Pakistan: The Dr. Aafia Siddiqui Verdict

Teeth Maestro comments on the Dr. Aafia Siddiqui Verdict : “I and many Pakistanis may not actually like the overall decision, but we must draw the line. [..] Being a staunch believer in supremacy of judiciary we must accept this verdict, without possibly burning down the American Embassy in sheer rage.”

    Nothing else we were expecting from USA. Dr. Aafia (although must also be trailed some where in a free court at an independent place) is one out of hundreds innocent muslims who were handed over to United States of America for dollars. Crying for only one innocent woman makes no sense? World media should raise a strong voice for all innocent persons including Dr. Aafia. She and many others and these prisoners are to be given a right of free trail at some where independent place may be in United Kingdom in front of world’s media. Otherwise this decision has no moral value. Americans by nature, never bother, what other say about them. This was a predetermined decision and the remaining was a drama. At least, the western and European media must accept now that they are unable to provide justice to an innocent muslim victim. In no way the decision is acceptable to millions of muslims.

    Alas! Muslims from Pakistan, themselves, whether in govt or in religious parties or in opposition, are strengthening USA. There is no difference in Gen. P. Musharraf, Fazal Rehman, Nawaz Sharif, Altaf Hussain, Laghari, Chaudri, Jamali and Zardari etc, and all these puppets of nation are working for USA. All these puppet faces are the different versions of new world order USA has already issued for Pakistan.

  • it is a matter of utter shame for US and its so called democracy that a woman pakistani national handed ovar by notorious ISI to USA without the knowledge of courts sand then not charged for four years she was being trialed for a case (so called ) which took plqace in afganistan she was raped and her body cavities searched SHAME ON USA AND ITS CAPITALISTIC DEMOCRACY
