The Drowning Edge… (Neglected Human)

By: Rimsha Jamil


We are living in the world, where we claim to be civilized and to have feelings for miserable people and minorities of the society. But in reality our society provided us with the evidences that we are much worse than animals in some aspects. We are more hypocritical people, our inner self is totally different from our outer self. We live in patriarchal society where even being a feminine is not tolerated, what to talk of ‘third gender’. They are the most vulnerable and marginalized minority in Pakistan. The gender which do not even given the basic human rights of nationality, education, job, national or ethnic origin, freedom of speech or any other status. Most people do not even consider them as a part of their community .Even their own parents abandon them, their parent considered them as a sign of shame and disgrace. So massive rejection are faced by transgender.
It is very humiliating for us. Being a part of Muslim society we all know Allah Almighty is the creator of every human being, then who we are to disrespect and ignore them. They are transgender not by their own choice then why we not accept them.

As a society , we need to realize that this is not merely a war that these individuals have to fight they are human being, just like us and they deserve all the basic rights .Their voices have always been crushed under the burden of typical stereotypes. The need of the time is to raise voice for them and to ensure their basic rights in order to make their lives less painful.

After a long period of immense struggle by transgender side government has tried to incorporate them by giving them a right of identity by issuing them NICs. Court also has declared recently that transgender are a citizen of Pakistan and all rights are given to them, including the rights in inheritance, job opportunities, free education and health care. However, their rights are guaranteed on paper but in reality they do not have these rights in practice.
