Many people had never heard of Aafia Siddiqui before Saturday when a guy claiming to be her brother held people hostage at a Colleyville synagogue and wanted to speak with her. Siddiqui was the first female terrorism defendant caught after 9/11, and she was convicted in 2008 on charges of attempted murder and assault against US officers and employees in Afghanistan.

According to ABC News, a US official stated that the hostage-taker in Colleyville claimed to be Siddiqui’s brother. It’s unknown whether the man is linked to Siddiqui biologically. Those who have supported her cause have referred to her as their sister. According to the Express Tribune, a daily English-language newspaper headquartered in Pakistan, a member of the Pakistani administration has advocated for Siddiqui’s release from US custody and back to Pakistan.

Aafia Siddiqui History

Aafia Siddiqui is the only woman to be placed on the FBI Seeking Information Terrorism list. She and her children were kidnapped in Pakistan by this time. She reappeared five years later in Ghazni, Afghanistan, where she was arrested by Afghan authorities and detained by the FBI for questioning. Siddiqui purportedly informed the FBI she had gone into hiding while in captivity, but afterward recanted her statement and claimed she had been kidnapped and imprisoned.

 Her story has been described as a “flashpoint of Pakistani-American tensions” and “one of the most mysterious in a covert war rife with secrets”. In Pakistan, her arrest and conviction were viewed as an “attack on Islam and Muslims” prompting widespread protests in the United States. She was seen as particularly dangerous as “one of the few alleged Al Qaeda associates with the ability to move around the United States undetected, and the scientific expertise to carry out a sophisticated attack”, according to some sources. In two instances, ISIS has offered to trade her prisoners: once for James Foley and once for Kayla Mueller.
