PESHAWAR: The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has introduced a new policy for registration of eunuchs.

Under the new policy, the eunuchs having unknown parents will be attested by their Guru (leader). A spokesman for NADRA said the decision has been taken under an order of the Lahore High Court (LHC) keeping in view the difficulties faced by eunuchs in their registration. The eunuchs will be divided into male, female and unisex groups after which they will be registered without any hitches.

Farzana Jan, a leader of association of eunuchs, appreciated this step of the government. Farzana said Guru is like parents of the eunuchs and they are fighting for the rights of eunuchs.
