Trigger warning: rape and pedophilia
Kami Sid is the first Pakistani trans person to rise to prominence as a fashion model. Kami has started her own organization with the name of “Subrang Society”, where she wants her organization to be a platform known for advocacy of transgenders and other minorities.
All was well before a social media user Minahil Baloch uploaded a status asking people to not support people accused of rape, even if the make it to Cannes. Later she shared screenshots of her conversation with Kami Sid, who is claiming Minahil defamed her as Kami’s film “Rani’ has recently made it to Cannes. Minahil posted
“With a heavy heart, I’m writing this, that i am being threatened by trans model kami sid for making a post about something where i haven’t named anyone… My post has nothing to with her and her making it up to cannes.”
Another activist Shumaila Hussain Shahani supported Minahil by providing details of Kami’s rape case in 2015. She wrote
“This is to inform everyone that Kami Sid has been threatening people whoever speak of the fact that she had been accused of rape by a transwoman. The transwoman who accused Kami and her boyfriend Sid of rape was 18 or 19 when she died few months ago…”
She mentioned how the Kami admitted to paying 10 to 15K as a compensation
“ Kami admitted to having paid compensation in the sums of 10 to 15k to the guru of the transwoman. Kami calls it kharcha, the guru of the victim/survivor calls it compensation for rape.”
Muhammad Moiz, another activist shed more light on the case.
“I am DONE being quiet. This is the Kami Sid rape case… There are still those who facilitated this entire continued abuse, and still patron Kami for their own social capital. You know you are. Shame on you, and may you rot in hell for being complicit in the continued abuse of a minor under your watch.”
He even shared screenshots of the complete case, of how and when it happened
User Aiman Rizvi also shared her part of the story, she wrote
“A few months ago I posted on twitter questioning why KLF was screening a film made by someone who had rape allegations against them. In the days that followed, model and activist Kami harassed close friends to get info on me – finally got my number and shouted at me relentlessly. She threatened me, gaslighted me and hurled accusations at the feminist collective I am a member of as she also went on to threaten other members of that group.”
Rights activist Muhammad Salman also shared screenshots of Kami’s arrest by the Thai Police in Bangkok on the charges of shoplifting and harassing a Thai Police officer.
