“Dr Aafia became a victim of domestic violence during her marriage…The Person who kidnapped her has finally come forward…And confessed to the heinous crime on the behest of her ex-husband and the regime that stripped Pakistan off its dignity by selling its own citizens.”Background of Case / What Evidence, Investigation has uncovered? http://aafiamovement.com/background-of-case/
There are reports from her professors in Boston that they saw her with bruises on her face. And her husband, Dr. Amjad Khan, told Harpers Magazine reporter Petra Bartosiewicz in 2008 that his wife had once had to go to hospital after he threw a bottle at her. There are photographs of her with a deep cut across her face.Compelling New Evidence About Aafia Siddiqui’s Detention by the ISI, and Her Rigged Trial in the US, 14 February 2011
Thirty-one year old Dr Siddiqui’s brutal abduction and kidnapping on 31 March 2003, while on her way via taxi to Karachi train station or airport to travel to Islamabad, accompanied by her three young children: Ahmad, six years old and an American citizen, Maryum, four years old and also an American citizen, and baby Suleman, six months old, is no “mystery” but one of the most diabolically malicious crimes against humanity cooked-up by a narcissistic vendetta motivated ex-husband and self-serving father.
According to the German weekly Der Spiegel, just a few days before she disappeared Affia Siddiqui had contacted her former professor, Robert Sekuler, at Brandeis University in search of a job, complaining that there weren’t any job opportunities in Pakistan for a woman of her educational background.US frame-up of Aafia Siddiqui begins to unravel – Pakistani victim of rendition and torture
At a time when Bush’s notorious global “war on terror” was in its stride of CIA controlled secret prisons at nefarious black sites packed with “ghost prisoners”, predominantly across the Middle East, and most specifically at the nefarious black site, ie hell on earth, located at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. During the time when Pakistan’s ISI, Inter-Services Intelligence, were handing over hundreds to thousands of innocent Pakistanis, including children, to the CIA and the FBI; most of whom had no history of “extremism”, “radical Islam” or “terrorism”. Most of whom had never met any Al-Qaeda alleged “terrorists”.
…critics assert that anti-terrorism operations have resulted in the detention of thousands of people by the security agencies, without their whereabouts being disclosed even to family members. Pakistan has one of the highest rates of enforced disappearances in the world. Pakistan’s Defense of Human Rights claims that the total number of cases of missing persons is 5,149 and 252 of them surfaced in 2014 alone.Pakistan’s Intelligence Agency, ISI, Behind Enforced Disappearances in Country: Pak Court, 18 July 2018
Pakistan’s Directorate of Inter-Service Intelligence [ISI] plays an ambiguous role in the War on Terrorism. An important ally for Western intelligence with whom it has very close links, the ISI also has a long history of involvement in supporting and promoting terrorism in the name of Pakistan’s geostrategic interests. This article explores the nature of the ISI and its aims and objectives in the post-9/11 era. It argues that the focus of the ISI’s actions are to shore up Pakistan’s ruling elite and to destabilize Pakistan’s enemies by the promotion of Sunni Islamism at home and of pan-Islamist jihad abroad. The ISI’s strategy, however, deeply conflicts with that of the West, a point underlined by the resurgence of Al Qaeda and the Taliban almost six years after the War on Terrorism began. With grave new trends evident in Pakistan, reliance on the ISI is failing and a Western rethink of its intelligence strategy toward Pakistan is now imperative.The ISI and the War on Terrorism
The timing of ISI / CIA / FBI “terrorist” hunts was a convenient, and necessary, solution to Dr Amjad Mohammed Khan’s twisted predicament in getting rid of his lovely and highly educated ex-wife once and for all, even at the cost of his beautiful children’s lives, the youngest of whom, six-month old Suleman, may well have died on the day of the abduction. It was perfect timing, because Amjad Khan had a serious problem, aside from the fact that he was consumed with envy and hate of his ex-wife Dr Aafia Siddiqui; he was being pursued by the FBI for a number of questionable purchases and transactions that he refused to take the fall for and likely end up being tortured in some secret prison for years himself…
There were actually more public signs that Khan (who bitterly denounced his former wife earlier this year (ie 2010) as a violent jihadist) was associated with radical Islam than Aafia.WHO IS AAFIA SIDDIQUI – TERRORIST OR GOVERNMENT PAWN?
A few weeks after Aafia Siddiqui disappeared, her husband had a four-hour interview with US and Pakistani agents, and US suspicions of Dr Khan were dropped. About two months later Dr. Khan travelled to Saudi Arabia for some time. (According to “rumours” online, Dr Khan is still holed up somewhere in Saudi – H4HR.)
Dr Khan told Harpers Magazine that his “contacts in the agencies” informed him then that Dr Siddiqui had gone underground. He went on to say that he had no idea where his children were — a claim he would later contradict. After her arrest in 2008 Dr Khan told a reporter from the Pakistani daily News that he thought his former wife was an “extremist” and that of course she had been on the run. After Ms. Bartosiewicz left Pakistan, she had an email from Dr Khan saying that he had received “confidential good news” from the ISI that Mariam and Suleman were “alive and well” with their aunt Fowzia. (In fact at that point one was in prison and the other was dead.)Compelling New Evidence About Aafia Siddiqui’s Detention by the ISI, and Her Rigged Trial in the US, 14 February 2011
Bully and wife abuser, Dr Khan’s incomprehensible vicious plan to forever wash his hands of his annoying ex-wife and his children was a resounding success, including bailing his sorry ass out of his looming FBI troubles with his plethora of egregious lies by framing his ex-wife as an “extremist terrorist” for the criminal and culturally driven radical Islamic beliefs and schemes he perpetrated.
Dr. Amjad Mohammed Khan , a former anaesthesiologist at Brigham and Womens Hospital, was sought for questioning by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The former husband of Afia Siddiqui, Khan was the scion of a wealthy family, and the FBI has suggested he might have been involved in Majid Khans alleged plot to destroy gas stations in Baltimore, Maryland.Amjad Mohammed Khan
Amjad Mohammed Khan, the typical exploiter of victimization and deception abuser personality:
“She got hysterical fits when she became angry and would physically attack me, but I put up with it for the sake of our children.”
“I was aware of Aafia’s violent personality and extremist views and suspected her involvement in Jihadi activities. My fear later proved to be true when during Uzair Paracha’s trial in the US in 2004, the real purpose of Aafia’s trip to the US (between December 23, 2002 and January 3, 2003) was revealed.”
“I tried my best to save our marriage, but divorce was inevitable,” he recalls.Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s husband breaks his silence after six years
The conundrum of Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s “disappearance” for five years, ie 2003-2008, has been touted and proclaimed as a vexing so-called “mystery”, because the corrupt agencies and their enablers involved have committed an explosive unprecedented crime against humanity against one woman, a mother, and her three children. They conspired for a mutually beneficial and lucrative deal, likely in payment of a ransom sum, with a devious narcissist ex-husband and agreed to abduct, imprison, sexually abuse and torture an innocent woman and her three children for five years in trade for the bona fide criminal. It’s hardly complicated, never-mind a “mystery”, to comprehend these sterling ISI, CIA and FBI agents cannot afford to ever have the simple truth come to light. The public blowback would be incontrovertibly unrivalled.
Aafia Siddiqui was never dubbed a drama queen nor has anyone who knew her ever claimed that she was attention-seeking or a liar. Why would this heinously tortured and unimaginably aggrieved woman make up a story about her and her children’s brutal abduction in 2003 and being kept at secret prison black sites as a “Ghost Prisoner”, ie Bagram, Afghanistan? It’s beyond shameful for anyone to ever suggest it.
The following is evidence, written 9-years ago, of the deliberate whitewashing of the unprecedented crime against humanity and the incredible lies and corruption of those in power perpetrate against Dr Aafia Siddiqui and her children to this day:
Now new evidence of the kidnapping of Dr Siddiqui prises open part of one of the most shocking of the myriad individual stories of injustice in the “War on Terror.” It also underlines the recklessness and perfidy of a key United States’ partner in the “War on Terror,” which carries its own threat of explosion.
…a senior law enforcement officer has claimed to have been involved personally on the day she was seized, with her three children, by Pakistani police agents in Karachi in March 2003 and handed over to the Pakistani intelligence agency, the ISI.
The new evidence, on a secretly recorded audio tape, is a potential earthquake in the chronically unstable political situation in Pakistan, where rage against the US runs deep and wide, especially as civilian casualties mount with the use of drone aircraft. Already the case of Aafia Siddiqui has periodically brought tens of thousands of people out on the streets in the last two and a half years in protest at what has been done to her by the United States’ military and legal systems since she reemerged, in US custody and seriously wounded, in 2008.
The new audio evidence was secretly taped in a social situation last year; children can be heard in the background. It was given, unsolicited, to one of the many lawyers involved in Dr. Siddiqui’s case in the US. The source, whose identity has been protected, told lawyers at the International Justice Network that he had made the tape after a social evening when he had heard shocking things about Pakistani counter terrorism, about the fabrication of evidence, and about Dr. Siddiqui’s disappearance, discussed casually by a senior official. He felt outraged and returned for a second evening with a recorder and got some of the previous discussion repeated. “If it can help anyone I had to do it,” he said to the IJN Executive Director Tina Foster who has represented Dr. Siddiqui’s family since January 2010. IJN are experienced hands in war on terror cases. They represent a number of prisoners in Bagram air base prison in Afghanistan, some of them rendered from Abu Ghraib, Dubai and Thailand by the CIA, as well as several disappeared people in Pakistan.)
The witness is a Pakistani/American and he has been extensively interviewed by IJN’s lawyers, who tell me they are entirely confident of the tape’s authenticity, the source’s account and thus the identity of the prime subject.
IJN’s source says he was introduced by a mutual friend whose home he was visiting, to a man he identified to lawyers at the International Justice Network as Imran Shaukat, the Superintendent of Police for Sindh province.Compelling New Evidence About Aafia Siddiqui’s Detention by the ISI, and Her Rigged Trial in the US, 14 February 2011
Video of senior Pakistani journalist Najeeb Ahmed’s last public statements, before his death by apparent heart attack the very next day, (Aafia Siddiqui’s abduction and handover is a fact) – Urdu
In this video below, Speech by Aafia Siddiqui on “Women Rights in Islam”, Houston 1991, she was 19-years old. Her eyes sparkling, she was eloquent, smart, refined and confident; full of energy and passionately believing every word she spoke. Aafia Siddiqui was absolutely brilliant. She wanted to empower women through the Quran’s fundamental Islamic teachings and help all children achieve their potential through different methods of teaching/learning. All that, everything, was stolen from her by the corrupt, egotistical and inhumane powers that be, and today she’s only a permanently injured, broken and tortured shadow of the former lovely and smart young woman she once was:
What is worse is that her children’s childhoods were stolen in the most cruel unforgivable ways. The separation from their mother for five years (which now has turned into 17+years – and counting – as they’ve not seen their mother once!), indefensible tragedies lasting at least 5-years of relentless suffering and secrets they’ve been threatened and forced to bear no adult should have to bear.
Dr Siddiqui did not make up the terms “Prisoner 650”, “Grey lady of Bagram”, and certainly not the media’s slanderous character assassination and smearing of “Lady Al Qaeda” without anyone corporate media journalist or reporter having the merest clue of the historic facts of Aafia Siddiqui’s unparalleled tragedy.
Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s Case History in English:
In conclusion of this part of Aafia Siddiqui’s unrelenting tragedy implemented and executed by her irredeemably rotten ex-husband, Amjad Mohammed Khan, including the probable death by murder of his youngest child Suleman whether intentional or not, with the opportunistic assistance of Pakistan’s ISI, CIA and FBI, it is absolutely clear, and absolutely vital, that she be freed immediately. Her corrupt trial and sentencing 10 years ago by Richard Miles Berman, Senior US District Judge for the Southern District of New York, to 86-years imprisonment was and is an absolute outrage of appalling mockery of so-called justice made up of incontrovertible lies and farcical innuendo.
Pakistan and the US owe Dr Siddiqui 17+years of her life, and counting, of what was and continues to be unimaginable torture, isolation, pain and suffering, not to mention her health and her psychological well-being, the life of her youngest son, Suleman, and the childhoods and well-being of her two older children. They owe her the countless accomplishments she would have made and raising her children in the future they stole from her. The least these criminal governments can do is bring her home to her family.
Let us help bring Dr Aafia Siddiqui home to live out her life with her children surrounded by her loving family. Because the bright future the once 31-year old had to work and make a difference in children’s lives and help those less fortunate, destitute or victims of Islamophobia and war is likely never to be again.
“We are asked to believe that Dr Aafia, a respectable Pakistani woman in all ways, has links to terrorists from Pakistan; (NO terrorism charges against her)was voluntarily hiding under cover with three children acting as a terror field operative while at the same time leaving her family to believe for five years that she and her three children were dead.
We are asked to believe that Dr Aafia arranged this just after her father died, after finding out her husband cheating on her marriage was disintegrating, and after leaving her widowed mother alone in Pakistan. It is absolutely not plausible and does not even fit the traditional profile by law enforcement of female or male terrorists from that part of the world.”http://aafiamovement.com/
Aafia Siddiqui is extremely frail and in delicate health. Her isolated imprisonment at Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas is endangering the life she has left with coronavirus. The prison where at least 500+ inmates have tested positive and 6 or more have died is an environment in which hygiene and basic precautions are deliberately neglected endangering vulnerable lives.
