Petition Title: repatriate Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, imprisoned for more than 11 years, as a matter of urgency.
In the name of ALLAH, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful. We appeal to you as brothers and sisters in humanity to relieve the suffering of an innocent woman. In March 2003, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui was abducted with her three young children in Pakistan on the basis of faulty intelligence, a rendition operation that a former Pakistani official has since admitted. Five years later she mysteriously reappeared in a weakened state in Afghanistan; she was shot and later charged in a federal court with attempted murder. Dr. Siddiqui was sentenced to 86 years for a “crime” in which she alone was injured, she has now suffered needlessly for more than 11 years. We ask the government to affirm the American ideals of “liberty and justice for all.” End Aafiaxs suffering; reunite her with her family.
