The Supreme Court on Monday directed the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to issue identity cards for eunuchs. During proceedings in the rights for eunuchs' case, the Chief Justice remarked that eunuchs are Pakistani citizens and they are deprived of their rights because they do not have identity cards. The eunuchs informed the court that NADRA is asking for documentation to confirm their gender before they issue the identity cards. The Chief Justice asked the lawyer for NADRA whether such documentation was also required to issue identity cards to men and women. The hearing of the case has been adjourned for three weeks.
