NEW YORK -- Members of Pakistani community and those from other minorities, including black Americans and Albanians, on Thursday staged a demonstration in front the U.S. District Court building demanding reform of the American judicial system. Some 40 to 50 people raised slogans against the "bias" against minorities that they said runs through the judicial set-up. Incidentally, today was the day that the court was scheduled to hold a sentencing hearing for convicted Aafia Siddiqui, but it has been postponed till August 16. One of the sponsors of the rally was Pakistan-US Freedom forum, whose General Secretary Shahid Comrade called for justice and fair play for the suffering people. A jury in February found Ms. Siddiqui, the 37-year-old Pakistani neuroscientist accused of trying to kill American military officers while she was in custody in Afghanistan, guilty of all seven counts against her, including attempted murder, after three days of deliberations. She faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison on each of the attempted murder and armed assault charges; life in prison on the firearm charge; and eight years in prison on each of the remaining assault charges.
