Hostage situation has ‘nothing to do’ with Siddiqui family

In a statement, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Mohamed Siddiqui’s legal team stated plainly that the Siddiqui family is not behind the attack on the Colleyville synagogue.

CAIR-Houston Board Chair John Floyd and legal counsel for Aafia’s brother made clear that the hostage-taker is not Mohamed Siddiqui.

Siddiqui “is not even in the same region where this horrible incident is taking place,” the statement reads.

“We want the hostage-taker to know that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and her family strongly condemn this act and do not stand by you.

“This assailant has nothing to do with Dr. Aafia, her family, or the global campaign to get justice for Dr. Aafia.

“On behalf of the family and Dr. Aafia, we call on you to immediately release the hostages and turn yourself in.

The CAIR-Houston offices have represented Mohamed Siddiqui since 2004.
