Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani scientist jailed in a Texas prison, has requested Prime Minister Imran Khan for her release, diplomatic sources informed on Tuesday.
The Consul General paid incarcerated Siddiqui a visit on October 9, 2018. During which she made a request for a message to be conveyed to PM Imran, diplomatic sources said.
“I want to get out of prison, my imprisonment in the US is illegal as I was kidnapped and taken to the US, Imran Khan had supported me in the past also. I have always considered him as one of my biggest heroes and wish to see him as the Khalifa of all Muslims. He should be careful of the munafiq around him,” she said.
“All those who criticise Imran Khan for his past mistakes should stop doing that because under Islamic law he is innocent. Even the Sahaba with the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had made mistakes in their lives and when they embraced Islam their past mistakes were forgiven and they became innocent. It is the same with Imran Khan. He had once stated himself that he came to learn about Islam much later in his life. If anyone has doubts on this, I can debate about this.
