Security leaks have brought to light a plot to kill human rights defender Asma Jahangir - former UN Special Rapporteur for Religious Freedom and the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan.


Without increased protection and help from the Government of Pakistan, Jahangir’s life is in danger.
