|Rumors of Aafia Siddiqui death unfounded||
Rumors of the death of Aafia Siddiqui, for now, are not true, but how long before rumors become reality?
Disturbing rumors circulated recently suggesting that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui has died are mercifully not true. However, the family is asking supporters of Aafia, despite the pain and relief they have felt over the past few days, to use this opportunity to remember their sister and daughter.
Aafia's sister Fowzia Siddiqui told CagePrisoners' Yvonne Ridley:
"The rumors have been very distressing and my mother heard about it before we could verify that Aafia was unharmed. She has been unwell, but now that the prison has confirmed that she is alive, we've asked for a direct telephone call to at least speak with her.
"The rumors began in the UK, and I would ask people not to spread any more rumors about Aafia. If they hear something, they should contact us through the family website first. But hopefully, they will use this opportunity to download our Independence Day postcard and mail it to her now."
