TN, Kerala add to our eunuch woes
If the men in khaki are helpless against the eunuchs, it is easy to imagine the plight of the common man. To make matters worse, the eunuch count is on the rise in the city.
Akkai, a senior coordinator for Sangama, an NGO, told BM that in 2009 the number of hijras in the city was about 2,000. “It has certainly gone up after the Delhi High Court’s judgment on Article 377,” he added. “It has encouraged more people to embrace their gender identity. Many of them consider Bangalore a safe haven. We have noted an increase in the number of migrants from Kerala and Tamil Nadu. We cannot give exact figures, but I would say that the eunuchs’ population is going up by about 20 people every month.”
The activist condemned the eunuchs’ attack on the constable. “Legal action should be taken against the offenders. There is a difference between begging for money at traffic signals and attacking someone for money.”
