All set for ‘national jirga’ on Aafia

Political leadership, civil society, rights campaigners reach Karachi to attend the jirga

KARACHI: Preparations have already been finalized for a grand National Jirga in Karachi to discuss the issue of Dr Aafia Siddiqui imprisonment, and political leadership, civil society members, rights campaigners from different parts of the country are reaching Karachi to attend this important national moot, while a large number of Karachiites would participate in this unique national program.
Aafia Movement leader Dr Fowzia Siddiqui here Wednesday said this national jirga in front of Mazar-e-Quaid Karachi holds paramount importance, as it would discuss the Aafia Issue from different angles and formulate solid recommendations for taking necessary steps on State and non-State level to secure early and honorable release and repatriation of the daughter of the nation. She said this Jirga would not only prove to be the voice of Pakistani nation but also reflect the aspirations of whole Ummah on the issue of Aafia Siddiqui.
She said now when an agreement has already been inked between Pakistan and United States of America for the exchange of prisoners, there is no justification of further delay in securing the repatriation of Dr Aafia. She hoped that the relations between the two nations would further improve when Aafia is sent back to rejoin her children and ailing mother in Karachi. She said this would also give a great boost to people-to-people relations between Pakistan and the US, and also help the US administration improving its ties with the Muslim world. She reminded that the trial and conviction of Dr Aafia on flimsy grounds has already tarnished the US justice system worldwide, and the repatriation of Aafia would provide the US a chance to improve its image in the sectors of justice system and human rights. She said Dr Aafia’s reunion with her children would also uphold the US standards and traditions for defending the rights of mothers and children.
She appealed to the Karachiites to attend the moot along with their families to express solidarity with their sister Dr Aafia Siddiqui.
