Dr Fauzia to join sit-in against drone attacks


LAHORE – Dr Fauzia Siddiqi addressed a press conference on Sunday along with Insaaf Student Federation (ISF) President Hassaan Niazi and Ibad-ur-Rehman’s brother Sajjad-ur-Rehman, who was killed by a car which had come to help Raymond Davis escape.
Dr Fauzia announced that she would be part of the sit-in against drone attacks. She said that Pakistan’s embassy in the United States threatened the lawyer who appealed against Aafia Siddiqi’s sentence. Sajjad-ur-Rehman said that the Pakistan Muslim League-N led government never cooperated with his family.
He said that the government was asking them to be silent on the issue and gave $20,000 but they could forgive the Americans responsible only if Aafia Siddiqi was released. ISF office bearers said that they were hoping that Dr Fauzia would lead the students going to Peshawar in order to block NATO’s supply line.
