If you think Saudis and Pakistanis have some kind of hegemony over issuing crazy ass fatwas, you have another think coming. Malaysians are not far off the mark.
After bringing all Muslim males, females and children under the purview of religion, the clerics in Malaysia are now targeting the hermaphrodites. They are now required to determine their sex with medical experts before obtaining a court order which may enable them to undergo sex change operations.
The need for this fatwas came up when some hermaphroditeswanted to get sex determination surgeries. Now they can do it once they get approval from the Shariah courts.
It must be noted that their National Fatwa Council has declared sex change for males and female haraam a good 29 years back but allows it for hermaphrodites. I am sure the hermaphrodites must be jumping with joy over this amazing liberty.
