After torturing for five years and depriving her of her children; America has pronounced Dr. Aafia Siddiqui guilty of the act she never committed. Expecting justice from the American administration, who has even left behind the pharaoh and Halaku Khan in its cruelty, is equivalent to deceiving oneself. Despite the contradictory statements of the witnesses, jury pronounced the chaste daughter of Pakistan, Dr. Aafia, guilty as charged. Thus Dr Aafia could be sentenced for 60 years for an attempted murder in which not a single person was even wounded rather it was Dr. Aafia who was shot in the stomach. Along with America the traitor rulers of Pakistan are equally responsible in this brutal and vicious crime. Nobody dared to ask as to how come Dr. Aafia reached the notorious Bagram jail from Pakistan in the first place. On whose order was she kidnapped along with her three children? Where was she for the past five long years? Where are her remaining two children? Pakistani democratic rulers are as deaf, dumb, blind and treacherous slaves to America as their predecessor dictators. Where have all those disappeared now who depicted the rosy picture of democracy? This injustice is the pinnacle and the hallmark of the Capitalist democratic system where innocent are immolated to appease the majority.
The injustice with Dr. Aafia is nothing new; infact the ordeal of the caged sisters in Abu Ghuraib may be even worse and heart breaking. But even today our rulers act like hunting dogs and assist their master in arresting Muslim sons and daughters to hand them over to these wolves. Hizb ut-Tahrir wishes to inform the Ummah that Aafia Siddiqi and similar other sisters can not be retrieved from these Kuffar by merely requesting and begging the enemy. For this we need to do what Muhammad Bin Qasim and Mu’tasim did to avenge their sisters i.e. Jihad through the professional armies of the Khilafah. Today also we need to mobilize our forces by establishing the Khilafah. Then we will see how America does not set our brothers and sisters free from their dungeon in order to free its captured soldiers from this region. Hizb calls to the armed forces of Pakistan; for how long will you see the dishonoring of your sisters? Rise and protect the honour of your sisters and liberate them from the squalid captivity of these Kuffar. Accept martyrdom in this cause; by Allah this is the success of this world and the Akhira (Hereafter). You know this is not possible unless these treacherous rulers are sitting over your necks. So provide Nusra (support) to Hizb ut-Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah and remove these traitor rulers along with this kufr system. This is the only practical and swift method to bring Dr. Aafia home.
Today, Hizb staged protest demonstrations in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar against this brutal and malicious judgment. The demonstrators carried banners and placards inscribed with slogans such as: “O Pak Army! Avenge Aafia, Establish Khilafah, end US presence”. They demanded from the Armed Forces of Pakistan to provide Nusra (support) to Hizb ut-Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah so that organized Jihad could be started to stop the brutalities against Muslims.
