Aafia handed the letter to Pakistan’s Consul General in Houston Aisha Farooqui who visited her on October 9, according to the foreign office.

“I want to get out of prison, my imprisonment in the US is illegal as I was kidnapped and taken to the US, Imran Khan had supported me in the past also. I have always considered him as one of my biggest heroes and wish to see him as the Khalifa of all Muslims. He should be careful of the munafiq around him,” Aafia wrote.

In September 2010, Aafia Siddiqui, the female Pakistani scientist convicted of attempting to kill US military personnel, had been sentenced to 86 years in prison.

Prosecutors in New York had called her an al Qaeda sympathiser and sought life imprisonment.
