Hasan Ali, CSM, Why Nayyab Ali puts her life on the line to protect trans Pakistanis “Ms. Ali founded the school (Khawaja Sira Quran School) as a space where members of the Khawaja Sira – a centuries-old term that has come to describe transgender and third-gender communities in Pakistan – could come together and learn the Quran in a safe environment. It also doubles as a shelter where transgender women can stay if they are left with nowhere to go, something Ms. Ali describes as a frequent occurrence.”
