Along with Iqbal Day, Kashmir Day, Defence Day and what not; Jamat-e-Islami celebrated Aafia Day on September 16th this year. Pasted below is the flyer that was circulated online. What’s most fascinating is that apart from being proclaimed as one of the leading scientists of Pakistan (she has never worked in any scientific capacity in Pakistan, she only came here to buy and sell ammonium nitrate in black market) she is now a Hafiza! If this is the way things continue, chances are that she will soon be declared a Shaheeda even when she is alive and kicking (and if rumours are to be believed – screaming).
Here is to quam ki beti – Baji Aafia. If I had known September 16 was your day, I would have done something special to celebrate you – like looking up some jihadi toyboy.
