Dec. 9, 2011
Aafia Movement has received a very positive reception in Baluchistan as rallies and events that highlight the serious situation in the area.
Quetta - Dr Fauzia Siddiqui, the sister of imprisoned Dr Aafia Siddiqui, on Friday condemned the government for towing pro-American policies and urged the people to fight for their rights. Addressing a press conference at the Quetta Press Club, she said that the government had adopted an apologetic attitude towards NATO regarding the murder of 24 military personnel. She said that it would be an insult to the Pakistani nation if the NATO supplies were resumed after a mere apology. Dr Fauzia said that five military operations had been conducted in Balochistan in which innocent people and leaders were killed, adding that she had come to Balochistan to express solidarity with the Balochi people and the families of the missing persons. She said that the missing persons were in the custody of the government agencies. She demanded that if these people have committed any crime then they should be produced before the court of law, instead of being confined to illegal detention.
