He said, “your education is not in your degrees, it’s not in your good clothing, it’s neither in your work, but it’s reflected from your personal behaviour and I haven’t seen any community more civilized than trans community, we call men and women by their names. We don’t call them with mocking names, you call us Khusra, Heejra, Meetha, Fruit, Thanda_ we never call you from bad names”
