Zeenat Shahzadi is a 26 year old Pakistani journalist who was kidnapped off the streets of Lahore on August 19th, 2015, and has been missing ever since. The brazen, daylight kidnapping of a young female journalist was the first of its kind in Pakistan.

Join us as we gather on the second anniversary of Zeenat's kidnapping to recognize her bravery and to call on the Canadian government to intervene with the Pakistani government, urging them to immediately order a full investigation of Zeenat's kidnapping, and to prioritize her safe return home.

Zeenat’s family and the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan believe Pakistan’s Special Forces are responsible, because she fearlessly pursued an explosive story the spy agencies didn't want told.
