanted to die. Her brother, who lives in Houston, had talked to her only once. She wants to go back to her country and serve her people. Once back in Pakistan, she would teach Quran differently. She had fasted during the holy month of Ramazan.

She replied in the negative when Senator Mushahid Hussain asked whether the identity of the delegation was disclosed to her before the meeting. The members of the delegation encouraged her not to lose hope and think positively. Since she was frail, they also advised her to eat properly and take care of her health. Senator Mushahid told Dr Afia Siddique that in 2009 she would be in Pakistan. When the delegation said ‘Khuda Hafiz’ (goodbye) to Dr Afia, and was about to leave the meeting hall, tears rolled down her cheeks. Before leaving, Senator Mushahid Hussain told her that the entire Pakistani nation was solidly behind her. He said, “There is no charge of terrorism against you and we will seek your release and repatriation to Pakistan.”

Earlier, at the gate of the medical centre the delegation was received by a senior federal representative and security officials of the centre. The members of the delegation passed through security check similar to the one carried out at airports in the US and Europe. During the delegation’s meeting with Dr Afia, the US officials stayed at a distance and did not interrupt the meeting or impose any time restriction. The meeting lasted for two hours and 45 minutes. Dr Afia was brought to the meeting with respect and dignity, without any handcuffs and shackles.

The members informed Dr Afia that the delegation was sent by parliament, backed by the Government of Pakistan and that she had their full support. Dr Afia Siddiqui asked the delegation if America had attacked Pakistan, to which the members replied in the negative. Dr Afia said that all she remembered was that she was traveling in a taxi to her maternal uncle’s house and later found herself in Bagram, Afghanistan. The delegation asked why she had to leave her home to which she replied that at that time she did not enjoy good relations with her mother due to Afia’s divorce from her husband. She did not know where she was taken as she had problem recollecting and reconciling dates and places.

In Bagram, she was physically tortured, however, the Afghans did not humiliate her. Her three children, two sons and a daughter (Ahmad, Suleman and Maryam) were taken away. She was told that her children would be returned only if she confessed to meetings with certain people. She however did not disclose the names of the said people to the delegation. She agreed and feared that this forced confession could go against her in Pakistan. She also feared that her third child, a son by the name of Suleman, might have been killed. She alleged that at Bagram one of the interrogators was an Indian, who was her contemporary at MIT and was interested in her research work.

They explained her wounds by saying that a day after her arrest she took an M4 rife which belonged to US military personnel and fired two rounds at close range, which missed, and she had to be shot in the torso.

Due to a bullet wound and removal of one kidney, Dr. Afia Siddiqui health was in a serious condition when she was flown to the United States, but no medical assistance was provided to her whilst she was been in American custody in New York.

It is reported that she was brought to Pakistan in February 2008 to convince her to become a government witness against Khalid Shiek Mohammad – a high profile Al-Quaida leader and allegedly one of the masterminds of the September 11 attacks, who has been detained in Guantanamo Bay prison. As the case against Khalid Shiekh Mohammad is about to start the American forces need the assistance of Dr. Afia Siddiqui to convict him.

Dr. Afia was allegedly severely tortured in Karachi in order to secure her compliance.
She was produced before a New York court where she had to be assisted into the hearing. It is reported that her health was in a serious condition at the time due to the bullet wound.
According to the information received from a local human rights organisation in Pakistan, her kidney was removed while she was in custody in the United States. A closer look at the picture shows evidence of the years of physical abuse; there are dark circles under her eyes, and her nose was apparently broken at some stage and has been badly set. It is a picture of a severely dehydrated person in desperate need of medical attention.

In addition, although one son is with Dr. Afia but the strong whereabouts of her two other children still remain unknown. Her two children who remain missing were not with her when she was shifted to a governor’s house in Afghanistan, for a brief stop over prior to her journey to New York, under heavy security. When she was being taken aboard a special plane there was no female security officer to provide support or assistance to her, and it was reported she fell down at least two times.

On August 16, the US envoy to Pakistan made a public statement saying that the US had no “definitive knowledge” of the whereabouts of Aafia’s children but only a few days later the Afghan authorities revealed that an 11-year-old boy had also been “arrested” with Aafia and this boy was then repatriated to be received byAafia’s family as her eldest son.

One could smell a rat here: a person of such prominence as US envoy is unlikely to risk a misleading statement unless the stakes are really high. Aafia’s son, finally repatriated by Afghan authorities, cannot recall much and is having nightmares. Did the authorities deny knowledge of his whereabouts initially because at that time they were brainwashing him and were still unsure that it would work?

It seems as if the US authorities knew that this story won’t stand a test in the court and their real strategy was to buy time for declaring Aafia mentally unfit or perhaps even to induce mental disorder while in custody.

The story narrated about this alleged episode is not plausible, and contradictions self-evident. Yet Aafia has been suffering pain and humiliation in US prison for more than two months now. There are fears that she is now being brainwashed in order to render her incapable of giving evidence against any atrocities that might have been committed against her.

Three Anomalies in the Trial

Basically: (a) victim has become the accused; (b) allegations are not being addressed in proper order; and (c) allegations against US authorities by human rights groups and concerned citizens are going un-addressed.

Her children were not mentioned by FO, but President Musharraf later dropped hint in his autobiography that “arresting” minors and even infant children of accused was part of tactics beingused in the US War Against Terror.

Victim has Become the Accused

Those who say that they hope to get justice from US legal system in this case are overlooking the fact that the trial is not being held to provide justice to Aafia. It is being held against her.

Allegations not Addressed in Proper Order

The case involves three allegations, not one. These need to be addressed in the order in which they appeared:

The FBI’s declaration that it needed Dr. Aafia Siddiqui for interrogation (2003).

Allegations raised by human rights organizations and PakistanTehrik-i-Insaf that Aafia Siddiqui was being illegally detained, raped andtortured by US authorities (with possible compliance of Pakistani authorities) for five years, and that her three minor children were inillegal detention. July 6, 2008 is the high water mark for this allegation.

Allegation raised by US authorities against Dr Siddiqui that she tried to assassinate US army personnel on July 18, 2008. This allegation was brought forth on August 4, 2008.

The first of these has not been legally pursued by authorities even after they admitted having custody of Aafia. Hence it may be considered as dropped.

The second allegation, which is against US authorities, has never been answered seriously except for a flat rebuttal in inappropriate and condescending tone (consider the US envoy’s open letter of August 16).

Now the third allegation is being addressed in a court of law without addressing the second. This leads to great confusion. The victim has been given into the custody of the party accused of committing offenses against her, and mandate is given to them to further curtail her liberties as a “high security risk”.

Let’s understand: it’s not as if US Government said that it would rather like to keep Aafia in a rehabilitation center in America for treatment of torments suffered by her during five-year-long illegal detention. The victim is now in custody of the party accused of committing the following atrocities against her:

  • Abduction and illegal detention of the victim
  • Abduction and illegal detention of the victim’s minor children
  • Attempt of coercing the victim to sign false evidence
  • Threatening the victim with murder of her children
  • Sexual abuse, rape and torture
  • Attempted brainwashing
  • Possibly, murder of two of the victim’s minor children

The first step should have been to ensure that the party accused of committing these offenses didn’t have any further access to her with malevolent intent. The opposite has happened.

In the case of rape, the term “victim” is applied to the aggrieved party even before her case is proven true in a court.

Aafia’s transfer from military to civil authorities doesn’t ensure that her abusers have lost influence: responding to journalists’ question about why they didn’t seek bail for Aafia, her lawyer answered, “There’s more in this case than meets the eye.”

What’s Going Wrong Now

Following incidents which can be seen as injustice or malpractice have occurred after August 6, when Aafia was first presented in New York:

  • Victim was remanded on implausible charges
  • Bail was not even sought by her lawyers
  • US envoy gave a questionable statement about victim’s children
  • It’s possible that the victim’s eldest son was brainwashed before beinghanded over by Afghan authorities
  • Motion to establish the victim as mentally unfit to stand trial, if accepted,
  • will disqualify her from giving evidence later against her abusers
  • At Carswell, the victim can be at risk of being brainwashed or rendered incapable of providing evidence.

Can She Get Justice from US Legal System?

That question will arise only after a case is brought up to seek justice for her. The current trial has been registered against the victim and not against her abusers.

Unfounded speculation is bad but some speculation is required for arriving anywhere in legal matters. Here we are forced to choose between two options:

either the story about Aafia’s alleged arrest and shooting as told by the DOJ is true, or it is false.

The story is not likely to be true. Consider this passage from rejoinder to US envoy’s letter by Kamran Shafi, journalist and former trainer in small arms:

By the way Excellency, if you care to notice, Aafia Siddiquiis about your build and dimensions. May I suggest you get one of your Marines at the embassy to bring you a US army-issue M4 rifle. Now ask him to clear the chamber, affix the magazine, put the rifle on ‘safe’, and place it on the ground which would be the exact position in which Aafia Siddiqui found hers and with which she is alleged to have fired upon the US officer. You may very well fail toeven cock it in 10 seconds, let alone find the safety catch, lift the rifle to your shoulder and fire it.

Charge sheet against Aafia was implausible and inaccuracies could have been exposed through a simple simulation/ demonstration. Yet the American judge gave remand of her person instead of sending her to a hospital as she deserved in view of her condition (she was still bleeding from bullet wounds).

Why should seeking bail be so difficult in a case where the accusation doesn’t pass the test of common sense, let alone legal proceeding? More importantly, why was bail not even sought?

Such speculation sounds harsh but once the DOJ story is rejected there is noway we can pass over it as an “honest mistake”. If the story is false then obviously we are dealing with an unusually ugly and disturbing cover-up of enormous dimensions.

On Nov 19, 2008, US District Judge Richard Berman, hearing the case of Aafia Siddiqui, the Pakistani neuroscientist charged with firing on US officials, deferred a decision on her competency to stand trial till Dec 17.
At a conference hearing, the Federal Judge asked the defence lawyers and prosecutors to present their own findings on the mental status of Ms Siddiqui by Dec 17 before he could proceed with trial.
An evaluation performed by a federal prison doctor in Carswell, Texas, said that Ms Siddiqui was “not currently competent” to proceed as a result of her mental disease, which renders her unable to understand the nature and consequences of the proceedings against her or to assist properly in her defence.
Both the defence and the prosecution expressed reservations about the Carswell prison doctor’s findings. They had  both argued earlier that the frail-looking woman should undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US, Hussain Haqqani, has sent a letter to the US State Department, urging the US authorities to allow Aafia Siddiqui to return home. The ambassador argued that since Ms Siddiqui had already been declared unfit to stand trial, there was no justification for keeping her in the United States. The ambassador called for her release on humanitarian grounds and said she should be sent to her family for treatment and recuperation.

Earlier, on Nov 17, 2008, US District Judge Richard Berman while reporting the results of the evaluation that Dr Aafia Siddiqui is mentally unfit to stand trial, according to her psychiatric evaluation, had adjourned the hearing to Nov 19 to discuss how to proceed with Aafia’s case, including the possible use of medication to treat her.. He said that Aafia is “not currently competent to proceed as a result of her mental disease, which renders her unable to understand the nature and consequences of the proceedings against her.”

Her arraignment was delayed after Ms Siddiqui refused to submit to a strip search or cooperate with prison doctors.

On March 30, 2003, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui had disappeared from Karachi along with her three minor children, after leaving her mother’s house in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi, in a Metro-cab to catch a flight for Rawalpindi; she never reached the airport.

The July 3 hearing was scheduled to ascertain Ms Siddiqui’s mental health to stand trial by.

The court appointed doctor, Powell gave his opinion on Siddiqui’s mental status in the presence of Judge Berman and Siddiqui.

Ms Siddiqui returned to New York from Fort Worth (Texas) where she was sent for mental evaluation.

Siddiqui’s court appointed lawyer, Dawn Cardi, was also present besides a representative of Pakistan Embassy.

During the 30 minute discourse, Judge Berman was informed that Siddiqui was in good physical state. However, her lawyer Dawn Cardi disputed government’s claim.

Last November defense lawyers claimed that Siddiqui who was undergoing court ordered Psychiatric tests was unfit to stand trial. But on March 26 this year, US prosecutors submitted documents to the trial court stating that two independent, government psychiatrists had determined that Ms Siddiqui was ‘malingering’ or faking her symptoms of mental illness.

On July 6, Dr Aafia Siddiqui turned her hearing into a pulpit for telling anyone who would listen that she doesn’t hate America but doesn’t trust its courts. She repeatedly spoke to spectators, a US marshal’s deputy sitting behind her, her lawyers and even a team of five prosecutors and aides in front of her at the start of the afternoon session of the daylong proceeding. They were her first public comments since she was brought to the US from Afghanistan 11 months ago.

‘I want to make peace with the United States of America,’ Siddiqui said to the backs of those at the prosecution table. ‘I’m not an enemy. I never was.’

In court on July 6, she said: ‘I did not shoot anybody. I didn’t fire any bullets.’ Her defence attorney also disputes the US government’s account of what happened in Afghanistan, and a not guilty plea has been entered for Siddiqui. If convicted of the charges, Siddiqui, 37, would face a minimum of 30 years in prison and a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Throughout July 6’s hearing, Siddiqui rubbed her wrists, reddened by what she said was rough treatment by jailhouse guards who forced her to court in observance of the judge’s order that she appear. She pulled a white scarf over her face so only her eyes were seen.

Siddiqui earned an undergraduate degree in biology from MIT in 1995 and a doctorate in neuroscience from Brandeis University in 2001. She left the United States in June 2002 with her three children. She told the FBI that she worked at the Karachi Institute of Technology in 2005, that she tried to look for her husband in Afghanistan in the winter of 2007 and that she stayed for a time in Quetta.

Siddiqui had appeared in court twice after she was brought to the US last August but had refused to attend proceedings since then. US District Judge Richard Berman said he will rule later if she’s competent to stand trial in October.

Newly public court documents contain reports by psychologists who treated Siddiqui after she was arrested in Afghanistan in July 2008 and was charged with taking a gun and shooting at US soldiers and FBI agents. She was shot in the abdomen in the encounter.

Defence lawyers for Siddiqui are challenging her competency for trial, citing the conclusions of an expert who found she is suffering from delusional disorder and depression.

Prosecutors cite reports by psychologists who say Siddiqui’s behavior reflects malingering, the intentional production of grossly exaggerated psychological symptoms aimed at getting a result, such as avoiding trial.

Leslie Powers, a forensic psychologist, wrote in a document dated May 4 and put in the court’s public file late July 2 that new information helps show Siddiqui was living freely in Pakistan and Afghanistan from 2003 to 2008.

Reports prepared by Siddiqui’s psychologists claim that she was living freely in Pakistan and Afghanistan for portions of the five years before her arrest last year, disputing claims that the scientist had spent those years in the custody of foreign authorities.

As opposed to both the above versions, Siddiqui’s supporters and former lawyers maintain she had likely been taken into custody by foreign military intelligence authorities during those years and was subjected to torture, sexual abuse and beatings.

Psychologists say she’s had delusions that include seeing her three children in her cell and being visited by flying infants and dark angels.

L. Thomas Kucharski, a psychologist for the defence, testified Siddiqui suffers from delusional disorder and depression and is unfit for trial. Two mental health experts for the government, Gregory B. Saathoff and Sally C. Johnson, testified she’s fit for trial because her behaviour reflects malingering or grossly exaggerated psychological symptoms aimed at getting a result, such as avoiding trial.

When Johnson testified that Siddiqui had said the judge is a pawn of a Zionist conspiracy and only wants to kill her, Siddiqui turned toward spectators and nodded her head enthusiastically in apparent agreement.

Johnson said Siddiqui’s descriptions of seeing her children in her cell and other events had subsided over the months and an analysis of her recorded conversations with her brother and others had shown that she understood the charges against her and the legal process.

Kucharski testified that her prospects might be worse if she were found incompetent because it could trigger a court order of forced medication to treat symptoms so that she could become competent for trial. And, if her symptoms are not treatable, she could remain institutionalised for life, he said.

The psychologist also wrote that Siddiqui’s ex-husband, Mohammad Amjad Khan, reported seeing either her or their children on several occasions in 2003, 2004 and 2005. ‘While her accounts of her time are incomplete, her statements and other facts gathered seem to corroborate that she was not held captive from 2003 until 2008,’ Powers said.

Powers said Siddiqui was interviewed at length by the FBI for several days after her arrest on July 18, 2008.

She said FBI agents who accompanied Siddiqui on her 20-hour flight to the United States last Aug. 4 reported that she showed no signs of psychosis or psychological distress and that she was fully oriented and talkative throughout the trip.

Powers and two other experts have concluded Siddiqui is competent for trial.

In a defence exhibit, psychologist L. Thomas Kucharski, chairman of the Department of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, concluded that Siddiqui suffers from delusional disorder and is depressed.

He said her delusions ‘include the belief that the court is part of a conspiracy to have her killed, tortured and/or have her witness the torture of her children.’

He added: ‘She believes that the outcome of her trial is predetermined; that she will get the death penalty and has stated to this evaluator that there is no need to go to trial or work with her attorneys in her defence because of this predetermination. She required that I inform the court to just impose the death penalty or whatever penalty it chooses and to not bother her with the formality of proceedings.’

Gregory B. Saathoff, an associate professor in psychiatric medicine at the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine, said delusions Siddiqui had had involving flying infants, dark angels, a dog in her cell and children visiting her in her room were largely resolved after she believed she was found incompetent to stand trial.

Sally C. Johnson, a professor in the psychiatry department at the University of North Carolina, wrote in a March 16 report that Siddiqui’s medical problems have been treated and stabilized.

Johnson said Siddiqui has given vague accounts of her whereabouts from 2003 to 2008, saying she was given shelter by different people.

Johnson said Siddiqui has also given varying accounts of where her children were during those years but told one agent that sometimes one has to take up a cause that is more important than one’s children.

Johnson left a warning at the end of her report, saying that in spite of Siddiqui’s frail and timid appearance – she has weighed as little as 90 pounds – ‘her potential for aggression towards herself or others might be underestimated.’

She cited reports that Siddiqui had taken actions to try to escape from custody before she was transferred to the United States. Johnson recommended that adequate care be taken to protect Siddiqui.

‘Given her expressed degree of devotion to her belief system,’ she wrote, ‘it is possible that she could perceive herself as a martyr for a cause.’

Before she left court, Siddiqui insisted she’s not paranoid or psychotic and described her fears that her statements on July 6 might be her last.

‘It’s probably the last opportunity I’m going to get,’ she said, noting the possibility she will be subjected to forced medication. ‘I’ve seen people on the drugs. They can’t talk.’

At least twice during the hearing she indicated she will not cooperate with her court-appointed lawyer, Dawn M. Cardi. Cardi said outside court that her client’s behaviour supported her argument that she’s unfit for trial. ‘She’s not making any sense,’ Cardi said. The lawyer noted that Siddiqui had shouted to spectators that she could bring peace to Pakistan and Afghanistan if she were permitted to speak with President Obama. It was an example of grandiose behaviour that supports conclusions that she is delusional, Cardi said. In court, Siddiqui told spectators: ‘The American president wants to make peace. I want to help him. Am I making sense? I’m sincere.’

According to another report the US Federal Bureau of Investigation has been approached by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency for access to Dr Aafia Siddiqui to investigate her alleged links with any terror network. FIA Director General Tariq Khosa called for a probe against Siddiqui’s ex-husband, Mohammad Amjad Khan ‘to get vital information,’ a report in this newspaper said. A source claimed that FIA staff had also sought an interview with one of the Pakistani senators, who recently met Dr Siddiqui in the US.

An Islamic charity organization reported recently it has collected some $70,000 for the defense fund of Siddiqui.

The defendant, Aafia Siddiqui, has “sufficient present ability to consult with her lawyers with a reasonable degree of rational understanding and she also has a rational as well as a factual understanding of the proceedings against her,” Berman wrote.

Over the last year, psychiatric experts who have evaluated Siddiqui have said she reported dramatic hallucinations and delusions involving flying infants, dark angels, a dog in her cell and children visiting her.

One expert noted that the hallucinatory experiences ended abruptly after a psychologist found her incompetent for trial last year after a one-month evaluation. The psychologist later changed her opinion after a six-month study and a review of thousands of documents. “This is an instance where a defendant may have some mental health issues but may nevertheless be competent to stand trial,” Berman wrote.

Mental health experts testified earlier this month in a hearing that was interrupted several times by Siddiqui’s outbursts. At one point during a break, she shouted toward prosecutors: “I want to make peace with the United States of America. I’m not an enemy. I never was.”

The judge noted in his ruling that Siddiqui’s polite and appropriate demeanor during the first two hours of the hearing changed abruptly after a prosecutor asked a witness if he had seen any outbursts from Siddiqui. “Immediately thereupon, Dr. Siddiqui became much more loquacious, outspoken and difficult in the courtroom,” Berman said.

The judge noted that Siddiqui appeared appropriately groomed and in good physical condition at her hearing, entering and exiting the courtroom at an appropriate pace and without assistance.

Her lawyer, Dawn Cardi, did not immediately respond to a message for comment.

Yusill Scribner, a spokeswoman for prosecutors, declined to comment.

The committee decided that Dr Aafia’s sister, Fauzia Siddiqui, would be invited in the next meeting to share details of her sister’s case. It also considered sending a delegation of selected members of the committee to the US to meet Dr Aafia.

Dr Aafia’s detention, madrassa reforms, and a review of the report of the committee’s sub-body on the presence of American private security firm Blackwater in the country were discussed in the meeting.

Of the 16 jurors, 12 will be part of the jury team and four will be alternate team in case someone falls sick. Out of the 12, seven are women and five are men, with four alternate jurors, two men and two women.

“I have nothing to do with 9/11,” Ms Siddiqui declared when a potential juror who cited her personal experience on Sept 11 was dismissed. Dr Aafia suggested Israel was behind the attacks.

Ms Siddiqui’s trial for allegedly shooting at her US interrogators in Afghanistan in July 2008 by grabbing rifle during an interrogation in Afghanistan begins in the US District Court in Manhattan on January 19. She’s not facing terrorism charges.

When Judge Richard Berman quizzed the jury panel whether their 9/11 experiences would influence their deliberations, Ms Siddiqui stood up from the defence table.

“The next question will be on anti-Semitism, Israel was behind 9/11. That’s not anti-Semitic,” she said before being escorted out.

Judge Berman later said that anyone who disrupts proceedings will be removed, but that Ms Siddiqui has a right to be present for her trial and would be allowed to return.

On Jan 13, Ms Siddiqui demanded that Jews should be excluded from the jury at her trial.

Ms Siddiqui has repeatedly said she is boycotting her own trial and has attempted to make her case directly to prospective jurors and the judge.

Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a mother of 3 children is facing trial for, supposedly, wrestling an M-16 away from a CIA torture squad and trying to kill them. How did the CIA get her? They bought her. She was sold to them by a corrupt official in Pakistan as a “terror suspect,” a common problem and a well known ploy in the George Bush phony war on terrorism.

Was she a terrorist? There is no evidence of this, even after years of torture. The only serious crimes we find her guilty of is being a house wife, mother and Islamic and, I forgot, having an education. Her victims? Crippled and 100 pounds, she took on a room full of former Navy Seals, Special Forces and “private interrogators.” The obvious truth, of course: the charges are a fabrication by a pack of cowards and liars.

What do we really know?

We really don’t know anything at all.

Nobody has any evidence that this woman, a scientist educated in the US did anything at all.

There is talk, empty talk about her sending money to charities that might be tied to terrorism. The amount of money is about 2% of a typical payment from one of the Saudi royals that have funded terrorists and suicide bombers for years, but none of them are kidnapped, raped, shot or beaten.

They have oil.

The case against her is made, at length, in the Wikipedia article about her. It is a good read. It makes me proud to be an American.

What we see exposed, however, is the slave trade in “terror suspects” created during the Bush Administration fear frenzy when intelligence agencies around the world started dragging innocent people off the streets and selling them to the US for millions of dollars to supply the needed number of “terrorist arrests” to justify wild claims of a successful war on terror continually being made by Dick Cheney, Condi Rice and the rest of the gang.

The crime is an amusing one. A woman who was either just arrested or had been in custody for 5 years, depending on which of her captors you listen to. This should seem like an interesting read:

“On 4 August 2008, shorty after press rumors suggested that Siddiqui had been in Bagram for the last five years, the US government announced that Aafia Siddiqui was arrested on charges related to her attempted murder and assault of United States officers and employees in Afghanistan

The US claims that Siddiqui was not captured in March 2003, that she was arrested on July 17, 2008 outside the home of the Governor of Ghazni.The US account of the July 18, 2008 shooting is that FBI agents, interpreters, and several GIs entered arrived at the Afghan facility where Siddiqui was being held. The personnel entered a second floor meeting room—unaware that Siddiqui was being held there, unsecured, behind a curtain.

The Warrant Officer took a seat and placed his United States Army M-4 rifle on the floor next to the curtain. According to the US account the GIs set down their weapons, whereupon Siddiqui burst from behind a curtain, grabbed an M-4, and opened fire. One interpreter who was accompanying the officers seized the firearm from her.

US officials claim they have no idea where Siddiqui has been in the five years since she was captured on March 17, 2003.

Siddiqui arrived in New York on August 4, 2008, and was presented before a United States Magistrate Judge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Siddiqui refused to accept the charges.[27][28][29] Siddiqui’s lawyer stated that no one can believe the FBI story and that Siddiqui had actually been captured in Karachi, Pakistan along with three of her children.

On August 8, 2008 the Daily Times reported that Aafia was captured in Ghazni with her eldest son, Muhammad Ahmed. The report stated that documents existed that confirmed that Affia and her children had been captured in March 2003.”

Real Issues

This woman and her three children were kidnapped, and illegally held for 5 years under the most brutal conditions imaginable without any legal reason. She had been accused of no crime. After years of imprisonment, rape and torture, she is finally arrested for attacking those who tortured her.

Reality Check

After 5 years of imprisonment, Dr. Siddiqui was a total physical wreck, barely able to walk, and seriously disabled from hundreds of torture sessions. Yet she is accused of overpowering several Navy Seals and US Army Special Forces unarmed combat specialists, seizing a weapon and nearly killing all of them, this at a weight of 100 pounds.

“Nearly killing” is a bit of an overstatement. In fact, nobody was injured at all. The more we investigate this, the more this sounds like an outlandish war story cooked up to file for PTSD. She faces 20 years for this crime and only this crime. Since when was it a crime to attempt to escape from illegal imprisonment? Any American who is illegally detained and imprisoned without due process can’t be charged with a crime for resisting torture or imprisonment.

Attorney General John Ashcroft considered the kidnapping of this woman, along with her 3 children, one of the great victories of the War on Terror. However, after 5 years of interrogation and 7 years of confinement, no charges could ever be filed against her other than trying to single handledly crawl out of her death bed and dispatch a room full of “drug store” Rambo types.

Ashcroft has many success in his career. He is the only person in American history to have lost a seat in the US Senate to a dead man. In an unpublicized but much more interesting case, Ashcroft and his band of merry US Attorneys, in their attempt to rack up arrests for terrorism without doing adequate homework actually managed to drag in an entire CIA intelligence organization which had, until broken up by John Ashcroft and gang, penetrated the highest levels of Al Qaeda.

Not much more can be said, but several top CIA operatives now have the embarassing history of having been arrested for terrorist related charges. Ashcroft and later Gonzales have, through incompetence, done more to cripple US intelligence efforts than any group other than the Mossad.

Even the “outing” of CIA nuclear proliferation specialist Valerie Plame, believed to be responsible for North Korea getting nuclear weapons, involved much less utter bungling and inanity.

Witch Hunt

Nearly every legal expert in the world, including almost universal outrage among the legal community is Israel, has called this one of the most insane acts of abuse of any country that claims to have a functioning legal system and representative form of government.

Even the alleged “suspicious acts,” which are, by the way, buying totally legal and harmless gun accessories, is in itself totally insane. Am I going to have to register that dangerous combat assault flashlight I keep by my desk for when I drop my reading glasses?

Any idiot who goes to gun shows knows that the weapons that small children carry around in Afghanistan are ten times better than the things Americans can get from sporting good stores or thru mail order. Every time an American collector sees a photograph of a Taliban member who owns 2 goats carrying an AK rifle with forged receiver and top quality ART sniper scope, something worth $3000 or more in the US, the insanity of purchasing 3rd rate clone parts in the US to ship to a country that has enough assault rifles to supply the world for centuries begins to sink in.

Where is the NRA and ACLU?

Who is the Victims Here?

These things are obvious. We paid criminals to kidnap an innocent person for cheap public relations gain, elections were coming up and our War on Terror was looking as phony as, well as phony as it actually is. Then, after years of rape and torture, this frail Islamic woman tries to fight back, or so we are told, told by people who imprison innocent people, rape and torture. Are these witnesses we would have in an American court? She already considers herself dead. What human can survive such brutality, injustice, humiliation and abuse. Who are the real victims here? Americans who know nothing of the trial, American who sat silently while this went on, Americans who thought their cowardice was buying them “safety.”

The 37-year-old Siddiqui claimed that she was shot by two men while trying to escape.

”Somebody saw me and said something, a guy standing at the opposite end of the room saw me and shot me. And then another came from here and shot me. And then I just passed out,” she said.

She told jurors her case is an example of how authorities ”frame people,” she said.

Siddiqui, who’s been prone to courtroom outbursts and claims she was tortured in a secret prison, took the stand over the objections of her defense lawyers who said her ”diminished capacity” would turn her testimony into a ”painful spectacle.”

A judge allowed her to testify after prosecutors called her tirades ”opportunistic and calculated.”

The defendant was alternately poised, amusing and combative during about 90 minutes of testimony.

The first question asked by a prosecutor  ”You were born in 1972?” got the response, ”If you say so.” She described the charges as being so outrageous that they sometimes ”make me smile under my scarf”  a reference to a white scarf covering her head and face. She said that although she’s a scientist, ”I couldn’t kill a rat.”

US authorities’ portrayal is more sinister: They say Siddiqui picked up an unattended US military assault rifle at an Afghanistan police station on July 18, 2008, and fired two rounds at FBI agents and US Army soldiers. She missed and was wounded by return fire.

Prosecutors say the shooting occurred as Siddiqui was about to be questioned a day after she was caught by Afghan police outside a governor’s building. At the time of her arrest, she was carrying instructions for a dirty bomb and a list of New York City landmarks including the Statue of Liberty.

Siddiqui began her testimony by telling jurors she came to the United States to attend the University of Houston.

She later transferred to MIT, where she earned an undergraduate degree in biology, before obtaining a doctorate in neuroscience from Brandeis University in 2001.

She said she left the United States in June 2002 with her three children and returned to her native Pakistan.

Turning to the shooting, Siddiqui testified she was shot shortly after she poked her head around a curtain to see if there was a way she might slip out of the room where she was being held.

She said she was desperate to escape because she had been tortured in a secret prison and feared she would be taken there again.

”I was very confused,” she said. ”I wanted to get out. … I was afraid.”

She not only denied firing the M4 assault rifle, she said when she heard about the allegations she thought, ”What does an M4 look like?”’

After she was shot, she said she heard American voices saying: ”We’re taking this ‘B’ with us. They used the B-word.”

On the way to the hospital, she said she heard others expressing fear she might die. She said one of them said: ”A couple of us are going to lose our jobs.”—AP

On January 27, her defence brought in a forensic expert on Wednesday who testified that there was no evidence that a high-velocity M-4 gun was fired during a 2008 confrontation at an Afghan police station in Ghazni as claimed by the prosecutors.

William Tobin, a former Nasa employee, who testified as a forensic expert, said that in his opinion a photograph showing two holes in the wall were, with “scientific certainty”, not consistent with either a high velocity or low velocity bullet hole. He said they were simply “not bullet holes”. “SS09 bullets would have caused substantially more damage not only to the wall but also to the ceiling,” he testified.

Mr Tobin also said that the firing of an M4 would be such a “devastating event from a material standpoint that there should be a lot of evidence at the scene”.

According to his testimony, FBI officials are trained in gathering even the smallest fragments of evidence, but in the description of the incident given by the government there should have been even large fragments. Despite the fact that FBI officials were present at the shooting, no evidence of M4 shots were collected, neither large fragments nor small ones. Furthermore, no M4 casings, bullets, or residue were found anywhere in the room.

Last week FBI ballistics expert Carlo Rosati, who appeared as a government witness, made a similar statement. According to him, it could not be said with certainty that any shots were fired from the M-4 rifle. The only bullets fired at the scene were from the M-9 pistol that a US Army officer used to hit Dr Aafia.

A family lawyer has already announced an appeal, citing “prejudice and bias” against Siddiqui.

In Karachi, Siddiqui’s frail 70-year-old mother said the family had been braced for the verdict and would continue their efforts to secure her release.

“I did not expect anything better from an American court. We were ready for the shock and will continue our struggle to get her released,” Ismat Siddiqui said from her home in the Gulshane Iqbal neighbourhood. “The verdict is a humiliation for America. The verdict symbolises the beginning of the downfall of American might,” she added.

Siddiqui’s mother also blamed the Pakistan government, which is a US ally in the war in Afghanistan and which had also expressed dismay over the verdict. “What has happened clearly shows the lack of seriousness on part of our government in getting her released.”

Aafia Siddiqui’s elder sister Fowzia, a doctor, slammed the US justice system. “The verdict shows that American justice system cannot provide justice to innocent people,” she said. “She is innocent… She has never been a staunch religious person but she loved people and other creatures of Allah in distress and never shied away from helping them.” She claimed her sister was set up and kidnapped by Pakistani intelligence on the way to catch a flight from Karachi to Islamabad. “She was picked up by Musharraf’s men while she was on her way to airport to leave Karachi for Islamabad. She was then handed to the Americans, so how can she go to Afghanistan on her own?”

Charles Swift, the lead defence attorney, said after the verdict that “I have faith in American justice system. We will appeal the verdict. I completely disagree with the verdict given”.

Sentencing will be carried out on May 6, Mr Swift said.

However, the jury did not find her guilty on any pre-meditated murder charge. According to her lawyer, Ms Siddiqui could be given a sentence of up to 35 years.

“I myself raised the issues about Doctor Aafia Siddiqui… with various Congress delegations visiting Pakistan,” PM told reporters in Islamabad.

The case provoked outrage in Pakistan, with protests erupting throughout the country after the verdict and Pakistan’s President Zardari ordering his government to provide her with legal assistance in the US.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik told the media that the fingerprints of the young girl did not match the ones present in Nadra data base under the name of Mariam. However, Mr Malik’s statement, which was based on Nadra’s official response, was different from what senior policemen said.

A senior police officer overseeing the investigation stated that Nadra officials had tried to match the unidentified girl’s fingerprints to those present on Mariam’s manual passport issued in 2003. Since the passport was not machine readable, technically it was not possible to match the prints on it to the girl’s passport.

However, SSP Investigation of Zone East Niaz Ahmed Khosa said that the authorities had sent the blood samples obtained from the two children to the Institute of Biomedical and Genetic Engineering (IBGE) in Islamabad. The DNA profiling of the two samples would be carried out to determine if the girl is related to Ahmed. The results may take a week’s time. Since the family was taking care of the young girl, the option of sending the girl to the Darul Amaan had been not considered.

If the results confirmed the young girl is Mariam, she would be formally handed over to the family, the officer said, adding that if she was not Mariam, she would be sent to the Darul Amaan.

An interior ministry official in Islamabad said that the girl was believed to have been kept in captivity in Afghanistan till now.

When asked why the Afghan government had not been contacted to confirm the identity of the girl if she was Dr Siddiqui’s daughter and had been held in Afghanistan, the official said that Kabul had never admitted that the girl was present in that country.

Lawyers made this strange  request in a filing in US District Court in Manhattan, where she was convicted in February of two counts of attempted murder in the July 2008 attack on US authorities while she was detained in an Afghan police station.

Apparently, this request would jeopardise Dr Siddiqui’s case as it almost amounts to admission of guilt.

The lawyers said Siddiqui was ”driven” to her crime by mental illness.

”While the degree and extent of Dr Siddiqui’s mental illness has been the subject of much discussion in this case, one thing stands perfectly clear: the victim of Dr Siddiqui’s irrational behaviour is — first and foremost — none other than herself,” the lawyers wrote.

They described her behaviour in Ghazni, Afghanistan, as ”bizarre,” saying Siddiqui was ”cut off from any form of rational thought” by her knowledge that US authorities had engaged in the torture of detainees overseas.

”Cornered in the Afghan National Police compound, and left to her own devices, Dr Siddiqui tried, by any means available, to escape what she viewed as a horrific fate,” the lawyers said.

During Siddiqui’s three-week trial, FBI agents and US soldiers testified that when they went to interrogate her at an Afghan police station, she snatched an unattended assault rifle and shot at them while yelling, ”Death to Americans!”

She was wounded by return fire but recovered and was brought to the United States to face trial.

Siddiqui is scheduled to be sentenced in mid-August but the date is expected to be moved to September or later.

Her jury conviction set off protests in Pakistan, where there is a widespread belief that the charges against her were fabricated.

Siddiqui, trained at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brandeis University in the early 1990s, left the United States and returned to Pakistan after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Testifying in her own defence at trial, Siddiqui claimed she was tortured at a ”secret prison” before her detention. Charges that she attacked US personnel who wanted to interrogate her were ”crazy,” she said. ”It’s just ridiculous.”

Her lawyers said her behaviour at trial demonstrated her mental illness. They noted that she declared she was boycotting the trial, rejected her lawyers’ advice and subjected the court ”to frequent, nonsensical outbursts.”

After trial, she refused to meet with the probation officer or her lawyers, they said.

The lawyers urged the sentencing judge to reject the probation office’s recommendation that she be sentenced to life in prison, especially since she was never charged with any crimes of terrorism.

  29. Let start betting for the price Mr Prevez Musharaf will get for his own beloved daughter, wife , sister and mother !!!!!
    it is a famous saying “what goes around comes around”.

    General Musharaf and his cabinates (formar “selected” and new”elected “) did manage to get away with a cool selling of

    1 Lady “Dr Afia” test case
    1000 ladies ” Jamia Hafsa” proven case

    they are so lucky to get all the support and $$ from their masters.

    GOD is just and almighty . In His Creation all humans are equal. He will Inshallah do justice with Musharaf and all his like minded. Musharaf and his fellowers will soon find out dollars and rupees losing value in this world but are worthless in next world.

  30. I cant express my feelings for her. This is very sad. Present goverment must not put a further delay and immediate steps should be taken. What a pity.

  31. I really shocked of this miserable story of our sister. some one said: this world is not ruin by voilence of bad people but because of silence of good people. yes… Oh people; when we stand up?against the creulty of USA and our brutal, fascist, and dalal generals like musharaf and his company and also so called politicians who only want to make money and free their cases. Oh Allah, Oh Allah give us strength to unite and end this injustice and cruelty from our homeland and the world.

  32. What about her husband? Where is he? Can anyone trace him?
    As far as kids are concerned I am sure they r not alive now. They may be killed before the doc to get her mouth open about whta she hasn’t done; what she doesn’t know. Infact if she has really lost her mind this may be due to what happened to the kids.
    Those butchers must have used the kids to torture her. She may have committed sucide but her faith still seems to be mighty.

  33. A Glorious Dawn…And A Better Day

    To Dr.Afia Siddiqui – prisoner # 650 in American custody

    Another dawn …another day,
    Disgrace; insult is thrown our way;
    Yet shamelessly on their golden perch
    The spineless look – Oh how they sway!

    As if there is no Lord above,
    They with the devil-hand in glove;
    Selling our dearest values and souls,
    For gold and power – push and shove!

    This crime you saw they so denied,
    To filthy scum they sold the bride;
    Yet the mighty Creator seeing it all
    Unveils the gruesome act they hide!

    Amongst ravenous wolves the fair one lies,
    As from brutish hands she helplessly flies;
    A suffering sister sane no more,
    Her anguished screams – they rent the skies.

    And this is all the pride you boast,
    Our tormentors you daily host !
    But yesterday we shared the cup,
    – And today so far apart we coast ?

    When comes a ‘Qasim’ to stem this rot?
    Of Almighty Allah and His Messenger forgot!
    Of cheaply selling our heritage which –
    With submission and sacrifice was dearly bought.

    And yet the strong will go their way,
    As an ‘Iftikhar’ keep the monsters at bay;
    Afia! Our elders pray, while the braver fight –
    For a glorious dawn…….. and a better day!

    Authors Comments: I was motivated to write this poem after reading the shockingly monstrous, inhuman and criminally illegal way the US forces in Afghanistan have treated a Pakistani married women and her small children for the past 5 years.You can see the details of this at the Pakistani blog ; After repeatedly denying any knowledge of her whereabouts for the past 5 years the Americans have finally been forced to admit to their evil act because of the efforts of Mr.Moazzam Begg who recounted his experiences as a US prisoner in a book ; British Lord Nazeer; a British journalist Yvonne Ridley; and a number of human rights organizations (here is one press release you can read ;)who have presented evidence of a certain prisoner-of-war known as Prisoner 650 who was in terrible medical condition within an American prison located in Afghanistan – and that they had reason to suspect that Prisoner 650 is Dr. Afia Siddiqui.

    I ask readers of this poem to please join the cause to get her release by signing this petition at ……..and doing anything else to protest this American monstrosity- if you so wish.

    May I request you to please give this appeal the widest circulation. We may yet save the US forces in Afghanistan from disgracing themselves and the American people even further .

  34. Great Pakistan Army

    We should be proud of Pakistan Army who is the sign of protection of our masses . Musharraf is the identity of Strength of Pakistan Army and Army should continue supporting him. So many Afias are in the country and Army should try locate other Afias to earn money for Country. We Pakistanis should sell Afias, rest in ligthless rooms with naked dresses and drink local alchol. We are a great nations as we have a huge business potentials. We have 52% female section, so a huge business prospects

  35. It is unbelievable and shameful for muslims and specially Pakistanis all over the world.

    “Phir agar is qaum per Allah ka qahar nazil na ho tu kiya ho”

  36. It has been echoing arround me that Paki can sale their mothers against $2000. Oooooh God what a harsh statement, needed to put by Mr. Ishtiaq Beig in his article. But he is right as the same is happening. People have not forgotton about the decision made by the Basterd Mussaraf to kill so many students in Lal Mosque inccident and now the same ashamful activity came on the scene. May God bless upon pitty Dr. Afiya and made her rest of life in peace. Ameen

  37. THz is indeed very shameful .. And no doubt we muslims are dam weak to face or do anythin:@..
    And only Mis.afia but many more lyk her ar ein such circumstances so i pray for all of them .. ALLAH help all thz ppl AMEEN SUMMA AMEEEEN
    or jus wake the true believer muslim spirit in all of us ..:'(

  38. I am waiting for news when the daughter of this a$$ kissing ba$tard Musharaf, will be gang raped by his US brokers, and not only this bastard but all the Pakistani government officials, all of them ar DALLA’s, they have sold thier mother and sisters and daughters, may ALL MIGHTY ALLAH give Dr.Afia courage, patience and ajar for her misery. – Ameen and take revange from those who are responsible for her misery.

    1. How can u use Allah Almighty’s name and swear words on the same post? why do people like you enter into sin while thinking you are helping the cause of Islam. And doesn’t the Holy Quran say that ‘nobody shall bear the burden of another’? knowing that how can you even think of something so despicable for musharraf’s daughter? for all you know, she could also be in favor of Dr. Aafia’s release

  39. we want our sister back in any condition nw.. what the hell is this she did nothing and was treated so badly and unhumanly without any blame proved on her
    we ask musharraf why these sort of things done with paki national people and till what time it will b continued? where are the other girls of masjid-e-hafsa who are diappeared this is really horrible and pathetic to treat ladies/girls specially like this, i wish i could do somthing for her

  40. Poem:
    “”Prisoner 650-Grey Ghost of Bagram””

    My name is Prisoner 650,
    Known I am as the “Grey Ghost”
    Of Bagram, my home, remember me
    In years of silence, in moments
    Of indifference, created by you
    Familiar are those walls and rooms
    Of torture, of questions and of abuse
    Familiar are those old echoes,
    As all ideologies fall away in shame
    Of protection of rights and freedom
    Familiar I am to these accusations
    As I am dragged, naked and blue
    As I carry your foul breath, in eternity
    Familiar I am to you and your ways
    In labyrinth of twisted torture and routines
    As my face begins to fade, in its forms
    As this life becomes the burden in its disguise

    My name is Prisoner 650,
    Known I am not to the land of my birth
    Forgotten they have all but few of my own
    As I sit here through intervals,
    When sanity returns, as this mind play games
    Harder to distinguish what is worse
    The torture and abuse or being forgotten
    By my very own country, of my very own
    Through subjugation of humanity
    Familiar I am now, to these routines
    As I see myself break in pieces,
    As I see you, break in your emptiness
    Remember me, as I walked with you
    Tied down to my knees, in chains
    To these graves, in your quest for gold

    My name is prisoner 650
    Known I am to them as Grey Ghost
    Inside me the Bagram and its crimes
    Outside this world, you and absent me
    All available to you, all known to you
    The ambiguity you created, in those cells
    As I bath in that abuse in my dreams
    The voices, eyes, and rotten crimes
    As this civilization eats me slowly
    Through hands foreign, through hands
    Of my own, my own, my own
    Know I of my worth, know I of my place
    In these pedestals of humanity,
    All gone, inside me, the absent light
    As I search for the light, and cold showers
    In the old walls of Bagram, familiar I am
    To these mountains, my witnesses
    Heard me, they have, like those graves
    Unmarked, walk with me, sometimes
    Feel you will all, what was it like?
    Betrayal of my own, betrayal of my own

    I am the prisoner 650, cold and silent
    Charge me, it cannot be worse,
    I have seen it all, I have lived it away
    In your presence, the grey ghost
    In there, lies me, the old self,
    In unmarked graves, finally the freedom
    My name is Prisoner 650
    Stands here, in front of you
    In its demise, in what you created
    Against accusation, hollow and false
    Pay you will, in this life or next
    Familiar not to you, the old justice

    My name is Prisoner 650
    The grey ghost of Bagram
    In my weakened body and soul,
    As I carry these imprints
    Of your investigations and abuse
    Familiar I am to your ways and techniques
    As you pronounce in comfort, the justice
    Not much left in me, not much to say
    Remember the first sentence,
    The first utterance, long time ago
    Of my innocence, as I screamed
    As my skin pierced, as my soul raped
    Now what justice will you serve me?
    Not there may be, but still inside me
    Bagram, and its grey ghost, and you.

    I am the prisoner 650
    Remember me, unfamiliar I am to you
    To my own, in betrayal of my very own
    I have no more questions, to ask
    I am the Prisoner 650
    Never will I be freed, inside me remains
    The old landmarks of what I was once,
    You have done your work well,
    Declare me insane, as insane I am now
    They call me the prisoner 650,
    The Grey Ghost of Bagram, in your presence
    My beauty carved out of torture and betrayal
    These beautiful principles of protection
    Remember me, how can you forget
    In an unmarked grave, finally the freedom
    I am the Prisoner 650, Grey Ghost of Bagram!


  41. I don’t know the facts behind her arrest and handing over to FBI, but she has been given a inhumane treatment. Responsibility lies First with person/organization responsible to handover her to FBI
    God Help her and her family

  42. its jus beyond words what the american gov has done. we need to do someting about her release rather thhen talk abbout iit. ACTIONS are needed at this stage.not wordss

  43. I had studied a little about Dr A issue.
    But found one thing very clear that it is actually WAR B/W ISLAM AND KUFR.
    O’ Muslim broths and sisters,
    wake up, and show the Kafr, strength of ur sword.
    I SWEAR, they are coward.
    the need is to show them actual Zarab of MUSLIM sword.

  44. What the hell taliban and alqaida were doing in afghanistan when she was in bigram air base? they did nothing to release her why? these all are bharay kay tato (mercenary) and this innocent girl is suffering due to these mercenaries, only one or two talibans groups are fighting for rights rest of the groups are mercenaries of Indians, Israel, and americans.

    Our agencies and politicians are shit specially MF Musharaf who handover this girl to Americans, i wish Americans will do same with his daughter, unable to stop my tears God Bless her and forgive her

  45. every birth has equal rights but americans think they are superior and they juz wan to take all the people away from reality. in all these scenarioes we think AMERICA is a big terriorist and humanity has a great danger of this mean leaders.

  46. i want to be a Mohammad Bin Qasim now, really!
    i want to cry out loud but.
    i don’t know how to exhaust my anger now a volcano is in my heart.
    forgive me sister this is my mistake i could not save you from them.

  47. What should i say !!!!! in oder to Express the Brutality, Cruelity, Attrocity: Perhaps no word can describe the woeful experience . I am shamed of my self along with my country fellow for this henious, deprecating and condemnable deed of highest level. A Phd. In genetics, from an MIT, an institutes that is one of the best in the word, is being rewarded with TERRIORISt for the honour, dignity and respect, she brought along with her by succeeding through one toughest possible examination. Well Done Pakistanis, thats the way of respecting highly educated pakistanis and perhaps that is the most suitable reward, like blame of terriorist, with which we honour our cream of nation. People like Dr. Afia, deserve such reponse from thier country fellows for being remembering thier own country and social values, they must be penalized so that no body can ever, even think of doing that she have done, i.e. remembering pakistan and working its honour and dignity .
    Probabily, me and my fellows are perhaps waiting for angles to come down to earth and reply such brutal deeds as we are breathless, cripled and listless. Any way, such Phds are sources of forigne aid, so you sell them and get dollars, Congrats, the most innovative and remarkable use of a Phd.s

  48. plz don’n bark on the site, if u have the stength come to the field other wise shut ur mouth. barking dogs……………….. hopes u wil understand wat i m saying. american; these r just the shitters y i dirty my hands to work in these shits

  49. Put this on to the International Forums of Human Rights also.

    Keep blogging is just not the way.

    We are only good at doing NOTHING for our selves, for our country, and for our peoples.

    Dr. Afia don’t look forward toward PAKISTANIs because we are only good at Blogging.

  50. I’m writing to suggest that you please visit the website of which is a UK based NGO actively pursuing the release and support for the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

    This website has alot of useful information including interviews with the family members of the detainees, their addresses (prisoner numbers), and useful suggestions and tips regarding what words of support could one write to someone that one doesn’t know at all.

    It appears that a few words of support and care can go a long way in keeping faith and hope alive among prisoners who are in the worse of isolated conditions.. I’ve cut and pasted the following suggestions from the website regarding what to write to the prisoners and you can find a whole lot more about them on this website.

    It may sound like doing nothing, but praying for the prisoners and writing to them are very potent instruments at our disposal that can God willing bring about positive change.

  51. Who told her to go to Afghanistan for trainig?
    Who asked her to use her credit cards for buying war equipments over the internet
    who asked her to invite saudi people to her apartment in USD
    who asked her to donate to banned charity institutes linked to alqaeda
    who asked her to get settled in US with her suspecious activities after 9/11
    Who asked her to settle in US instead of repeated warnings of her husband
    there are so many questions to ask, Her case is not so clean and clear, its shaded with grey
    dont be so emotional for her and think before littering this website with plethora of emotional dialogues

    1. dont know whether ur man or women but ur a heartless human being if you can call urself that

      stay out of it if and dont tell us to think about what we are saying, clearly u havent read the whole story on dr aafia you fool

  52. Its sad that those who claim to be civilized are involved in such criminal activities in the name of terrorism. Who is really aterrorist here? Its cerytainly US policy makers. But do not forget, you will all be in HELL in the hereafter.

  53. Sorry my respected Sister. You are being tested by God. You know that you will be rewarded at the day of judgement. Make sure do not be afraid to speak the truth in front of these Judges as there is one and only one Judge watching all of these. God bless you, your children and your entire family.

  54. Mr CORPUZ, Shut the F/up. Look at all the claims you people were making before all these wars? what happened, none of these are true. Do you have a little bit of left over brain—-your own and think.

  55. This is very sad, i can not believe that pakistani govt can do this shit sham on them and i am ashamed of myself of being a muslim. They have forgotton their Allah for sure for this dam money. Think about your own daughters, sisters, mother, grand daughters before you hand over someone else’s daughter to strangers you idiots. ALlah is doing a justice here i guess thats why Pakistan is about the end now. But the sad part is that those dogs are still alive. Its month of Ramadan i always pray from ALlah since ever i got to know abvout this poor lady who has the hightest degree and suffering in Jail that whoever is envolve in this to give her in some strangers hands should go to hell and should be punished from ALLAH so they should never get up again ever in their life. She is highly educated person and Is this the reward she deserve for all her hard work??? You basterd Learn a lesson from non-muslims who always stand for their own nations and look at us.. May Allah give her strength. I feel very sorry for her. I will pray for you always until you come out of jail.

  56. I pray from God for better health and safe release of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. I pray that God give her strength to come back to her own country and sister you sacrifice for all of us. You will be having a great reward from God (The most merciful and powerful). We are all here nothing.

  57. To Our Sister in Islam Dr Afia & Family…..Please forgive us

    To Our Brother in Islam Muazzam Bag and Sister in Islam Yvonne Ridley…..Jazakumullah for waking us up

    To the Rest of the Ummah……Please wake up now.We all need to die of utter shame. Surely Allah the Almighty has paved a path of freedom for her now, but what are we all going to answer to our Lord Allmighty when we face Him. I pray He forgive us all for our negligence and restore Dr Afia’ sanity, physical and mental health and i hope she forever haunts her torturers and may the Almighty punish them both in this world and the Hereafter. Ameen…

    And lastly what about the rest of the prisoners of faith?????

  58. i pray for this sister to get freedom from terrorists,kindly pray for those who lost their lives in rrorindia and pakistan,by the hand of teists.may god send those to hell who support terrorists.

  59. i pray for this sister to get freedom from terrorists,kindly pray for those who lost their lives in india and pakistan,by the hand of terrorists.may god send those to hell who support terrorists.

  60. to corpuz,
    your line of questioning smells of the exact words of her tormentor. when your child is taken from your hands, (hope you have one then you’ll know what i am talking about) and your tormentors (you have seen pics in bagram, needless to say) have been given license to kill, you will say or do anything to save your children. about online payment to purchase night googles, do you think the people who produced whole passports of alleged 911 terrorists out of a towering inferno that allegedly to have melted its way down including the airplane, are incapable of not inventing the most outrageous fairy tales for gullible people like you? afia is our problem, not yours, she is the result of our 60 years of impotency. as far as paying muslim charities are concerned, do i tell the americans to stop giving charity to the israelis? its their money, they can wipe their ass which ever way they choose, stay out of our business.

  61. My heart simply goes out to Dr.Afia because I am a woman and a Muslim myself based here in the US and this could happen to me anytime. I have shivers go down my spine each time I think of poor Dr. Afia and her kids. And thanks to our leadership and the bastard Musharraf for handing over innocent people. All we can do is pray for her safe return home and that she can be united with her children and family. One feels so helpless in a situation like this one .All we can do is pray to Allah s.w.t to show us his miracle and ease the poor lady from her sufferings.


  63. TO ,


  65. Pakistani agencies including government figures who are acting like the american dogs are forgetting about one harsh reallity that in return of innocent Afia’s cries they are collecting Allah subhana talah’s wreath upon them Who has promised He will uncover the dictators and abusers intentions not only in this world but also there is endless pain after this life. Allah’s justice about one wrong word or one wrong step is quiet clear in Allah Subhanan Talla’s book and the so called muslims who are involved in hading over Afia and his innocent children to FBI should be clear about it that they are more payful for solding out their nation’s daughter instead of knowing all the meanings of hurmat of women in our society of islam. How long they are gonna live to enjoy this world Allah is watching their acts very closely. May Allaha Subhana Thalla reward Afia’s patience and her sacrifice with His blessings. Right now my heart is crying for her suffering and all my prayers are for her children and for her. I pray with the depth of my heart to Allah Subhana thala for His Blessings for Afia and for her kids. When Allah’s answer will come in face of these cruelties then no connections , no hidding and no money will help them inshallah thala. I am waiting for that time and every one else will see Allah’s justice in this world inshallah for Afia.

  66. i am surprized the media is being very quite over the doctors case.some news here and there.even the political parties seem to be taking not much interest in it.the inhumanity and satanic vengence against a muslim woman by christian men .this is a sort of a example set by the christians what they feel towards the muslims and by the humiliating torture directed towards the doctor they are humiliating the muslim ummah as the womanfolk of any nation are the symbol of the honour and dignity of that nation ,in this case the muslim ummah.i pray for the doctor and i pray for ALLAH’S mercy on her and the muslim ummah.

  67. America needs to stop violating the very basic rights of people for its personal agendas.

    Release innocent Dr. Afia and her 3 children

  68. Salaam to everyone all this bull shit war on islam is fake they were all by yahood and kafirs may Allah ease her pain she will be justify By allah here and hereafter

  69. shame on muslim brothers 2 not 2 help her what if she was BUSH’s sister hah? oe asife zardar’s hah? & yours? we should do some thing for her

  70. She is guilty.. 100% guilty.. i am a muslim and a pakistani.. but am not a fanatic like her who were on her way to kill innocent ppl. looking at all these ppl talkin abt her.. i am not surprised y we muslims are so fanatic..

  71. poppye is right. this should serve a lesson for terrorists. she fired on US troops. her hubby was a terrorist. millions of muslims are living in US, obey the law of the land you are fine, otherwise hell will let loose. i donot think hers is a case of mistaken identity.
    mani khan dallas tx

  73. STOP quoting “Mulsim Sister” or Religion…
    How you will explain she married to Top Alqaeda leader after divorcing her first husband.. then brought that guy to US….. what about her shopping using bankd card for thousands of dollars of army equipments..

    FBI may not be fair in some cases but they just didn’t went after her into Pakistan for fun…

    Pakistani living in Pakistan have been listening lots of rhetorics from Imran Khan and other idiots but have limited knowledge about Aafia’s background… she is one screwed-up terrorist like MANY other thousands of Pathans and Punjabis from South Punjab.. Govt need to bomb out completely Waziristan as these peoples have became a serious security threat to Pakistan

    All those emotional brain washed by GEO and Mullahs from “Lal Masjid” appears to be commenting here.. I say F*ck you to all of you.

  74. I’m very sad for Doc. These type of cruelties against Pakistani people will definitely not help to make this world a safer place to live.

  75. @sohail :
    when i fuck your mother and sister then i think your mind start working
    you ppl are fuck by musharraf

  79. What is law? What is justice? There is no such thing in the US where you are always guilty until proven innocent. How can you expect justice in the US courts where the standard policy is to reward bounty hunters making normal people mercenaries. Dr. Afia will never receive justice as long as there are biased judges on the SDNY Federal bench in Manhattan like Judge Richard Berman, totally blind judges like Judge Casey and bitches like Judge Colleen McMahon who are racist and incompetent. Please refer to the following link:

  80. Where is civilization? What is Difference between the Human world and Wild Jungle? What is LAW?

  81. Pakistan should make Arabic the national language…. to get Allah’s help and also to curb terrorism….

    read this speech…
    ……founder of Pakistan at a session of Motamer al-Alam-al-Islamiyya on February 9, 1951 in Karachi said:

    “I can assure you that it is not with a light heart that I address you this evening. I fully realise that what I am going to say will make me most unpopular with important sections of the population. However, I would be a traitor to Islam if I let this opportunity pass without placing before the people of this powerful and populous Islamic nation the views which I consider my duty to place before the Muslims with as many of the arguments as I am capable of using in a short address.

    I fear some of my arguments will mortally offend those who under totally different conditions gave so much of their life for the support of the cause which I think today has been passed by events far more important than any dreamt of in those days. I feel the responsibility greater than any I can think of to place my views and arguments before the Muslim population of Pakistan as a whole – each and every province – while what I consider a tragic and deadly step is not yet taken and not added to the constitution of this realm.

    The language of a nation is not only the expression of its own voice but the mode of interpretation with all other human societies. Before it is too late, I, an old man, implore my brothers in Islam here not to finally decide for Urdu as the national language of Pakistan but to choose Arabic. Please hear my arguments.

    If what was the other part of the former British Empire of India had made Urdu its national language, there would have been a great argument for Pakistan doing ditto. It could have been a linguistic and important point of contact with the vast Republic of the South. I am the last man on earth to desire to break any bridge of contact and understanding between Pakistan and its immense neighbour. Not only Urdu but even Hindustani has been replaced by Hindi throughout Bharat as the national language. The people of Bharat were perfectly justified to choose any language which the majority considered most appropriate and historically justified to be their national language. The majority there has the right to choose what was most suitable for them as the official language of the country.

    Your choice in Pakistan of Urdu will in no way ameliorate or help your relations with your neighbour, nor will it help the Muslim minorities there in any conceivable way. Howsoever you may add Arabic and Persian words to Urdu there is no denying the fact that the syntax, the form, the fundamentals of the language are derived from Hindi and not from Arabic. Was Urdu the language of the Muslims of India at the time of their glory? During the long Pathan period, Urdu was never considered the language of the rulers.

    Now we come to the Moghul Empire in the period of its glory. It was not the language of the educated. I defy anybody to produce a letter or any other form of writing by Emperors Aurangzeb, Shah Jehan, Jehangir, Akbar, Humayun or Babar in Urdu language. All that was spoken at the Court was Persian or occasional Turkish. I have read many of the writings of Aurangzeb and they are in beautiful Persian. Same is true if you go to the Taj Mahal and read what is written on the tombs of the Emperor and his famous consort. Persian was the court language and the language of the educated and even till the early 19th century in far Bengal, the Hindu intelligentsia wrote and used Persian and not Urdu. Up to the time of Macaulay, Persian was the language of Bengali upper classes irrespective of faith and of official documents and various Sadar Adalat. We must look historical facts in the face. Urdu became the language of Muslim India after the downfall. It is a language associated with the downfall. Its great poets are of the downfall period. The last and the greatest of them was lqbal, who with the inspiration of revival gave up Urdu poetry for Persian poetry. There was a meeting in Iqbal’s honour in London organised by men such as Prof. Nicholson. I was present at that meeting. Iqbal said that he went in for Persian poetry because it was associated with the greatness of the Islamic epoch and not with its misfortunes. Is it right that the language of the downfall period should become the national language of what we hope now is a phoenix-like national rising? All the great masters of Urdu belong to the period of greatest depression and defeat. It was then a legitimate attempt by the use of a language of Hindi derivation with Arabic and Persian words to find ways and means of better understanding with the then majority fellow countrymen.

    Today that vast British dependency is partitioned and succeeded by two independent and great nations and the whole world hopes that both sides now accept partition as final. Is it a natural and national language of the present population of Pakistan? Is it the language of Bengal where the majority of Muslims live? Is it what you. hear in the streets of Dacca or Chittagong? Is it the language of the North West Frontier? Is it the language of Sind? Is it the language of the Punjab? Certainly after the fall of the Mughal Empire the Muslims and Hindus of certain areas found in it a common bond, but now today other forms of bridges must be found for mutual understanding. Who were the creators of Urdu? What are the origins of Urdu? Where did it come from? The camp followers, the vast Hindi-speaking population attached to the Imperial Court who adapted, as they went along, more Arabic and Persian words into the syntax. of their own language just as in later days the English words such as glass and cup became part of a new form of Urdu called Hindustani. Are you going to make the language of the Camp, or of the Court, the national language of your new-born realm? Every Muslim child of a certain economic standard learns the Quran in Arabic, whether he is from Dacca or Quetta. He learns Arabic to read the Quran.

    Arabic is the language of Islam. The Qur’an is in Arabic. The Prophet’s hadith are in Arabic. The highest form of Islamic culture in Spain was in Arabic. Your children must learn Arabic to a certain extent always. The same is true of your West whether Sind, Baluchistan or the North. From the practical and worldly point of view, Arabic will give you, as a national language, immediate contact not only with the 40 million Arabic-speaking people of independent nations on your West, but the other 60 million more or less Arabic-speaking people who are not independent but who exist in Africa. Right up to the Atlantic, not only in North but as far South as Nigeria and the Gold Coast, Arabic is known to the upper classes of the population. In all the Sudans, on the Nile or under French rule, Arabic is the language right up to the borders of Portuguese West Africa. In East Africa, not only in Zanzibar but amongst the Muslim population of even countries as far apart as Madagascar and Portuguese East Africa, Arabic is known. If we turn to the Far East, Arabic has prospered throughout the region inhabited by 80 million Muslims of Indonesia, Malaya and Philippines. In Ceylon, Muslim children of the well-to-do classes get some knowledge of Arabic.

    Is it not right and proper that this powerful Muslim State of Pakistan, with its central geographical position, its bridges between the nearly 100 million Muslims of the East and 100 million Muslims of the West – its position of the East from Philippines and the Great State of Indonesia and Malaya and Burma and then westward with the hundred millions in Africa, right up to the Atlantic, should make Arabic its national language and not isolate itself from all its neighbors and from the world of Islam with a language that was associated with the period of downfall of Muslim States.

    And finally, whi1e Arabic, as a universal language of the Muslim world will unite, Urdu will divide and isolate. Gentlemen, brothers in Islam, people of Pakistan, people of every Province, I appeal to you, before you take the final and what I unfortunately must say, I consider, the fatal jump down the precipice, please discuss and let all and every one contribute their views. Take time and think over it. Once more I appeal for Islamic charity from those whom I may have offended and I appeal to all others to look to the facts in the face both historically and as they exist at present. I pray that the people of this country may be guided by Divine Wisdom before they decide.”

  82. why our politicians feel shame?? i dont know the reason behind that, Aafia baji is our sister, not theirs, baji is our mother not theirs, baji is our daughter not them,……SORRY BAJI WE ARE LITERALLY SORRY PLZ FORGIVE US PLZ, WE CANT DO ANY THING EXEPT CRYING AND PRAYERS, I THINK PRAYERS ARE THE ONLY WEAPON WHICH IS SELECTED BY ALMIGHTY ALLAH FOR MUSLIMS..MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU, AND LET YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE WITH YOU FAMILY

  83. it is a shamefull thing and a slap for US who is a fake ambassador of peace and so called ally againt injustic in the world. the 11 year old is kept in a room in bagram air base for 7 year. We want to know what was her fault except she was the daughter of Doctor Aafia.


  85. @muslim
    You IDIOT..what relation does Urdu bear to HUMAN RIGHTS????And do u even know what fraction of people in Pakistan speak Urdu as their first language???A mere 7.5% u dumb ass!!!
    I am only too glad tht not all my countrymen are idiots like u.
    Islam has LOTS OF OTHER SYMBOLS THAN JUST ARABIC…like honesty,integrity,respect for fellow beings and most importantly ENORMOUS EMPHASIS ON SEEKING KNOWLEDGE.
    If at all u want to do some kind of SERVICE TO ISLAM go create more universities..more scholars..more research..more technology.

    The LAST thing we want to hear right now is utopian ideas from u!

    Their daughter is being tortured and raped by AMERICAN BASTARDS and they’re TOO BEGHAIRAT to do anything about it.
    No,I would not call them helpless because they could have brought up Dr.Afia’s case now tht they are entering into so-called negotiations with their bastard american masters in afghanistan.BEGHAIRAT TALIBAN ARE MERCENARIES WORKING FOR AMERICAN BASTARDS IN THIS REGION.If they cared about Dr.Afia,they could have had her released in return for their service to america.

  87. afia siddque was a real whoree, i am happy she got punished for her sins, she should had been hanged to death so you muslims learn a lesson, its the filthy quraan that has ruined many lives and that pedophile and motherfukerrr muhammed shyttt b upon him

  88. islam is the real cult, thats why i am saved from this evil religion, we should all burn quraans as much as we can and kill all these mad people like afia siddue , she was a true whore and what ever i shappening to her right now, she deserves it.

  89. it is very difficult for me to understand that a muslim lady having a tremendous academic record can be involved in the cospiracy of killing the american soldiers. in fact muslims have never involved women in jihad activities.AND americans have been involved in hurting the muslims in the past . they awarded noble prize to the person who insulted muhammad ( s.a.w)his name was salman rushdi . they awarded noble prize to yhe person who was cursed by the all muslim umma because of his shameful act in which he make the sketches of muhammad (s.a.w).americans & europians have a common practice to tease muslims by insulting muhammad (saw) nowadays and now they are teasing muslims in a new way.these activities are not defaming the the holy prophet muhammad (saw) . you can see that 182 people accepted islam in america after the incident of plan to burn quran in america. i am a muslim and i can never think to say something that will heart its followers .muslims respect all the prophets of allah .and they do not behave like the so called civilized nations of the world .as far as islam is concerned , mr akeel islam is a blessing for the humanity , the emergence of islam gave rights & protection to the ignored people .deen e islam is the right religion and it is growing , because no power on the face of earth can restrain righteousness to grow . and whoever will be right will prosper . change your ideas about islam , know islam by studying the quran & hadees . do not see the muslims to see the muslims to know islam .

  90. “THE RND OF DAYS”. This is mostly what I can come up with right now. This is a direct attack US deploys in the face of Islamic World. It knows no one can do anythign wgainst it so do what it wishes. No one to question it. But don’t the politicins of our country have some self_esteem. Can’t stand up for justice, let alone for humanity. PAKISTAN u’ve lost it completely.

    I need to convert to another nationality. Allah b with Dr. Afia. I claim her the Muhammad Bin Qasim of our country, Enduring the torture on our behalf.

  91. USA should drop all the charges against her once her connection with Al Qaida has not been proved. This proves her abduction as illegal and rest is consequences where you can charge her with anything once she is under the detention of FBI.

    Where is the justice system under which USD became of the greatest nations in world. I don’t see that justice being done to Dr. Afaia.

  92. just what can i say abt it
    the americans r jux afraid of pakistanis thats why doin all this bull shit
    and males of our country are jux leavin comments sendin text msgs abt dr.afia’s imprisment they cant do any thng else for her. Dont they realize that by leavin any sort of comment they cannot fulfil their duty.
    wen there wz da matter of supereme court all da pakistanis were out of theri homes with nawazsharif bt now in dis matter no one is cumng out , now there iz no nawazsharif & not a man iz doin anythng except leavin a comment our sndng a text msg

  93. We have to think about it as we beleive as Muslim that all the odd and evens are from god will so why Afia has gone throug such sort of humiliation in the world and why all muslim rules particularly our ruler and establishment who have now the capability to dictate US are quiet on this matter as Dr. Afia is an international fame lady and she is now known to whole world and in Muslim Ummah
    She is one of the well educate and talented lady of Pakistan and can be the next President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan
    Now is the time for the people of Pakistan to bring her through political process in assembly and appoint her as Persident of Pakistan.

  94. We all have short memory. USA knew it that all demonstrations that were being arranged were just show off rather than reality.They know that we are a divided nation. I feel really sorry for Asfia as we did not react to this gross injustice seriously. However, I believe that we can still do the magic if we stand up and make it a issue of our life. The President of USA has the power to grant freedom to Asfia or his custody can be handed to Pakistan.

    She is brave woman and deserves our supports. Allah watching us.

  95. Dr. Afiya’s crime ,if at all if it is true , is insignificant, compared to the crimes of the Americans in invaded countries.
    Shame on the people who accuse her trying to kill the well armed and hefty military men.
    Dr. Afiya’s arrest , torture and forced confessions is just one of the numerous
    heinous crimes committed by this army.
    President Obama should, as a good human being ,intervene in his capacity and set her free.

  96. in islam handing over of muslim woman even though she has commited crime is prohibted. our rulers in all are basically shame less and r beghyrats. had afia been some politician or a daughter of a ruler she had not been in such pain. but our dogs politicians can do any thng, they can sell their mothers and sisters to non muslims at any rate. our tragedy is our rulers, zardari type rulers and rehman malik type wazirs, they just need money to sell our nation. keep on doing it zardari and party,,,one day u will answer for this, lets c u in the dock of Allaha on the last day ..

  97. Well as a matter of fact the Muslims are not against US but of course the policies, Dr Aaafia is really a respected woman and daughter of muslim nation all muslim nation should be curious about TRHTH only and we say if she is criminal then should punished but if she is INNOCENT then must come back and wtih full respect and governemtn should play their role and take this matter in serious today Aafia and might be some other days yours or our sister please please please take it as really important matter. US must realise and see this case again just from the begining with full sincerity I personally believe TRUTH cant be hide and GOOD people are all present in all our the world. Now non muslims too realise that its just matter of prestage only.

  98. Leave religion out of it. Religion has nothing to do if a crime was committed or not. Legal cases are based on facts and the circumstances that were involved in the case. All governments and religions are corrupt, after all we are nothing more than human beings, so it is in our nature. They should try here case before the Hague and not the US/Pakistani courts. If she is to be charged with these crimes it is within the Hague’s jurisdiction as it is considered a war crime. As for her alleged torture, any for of torture is inexcusable. They should have charged her with these crimes and the attorney’s given full disclosure of all evidence. As stated before her trial would not be taken place in in either Afghanistan, US or Pakistan but by a neutral country and/or legal organization such as the Hague.
    I hope that she has begun the healing process and that the dark days have been sent to the past.

  99. noted something????
    every reply is of a MUSLIM,means no one is there 2 help but we ourselves.

  100. If PPP wants to win the election again and they want to gain power again then bring Dr. Aafia Siddiqui back to Pakistan and we all would give you vote for this great work………………. From Pakistan

    1. CAN’T THE GOV’T DO SOMETHING FOR HER FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY!!? What the hell! PPP is in power now,.. they gave R.Davis over, but let Afia be tortured again and again while letting Pak’s public & military men die.

      Pakistanis are so disgusting,.that’s why the leader is this appauling

  101. Mr Zardari you sub par baari, but in the eyes of Allah you very light and selfish. Still if you want to become a nice person in the eyes of Allah then bring Dr Aafia back to pakistan safely.


  103. Its sad 2 hear this n my heart goes out 2 dr affiya. I make dua 4 her n I feel 4 her. My duas r wit her…inshallah justice wil b served, n that only from allah. Every1 speak of justic bt wen it cums 2 it they over luk it. We all live in sukoon n comforble life allhiumdulila bt hw can we go on knwing hw horroble dr affiya is treat n imprisioned 4 wat da americans assume she was doing. Allah is helping her n we knw he is helping her this is her purification. She wil gat her fredom

  104. She is guilty or not whatever she does not deserve such humiliation, continuous rape, even to shower & toilet in view of all. This is humiliation of Human Beings no matter from which religion or cast they belong to.

    Think like human beings. If she is guilty then a punishment for a long time is enough, there is no need to torture her phisically & mentally. Not to her and not to other prisoners.

    Shame on America, Shame on all Civilized Societies, Shame on Human Beings.


  105. I am agreed with the statement Jaisi Quom waisay Hukmaraan. If would be following Islam properly we would never be degraded from these stupid americans. But we should never leave the hope inshallah the day will come soon we will get back our respect. And our daughters, sisters and brothers will not be humilated from these infidels.

  106. YaRahman shower your blessings on her. γ̲̣̣̥α̇̇̇̊ Allah who so ever by anymeans involve in what happen to Dr Aafia punish them have no mercy on them. Ameen γ̲̣̣̥α̇̇̇̊ Rabb

  107. shame on America… according to English law every convicted person is innocent until his/her guilt is proved.. but in case of afia it has gone reverse… rather i should say in case of Muslims all the laws are reverse…

  108. I recently saw a testimony about a spell caster of some sort in a blog I visit for relationship and dating counseling problems because i had been having serious issues with my boyfriend and we had been dating for six months,he just suddenly changed,he was returning my calls,he started cheating,he was hurting me in so many ways i never thought possible and I just thought I should try it*maybe out of desperation of some sort*..and I contacted them..At first everything felt dreamy and unbelievable,their consultations and solution was a little bit easy and strange and I was scared a little cos I heard read and heard lots of stories of fake spell casters,scams and i never really believed in magic..I played along with a little hope and and faith and I was sent some few stuffs after everything and it worked like a miracle,everything went to a while new direction,it was and is amazing…I guess it was all good faith that made me read That particular post that faithful day..I hope they could help other people too like they did me…I did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished for*my husband,my family and my life back*their address is;

  109. Iv heard about your story but iv never read it 4 myself reading it Today brought tears to my eyes.. Just reading it. I do not know what u are going through and ill never know.. But it hurts me and I cannot imagine how it hurts you physically and emotionally.. All I can say is that u are truly and undoubtley a strong women. We believe that u did not do what they have accused u of doing.. And Allah knows,Allah knows! Allah knows.. I will make dua everyday and everynight 4 u so Allah makes it better 4u and I will make dua so that hr gives u a better life in the here after and I will make dua that Allah will reunite u with u and ur family.. Just be strong and hold on. We out here are praying 4u! If there was anything in my power that I could do I would but all I can do is pray 4u! Razaanah….

  110. A guy as big as a grizzly bear kills two Pakistanis in broad day light in front of thousands of witnesses. A third Pakistani is killed by those who are coming to save him and are driving on the wrong side of the road, James Bond style or more like Jason Statham. He is released without any trial!

    A goon kills 77 of his own people for no fault of theirs, just to express his hate for Islam. Gets 21 years in prison eligible for parole in less than 9 years after allowing remission of 440 days already spent in custody.

    A fail 5 feet tall woman in a prison is accused of snatching an automatic rifle from a Marine in front of no independent witnesses except two other marines. She is shot twice and after recuperating she is sentenced to 86 years in prison.

    Quite ironical, isn’t it.

  111. In this article, I noticed that Aafia Siddiqui was subjected to a ‘forced pregnancy’ (about the 25 paragraph down of the top). So, what in the world is a ‘forced pregnancy’? A forced pregancy is the same thing as a rape, isn’t it? Have rape charges been filed against the one who inpregnated her? Please explain. I’m dumb when it come to ‘forced pregnancies’. Most sincerely, James

  112. Realy upset… no words express my views……..all mighty gives the best her ……..we prays Allah……for her ahira life…….

    1. i says that shame on gardari and on our all leaders every child want their parents present so plz u look to their childrens they r weeping till now plzzzzzzz help their childrens allah will help u.god will bless her and allah will help her bcz with every muslim allah is presents but our leaders should do little struggle for aafia not only our leaders all pakistani bcz aafia is the daughter of pakistan, iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ammmmmmmmmm only saying that i want muhammad bin qasim back

  113. A different set of rules for an innocent frail woman shot, injured and illegally abducted from a foreign country and a different set of rules for a goon who murders two innocent foreigners in a foreign country! (While a third innocent foreigner is killed by a US embassy vehicle driving on the wrong side to rescue that murderer!

  114. I am Miss speck from USA, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR RACUMA for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found SPELLCASTTEMPLEHOME20@GMAIL.COM a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 3 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR RACUMA released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I’m writing this testimony right now I’m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my fiance is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up.

  116. It absolutely disgusts me to think that we have so many criminals running not just the United States, but practically everywhere. If we do not stand up, and kick these assholes out, then we are doomed.

  117. ak larki faryad py muhammd ben kasam ny sendh tak jang krny aa gea or fata e kr lea
