The hostage situation has nothing to do with Siddiqui’s family
In a statement, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Mohamed Siddiqui’s legal team explicitly stated that the Siddiqui family was not behind the Colleyville synagogue attack.
CAIR-Houston Council President John Floyd and legal counsel to Aafia’s brother have made it clear that the hostage-taker is not Mohamed Siddiqui.
Siddiqui “is not even in the same area where this terrible incident is taking place,” the statement read.
“We want the hostage taker to know that Dr Aafia Siddiqui and her family strongly condemn this act and are not on your side.
“This attacker has nothing to do with Dr Aafia, her family, or the global campaign to get Dr Aafia justice.
“On behalf of the family and Dr Aafia, we urge you to immediately release the hostages and turn yourselves in.
The CAIR-Houston offices have represented Mohamed Siddiqui since 2004.
