Pakistani rights activist Asma Jahangir: 27.01.1952 – 11.02.2018
Thousands attended the funeral service on Tuesday for Asma Jahangir at the city's Gadhafi Stadium – including Jahangir's family and relatives, friends, lawyers, judges, politicians and human rights activists. A Muslim cleric led the prayers. Jahangir was then buried at a more private ceremony later on Tuesday.
Jahangir, who was 66, served as chairwoman of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and was widely respected for her outspoken criticism of militant and extreme Islamist groups. She was also president of the Supreme Court's Bar Association and a U.N. rapporteur on human rights. She was on Time magazine's list of 100 most influential women.
