As the Supreme Court chooses to reevaluate the Constitutional legitimacy of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) which criminalizes homosexuality, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) pioneer Subramanian Swamy has a couple of words for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, indiscriminate, and transgender) group.
“As long as they don’t celebrate it, don’t flaunt it, don’t create gay bars to select partners it’s not a problem,” said Swamy.
In any case, he has an issue with gay individuals parading their adoration.
“In their privacy what they do, nobody can invade. But if you flaunt it, it has to be punished and therefore there has to be Section 377 of the IPC,” added Swamy.
Swamy has been vocal about his perspectives on homosexuality.
On Monday, a best court seat – Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justices AM Khanwilkar, and DY Chandrachud – guaranteed that the issue emerging out of Section 377 should be bantered upon by a bigger seat.
The court has likewise issued a notice to the Central government looking for its reaction on a writ request of documented by five individuals from the LGBT people group, who expressed that they live in dread of police in light of their normal sexual inclinations.
