      RAMADAN 1434 A.H.
      (August 1, 2013)
      The Ramadan Campaign for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui
      The Final Phase
      Assalaamu Alaikum (Greetings of Peace):
      The Ramadan campaign for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui has taken on greater significance as a result of multiple media reports regarding the possibility of a prisoner swap between the U.S. and Pakistan.
      We humbly request that in the final phase of this Ramadan Campaign for Aafia, supporters call, fax and/or e-mail each of the offices listed below and politely but firmly request that: (a) the Pakistani government do more to secure the release of its citizen; (b) that the leaders of the other offices and organizations issue a public statement calling for the unconditional repatriation of this Muslim political prisoner (i.e. her release from U.S. custody and return back home to Pakistan) as soon as humanly possible.

      Consulate of Pakistan-Houston, TX

      *** And please call the offices of the national Muslim advocacy organizations – CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MAS, MPAC, and MSA-National, to request that they also make a long overdue public statement on the unjust (and oppressive) imprisonment of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

      A Message of Support from Imam Zaid Shakir
      ... A few weeks ago, a friend of mine, who has been working very hard on the Aafia Siddiqui case, asked me to make du'a for her. That is the very least any of us can do, he emphatically pleaded. Now that there is movement towards her possible repatriation to Pakistan, please pray for her. Her family has been destroyed, her life devastated and her honor rent asunder as a result of her illegal abduction, her detention under false pretenses, her brutal torture, her Stalinesque show trial, and her subsequent detention under inhumane conditions....

      Just scroll down a bit and you'll see the post.  Masha'Allah, great response.
