Asma Jahangir – A Champion of Champions of Democracy & Human Rights.
Pakistan has today lost one of its bravest and most courageous leaders. No other person of her fraternity has stood for the Human rights and challenged the bigotry of institutional corruption, political nepotism, use of religion to sow seeds of intolerance to advance agendas and illegal use of force by institutions, as she did with her struggle for human rights. Her resolute and steely character never minced words to speak her mind on the most challenging and difficult topics to encounter. No doubt people of this country have lost their voice, the champion of the champions of democracy and Human Rights.
PILAP expresses condolences on the sad and untimely death to the family of Ms Asma Jahangir and to the oppressed people of this nation. May her soul rest in eternal peace. Ameen.
