KARACHI: A girl has approached Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday seeking permission to undergo sex change surgery.
Through her lawyer, the girl told the two-member bench of the court that she is experiencing physical changes in her body for some time.
After I consulted a doctor on this matter, I was advised to undergo a sex change surgery, the girl told the court.
The petitioner further said that after doctor’s suggestion, she has been going through a mental agony considering the difficulties she will have to face after the sex change.
The biggest issue will be the realignment in my National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) record and in other official documents in which I am mentioned as a girl, the petitioner said.
The hearing of the case was adjourned until March 8.
In the similar case, in 2008, Naureen Aslam had approached Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking permission of sex change surgery.
