Karachi, Sep 20 : One day is enough to bring American educated Pakistani neuroscientist and terror suspect, Dr Aafia Siddiqui, back to Pakistan if the government takes the issue up seriously, her sister Dr Fauzia has said.
She was talking to reporters after her arrival in Karachi along with Aafia's son Muhammad Ahmed, who was recently released from custody in Afghanistan.
Dr Fauzia said that they would approach the International Court of Justice if the American courts did not provide a just decision in Aafia's case.
Aafia's mother Ismat Siddiqui, who was also present on the occasion, said, "I don't know about Khalid Sheikh Muhammad and have never seen him or his family members."
She added that her daughter was innocent and did not have contacts with terrorists.
"We will conduct a physical, mental and psychological check-up of Ahmed. I am very happy for his arrival and hope that Aafia and the remaining two children will also return soon."
The Daily Times quoted her as saying that the Afghan Government had not contacted the Pakistani Consulate at the time of Aafia's arrest, which was a violation of the Geneva Convention.
Fauzia said that she did not need to visit Afghanistan "because the government has been looking into the matter and will bring back Aafia's other two children," adding that, "We don't have any links with the family of Aafia's ex-husband Muhammad Amjad, as they had separated before she went missing."
