The transgender community claims that false info about the bill has been spread and that labeling those who fighting their separate identities homosexuals amounts to injustice toward community.
This is in contrast to the country, where the Transgender Rights Bill is, on the one hand, being criticize by some religious parties and has been describe as an attempt to promote homosexuality in the country.
Pakistan’s National Assembly has passed Transgender Rights Act that transgenders tend to be protected, given access that is equal education and basic medical care, and because of the freedom to state their particular gender identity on the across the country identity cards and passports along with the directly to vote, run for office and same sex marriages .
Some religious groups, however, think that this bill is really an attempt to legalise homosexuality in the country.
Senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan of the Jamaat-e-Islami is contesting the law before the Federal Shariah Court. He thinks that everyone who wants to register themselves as transgender in the Nadra database should be required to provide a medical certificate.
The PDM leader and close friend of the government, Maulana Fazlur Rahman, claims that the transgender bill is “a rebellion against the Quran and Sunnah.” He said, “The Pakistani Parliament has no power to pass laws that violate the Quran and the Sunnah, and such laws are pass covertly, when there is no public discussion about the issue.
