Gratitude, love and prayers from Dr. Aafia’s family.
It is August 1. We have three more days, midnight August 3 in Washington DC, to reach 100,000 signatures. We are so very close.
If we reach our goal this petition will be presented to President Obama for review. President Obama may choose to act on it immediately. He may decide to look more closely into the case. He may not choose to act at all. We are hoping and praying that his sense of compassion and justice will guide him and allow Aafia to come home.
We have not had any meaningful contact with Aafia for years, even the brief phone calls have now stopped. We are told she is in 'solitary lock-up'. The Muslim holidays of Ramadan and Eid passed by, and we have no way of knowing how she is.
Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, our daughter, our sister, our mother, the "Daughter of the Nation" has been treated shamefully by the American legal system. After eleven brutal years this petition represents a chance to end the nightmare.
Those of you who have already signed the petition have our gratitude love and prayers. If you are reading this and you haven't signed it, please, it takes only a few minutes.

The struggle continues with the prayer that our efforts be accepted and Allah Bless and guide us all towards a successful result. We pray for justice for oppressed worldwide.
All who have signed and helped us May Allah keep you and your loved ones safe, you have given us hope and a renewed trust in humanity
United for peace, justice, freedom
The family of Aafia Siddiqui.
