Free Dr. Aafia Siddiqui!
Shahid Comrade, with cap, secretary general of Pakistan USA Freedom Forum, and Dr. Maha Hilal, executive director of National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms, stand in front of the White House as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with President Barack Obama on Oct. 22.
The demonstrators’ signs call for freedom or repatriation for political prisoner Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, who was kidnapped with her three children in Pakistan, held in secret detention and tortured by U.S. forces. She was finally sentenced in 2010 to 86 years in U.S. prisons. Other demands included “Account for missing and disappeared in Pakistan” and “No secret deals on Afghanistan.”
