Government supports decriminalization of gay sex

After a long confusion period, the government takes a firm stand on the issue of decriminalization of gay sex supporting that there is nothing wrong with the high court decision taken back in time.

Additional solicitor general Mohan Jain spoke before the court on Tuesday and informed that the government considers that there is no error in the law passed by the high court regarding decriminalizing of gay sex in 2009.

The news delivered by Mohan Jain contradicts to that of the additional solicitor general P P Malhotra who spoke before the court in the previous hearing against the decision announced by Delhi High Court.

Seeing contradictory comments been given by the members of the government, Justices S J Mukhopadhaya and G S Singhvi called the center in a stringent manner to come up with their final decision at the earliest and to quit making a fool out of itself by giving such statements in public.

The panel of justices said, “Don’t make (a) mockery of the system. ASG Malhotra has already argued the case for more than three hours. Don’t waste the court’s time. We noted down arguments put forward by the home ministry. So now you tell the stand of your ministry.”

The bench heard the arguments put forward by Mohan Jain as well and asked the center in a strict manner to bring forth a final perspective soon.
