    This Act provide for the punishment of offences against transgender person only six months to 2 year even in rape case also. Why? THIRD GENDER PEOPLE ARE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS. Why so called members of parliament as well as president can’t understand this thing….. please grow up…. read Article 14,15, 21 & 44 of Indian Constitution
