“Yesterday night I and my boyfriend was attacked while returning from a dinner party with friends. The only reason was to get so violent for those men was they wanted to touch me all over and talk to me. And when I and my boyfriend opposed to what they were doing, they got so angry that started hitting both of us.
Those men believed that as a trans person I can be treated and handle any way they want and I should not be opposing it. Fact remains same that whether you are female or feminine or or anywhere near where you express your femininity will be attacked in this patriarchal society.
I have no idea where are we heading towards with so much of hate for minorities.”

The Logical Indian Community’s strongest condemnation goes out to the attackers of Ms. Rudrani Chettri Chauhan. The attack further highlights the stains of patriarchy in our in-equal society. The Logical Indian requests the government to bring the guilty to justice and enact a tough legislation to empower and safeguard the transgender community against such attacks. Our unflinching support goes out to Ms. Rudrani, the transgender community and the struggles & challenges they face.
