SC directs NADRA to include eunuchs in gender column
The court gave the verdict after hearing a petition regarding the registration of eunuchs across the country.
Talking to the media after the hearing, the president of the Shemale Association of Pakistan, Almas Boby, expressed gratitude to the court for granting the community their rights.
Nadra in December 2010 had agreed to add a third option under the gender category in identity card forms.
Nadra had said that the applications forms for CNICs would contain the third option of ‘Khwaja sara’ (transgender) along with ‘male’ and ‘female’.
