Former Senator Farhatullah Babar on Monday challenged the verdict of the Federal Shariat Court that struck down the Transgender (Protection of Rights) Act 2018. The civil appeal filed before the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan by Farhatullah Babar and Sherkan Malik through Supreme Court Advocate Khwaja Ahmad Hosain who is also representing Farhatullah Babar in the Supreme Court in another case involving the internment centres in Pakhtunkhwa province. The appeal contends that the Shariat Court verdict is “discriminatory, illogical, unlawful, unconstitutional and not founded on any sound legal or religious reasoning and is beyond the jurisdiction vested in the Shariat Court by the Constitution”.
