US citizen Nadrat named her victory in marathon race after Dr Aafia Siddiqui

A US-based Pakistani social activist Nadrat Siddiqui has named her third position in the 48th marathon race in Texas after Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistan prisoner detained in a Texas jail.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, she said that her race was once again for the innocent political prisoner sister Dr Aafia Siddiqui who is detained in a prison in Texas.

Nadrat is a resident of Texas and she is known in the US as a Muslim marathoner girl from Karachi.

She said she was one of the activists working for the release of Dr Aafia. She participated in the marathon which lasted for four hours and eight minutes and Nadrat got the third position.

She said, “Today I ran the Fort Worth Marathon, my 48th full marathon”. She asserted, “Dr Aafia’s confession had been obtained through torture. An allegation in which no one was killed or injured”.

Nadrat also tweeted on Tuesday that she had participated in the 26.2 miles of the Fort Worth Marathon yesterday to call attention to the case of Dr Aafia Siddiqui.

She also said in her fresh tweet that she had handed over a petition to Warden Michael Carr at FMC Carswell for Dr Aafia Saddiqui’s release on humanitarian grounds.
