Humans are messed up specie, these thoughts usually run in my mind but since last two days they are haunting me more because I am very angry and also frustrated at how humans can care so much about a TV series character dying tragically than a real human fighting for her life.

Hodor is trending but Alisha is not even getting the well deserved support and coverage. Isn’t it so ironic?

Alisha, who was a Khyber-Pakhtunkhawa Trans Action Alliance’s coordinator, was shot two days ago in Peshawar and when she was taken to Hospital no proper care was provided. Instead of treating a critically injured patient the staff was debating over which ward to admit her in whether male or female ward? The helpless friends and family had been protesting then onwards on social media and did gather some support to forcefully get her treated but she had to be admitted into a private room after being transferred in that state from various wards for one whole day in that critical state.

The update from yesterday night on the page of K-P Trans Action Alliance was that Alisha had been rushed to ICU and is under critical condition. But I woke up to the dreadful news this morning that she lost her fight and passed away. From that moment onwards I have been feeling depressed and I have this rage that I don’t know who to pour onto.

My heart goes out to the friends and family of Alisha and I hope she rests in peace.

And this does leave us with a bucket full of questions. That when will the Government take notice of this? Will the main stream media give it proper coverage or just pass over it like it never happened? Is Trans community not worthy of their well deserved rights? Should we really treat people according to their gender and sexuality?

 


Have you ever thought that we Pakistanis grieve more on what happens in Syria, Palestine and France than what is really plaguing our society? Youth of Pakistan is not even properly reacting to it, the ones who are always glued to their phones and following trends. Why is Hodor’s tragedy more alarming and heartrending than Alisha’s struggle to achieve proper status as a citizen of Pakistan?

I know that this grave loss won’t put enough pressure on our whole system which is very lethargic and unconcerned with the matter. But then at the same time I really hope change comes, because everyone deserves basic human rights regardless of their sexuality.

  1. We Pakistanis, as a whole, don’t give a damn about humanity, but when we do we make sure it in no way gets out of Facebook.
    Be it for our own nationals or the sufferers of some other country. We’re proudly an insensitive nation where we’d still exhort over the matter of Alisha’s sexuality and that the hospital staff was did no wrong in delaying her admission to the wards.

  2. یہ واقعہ انتہائی افسوسناک ہے اس کی جتنی بھی مذمت کی جاۓ کم ہے ، میری تمام ہمدردیاں ان مظلوموں کے لیے ہیں جو اپنے خاندان ، سماج ، قانون کے جبر کے ہاتھوں مر مر کر جی رہے ہیں . میں سوشل میڈیا کے تمام دوستوں سے اپیل کرتا ہوں کہ وہ علیشا کے ایشو کو اجاگر کریں . اس ایشو پر آواز اٹھانے سے ہی پاکستان کی لاکھوں علیشاوں کو جینے کا حق دلایا جا سکتا ہے .

  3. I have been browsing online more than three
    hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and
    bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will be much more
    useful than ever before.

  4. He’s additionally all the time telling me our marriage is not figuring outt but then the subsequent scond he’s
    telling me how much he loves me. I’m so confused and
    honestly his constant accusations are making me
    numb and I don’t want anything to doo with him anymore.

  5. Appreciating the commitment you put into your site and detailed information you present.

    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed
    material. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked
    your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
