This Malaysian Muslim man had undergone a sexual reassignment surgery in Thailand in 2009.

According to a press report, Mohd Ashraf Hafiz Abdul Aziz’s father, Abdul Aziz said that he was sad when some quarters dismissed he and his wife as evil parents for having a son who had effeminate tendencies since he was a toddler. He added that their son Ashraf did not have male characteristics as he was growing up.

As reported in New Straits Times, transgender Ashraf said: “Like it or not, I will follow through with my case until I have exhausted all legal avenues. People may wish that I could just shut up or die, but I just want to live a peaceful life.”
