Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui on her Twitter account and said that Aafia was
kidnapped from Pakistan in 2003 and America sentenced her for 86
years without any evidence against her, which is an inhuman act. She
said for last 18 years Aafia has been kept in solitary confinement. She
said that even American judge has confessed that she was sentenced
without any evidence against her. She said I met her sister Dr. Fowzia
Siddiqui, who is traveling in different parts of the world in connection

subcontinent to support the Khilafat Movement. She said that the
Pakistani people would also not forget the great support of Turkish
people, media, political, social, human and women rights organizations

that are raising voice against injustices being meted out to Dr. Aafia
Siddiqui. They have expressed concern and agony over illegal
detention of Aafia for more than 18 years. They are also wondering
why the government of Pakistan has failed so far to seek the release of
Dr. Aafia.
Dr. Aafia talking on the role of Muslim Ummah in this regard has said
that had the Ummah united for the cause of the Muslim daughter Dr
Aafia, she would not have been kept in detention, which has caused
disgrace for the Muslims in whole world.
