An advertisement I saw over the internet and then I followed up the news. I think either she got stuck in some agency radar or she might be another victim of crime against women.

News is given below:

A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information in the search for a  Johnson County College student who was reported missing Friday.

Dozens of volunteers worked throughout Sunday in the effort to find  19-year-old Aisha Khan. The search began at midday Friday when she was reported  missing from the University of Kansas Edwards campus in Overland Park.

“We need everybody to be thinking about Aisha all of the time,” said her  uncle Adil Sheikh, one of many out-of-town relatives who have traveled to the  Kansas City area.

Late Friday morning Khan called and sent text messages to relatives saying  that she had slapped an intoxicated stranger who was harassing her.

A short time later her sister who had gone to the campus at 127th Street and  Quivira Road to give her a ride found her unattended book bag and cell  phone.

Besides the volunteet effort, an Overland Park police spokesman said Sunday  that about 30 officers were involved in the investigation.

About 15,000 flyers have been printed and volunteers have been passing them  out and canvassing the neighborhoods surrounding the campus.

Khan was studying for finals at the Edwards location, but she is actually a  student at Johnson County Community College.

Besides the efforts on the ground, Khan’s uncle said they are utilizing  Facebook and Twitter to disseminate information. The Facebook page “Help Find  Aisha Khan” had accumulated more than 5,500 “likes” as of Sunday evening.

The family is offering the reward for information leading to her whereabouts,  he said.

“We are appealing for leads and cooperation from the community,” Sheikh  said.

Khan is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She has brown eyes  and dark brown hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow and black shirt, black  sweat pants and a black head scarf. She may have also been wearing glasses. She  was wearing a black jacket beneath a longer black and white coat.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS  (874-474-8477).

To reach Tony Rizzo, call 816-234-4435 or send email to  trizzo@kcstar.com.

DNA test proves teenage girl as Aafia’s daughter

April 10, 2010 1 comment

The mystery sourrounding the teenage girl found in front of Dr. Fauzia’s house is finally resolved. After mixed reports it is finally confirmed by the family and government
that the girl is really Aafia’s daughter Maryam.

Congrats to the family and hopefully Aafia’s youngest son Suleman will also be handed over. It is also reported that Maryam was held in Bagram jail which also confirms that Aafia wasn’t arrested in Ghazni alone or some say with her son. In fact she was abducted with her 3 children (2 boys and 1 girl).

Aafia turns out to be a credible witness–>DAWN

By Masood Haider

NEW YORK: Pakistani neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui took the stand on Thursday afternoon to testify in a court where she is facing the charge of trying to kill American servicemen while in custody at Ghazni (Afghanistan).

While denying the attempted murder charge, Dr Aafia told the court that she was concerned she was going to be transferred to a ‘secret’ prison by the Americans and was trying to slip out of the room when she was shot.

“I’m telling you what I know,” she said in response to a question by Assistant US Attorney Jenna M. Dabbs.

“I walked towards the curtain. I was shot and I was shot again. I fainted.” Much to the surprise of her defence team, Dr Aafia turned to be a ‘credible witness’.

She was allowed to take the stand after Judge Richard Berman issued her caveats making her aware of the pitfalls and the dangers of such a move. Her defence team was literally scared that she could turn out to be her own worst enemy given her past record of outbursts.

She had been thrown out of the court several times after being admonished by the judge not to speak out of turn.

But on Thursday she surprised them all and remained calm and composed.Dr Aafia again denied picking up an M4 rifle and taking a shot at American soldiers and instead maintained that she was scared and wanted to run away as she heard conversations from behind the curtain during her incarceration at Ghazni.

She said as she peeked out of the curtain she was shot and injured. She also accused the FBI agents who questioned her time and again of threatening to hurt her children in order to scare her.

At one point she became so chatty that she was asked by the judge to just answer the question instead of elaborating them.

She also denied prosectuion’s claim that she was trained in rifle shooting, saying: “I took physical training but not to shoot a rifle.”

She said she was shot two or three times by one person in the room and then shot by someone else. She also said she did not believe any US soldier in the room would be irresponsible enough to leave his weapon lying around.

A group of FBI agents and US soldiers had travelled to Ghazni to interview Dr Aafia after she was allegedly found with materials that included hand-written notes referring to a “mass casualty attack” in the US and listed several landmark locations, including the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge, prosecutors have said.

Vigil held for release of Dr Aafia & others–>The Nation

The way things are going in USA courts, it seems Aafia is not going to get a fair trial. The real issue of her relationship with Al-Qaeda will not be addressed because FBI doesn’t have any evidence and the charges put on her are real baseless. Anyone with even minor sense of justice can see the shallowness of the fabricated evidence.

She is charged of snatching a weapon and trying to shoot American soldiers .The real great thing is that in the process she herself got shot.

This is all bullshit and ridiculous. Is American army an army of eunuchs? A weak woman snatches a gun and tries to shoot them?

There is still no clue about the 2 missing children of Aafia.

It’s also interesting that even after so many years (She was abducted in 2003 from Pakistan by USA and Pakistani agencies which was also reported at that time in local and international media) FBI has come up with such a lame case and even in that they didn’t have enough evidence to connect her with Al-Qaida or terrorist activities so this question was put aside by the court.

Yvonne Riddley Story

This is an interesting story of  Yvonne Riddley converted to Islam after being captured and released by Talibans. It is a lesson for so called civilized nations like USA who treat women prisoners like animals and rape them in custody. Even uncivilized Talibans were more noble in their treatment with the women.

Now just compare it what civilized people did with an educated woman , a mother of three children.

Its a shame for so called civilized world:
