Maulana Maududi's son to lead funeral prayers of Asma Jahangir
LAHORE - Pakistan’s prominent human rights lawyer Asma Jahangir took her last breath at the age of 66 on Sunday after suffering from a brain hemorrhage in Lahore.

Jahangir was the first woman to become president of the Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan, besides heading the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. She was known for her persistence on advocating for issues including minorities’ rights and women's rights.

Her funeral prayer will be offered on February 13 (Tuesday), a family source said. The prayers will be offered at Lahore's Gaddafi Sta­di­um at 2pm

Media reports quoting family sources say the funeral prayers of the deceased activist will be led by Jamat e Islami (JI) founder Abul A'la Maududi’s son, Syed Haider Farooq Maududi.

The reports say that Asma Jahangir’s family has long terms with Maududi family, adding that the deceased lawyer had been spotted at the residence of Haider Farooq Maududi.

Maududi’s son has expressed negative remarks against the JI, founding by his father and currently led by Sirajul Haq.
