Pakistan’s Transgender Bill: How Liberalism Is Being Forced Onto Muslim Society

Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: “The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) cursed the women who imitate men and the men who imitate women.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, 2784)

Pakistan is one of the Muslim countries that is currently undergoing the process of modernization. Despite this, Pakistani Muslims have proven to be very firm in their opposition to ideological attacks by shady and heavily funded liberal organizations. So much so in fact, that these degenerate forces have had to resort to extremely underhanded tactics in order to infiltrate our community.

And it is the recent controversy surrounding the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act in Pakistan that has been most effective in exposing these tactics.

There’s been a lot of confusion regarding this topic, with a number of people being completely unaware about what exactly is going on. In fact, all of this confusion has been generated by the very same shady groups which control mainstream media. They spread confusion with the express reason of keeping us distracted while they further their goals.

Since this is the case, let us first examine what the actual situation is:

The Senate will take up the Intersex Persons (Protection of Rights) (Amendment) Bill 2022, which aims to make changes in the existing Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act 2018, on Monday (September 26).

The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act [Download PDF] was drafted and passed four years ago, back in 2018. The bill included changes that are diametrically opposed to the teachings and values of Islam, in effect threatening to actually legalize homosexuality within the country (this will be discussed in more detail shortly). The bill was drafted by mysterious ‘international experts’ and was passed quite hastily by the National Assembly and Senate.

Curiously enough, not a single mainstream political party representative at the time had stood in opposition to this bill.

Most of the general public wasn’t even aware of any of this. That is, until this year when Islamic groups such as Jamat-e-Islami pointed out how dangerous it is. It had been protested against ever since its inception. However, recently Senator Mushtaq Ahmed of Jamat-e-Islami has formally filed for necessary amendments to this bill in order to keep it in line with Islam, and he even challenged it in the Federal Shariat Court (FSC). These amendments are known as the Intersex Persons (Protection of Rights) (Amendment) Bill 2022 and are yet to legally be passed into law. It is these proposed amendments that have SJWs and trans-activists screeching and seething in the streets of Pakistan.

Several Muslim politicians are now condemning this bill, stating that they had previously been unaware of its implications. One such individual is Senator Mohsin Aziz, a representative for PTI:

During the Senate session today, Senator Mohsin Aziz voiced his reservations with the legislation, saying he was now regretting not opposing the bill when it was introduced and approved in 2018.

“There is a difference between transgender and intersex … we should beg pardon from Allah,” the senator said, adding that transgender persons are not eunuchs (khawaja sira).

Aziz said the amendment should be made to the law “as soon as possible”, warning “the more the delay, the greater the wrath of Allah”.

Transgender vs. Intersex

In order to introduce filth into a society that will not tolerate it (such as Muslims), liberal groups employ the use of ambiguity. They choose to take the path most shrouded in ignorance and confusion, and they use this to gradually manipulate societies into becoming more degenerate and godless.

In this specific case, they took advantage of the ambiguity surrounding the terms transgender and intersex. Several terms are used in Urdu to describe people with ambiguous sexual characteristics, such as Khunsa, Mukhannas, and Khwaja Sira. The latter (Khwaja Sira) was used during the Mughal era to denote castrated males (eunuchs) who would serve as guards. Today however, in Pakistan, it is used interchangeably to describe intersex and transgender people that are part of a mafia of beggars and prostitutes. It is this group that primarily makes up the body of trans/intersex people within the country. They can be witnessed in the streets of modern cities (such as Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi) where such Fahishah is relatively more common (albeit still far less common than anything observed in Western countries).

Now, you may have noticed my classing of ‘intersex’ and ‘transgender’ as being part of the same group, and this is precisely where the pre-existing problem lies.

Intersex people are those who are born with ambiguous sexual genitals and characteristics, but can still be classified as being one specific gender. Their sex is officially assigned very early on depending on a number of factors.

Transgender people, however, are those who imitate the opposite sex, either due to mental illness or for money (through begging and prostitution mafias). This latter group is unfortunately quite rampant within Pakistan, and the problem is that the general public makes very little distinction between intersex and transgender.

If you download the PDF linked above, you can see that in Section 2 (n) of the original bill, a ‘Transgender Person’ has been defined as:

“Transgender Person” is a person who is :-

(i) Intersex (Khunsa) with mixture of male and female genital features or congenital ambiguities, or

(ii) Eunuch assigned male at birth, but undergoes genital excision or castration; or

(iii) a Transgender Man, Transgender Woman, Khawaja sira or any person whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the social norms and cultural expectations based on the sex they were assigned at the time of their birth.

As you can see, these liberal powers have deviously placed intersex and transgender people, interchangeably, under the same umbrella. This is in order to manipulate sympathy towards those who were created by Allah in a certain way and twist it into sympathy for degenerates who imitate the opposite sex. And what does this accomplish?

Section 3 of the act states:

(1) A transgender person shall have a right to be recognized as per his or her self-perceived gender identity, as such, in accordance with the provisions of this Act.

(2) A person recognized as transgender under sub-section (1) shall have a right to get himself or herself registered as per self-perceived gender identity with all government departments including, but not limited to NADRA.

Thus, men and women can legally become recognized as being from the opposite gender!

NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority) is the branch of the Ministry of Interior which makes and provides people with their CNICs (Computerized National Identity Cards). In addition to ID cards, it goes on to also include the person’s driving license and even passport as subject to change. What this means is that if a man were to decide he wants to change his gender to female, he would legally have to be treated as a woman. And because of this, ‘she’ can now legally marry a man and not be considered a homosexual. And thus homosexuality becomes ‘legal’ in a Muslim country.

Homosexuality is explicitly illegal in Pakistan by law. Section 377 of the PPC (Pakistan Penal Code) states:

Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than two years nor more than ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.

Furthermore, Article 277 of the Pakistan Constitution states that:

1) All existing laws shall be brought in conformity with the Injunctions of Islam as laid down in the Holy Quran and Sunnah, in this Part referred to as the Injunctions of Islam, and no law shall be enacted which is repugnant to such injunctions.

It’s extremely strange that, despite these clear pre-existing laws which are diametrically opposed to it, the Transgender Act was still passed.

But that’s not all. It doesn’t simply stop at legalizing homosexuality. The Transgender Act goes on to state, under Section 4, that all forms of discrimination against transgenders is prohibited, and they must not face any form of ‘denial’ when it comes to employment, educational institutions, healthcare services, transport, etc. And then, under Section 5, it goes on to prohibit all forms of harassment as well. It seems like these trans people might now actually have more rights than regular citizens.

While Section 3 legalizes homosexuality, Section 4 and 5 serve to make the situation significantly worse. Since they can’t be refused access to certain places based on their ‘self-perceived gender,’ they can enter places which are meant exclusively for the opposite gender. Due to this, there was a truly bizarre incident which occurred on August 23, 2020. A transwoman (biological man) applied for the job of a lecturer at an academic institution…under the female category. This meant that he would be in the midst of hundreds of women, both teachers and young students—inappropriately interacting with them; staring at them; and doing God knows what else, on a daily basis. These Muslim women would be made to bear this, day in, day out. Naturally, his application was rejected, but this trans used the Transgender Act to take the matter all the way to the Lahore High Court, where it came to be known as FAIZ ULLAH VS. P.P.S.C AND ORS, and unfortunately the following decision was made:

The counsels appearing for the respondents told the Court that they were ready to concede and allow the Petitioner to take part in the recruitment process under the Lecturer (Female) category. On this basis, the Court set aside the order that rejected the Petitioner’s application and held that she will be allowed to participate in the recruitment process.

I mean, what could they do? Dispute the law in court? Think about just how bad it could get if this act was utilized by degenerates to the full extent possible. Men would be able to enter female prayer areas, perform Wudu next to them, even go to female doctors and request check-ups.

What if a male convict claimed to be a transgender in order to be placed into a female prison? And by the way, this is something that has already occurred in the West.

Liberal and anti-Islamic outlets and politicians have rejected outright the notion that this act can be used as a loophole to legalize homosexuality:

Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar on Thursday rejected criticism over the Transgender Persons (Protection of Right) Act, saying that “some friends” had created a misconception that the law had opened doors for homosexuality and was repugnant to Islamic injunctions.

But the sad reality is that this act has been already been utilized for this very reason, and the undeniable proof of this exists in the form of a legal homosexual marriage that took place in Taxila, Pakistan not too long ago. A female teacher named Asma Bibi groomed one of her students, Neha Ali, then legally switched her own gender to male and changed her name to Akash Ali on her CNIC, thus allowing her to ‘legally’ marry this student.

This lesbian marriage started trending on social media, upon which the father filed against it in Rawalpindi High Court. Subsequently, Akash Ali legally reverted to being female and disappeared.

It is shocking to even consider how this incident didn’t occur in a liberal country, but one where the majority of Muslims still strive to uphold Islamic and traditional values.

And this brings me to the silver lining. I was extremely happy to see the response of Muslims towards this degenerate law, both inside and outside Pakistan, both online and offline. Alhamdulillah, the Muslim youth especially took to defending Islam and condemning this Transgender Act very strongly. So, not only did this act expose how liberals use ambiguity to attack Islamic values, but it also brought to the fore the frustration within young Muslims against our enemies. The line between truth and falsehood has become vividly clear. The minority of Muslims in Pakistan who have been indoctrinated into adopting liberal secular values are just that: a minority, albeit a very vocal one and one that utilizes the online space very aggressively to further their ideologies.

And one of those online spaces is YouTube. Liberal Pakistani Youtubers have made it their mission to make liberalism look like the only saving grace for the ‘oppressive’ and ‘backwards’ Muslim lifestyle. They paint this picture of Islam being the reason behind all the problems that, in actuality, modernization has brought about. And of course they’re not brave enough to say it outright, otherwise Muslims would cancel them in a heartbeat. They simply insinuate it, deceptively sugarcoating their words. One of these Youtubers is Mooroo, who has a million subscribers at the time of this article being written. And, related to the subject of this article, he even had a trans on his podcast. But again, the video’s comment section reveals that Muslims are becoming more and more aware of these ideological attacks, and they won’t be tricked into accepting such values. Many of the comments rightfully call out the filth and degeneracy in the video. This often happens, where liberal groups strongly underestimate just how much degeneracy they can smuggle into Muslim societies without suffering severe backlash.

But when it comes to the Transgender Act, it simply boggles the mind as to how a Muslim government can cater and provide protection to a group of people that have been expressly cursed by our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ himself. Muslims should continue speaking against it and protesting. I would even go as far as to say we should vocalize our concerns even more aggressively now and not allow a single iota of ground to be further lost, lest our society further sinks to new lows.

May Allah protect us from such a fate and grant us victory over our manifest enemies. Amin.

Mooroo is a typical western bootlicker. He was spreading evolution, spreading coronoa paranoia, and generally shows all the tell tale signs of a “I wanna move to West” slave.
