Scandal in Turkey: Transgender Woman Raped and Burned in Istanbul

Although Turkey remains conservative towards the LGBT community, hundreds of activists came out in protest on the streets of Istanbul after the brutal murder of Hande Kader, a 22-year-old transgender woman.
Kader was a sex worker, and the last time she was seen getting into a client’s car. Then she disappeared and soon friends began to look for her. In desperation, the roommate Hande Davut Dengiler went to the morgue.

“I was about to leave the morgue with relief that I did not find her there. And then the doctor said: "There is still a burned body - look at it too." And I looked. I told them the distinguishing features, and they checked them according to the autopsy data in the computer. The doctor put his hand on my back and expressed condolences. ”

“She has been attacked before, like other transgender people.”

Kader was raped and burned - just 2 weeks after a decapitated gay man was found in the same part of Istanbul - Syrian refugee Muhammad Visam Sankari.

LGBT activists regularly protest against cruelty towards their representatives, but the rest of the Turks rarely speak out.Moreover, after an unsuccessful attempt of a military coup in Turkey, demonstrations are still prohibited.

But for the first time, well-known personalities of Turkey also expressed concern about the brutality of the killing of Kader and are going to go to the rally scheduled for tonight in Istanbul.

According to human rights activists, Turkey has the highest number of transgender murders in Europe. And the killed Khande herself tried to draw attention to this problem and injustice; she was always the instigator in local demonstrations.

In 2015, the LGBT gay parade was banned in Istanbul. Then the crowd was dispersed with water cannons, rubber bullets and pepper spray cans. But Kader did not give up the police. “You take photos, but do not publish them. No one hears us, ”Hande told reporters. Maybe even after her death they will hear.
