JUSTIFYING THE UNJUST: AN ANALYSIS OF INTERTEMPORAL LAWMarch 2, 2019
ANALYZING THE CONSUMER PROTECTION BILL 2018March 17, 2019
“Love have no boundaries and no gender“
SECTION 377 Of Indian Penal Code is an act that criminalize homosexuality and was introduced in year 1861 during British rule in India. Referred to unnatural offences and says whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the nature with any men and women or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life.
So here on this view does that mean as being a women if she fell in love with other women she have to face the society and it is a sin to love some one of same gender don’t we as people need to change the mentality according to 21st century where we live with all the freedom then why don’t we get the right to choose our own partner why being homosexual is considered as shameful in society and many times to hide this parents of that particular boy or girl forcefully make them marry their opposite gender to save their respect in society result of which they ruin both the person lives.
And many people who support it came forward – It was first challenged by NGO’s NAZ Foundation and AIDS Bedhbhav Virodh Andolan in high court in 2001. However petition were dismissed in the court but it kept on going on in other way and finally in 2016 five petitions were filed in Supreme Court by LGBT ACTIVISTS and it was resulted in 2018 6, September the apex Court bench announced that consensual adult gay sex marriage is not crime and no one can snatch their fundamental right mentioned in part 3 of constitution and section 377 cannot violate it and Article 14 and 21 contradict the present view of section 377.
So as result LGBT community finally get their rights back but as a citizen when we see it we will find that still society don’t accept them properly still they have to face tantrums in society about being homosexual. Society need to know – “Love see no religion, no caste and no sexuality, they are free to choose their partner, they are free to live happily in their own condition as love has no words and no gender”. They were fighting with law for their freedom and when they won the battle they realized they have to struggle more they have to still continue to fight with their society. Many times we as citizens says laws don’t support them but as deep as we go we realize society don’t support them they feel shame of the people who belongs to this community.
Is this called equality to all being the citizen and people of the society they should learn to accept that’s how they are born that’s how they need society to accept them, support them
When a child is born homosexual parents should say with pride that they are my child and we support them so changes should be made from here so that they can live their life freely they don’t have to hide their identity for the respect but people should respect them with the way they are.
