Human Rights Activists Encourage Massive Turnout for Sentencing of Dr. Aafia Siddiquie

Filed under: From the Desk of Imam Mahdi Bray — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 1:47 pm

On Thursday, September 23rd at 8:00 am  at the Federal Court House, 500 Pearl Street in Manhattan, New York City, in Jugde Burman’s court, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui will be sentenced in the US Federal district court of New York.  Human rights and legal advocates are making an urgent appeal that people attend the sentencing of Dr. Siddiqui on Thursday. Although this case has captured worldwide attention, there has been little focus on this case by the American media and minimal attention given to the case by the American Muslim community.

Despite the opinions of legal experts that Dr. Siddiqui’s conviction is seriously flawed and her kidnapping and detention is a grave violation of human rights and international law, few in America know about the circumstances involving Dr. Siddiqui’s conviction. Two Muslim organizations, The Peace Thru Justice Foundation and The Muslim Legal Fund of America have tirelessly worked in the defense of Dr. Siddiqui and to bring to the American public’s attention crucial information surrounding this case. Check out the piece below.
