In the graphic novel Habibi by Craig Thompson, the protagonist, Zam, is adopted by a group of hijras. The governments of both India  and Pakistan  have recognized hijras as a "third sex", thus granting them the basic civil rights of every citizen. They are not, however, fully accommodated; in order to vote, for example, citizens must identify as either male or female. While these are rough synonyms , they may be better understood as separate identities due to regional cultural differences. Hijra used to be translated in English as "eunuch" or "hermaphrodite",  although LGBT historians or human rights activists have sought to include them as being transgender. Still, despite this syncretism , Reddy notes that a hijra does not practice Islam differently from other Muslims and argues that their syncretism does not make them any less Muslim. The film Immaculate Conception  by Jamil Dehlavi is based upon the culture-clash between a western Jewish couple seeking fertility at a Karachi shrine known to be blessed by a Sufi fakir called 'Gulab Shah' and the group of Pakistani eunuchs who guard it.
