My Name is Noreen Leghari, I belong from Hyderabad. My father’s name is Abdul Jabbar who is a Professor in Sindh University. I am 2nd year MBBS student at Liaquat Medical University.

Through this video, I wish to make it clear that I was not kidnapped by anyone but went to Lahore on my own free will. Ali [her husband, who was killed in the shootout] was involved in planning of terrorist activities from a long time, he was involved in planning suicide bombings and kidnapping of intelligence officers.

He was accompanied by a boy named Abu Fauji, who was also a part of these terrorist activities. We were planning to target a church on Easter Sunday for which our organization provided logistical support. On 1st April, we were given two suicide jackets, four hand grenades and a few bullets for the purpose. I was tasked to carry out suicide attack inside the church. But, on the night of 14th April Security Forces raided our house.
