Event Details & Reservation

Asma Jahangir was a human rights activist and lawyer who fought her entire career for vulnerable and marginalized individuals and communities. From defending a freed bonded labour untouchable (Dalit) peasant from Thar to a Christian victim of fake blasphemy charges in the remote areas of southern Punjab, she changed the lives of millions of voiceless individuals. She was a hope for the families of missing people in Balochistan and disappeared victims of Sindh. She opposed all kinds of state oppression at the national, regional, and international level.

Come join us for the launch of the book ‘Our Asma Jahangir’. This book brings together the writings of several people from all over the world and is a tribute to the great Asma Jahangir’s life and achievements. Her contemporary comrades, legislators, friends, admirers, followers, and students have written pieces in attempt to eulogize her crucial contribution to human rights advocacy, peace, interfaith harmony, and social justice.

We will have a panel discussion which include speakers: Justice Majjida Rizvi, Uzma Noorani, Kaiser Bengali, Mohd Ali Shah, Munner Memon, and Javed Qazi.

Date: Friday, May 11th
Time: 05:30 – 07:00 PM 
Place: Faraar Gallery, T2F
Entry: Free, but donations are requested so we can continue to bring you programs like this
