On September 23rd 2010 Pakistani mother of three Aafia Siddiqui was shockingly sentenced to 86 years in a US prison. She is now likely to endure a harsh prison regime, in solitary confinement, and is unlikely to see her children again until she is eligible for release in 2094 at age 122, if indeed she remains alive then. Lawyers argued that were the Pakistan government to request her repatriation she would be returned with 72 hours. Days before Aafia will spend her sixteenth Eid separated from her family, JFAC have organised a coordinated week-long international action, coinciding with the ten days of Dhil Hijjah, to urge the Pakistani government to exhaust every avenue for Aafia’s release.
Join us in our call to return the daughter of the nation.
"There is no deed more precious in the sight of Allah, nor greater in reward, than a good deed done during the ten days of Sacrifice."
