KU becomes the country’s first varsity to enroll a transgender person in M.Phil!

As being reported, the Karachi University for the first time added the transgender column along with male and female columns in the admission form this year.

Following the development, the very first transgender person has given admission to KU’s LLM course.

Nisha Rao has become the country’s first transgender varsity student enrolled in the Master of Laws program.

Nisha Rao is a Pakistani transgender lawyer and activist. In 2020, she became the first transgender law graduate in Pakistan.

This is a major development in the field of education for the transgender community.

Supreme Court allowed transgenders to claim a third gender on their national identity cards in 2009.

The parliament just passed a law in 2018 recognizing transgender people as equal citizens and protecting them from discrimination and violence.
