Dr Fauzia siddique, on return from a very successful tour to South Africa where thousands of people thronged and pledged support for Dr Aafia’s release endorsed by Nelson Mandela, visits the Missing persons camp. Dr Fouzia plans to stay at the camp with the aggrieved families for the next couple of days.
Everyone is united behind the slogan ‘Injustice everywhere,’ she remarked. At the camp Dr Fouzia and several Aafia Movement supporters reassured the families that their struggle is one. Dr Fauzia put out the heart rendering questions: Where is Suleman? The youngest of the missing persons, as there are reports of a 10-day-old baby was also picked up.
There is now evidence and confession of abducting and handing over of innocent little children. This is the worst form of human coercion to mankind.
Dr Fouzia said in its brief history: “My country has endured more than its share of difficult times, but we always maintained our dignity, and because of this even those with whom we had disagreements respected us.
Our dignity evaporated when the dictator of the previous government began to sell our brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, sons and daughters, and even our young children to his foreign master. He even writes in his autobiography how much money he made from this disgraceful practice.
The respect from other nations that Pakistan had earned during six decades of struggle vanished overnight.” She said, “I am not here for the sympathies of the leader or politicians; I am not here for any blame game.
I am here to show solidarity with the families and my sister Amna Janjua. Her struggle is my struggle and together we will continue to chant ‘let our people go’ till we are heard.
I am here for results. Why is Suleman not accounted for nine years? Is he alive or dead? If dead who killed him? Do the politicians, leaders, army generals, commissions etc have any answers? Who will bring back the missing years of childhood, missed love and affections, nurture and motherly embraces? Raymond Davis can kill our people and terrorise the whole city and he is left to talk free, USA can create the May 2 incident and ridicule the entire armed forces, yet ours leaves me speechless.
Nato kill our soldiers and majors in cold blood, and doctors to be convicted for high treasons are parts of underhand deals yet the innocent daughter of the Nation is languishing in jail uncovering the biggest travesty of justice but shamefully those who sworn to protect us and uphold the constitution can only but. I don’t know what to say.”
