2011 IJN Report Download Aafia Siddiqui:

 

More broadly, there can be little doubt that Dr. Siddiqui’s repatriation to Pakistan from the United States would do a great deal to repair some of the damage done to the diplomatic relationship between the two nations. Until then, the International Justice Network will continue to expose the truth and seek justice for Dr. Siddiqui and the thousands of other prisoners who have been unjustly imprisoned as part of the U.S. government’s “global war on terror.”

The protesters slammed the government’s indifference towards the issue and chanted anti-US slogans. They described Aafia as the daughter of the whole Muslim world and said every Muslim country should raise its voice to get her released.
In a written letter presented during the protest, Aafia’s mother appealed to the US and Pakistani governments to make possible the release of her daughter before Eid, a move that could also stable the US economy and strengthen the relation between the two countries.

Justice Minister sends threatening letter to prominent Shi’ite leader | Facebook

Justice Minister sends threatening letter to prominent Shi’ite leader | Facebook | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Sheikh Issa Qassim, a leading Bahraini Shi’ite has received a letter from Bahrain’s Justice Ministry, telling him to ‘tone down’ his speeches.

The letter accuses Sheikh Issa of both inciting violence and dividing the country.

Nothing could be further from the truth....

Sheikh Issa has been a long time proponent of peaceful protest and dialogue, for which he has been very well known. Far from dividing people, he has urged Sunni participation in protests and has made many speeches promoting unity of people.

The letter also expresses anger at Sheikh Issa’s denunciation of the coming by-elections that are due to take place at the end of September. This seems to be the real reason for the threatening letter, as the Bahraini Government are keen to capitalize on the absence of much of the opposition in the elections.

However, these elections cannot be seen as legitimate. The election comes after eighteen opposition MP’s resigned in February 2011 in protest at the treatment of demonstrators.
