Social media users have demanded justice for Transgender Julie Khan, who was recently imprisoned in an allegedly fabricated case.
Julie was arrested and sent to prison by the Islamabad police three days ago, One of Julie’s friends, Farah, revealed that her fellow transgender, Rosy, was tortured and beaten. “Julie, Sumaira, and I raised our voice against why she (Rosy) was beaten. So In retaliation, the group who tortured Rosy registered a case against us,” she claimed.
Julie recently became a social media sensation after her videos went viral on social media where she talked about social issues, discrimination her community face in society. However, following her arrest, people on social media have been demanding justice for her and calling her arrest illegal.

Please speak up for Julie she’s being kept in jail with MEN. They put a trans woman in a MEN’s jail for a crime she did NOT commit.

JUSTICE FOR JULIE! We hope justice will be served today at Julie’s hearing and critical voices will not be silenced. Note:we’ve been informed that Julie wasn’t kept in a Male prison but I’ve kept that bit to highlight the routine police brutality against TG. #JusticeForJulie pic.twitter.com/SDvChspXyL

Julie’s words held power. they imprisoned her. this is exactly what happens to everyone who’s valiant enough to challenge the state. what vexes me is that a change is nowhere to be seen no matter how much we broaden the horizon. #JusticeForJulie
