Delhi High Court legalises consensual gay ***
Interesting ..... need to see how religious groups react to this.New Delhi: In a historic judgement, the Delhi High Court on Thursday legalised consensual *** among gays.
The court struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
A bench of Chief Justice Ajit Prakash Shah and Justice S Muralidhar said that if not amended, Section 377 of the IPC would violate Article 21 of the Indian Constitution, which states that every citizen has equal opportunity of life and is equal before law.
"We declare Section 377 of IPC in so far as it criminalises consensual ****** acts of adults in private is violative of Articles 14, 21 and 15 of the Constitution," the Bench comprising Chief Justice A P Shah and Justice S Murlidhar said.
anyhow, this judgment can still be appealed in Supreme Court..... but central govt seems to be in favor of decriminalization of homo******ity.
I'm against the government recognizing gay marriage, but the government shouldn't be regulating what people do in their own bedrooms.
Will this judgment hold water in states other than Delhi? Delhi High Court is just one of the 21 High Courts in India, with jurisdiction only over Delhi. This judgment is sure to get questioned in the Supreme Court, religious organizations will make sure about that.
Court has no such restrictions...their verdict is applied all over India till it is challenged in the SC.Will this judgment hold water in states other than Delhi?

I guess I speak for everyone here when I ask "Who the fvck cares?". Are there any gay indian people here?
If there are gay areas in Indian cities, there's $$$$$$$$.
So too will international companies will follow with gay ex-pats. With more $$$$$$.
Progressive. Glad to hear it (though I'm not too interested on hearing about it ).
When this happens, it brings more money into the local community. Not so much in goods and services, but also in civic arts, community organizing and urban revitalization.
In sum: Gay tolerant societies tend to prosper economically.
