#JusticeforJulie a trans activist unlawfully arrest by Islamabad Police

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

A petition for the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of the unlawful arrest of Julie Khan, a trans activist and an internet sensation for her social commentary series called The Naked Truth. 

Reportedly, on August 10, Islamabad Police barged into Julie’s home, manhandled and arrested her. Her lawyer Niazi alleges that she was arrested on false charges and the Islamabad Police has admitted the the FIR was pressurising tactic used to silence Julie. Naizi also believes that that a mafia group coerced the police into arresting her. 

We demand the Chief Justice and Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari take immediate notice of this situation and start a dialogue about police brutality against the trans community. Most importantly, we demand immediate release of Julie from Adiyala Jail where she is locked up with men, despite the legal gender status being different.
