Another day in Pakistan that proves that we are not the backward monsters we are made out to
Kohinoor Television aired its regular news bulletin with the first ever Transgender News
Anchor of Pakistan.
Just a few weeks back Marvia Malik became the first transgender model to walk the ramp in
Pakistan during the annual Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) and now she has
become the first Transgender news anchor on Pakistani TV.
Of course her journey has not been easy as she was abandoned by her family at a young age and she
put herself through most of her higher education.
But in her own words “I have lost count of the numerous calls and messages I have received from
media outlets world over, just yesterday I did a few Skype interviews with media channels in India
and everyone’s talking about it”.
The love and acceptance she has been shown shows how we as Pakistanis have the potential to
break our stereotypes and move forward and embrace those who are being violated against.
She is just one case out of the multitudes of Transgender children across the country who are being
discriminated against. However her courage and ambition has brought about a wave of acceptance
and awareness across the country which should be the beginning of our fight against violating the
rights of these kids.
She sums it up in a nut shell when she says “I don’t want us to be considered as third gender but as
Muslims and Pakistanis.”
Let us all understand the crucial need of protecting the transgender community of our country and
let’s all step forward to educate the parents of transgender kids that these children need to be
nourished and protected. Not abandoned and discriminated against!
