“Kill All Transgenders” – Participant on Pakistani Reality TV
A contestant on Pakistan’s version of Roadies bluntly expresses her transphobia openly on national TV saying she hates hijras which is a South Asian word used to blanket-describe eunuchs, transsexuals, transgender, transvestites, cross dressers; it is also widely used as a derogatory term to offend effeminate men. She goes on to say that hijras are useless and are a burden on the society and should be killed when they are born. She even said she would “finish” if she ever gave birth to such a child.
The show’s presenter and producer Waqar Zaka who is equally controversial for addressing the taboos on his show slammed the participant calling her the biggest disappointment ever.
