US Delegation to Visit Pakistan to Support Dr Fawzia Siddiqi
By Abdus Sattar Ghazalli


Sacramento, CA: Pakistan-American Democratic Forum (PADF) is sponsoring the visit of a four-member US delegation to support Dr Fowzia Siddiqui who is contesting election from NA-250 (Karachi) as an independent candidate.

The delegation includes: Cynthia McKinney (a six-term former Congresswoman from Gerogia), Dennis Kucinich (a former US Representative, serving from 1997 to 2013), Ako Abdul Samad (Iowa State Representative since 2007) and Prof Peter Erlinder (Lead Defense Counsel for the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda).

The US delegation, scheduled to visit Pakistan from May 7 to May 13, will not only support Dr Fowzia’s candidacy but also highlight the issue of Dr Aafia Siddiqui. Pakistan American Democratic Forum (PADF) chairman Dr Agha Saeed has assured Dr. Fowzia full support of his organization in her election campaign. He said that Dr Fowzia embodies the Free Dr Aafia campaign and her election campaign would ineluctably place Dr Aafia’s case on Pakistan’s electoral agenda and automatically internationalize this contest.

Dr Agha Saeed believes that since Dr Fowzia will be running as an independent candidate hence every political party would be morally and politically obliged to support her.
