ISLAMABAD The speakers at a meeting urged the people from all walks of life to start a massive movement by holding seminars, rallies, public gatherings, and distributing pamphlets in and outside the country for the safe return of Dr Aafia Siddiqui as the government has failed to do anything. The event had organised by the Association of Business, Professional and Agricultural Women (ABPAW) to extend a strong support for Dr Aafia Siddiqui. People from all walks of life including NGOs, civil society representatives, lawyers and businesswomen attended the event. Fauzia Siddiqui, sister of Aafia Siddiqui, narrated the plight and whole story of Dr. Aafia to dispel the misconceptions spread by the western media and misreporting. She said she did her PhD in Education and she was not a medical doctor or scientist. She said Dr Aafia is going be sentenced on August 16 but so far the government has done nothing in this regard. She said Hilary Clinton is coming to Pakistan on a visit and the government should put forward its demands during her visit. She said that the government should demand her release on a state level but so far it is reluctant to do so. She said in front of her the Prime Minister asked Rehman Malik and Babar Awan that they had done a futile exercise by spending millions of rupees on lawyers that were hired by the state and by doing this it justified the US trial, which was illegal. National President of ABPAW, Shamim Kazmi, urged all the women to stand up saying that it was high time that people should join hands all over the world to address the issues of missing persons and for the safe return of Dr Aafia. She said pamphlets should be distributed in all languages to make aware the people about the plight of Dr Aafia and for the mobilisation of the people to start a movement for her release. Amna Masood Janjua, Chairperson Defence of Human Rights, said she was a house wife and did not know about all such matters but circumstances has compelled her to come out of home and struggle for her rights. She said we are protesting for our concerns since long and have learnt that the people in power have no interest in our problems and are not taking the issue of the missing persons seriously. She also demanded of UN and humanitarian organisations for taking immediate notice of the matter and exerting pressure on govt so that missing persons could be recovered.
