The hijras in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh represent a terribly marginalised Minority community, to the extent that they are even ignored by human rights activists. In this book, the author argues that their situation can be compared with that of trans-sexuals in the West, both in terms of the complications regarding marriage, Adoption and Sexual status. Whereas in the west, in the last few years, the national courts of several Countries as well as International Judicial Forums, such as the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights, have focussed on the human rights of trans-sexuals and have delivered several important judgements with respect to them, nothing has been done with respect to their South Asian counterparts, namely the hijras. In this book, the author has made a unique Comparative Study of the human rights asbuses and Legal problems faced by members of the 'third Sex in the West and India. Relevant and important documents, not available elsewhere, concerning sexual minorities have also been included in the Annexures.This book is an Essential reading for human rights activists, social scientists, those connected with the Law and all the concerned citizens.Printed Pages: 216.
