Pakistan, being a Muslim country, has no room for same-sex marriages in society. Under Section 377 of Pakistan’s penal code, homosexuality is not explicitly mentioned, but “carnal intercourse against the order of nature” is punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment for two years to life. Whereas under Pakistan’s Sharia law, homosexual acts are punishable by corporal punishment (whipping), imprisonment, or death.

However, recently a girl impersonating as a boy had allegedly married another girl in Rawalpindi. Both the girls are residents of Taxila.

After the news spread and the father of the bride, Neha, found out the reality, he filed a petition in the High Court Rawalpindi bench. Neha’s father has claimed that Asma Bibi had changed her name in her CNIC to Ali Akash and got married in court.


The father has asserted that Islam doesn’t allow same-sex marriages, and the court has summoned the girls on the 15th of July.

However, the other side of the story is quite different. Ali Akash, Neha’s husband, has claimed that he married Neha after changing gender as he never felt like a man in his previous body.
In a recent interview with a media channel, Akash shared that the couple lived peacefully until Neha’s aunt made a false case against them.

“I have always been a boy by nature, but I never changed my gender,” said Akash. “I married Neha Bibi legally and as per Islam’s rules that too after undergoing surgery and adopting a masculine life, for which I have all the evidence,” he further added.
