As a human rights lawyer, Asma fought for three decades and protected the most marginalised Pakistanis: women, children, religious minorities and the poor with immense bravery.

Asma Jahangir was also nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and was the winner for UN Human Rights Prize in 2018.
Pakistan Twitter remembers Asma on what would would have been her 69th birthday.
Celebrating #AsmaJahangir last birthday 3 years ago today. Time flies but the void she has left in the lives of thousands of people she helped, stood up for can never be filled. There was only one Asma and no one can ever match her fearlessness and integrity. pic.twitter.com/LXZlR5V1mr
