J K Rowling returns human rights award :

J K Rowling says this on her website. The statement incorrectly implied that I was transphobic, and that I am responsible for harm to trans people,”

“As a longstanding donor to LGBT charities and a supporter of trans people’s right to live free of persecution. I absolutely refute the accusation that I hate trans people or wish them ill. Or that standing up for the rights of women is wrong, discriminatory, or incites harm or violence to the trans community.”

Earlier in June Rowling tweeted that she is supporting trans rights but never says to believe in striking out biological sex concept. She refuses to movement seeking to grind down woman on the basis of political and biological class.

J K Rowling returns human rights award and expresses her views by saying that for those who contacts me get unanimity. But for those who are struggling to make their voices heard gets nothing. She adds that she was not completely motivated to speak out about the matter because of her personal experience of abuse and sexual assault.

Criticism by the Actors of Harry Potter  :

Harry Potter franchise actors as well as Daniel Radcliffe have earlier criticise the author. J K Rowling draws criticism by tweeting again and again on her website about transgender people.

Kerry Kennedy joins the criticism :

This month when Kerry Kennedy publishes her view point on the RFK Human Rights website. The group works for children to get worldwide out of orphanages and poured into families.

Not only this, Kennedy also claims that the strikes of J K Rowling about the transgender community are renunciation of her father’s vision.

Kennedy says “I have spoken with J.K. Rowling to express my profound disappointment that she has chosen to use her remarkable gifts to create a narrative that diminishes the identity of trans and nonbinary people, undermining the validity and integrity of the entire transgender community — one that disproportionately suffers from violence, discrimination, harassment, and exclusion and, as a result, experiences high rates of suicide, suicide attempts, homelessness, and mental and bodily harm,”
