Pakistani Ration Packages – distributed to transgender people | Instant News


(MENAFN – Tribal News Network) PESHAWAR: The Bacha Khan Trust, a welfare organization, and Malgari Doctoran, a medical association, on Tuesday distributed ration packages to 40 transgender people in Peshawar.

The ceremony was held at Bacha Khan Markaz attended by Malgari Doctoran provincial adviser and provincial vice president of the Awami National Party (ANP) Saqibullah Chamkani, provincial secretary general Sardar Hussain Babak, president of Malgari Doctoran province, Dr. Haider Ali, Dr. Shaukat Ameerzada, Dr. Mian Iftikhar Hussain and other party activists.

TNN anchor Sobia Khan was also invited to function as a transsexual representative.

Saqibullah Chamkani said during a speech at the ceremony that the party welfare institution worked in the spirit of public service to help decent people in times of need. He said helping the poor segment in this crisis situation because coronavirus was the government’s top priority.

Saqibullah Chamkani said that unfortunately weaker segments, such as transgender people, are not treated well in the community and they face many difficulties especially because of the crisis situation. He said it was unfortunate that transgender people in our country faced discrimination and they did not have access to their rights. He assured that the Bacha Khan Trust and all party activists would support transgender people during difficult times and would not leave them. He said there should not be discrimination with anyone based on gender or other factors.

Speaking on that occasion, Sobia Khan said transgender people are also entitled to the same rights enjoyed by others. Sobia demanded that the government should provide education and employment to all transgenders to enable them to earn a living with dignity.

During lockouts at KP, all types of functions such as marriage, music functions and entertainment meetings have also been banned because transgender people have also lost their source of income. Most transgenders make a living by dancing at weddings and music events, but the function ban limits them in their homes and they have no source of income now.

According to the 6th population census in Pakistan in 2017, a total of 10,418 transvestites live in Pakistan, 913 of which belong to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. However, it is widely believed that the actual number of transvestites in this country is much higher.

Swiss – National Bank snubs calls for more coronavirus money | Instant News


(MENAFN – Swissinfo) National Bank snubs calls for more coronavirus money

May 16, 2020 – 2:29 p.m.

Swiss National Bank (SNB) has rejected demands to increase its payments to help the economy cope with the cost of a coronavirus pandemic.

Member of the governing board Andréa Maechler additional financial contributions will ward off monetary policy.

“We have made our contribution to efforts to overcome the crisis not only by intervening in the currency market,” he told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper in a broad interview.

He said Switzerland experienced a stronger shock than previously thought but the SNB’s role did not change – to ensure monetary conditions through interest rates and foreign exchange rates.

Maechler said the CHF4 billion ($ 4.1 billion) payment to the Swiss government and 26 cantons this year was the maximum that the central bank could estimate. The bank made a surplus of around CHF49 billion in 2019.

A quick recovery from the Swiss economy is impossible, he said.

“The rules of social alienation, higher debt and higher unemployment and lower salaries will mean that more time is needed for the economy to recover,” he said.

Maechler, one of three central bank directorate members, said the SNB was not afraid of inflation or a deflationary spiral in Switzerland despite pressure from a strong Swiss franc and oil price shocks.
