Thousands of people attended the funeral of prominent Pakistani lawyer and human rights activist, Asma Jahangir, in the city of Lahore.

Throughout her life, she spoke out for women and minority rights - and openly criticised Pakistan's military, intelligence and right-wing political parties.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world had lost a "human rights giant".

She was a traitor. She wasnt a secular. Seculars are nice people who respect every religion and give everyone freedom of choice in their acts and speech within law and humanity. She was a pseudo wanna be westernized liberal.
