51

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F, an ally of the government and part of the Pakistan Democratic Movement, challenged the Transgender Protection Act, 2018, in the Federal Shariat Court on Friday.

In the petition, the JUI-F requested that the act be declared against Shariat, adding that “no law can be made against Quran and Sunnah in the country”.

The FSC fixed the party’s application for a preliminary hearing on Monday, October 3.

On September 26, the Transgender Act Amendment Bill 2022 related to the protection of transgenders had been presented in the House by PTI Senator Fauzia Arshad and was then handed over to the relevant Standing Committee by the Chairman Senate.
