“The American court acquits Dr Aafia Siddiqui” The ticker blinks on TV screens is followed by the screen flashes “Breaking News; The US court releases Afia Siddiqui” “The justice has been made by the exemplary American judicial system.”
The News anchors inform us that Pakistani Ambassador to the US Mr. Hussain Haqqani will hold a press conference shortly. At the same time, the tickers read “Quid-e-Tehreek Altaf Hussain has praised Americans for making justice and freeing the daughter of Nation” The news anchors announce that MQM chief has made a phone call to Aafia’s mother which is to telecasted on TV channels live. The audience listens to Altaf Hussain. He is followed by messages from President of Pakistan, Mr. Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister, Yousaf Raza Gilani, Interior Minister, Mr Rehman Malik, chief of Pakistan Muslims league (N) Mr. Mian Nawaz Shareef, Secretary General Pakistan Muslim League (Q) Syed Mushahid Hussain. Besides, shorts statements of different national leaders are displayed at TV screens, all congratulating Aafia’s family and praising US judicial system.
After a while TV channels started three to four footage at the same time, the one covering Dr Aafia’s resident in Karachi, the second one showing different leaders praising America. The third footage shows footage of press conferences by Afia Lawyers and Hussain Haqqani live from New York. All member of MQM’s Rabta committee have gathered at Aafia’s residents showing their speaking abilities in front of camera. Besides, dozens of local leaders of all political parties are trying to stand beside Mrs. Asmat Siddiqui, Mother of Afia Sidduiq and her sister Dr Fauzia Siddiqui, who are ready to give their views on Aafia’s Acquittal.
Fortunately or unfortunately we couldn’t see all this, not because our political leadership had gone to bed that late night but the US jury had found Dr Aafia “Guilty”, and no one would opt to speak against the United State which has Washington, the de facto capital of Pakistan. Some two days before I was telling my wife how would the house of Aafia looking. After listening about the verdict she reminded me that I was wrong. “But I didn’t say that the verdict will be against Aafia, now when the verdict has changed, we wouldn’t be able to see the waving colorful flags of different political parties inside Aafia House. But yes Altaf bhai is very much there, although he is Altaf Shakoor, president of Pasban”, I relied.
Not to mention the response of our political leadership was disappointing but the reaction of Aafia Mother and Sister’s was not just encouraging but a milestone for the struggle of those who are working against the terrorist and bastard American nation’s inhuman and terrorist policies. Mrs. Asmat Siddiqui informed us that the “it [the verdict] is the beginning of the end of America”. No doubt its Allah’s willing that HE chose Aafia Siddiqui for exposing the bias judicial system of America. Allah (SWT) does his work if even we do nothing but don’t we have any responsibility?
Our responsibly is to protest peacefully against the cruel and brutal policies of the United State of America which will soon turn into distributed States of America InshaAllah, but this is not our prime responsibility. Our prime duty is to get red of their agents who have held the reign of power in our Muslim countries. Nearly all rulers in the Muslim world, Pakistan being the worst, are more characterless than pimps; the later at least have the courage to declare what they are. But these pimps don’t open their mouth when their “father” do anything negative.
Although, my words may be harsh, but there is nothing final at my end. Instead I want to start a debate which should result in consensus that what practical steps we can take to get our sister Aafia back home and convict the bastards who are in any level responsible for handing over to America. The first thing we can to is to declare their sister A.W.Patterson as persona no grata, who is directly mentoring the crusader armies inside Pakistan under diplomatic cover.
