              ALLAH BLESS AFIA & PAKITAN & ALL MUSLIMS Plzzzzzzzzzzz

Aafia Siddiqui (Urduعافیہ صدیقی; born March 2, 1972) is an American-educated Pakistani cognitive neuroscientist[6][12][13] who was convicted after a jury trial in a U.S. federal court of assault with intent to murder her U.S. interrogators in Afghanistan. The charges carried a maximum sentence of life in prison.[14][15][16] In September 2010, she was sentenced by the U.S. judge to 86 years in prison.[10][17]

Muslim who had engaged in Islamic charity work in the U.S.,[6] Siddiqui moved back to Pakistan in 2002. She disappeared with her three young children in March 2003, shortly after the arrest of her second husband's uncle, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged chief planner of the September 11 attacks.[1][5][9] It was reported that Khalid Mohammed mentioned Siddiqui's name while he was being interrogated.[12] Siddiqui was added to the FBI Seeking Information – War on Terrorism list in 2003.[1][18] In May 2004, the FBI named Siddiqui as one of its seven Most Wanted Terrorists.[1] Her whereabouts remained unknown for more than five years, until she was arrested in July 2008 in Afghanistan.[5] The Afghan police said she was carrying in her purse handwritten notes and a computer thumb drivecontaining recipes for conventional bombs and weapons of mass destruction, instructions on how to make machines to shoot down U.S. drones, descriptions of New York City landmarks with references to a mass casualty attack, and two pounds of sodium cyanide in a glass jar.[17][19][20]

Siddiqui was shot and severely wounded at the police compound the following day when she grabbed the unattended rifle of one of her American interrogators and began shooting at them.[21] She got medical attention for her wounds atBagram Air Base and was flown to the U.S.[22] to be charged in a New York City federal court with attempted murder, and armed assault on U.S. officers and employees.[9][23] She denied the charges and said the interrogators had fired on her when she had attempted to flee.[24] After receiving psychological evaluations and therapy, the judge declared her mentally fit to stand trial.[25][26] Amnesty International monitored the trial for fairness.[27] Siddiqui interrupted the trial proceedings with vocal outbursts and was ejected from the courtroom several times.[17] The jury convicted her of all the charges in February 2010.[9][14][15][21] The prosecution argued for "terrorism enhancement" of the charges that would require a life term;[10] Siddiqui's lawyers requested a 12-year sentence, arguing that she was mentally ill[16][28]The charges against her stemmed solely from the shooting, and Siddiqui was not charged with, or prosecuted for, anyterrorism-related offenses.[29][30]

Many of Siddiqui's supporters, including international human rights organizations, have claimed that Siddiqui was not an extremist and that she and her young children were illegally detained, interrogated and tortured by Pakistani intelligence or U.S. authorities or both during her five-year disappearance.[5] The U.S. and Pakistan governments have denied all such claims.[19][31]

ڈاکٹر عافیہ صدیقی کے لیے

ڈاکٹر عافیہ صدیقی کے لیے

تمام کفر کی دنیا کھڑی ہے اک جانب
تُو ایک عافیہ تنہا کھڑی ہے اک جانب

میں کیا کہوں تجھے اے عافیہ تُو ناداں ہے
یہ جرم کافی ہے تیرا کہ تُو مسلماں ہے

ترا یہ جرم کہ تُو اس قدر ذہین ہے کیوں
زمیں پہ رہتے ہوئے آسماں نشین ہے کیوں

تری یہ جراتِ اظہار تیری دشمن ہے
بھلا تُو کس لیے امریکیوں سے بدظن ہے

ترے مزاج میں تلخی بھری بغاوت ہے
ترے عمل سے ہویدا تری شجاعت ہے

تجھے یہ عدل ملا ہے نہ یہ عدالت ہے
یہ اہلِ حق سے فقط کفر کی عداوت ہے

سو ظلم و جبر کی طاقت تجھے جھکا نہ سکی
صراطِ حق سے ذرا سا تجھے ہٹا نہ سکی

پہاڑ ظلم کے تجھ پر جو آہ ٹوٹے ہیں
ہر ایک آنکھ سے رہ رہ کے اشک پھوٹے ہیں

گلہ میں کیسے کروں اپنے حکمرانوں سے
نہیں ہے اٹھنے کا یہ بوجھ ان کے شانوں سے

یہ بے بصر ہیں انہیں کچھ نظر نہیں آتا
جو راہبر ہے وہی راہ پر نہیں آتا

نہ اشک آنکھ میں‌باقی نہ دل ہے سینے میں
ہے فرق کیا مرے مرنے میں اور جینے میں

یہ چند لفظ ہیں تیرے لیے مری بہنا
مجھے تو اس کے سوا اور کچھ نہیں‌ کہنا

یہ کربلا کا سفر ہے جو اب بھی جاری ہے
کہ ایک شخص یہاں لشکروں پہ بھاری ہے
