Remembering & Celebrating the Life of Asma Jahangir

Several events have been organised for her in Pakistan and elsewhere. I was present at the well-attended event titled “Celebrating Asma Jahangir”, organised by human rights lawyers, peacemongers and friends of Asma at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi last Thursday, 15 February 2018.

Tapan Kumar Bose, Secretary General, South Asia Forum for Human Rights, shared his story of meeting Asma for the first time in an official event in Vietnam in early 1990s where he and Asma were members of the Indian and Pakistani delegations respectively. After the customary allegations and counter allegations about Kashmir during the event, members of the two delegations met for dinner.
