Trans Activist Kami Sid Accused Of Rape And Intimidation By Several Social Media Users
Prominent trans activist Kami Sid was accused of rape and intimidation by several people on the social media on Wednesday.
The story being recounted speaks of a trans woman called ‘Sana’, who commentators are alleging was raped by Kami Sid and her partner in 2015.
Minahil Baloch took to Facebook and said that she was allegedly threatened by Kami Sid over a Facebook post regarding the Cannes Film Festival. “Don’t support rapists even if they make it to Cannes 2019. Rapists don’t belong to cis-gender only. Rape knows no gender,” she had said in the report.
Baloch said that she was threatened by Sid after she made the post in which she had not named anyone. She also said that this was not the first time Sid was threatening a person.
“It’s not the first time she is threatening anyone, I’m making this public and if anything happens to me I want everyone to know it’s kami Sid,” she said.
Baloch also shared an e-mail sent by Muhammad Moiz, who confirmed with Dawn Images that it contained details regarding rape allegations against Kami Sid.
After Baloch’s post, lawyer Shumaila Hussain Shahani alleged that Kami had been threatening people who talked about the rape accusation against her.
Shumaila spoke of the allegation mentioned by Baloch as well, saying the transwoman who made the rape accusation was 18 or 19 when she died a few months ago, adding that she was 14 at the time of the alleged commission of the offense.
