Ammar became famous among Human Rights community when he wrote a petition against the Government of Pakistan’s Punjab Province in which he asked the provincial government to stop using the term “shemale” while describing people from the third gender and use the word “transgender” instead. In his latest book, “Human Rights and Wrongs. Biological Skepticism towards Human Rights”, Ammar attempted to provide an adequate theoretical framework to understand the biological basis of human rights. By using examples of embryonic stem cell research, humanoid robotics and artificial intelligence, he highlighted a clash between applied scientists and legal scientists and argued that the biology can provide a framework of cooperation for legal and applied scientists.
