Six weeks ago, few outside the small circle of civil society activists in Pakistan would have heard of Jibran Nasir — today he is being written about in newspapers across the Americas, in Europe and the Middle East. Global TV news channels have interviewed him. He is suddenly — but quietly — famous. He is a modest but clearly determined 27-year-old lawyer who has done what no other activist has done before in Pakistan. He has seized the moment and acted in such a way as to energise an otherwise moribund civil society that likes to make its protests by Facebook and Twitter.
