7. The Most Notable social media post is of Zaid Hamid Zaman, who is the Defense Analyst he clearly termed her and her father the traitor and the people used by India.
It will be injustice with #AsmaJahangir if she is buried according to Islamic sharia laws, which she hated so strongly & fought all her life to block in Pakistan.
She deserves a liberal secular Cremation & then her ashes dispersed in India. Lets give her a parting gift….

8. Zaid Hamid Zaman continued…
Tell me, how will you feel if you hear that Altaf Hussain has died ? Joy, relief, satisfaction that a traitor & monster responsible for so much bloodshed has gone to hell. Same is for #AsmaJahangir too. She was female version of Altaf!
Do we doubt how God will treat Altaf? NO.

8. She was a source of inspiration for some people…
Asma Jahangir, was why I decided to study law as an undergraduate degree in the first place. Her passing is a tragic loss for Pakistan. A woman of substance, strength and courage – she was a hero to so many of us. May she rest in peace. #AsmaJahangir

9. Another person defined the irony of this whole story in a well descriptive way…
Asma Jahangir spent her entire life attacking Molvis & undermining the state, now her funeral prayer will be led by a molvi while her fangirls want a Pakistani state funeral for her
Doesnt get more ironic than this #AsmaJahangir pic.twitter.com/w83cPGl49f

Nevertheless, of what people think, we as a Muslim and a believer believes that her matter is now up to Allah Almighty and we should not consider ourselves the one to decide her fate, whether she is going to Jannah or Jahannum.
