“The meaning of who was there, the march through the streets of Lahore she loved so much the number of women attending her funeral against the islamists’ hope that none could be there because of who has control of cemeteries these days in Pakistan, all that makes her passing a great encouragement for Pakistani women and us all to keep the struggle towards justice, women’s rights and democracy and secularism which in Asma’s heart were indivisible from one another.” (Ariane Brunet, Quebec).
