Resource Guide to Correct Misinformation About Dr. Aafia Siddiqui to the Media and Public
This resource aims to provide media outlets and the public with more information on the case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. Since the horrific hostage situation at Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, there has been a considerable increase in attention given to Dr. Siddiqui's case. Media outlets have an ethical responsibility not to omit critical information and facts to have their coverage be fairer and more balanced to educate and inform the public. That has not been the case over the last several days, and this resource guide hopes to provide media outlets and the public with more facts.
In a statement, the coalition of attorneys, activists and organizations in the Free Dr. Afia Movement said:
“We strongly condemn the hostage-taking at Congregation Beth Israel in #Colleyville, Texas. We implore the hostage taker to immediately release all hostages and turn himself in. We want to verify that the perpetrator is NOT Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s brother. Whoever the assailant is, we want him to know that his actions are heinous and wrong. Her case must be addressed through the courts of law. We implore you to immediately release the hostages and turn yourself in.”
