As a person who find in the media from time to time I respond pleasantly surprised by the fact, is immersed, that Pakistan, as it is still working on some very basic.
In those days, for example, we create need the space, the air from the flow of information and / or speculations about a hundred points of interest, including general elections, elections to the Senate to reach instead aggrandising self-proclaimed “memo gate matter, too far court, contempt for the opinion of the Court, in the case of Switzerland – and only these days.
Pakistan is a failed state, a sponsor of international terrorism, a country for a suicide mission? Hunger shows, industries and infrastructures in the process of closing the long arm of the law hardly in a position to answer many – many say, of his own creation – the challenges? Yes, it seems.
And yet … the poor souls in the service of the traffic police, the difficult and thankless task city still there every day and tried some order into the chaos, electricity, gas, or CNG to create over longer periods, but choked sewers in my street will be resolved when I called the hotline KWSB, food prices may be higher than ever I remember, but the vegetables are always happy seller, a home delivery and a little Chon.
It is a hymn to predict and rely on the straw, a country that is collapsing under the weight of their own sins, and will be considered but must appear. Behind the scenes, the indescribable sound and fury, that life in this country, there are things as they should, and can, in spite of considerable obstacles.
If there is anything Pakistani experience shows that is the perspective. If there is to learn a lesson that is between the lines and look behind the headlines to read. While most of us feel that change in Pakistan, and all can live but nothing changes, there is not an ounce of hope that is in the idea that changed behind the scenes.
It is therefore with some excitement as a surprise that I respond when an advertisement appeared in the press 3 January was for me.
The public announcement of the government of Sindh informed us that he was trying hard, the Supreme Court of the first December (CS) for the implement to the “conservatives of all divisions in Sindh against the descendants were to ownership is [sic] of movable and immovable property of the eunuchs and the entries in the register of transfer of rights. Despite the tireless efforts of Assistant Commissioners, these properties are still being found.
“However, it would be on display, many new NIC eunuchs with the help of the social welfare officers. Under these circumstances, the Government of Sindh decided to publish the matter in the day … with instructions on how to eunuchs Deputy Commissioner’s welfare officers in the district in support the recognition of their assets and the settlement of their basic rights. ”
Human identity and the legacy of “eunuch” (a term that goes to Pakistan and applied indiscriminately to all transvestite hermaphrodites) is initially surprising in a country where the rights of women, children, or for that matter, not ordinary mortals, are very difficult. But the first reaction is the fact that people are people, regardless of age or gender.
If the struggle for women’s rights and against child labour must in any significant way, of course, must numerically by a similar effort for a small population, but much more marginalized and discriminated against and abused accompanied more. And it seems to be the case.
This short period was not just flash in the pan a couple of other news is confirmed. On 5The newspaper reported in January that the Punjab government has asked all its administrative services, use to create reports about the right to work “eunuchs” with the service standards of these positions altered the preference given to submit the target community. The circular was also motivated by the need for the next hearing of the case report of the SC. The court, at the same time, he heard the Assistant Secretary of the Election Commission of Pakistan said that the field staffs were carried out at the voice recording, too. At the hearing held in Islamabad on the same day, the SC has asked the authorities to provide documentation for the issuance of identity cards to “eunuchs” and their inclusion in the electoral roll.
(This is Pakistan, but no story is complete without an element which is weird. The Advocate General of Balochistan briefed the SC on January 5 that is the community centre founded, “eunuchs offer.” To “entertainment” to the centre, whose construction in soon be launched, costRs87m.
Clarification of this point is necessary: ??the will of the offer of entertainment in the community centre while necessary, is not necessarily made available by the Government? Or are the most urgent needs, such as for example needs to be professional and technical training, “so it must be provided by the government, we can only hope that not another one of the monuments, which will remind us of the sporadic – this - are-you-think – The folly of the politicians of the country, the available examples are enough).
You can about how many actual benefits achieved by these reforms argue. Much will depend on what the members of the community know what their rights by the state and more how they are able to pursue these rights are recognized. However, slopes can not be denied that all this depends on the availability and recognition of the rights that the first point, from which all others would follow.
To draw a parallel, real-life situation of “eunuch” in relation to inheritance and the vote is not unlike many women who are equally poor. But under the eyes of the state and the right to inherit and women can vote.
With these changes, relatively behind the scenes, because they do not have to attract the attention of the media on the political circus, for example, can offset the increased profits.
