Fans humbly request to dedicate the Ms. Marvel series to the late Farah Khan (1994-1999) of Toronto, ON and Aqsa Parvez (1991 - 2007) of Mississauga, ON. Farah Khan and Aqsa Parvez were Pakistani Canadian children whose lives ended tragically.

The Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan connection;

Like the talented human behind Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan's character, Iman Vellani, both Aqsa Parvez and Farah Khan immigrated from Pakistan to Canada, settling in the Toronto area.

"Growing up with little to no representation, I needed that." - Iman Vellani

For a show like Ms. Marvel and Iman Vellani's character Kamala Khan to be seen by youth, girls in particular, of the Pakistani diaspora is a reflection of hope and joy. To dare to dream beyond limits. For them to live their authentic lives.

We would love to see the Ms. Marvel series honour the legacy of these young souls. 

Reasons to consider this dedication in their honour:

* There is no legacy. Both Aqsa Parvez and Farah Khan died at the hands of their own families. They deserve to be remembered for so much more. Let's honour them in such a beautiful way so their memory doesn't fade into oblivion. Aqsa lived in her Mississauga home with 12 people, including her mother, father, and adult siblings. None of them intervened to save her. Farah Khan's murder was pre-meditated by her father prior to her arrival in Canada. She lived a short 5 months in her adopted home country of Canada before her passing. 

* Ms. Marvel is the symbol of empowerment and strength for Pakistani girls. Aqsa Parvez was her own superhero, and she fought for her rights and life right to the very end. She advocated for herself and her safety. Ms. Marvel shows our community, that girls have the right to autonomy, the right to live in a loving and safe home, the right to self-expression, the right to live as their authentic selves, and the right to live a dignified life.


The deaths of five year old Farah Khan and sixteen year old Aqsa Parvez were cases of femicide that shook the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) community. These tragic incidents took place before, and at the cusp of social media. Let's create a legacy for Farah and Aqsa so they are not only remembered for their deaths, but for the people they were.

Farah and Aqsa, like all children, deserved to live a dignified life.

Today, Farah Khan would be 28 years old, and Aqsa Parvez would be 31.

"'Her brothers and sisters didn't condemn the killing either. Usually in sentencing someone in such a crime, victim impact statements are entered as evidence of what the victim's family has suffered.

The Crown entered none.'"
