Dr. Aafia Siddiqui – send Postcards / Letters / Pictures & Books

Dr. Afia Siddiqui’s lawyer, Elizabeth Fink, held a press conference recently. The legal team remains very worried about Afia’s physical and psychological condition. The struggle to get her a fair trial continues. Meanwhile, the legal team suggests one small way that we can support Afia – by sending letters/postcards of support to her.

Details on where to send letters/postcards:

AAFIA SIDDIQUI #90279-054
MDC BROOKLYN
METROPOLITAN DETENTION CENTER
P.O. BOX 329002
USA

Please note that all mail WILL be opened and read by the U.S. government. Please do NOT discuss her case, the charges against her, where she has been for the past 5 years, her children, family health matters – and do not ask her to discuss these things with you.

ONLY letters/postcards are permitted. Please do NOT send packages. You can send photographs with your mail, but no other items can be sent by mail. Please observe these restrictions.

BOOKS

You can send books, magazines, and newspapers directly from the publisher. Books can be ordered through Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com.

Afia has requested books with nature photographs. She would also like to receive a daily newspaper (New York Times) and magazines. If you would like to send her any of these items and want to make sure that she has not already received it, please email Sarah Kunstler at sarah AT fkolaw DOT com.

COMMISSARY ACCOUNT

Afia has a commissary account which she can use to make telephone calls and to purchase personal items and snacks. The fastest way to put money into this account is through Western Union. You can do this by telephone, in person at a Western Union location, or online.

  1. At an agent location with cash: You must complete a Quick Collect Form. To find the nearest agent, call 1-800-325-6000 or go to www.westernunion.com.

    Just an FYI.

    This case is very, very slowly developing the kind of “respectability” it needs to be covered in the U.S. press. Now that HRW has issued a statement citing chapter and verse on the treatment of the case (just the current treatment, not the long term yet), and Elizabeth Fink has actually used the words “cruel and unusual punishment” (making the allegation that a violation of the 8th amendment of the U.S. Constitution is in progress) it will get even attention and coverage, previously its been as much as 3 days between when stories got published abroad and when they got published in the U.S. on Ms. Siddiqui.

    Keep in mind that the court venue is less than 1/2 mile from ground zero — the former site of the World Trade Center. They are making sure that this woman looks like a terrorist and is tried by people with personal feelings. Some people in the U.S. have begun to notice big problems with the coverage and are speaking out.

    Also keep in mind that her bail hearing will be right after our Labor Day Weekend, and right in the middle of the Republican Convention, and right before September 11th. They will be trying to play the terror card soon, since the Republicans don’t have a good way of getting ahead in the election polls.

    I’m so sorry that it is necessary, but vigilance and keeping media attention on the case will be needed to get her a fair trial. That isn’t the way things are supposed to be in our country, but that’s the reality with this case right now.

    i am so confused about this whole case, if she is really linked to Alqeada or not? Apparently seems like she is linked to Alqeda if so why the heck we are making plea for someone linked to a world’s no.1 terrorist organization, if she is not then i really feel sorry for this woman may God help her amin!

  • Hokage Janjua |

    Hi Imran,

    Disagree with ur comments and after all that u r still confused and on the top u feel only sorry.

    By the way u are not in that “we” who are making plea.so u dont have to worry.

    U need to do update urself with plenty of basic information otherwise you comments is not of any worth.

    Just for readers couple of points rest on

    1) She was never convicted and if there was any link she should be prosecuted as per law, to all readers genva convention article 3 applies to all prisoners, Taliban detainees, Al-qaeda linked and convicted, need information browse internet i hope u can spare few minutes apart from wasting in writing comments.

    2) Five years of imprisonment,no news about her kids, her present medical condition.

    3) Conviction and prosecution no problem but wht happend with Dr. Aafia, totally wrong, wrong prosecution with out conviction.

    4) Nations stand with their fellow members and she has every right and duty of any Pakistani to help her in any way.

    5)no blame game, see wht u can do.

    Want to know more come and write on the wall of the forum , i will reply.

    u will find me there.

    Thx

    PS Sorry if i am being rude.

    People like Imran, would you sell your own family to the disbelievers? how can any Muslim with any shame even contemplate giving up a Muslim to the enemies of Islam. Furthermore in this case it is a Woman and her three small children. May the curse of Allah be upon the oppressors.

  • imran |

    @hokage, Thanks for the information i got it.
    @Muslim, there is no need to get frustrated, you should have noticed i infact prayed for her that is more important than online petitions in my opinion and no one was talking about selling someone to dirty kafirs,

    peace

    Hokey!!!
    Why is Lord Nazir speaking at a protest in London on the 12th when he got permission to visit the Dr. on the 11th? New York is a 6 hour flight away! The doctor is waiting. Is the Lord more interested in publicity?

    And why so much silence from the Siddiquis. They have 2 missing children. Perhaps the 11 year old can give clues to their whereabouts. Why the silence? Miss Fink needs his testimony to save the Doctor!

    It is utterly astonishing for me to read about some people writing strange things about this whole issue. The lady has suffered immensely without any reason or justification. She is a victim of imperialistic designs. Not even a single charge against her has been proven. The sufferings she endured clearly indicate the flagrant abuses of human rights violation. Mr.Clinton got two american journalists freed because they were americans. You have to be an american to expect justice .

  • Danial Burki |

    @Azhar: Imperialistic designs? Seriously? How was Aafia Siddiqui alone capable of bringing down the capitalist-zionist-hindu-fascist-liberal-atheist-RAW-Mossad-Freemason-CIA-Infidel empire?
