On the eve of the apex court’s verdict slated for tomorrow on decriminalisation of homosexuality in the country, the LGBT community’s chorus for equality has reached a crescendo.
Refusing to return to the closet they demand the scrapping of the contentious Section 377. So the question is, will the SC now take up the mantle for social reform or pass it on to the legislature?
In terms of political support, the Supreme Court had earlier said that this is for the parliament to deal with rather than the judiciary.
Meanwhile Baba Ramdev has shocked us all with his regressive views calling homosexuality an ‘American disease’.
So will the SC cure this ‘diseased mindset’?
