KARACHI – The sitting and past rulers declared Dr Aafia Siddiqui innocent daughter of the nation and now it is the responsibility of Prime Minister Imran Khan to play his role for her early repatriation to Pakistan, says head of a party.
In a statement here Tuesday, Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) President Altaf Shakoor said if the sitting rulers also preferred the US dollars and their vested interests their fate would not be different from the fate of the previous rulers. He said that recently the prime minister office received two important letters. The first letter was from Dr Aafia Siddiqui, who appealed to the government for assistance. However, the government did not reply. He said the second letter was from the US President Trump who sought Pakistan’s help in talks with the Taliban. He said this was a golden opportunity for our government to seek repatriation of Aafia, but the rulers wasted it despite knowing the sentiments of Pakistani nation on this issue.
