It shares its name with his new autobiographical comic book—co-authored with cartoonist Hubert Maury who was previously a French diplomat in Pakistan—which is released on Wednesday in France and soon in other languages.
It opens with the moment in January 2018 when members of Pakistan's military pulled him from a taxi in broad daylight and shoved him into another car. Detention, torture and death were very real possibilities.
Two strokes of luck saved Siddiqui—convincing the man holding his neck to release him, saying he would go quietly, and noticing that the passenger door was unlocked.
He leapt from the moving car, ran down the busy highway and managed to alert his media friends, swiftly organising a press conference about the attack in order to buy time.
Only after escaping to Paris did he discover he was on the military's "kill list" and could never return.
The graphic novel goes beyond this incident to explain the spread of extremism and war in the region through the story of his religiously conservative upbringing in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
"I chose to tell my story as a comic book because I couldn't have any when I was young," said Siddiqui.
"It will definitely piss off my father. I hope he won't see it."
Not that they have a good relationship. His father's response to the attempted kidnapping was to say he was being punished by God for not praying enough.
It was a classic Romeo-and-Juliet experience that challenged Siddiqui's own faith, after his family opposed his marriage to a Shia girl he met at university. The divide between the Sunni and Shia branches of Islam is a fraught and often violent faultline in Pakistan.
