Having been around Muslims in my formative years, I knew well that they were not the bloodthirsty, barbaric terrorists that the news media and the televangelists paint them to be.
Siddiqui was reportedly arrested at a relative's home after being tailed from Karachi's Qaid-e-Azam International Airport according to the PTI.
Siddiqui was allegedly being interrogated at an undisclosed location. The reports quoted U.S. intelligence sources, saying Siddiqui was "essentially in the hands of the FBI now" but the sources refused to say whether she had been taken out of Pakistan.
Siddiqui reportedly worshipped at a mosque outside of Boston. The Imam of that mosque told NBC News Siddiqui stored Islamic books there and handed them out to anyone who showed interest.
"It was her, using the word loosely, 'crusade' to try to bring the word of Islam to America," the Imam said, adding that Siddiqui was never violent or radical, and expressed horror over the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
But Siddiqui reportedly left her Boston apartment and said she was moving back to Pakistan after the United States invaded Afghanistan.
The FBI is also seeking to question Siddiqui's estranged husband, Dr. Mohammed Khan. Khan, a Harvard-trained anesthesiologist, was working at prestigious Boston hospitals until sometime last year, when he allegedly moved away too.
Neither Siddiqui nor Khan have been charged with any crime.
