ISLAMABAD: Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) Chairman Dr Qibla Ayaz on Sunday said there was a united stance that the ‘guru culture’ in the khawaja sira (non-binary gender) community was a lethal form of exploitation and neo-slavery. In an interview, Dr Ayaz claimed that the ‘guru culture’ was against human rights and it should not be part of any act or rules to be framed for non-binary gender people. Besides urging the parents of non-binary gender children to take their ownership, Dr Ayaz proposed that the government should set up rehabilitation centres to bring these people in the mainstream of the social spectrum. He said according to health experts, non-binary gender people could be operated upon at every stage of life including childhood, or after attaining the age of youth or adulthood, in the light of modern medical science, transforming them into normal and productive citizens of the society except in a few cases.
