India: Supreme Court Re-Affirms Anti Gay Ruling

Written by scott on January 28th, 2014

IndiaThe India Supreme Court took another look at its ruling re-criminalizing gay sex, and it liked what it saw.

Joe.My.God reports:

The Indian Supreme Court today refused to reconsider its December decision to reinstate the criminalization of homosexuality. Many had expected the Court to do so after major Indian and international leaders denounced the ruling. Judges dismissed petitions from the government and rights activists who say the order was wrong. The Supreme Court judgement last month overturned a landmark 2009 Delhi High Court ruling decriminalising gay sex. The ruling is seen as a huge blow to gay rights and has been criticised by activists and government ministers.

It’s time for legislators in India to step up and legalize homosexuality in the country once and for all.
