Aafia Siddique

Aafia Siddique

Finally the cat is out of sac. The latest “victim” of Islamophobia, Eurocentricism, Secular Fascism and other such terms which Pakistani right wing, liberal and confused progressive misuse turns out to be a Jihadi. For months now Pakistani Right wing media have lamented the “innocent muslim girl” the great scientist of MIT, the “good mohajir” girl Dr Aafia Siddiqui, the “daughter of Islam” and “Pakistan” who is being abused at the hands of non muslims. Comparisons were drawn with the mythical story of alleged abuse of Arab women at the hands of Sindhis which resulted in invasion of Sindh by barbaric Muhammed Bin Kassim. The fact was lamented while in those times 17 y old Kassim heard the cry of the “abused” sister and invaded Sindh and spread the glorious message of Islam [with not so glorious genocide of Sindhis], our 17 y old boys are busy in music and dancing whiles the daughter of Islam the innocent naïve girl Aafia Siddiqui is being sexually molested.

The day Dr siddiqui was produced before a court of law In USA I became suspicious of the whole story of “disappearance”. The fact that she was produced in a court of law indicated that US administration had a case. Many others remain disappeared and are not produced in courts. Now Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s ex husband has finally broken his silence and have spoken to BBC. He has told BBC Urdu that the innocent naïve AAfia was an ideologically motivated islamist. She wanted to go to Jihad. Mr Amjad Aziz Khan told BBC urdu that during their marriage he kept trying to convince Dr Aafia Siddiqui that Islam doesn’t allow “extremism” and she should not indulge in extremist activities but she refused. He further told the reporter that Dr Siddique had contacts with Pakistani extremists and terrorists. He named Aamar Baluchi , Aziz Paracha and Majid Khan with whom she was continuously in contact. It is to be noted that all these are terrorists and Mr Paracha was convicted by a court In United States for providing material support to Al Qaidia and was sentenced to 30 years in prison…

Mr Khan asserted that after the 9/11 attacks on United States Dr Siddique kept forcing him to go to Afghanistan and participate in Jihad against United States but he kept refusing. Mr Khan says that these were the reasons their marriage didn’t worked. Mr Khan took Dr Siddiqque to a big Maddrassa in Karachi and consulted with the eminent Mufti Rafi Usmani [Duo bandi /Wahabi cleric] who tried to persuade Dr Siddique that Jihad is not an immediate duty for both of them. Refusing to accept the advice she divorced Mr Khan in few weeks and left with the Kids.

The chilling fact that Dr Sidique was an ideologically motivated Islamist in contact with Al-Qaidia puts a lot of things in perspective, the people whom she identified with have blood on their hands, and they are responsible for heinous crimes against humanity, suicide bombings which have killed innocent civilians, woman and children. The want to bring a system in which there will no human rights and fascist states will be formed. She agreed to all this and was an active supporter of this monstrous ideology. Despite this Pakistani secularists and human rights activists climbed on the band wagon of Pakistani Right wing. The dispassionate interest of Pakistani human rights activists in this should only have been on making sure that Dr Siddique gets a fair trial. But even people like Senator Iqbal Haider became a party to this Jihadi propaganda by engaging in the emotional circus constructed by the family. Pakistani secularists went out of line and ignored the warning signals which were always there.

The fact that this whole story was broken by a person whose mental health itself is under question mark and who is a Taliban supporter they should have been cautious but caution is a thing Pakistani modernists don’t know. Yvonne Ridley could be suffering from Stockholm syndrome or she could be an Islamic fascist herself. Than the section of media and society which rallied to her cause and the degree of response left nothing secret of whose “girl” Dr Siddiqui was. The fact that same people havnt said a word about the fate of “Zarina Marri” shows that all this has nothing to do with human rights but was ideologically motivated.

Not only Dr Siddique left her husband she put the life of her children in danger by taking them with her in Jihad. This is an extraordinary case of neglect of parental duties and putting the life of children in danger. Mr Khan have stated in his statement that she was not kidnapped but was hiding on purpose with the children trying to get into Afghanistan from where she was finally captured. This gets further confirmation from the article written by Mr Farooqi who is maternal uncle [Mammu] of Dr Siddiqque in which he wrote that Dr Aafia Siddque met him in 2008 and stayed at his home in 2008 and told him that she wanted to go to Afghanistan for Jihad.

Now Dr Sidiqque is mentally unfit to undergo trial , she is not going to pay for her crimes or prove her innocence, But Pakistani secularists instead of working on Jihadi agenda should work to give Dr Siddique’s children safe environment. The fact that her sister and mother are close to Jihadi quarters will keep the children constantly under threat of abuse which they suffered at the hands of their mother so their father be given the custody of these poor kids. They have a right to grow up free of abuse.

Now that facts are coming out on Aafia I am suspicious of yet another “Islamist human rights” activist, Amna Janjua who is wife of an ex ISI mercenary who has “disappeared”. While we must always condemn illegal acts of states we must never become a party in crime with these fascists. The BBC urdu report can be reached here.
