China again declines to reveal details of financial assistance to Pakistan

PTV makes 'begging' faux pas during Imran Khan's address in Beijing as Pakistan seeks Chinese aid Screen grab

Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who was sentenced to 86 years in prison by a NY court in 2010, has sought Prime Minister Imran Khan's help to get out of prison.

According to diplomatic sources, Siddiqui wrote a letter to PM Imran Khan which she handed over to Pakistani Consul General during his visit to the prison.

"'I want to get out of the prison, as my imprisonment in the United States jail is illegal", she writes in the letter.

Besides agreeing to strengthen the all-weather strategic partnership, both the countries have also agreed to expand the CPEC projects and establish strategic dialogue mechanism between their foreign ministers, she said. He should be careful of the munafiq around him. "He had once stated himself that he came to learn about Islam much later in life", she stated.

Dr Aafia Siddiqui was indicted by a NY federal district court in September 2008 on charges of attempted murder and assault, stemming from an incident during an interview with the U.S. authorities in Ghazni, Afghanistan - charges that she denied.

First Muslim woman elected to House of Representatives
Rashida Tlaib on Tuesday became the first Palestinian-American elected to the US Congress when she won Michigan's 13th district. She will succeed the first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, who vacated the seat to run in Minnesota's attorney general race.

She was sentenced to 86 years in prison at the Federal Medical Centre, Carswell, Fort Worth in Texas.

Aafia's sympathisers claim that she was arrested in Pakistan and handed over to intelligence agencies who then transferred her into U.S. custody.

An official Ministry of Information order seen by Reuters said the ministry had withdrawn the services of Hasan Immad Mohammadi, who had served as acting managing director of Pakistan Television for just a matter of weeks.

In June, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal had said Pakistani consul general in the U.S. held a meeting with incarcerated Dr Aafia Siddiqui where she complained of the mistreatment by United States authorities.

Prosecutors in NY had called her an al Qaeda sympathiser and sought life imprisonment.
