Is It Fair to Promote Homosexuality in India

Supreme Court, having overturned the judgment of the Delhi High Court and upholding the supremacy of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, has given a clear verdict that anything that was not acceptable and is not in sync with nature cannot be sanctioned in the Indian society. Believe me, the jurists have all the acumen in this world when they consider arguments and also are they reasonable and fair while making a decision. They do not just view any situation with the eyes of the defendant or the plaintiff; they assess the event in light of the society at large, past positions and future consequences. Then should we not evaluate the verdict of the Apex Court on homosexuality with much broader and prudent perspective? Isn’t it in the open? Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender are vulnerable tosuppression in the society, are disowned by parents and relatives, and are rarely considered acceptable for a job. Many would argue these harsh facts quoting few examples from the media, fashion and film industry; but once you approve this notion of unnatural sexual orientation, the number will see such a hike that depression for the homosexuals and augmentedsuppression will be the only outcomes.

Type ‘parents disowning homosexual child’ on the internet and you would come across an endless list for across the world with parents justifying their measure. I could also come across ‘Being Gay, A Life of Misery’ by a gay activist and could know the social unacceptance on the account of being a homosexual. Physical as well as mental health issues are also a significant part of concerns they face, leave aside the social ones. The Prince of one of the princely states of India accepted being a gay, was disinherited by the family, though was later recalled; heacknowledged that he tremendously regretted for ruining his ex-wife’s life and held himself guilty. How many people from among the activists, apart from LGBTs, asking for legality of this issue would readily accept a son or a daughter when he/ she admit of being a homosexual? Harsh and blunt this may sound, but accept the truth; when we ask for some rights, they shall be tolerable to the right-seekers themselves and to the society at large. This same equation was paid heed to by the Supreme Court that did not find unnatural sexual orientation in line with the national and social consensus; hence its criminality stands erect. If people, other than the LGBT activists themselves, can validate how Indian society, or for that matter any society or faith around the world, will be a better place with homosexuality as a legal notion, I don’t think that even the prudent judges of India will have any concerns.

Eyes open and with ears listening to the agony of homosexuals, it is not that tricky to note that though we crave for social equality and freedom of sex between consenting adults as is enshrined in our constitution, basic veracity is impossible to be changed. And this basic truth lies in the element that rarely anyIndian family would welcome a situation when their child would seek permission to marry someone from the same sex. Openly mocking at the sexual orientation and also at the public conductof homosexuals is a regular scenario, even in the films that represent them as something to make fun of. Many activists supporting this unnatural orientation claim that historical literary evidences do exist that are an indicative of the prevalence of homosexuality across the Indian subcontinent, also asserting that homosexuals were never considered low-grade in the past, something that is happening in the present world. But can I ask them as to whether the movement is against ill-treatment of LGBTs or for according the same as lawful, and if someone believes that according a legitimate status to an immoral and unnatural act would change the outlook of the society and resultant suppression, that person is heading towards a mistakenaim.

When the decision of the Delhi High Court, which rendered Section 377 of the IPC as unconstitutional, was challenged in the Supreme Court, the petitioners were from all the faiths, this substantiates that none of the religious leaders or associations would ever approve the concept of homosexuality. The protestors of the judgment of the Supreme Court were either the LGBTs, or a few activists and politicians. Isn’t it true that the general public would have never retaliated to the ruling of the prudent judges in case the LGBT activists had not projected the ruling as a violation of the fundamental rights of some citizens, which in true sense is not since freedom can never be unconditional, or with nil restrictions? Same applies to this issue, which surely demands fair treatment of those who develop feelings for the same sex; but legalization of the same is nothing less than promoting homosexuality, a situation that would only enhance the miseries of these people rather than providing them with a dignified life. What would have happened in case even the Apex Court had held the Section 377 as unconstitutional? Would we be then prepared to willingly accept the confessing of our son/ daughter of being homosexual? Are we then ready for such a situation where something that finds no place in nature, science and culture is openly endorsed?

Remember, the outlook of the society can never be changed by sanctioning any unacceptable act by means of a law; laws, however, are made in consensus with the acceptable norms of society. Hence, the need is not a homosexuality-favoring verdict or repealing of the section of IPC, rather it is time to prudently assess the ongoing events and come to a conclusion as to whether our society can ever accept homosexuality. Need is to analyze the problems, social, health, and all others, faced byhomosexuals and to make endeavors to lessen them. Plus, need is to stop the promotion/ sanctioning of homosexuality; I am sure that with the kind of harshness and unacceptance faced, social, not legal, not even any one of the lesbians/ gays would ever ask for furtherance of homosexuality from the very heart.

In the end, though controversial and politically handled, this recent row is worth paying heed to. When one of the state ministers of Goa advocated establishing centers for the LGBTs, protests raised from almost every corner, but did anyone truly and scrupulously consider the harsh reality of the society thatacceptance of homosexuals will always remain far than achieved? Will it be that wrong and unjust then to have counselling centers that can promote LGBTs towards standard social and health norms? Shall I not call the same as self-destruction on the part of those who just are looking at one side of the coin; the other, however, can help them lead an honorable and acceptable life. The issue surely demands astute assessment by honest people to ensure right to dignified life of all Indian citizens, including LGBTs.

    Supreme Court of India has ruled that homosexuality cannot be allowed in India and central government should think about this.
    People who are now objecting to the decision are involved in contempt of court hence they should be punished.

  2. Narendra Ch

    Its all depends..but one this is is not natural phenomenon..some abnormal human behaviour….against nature.

  3. V.C. Chadda

    What I have seen so far is brilliant and everyone involved should be congratulated. I can see me spending the rest of the evening perusing the site. Just when I thought I would like an early night!

  4. K.K. Mahajan

    This is very true, we all see that people with such behaviour are made fun of in the society,
    even by those who say that homosexuality should be allowed.
    First we need to change our attitude then we can think of anything like permitting this.

  5. Debraj

    When “…social equality and freedom…” are upheld and protected by the judiciary or govt., that itself promotes a free and healthy society, not otherwise. So, the issue is not just homosexuality, but that of protecting freedom of life (not “promoting”). And as for your concern about one’s own children, there are so many parents that will equally cringe upon hearing that their sons and daughters will become actors/ singers/ poets/ mountaineers/ etc. Does that make it prudent to make such professions illegal and criminal? Legal protection here helps one to fight for themselves and prove to the society that they are equally productive, loving and cherish-able citizens who will make their parents proud as they are. I would request you, Dr. Gupta, to wait and get answers to your concerns as time and events unfold. Legal acceptance will come, followed by social acceptance with time, as people show themselves what is “dignified” for them: running and hiding, or being loved and accepted for themselves.

    What is the definition of natural? Homosexuality is not natural to a heterosexual person and it is natural to a homosexual person. Homosexuality is seen in all species of animals including human beings. No other animals except human being discriminate against homosexuals. Thus homophobia is unnatural, not homosexuality.

  7. Jerry Lewis

    gay marriage does not promote homosexuality or homosexual behaviour; gay marriage promotes honesty, integrity, commitment, families, stability and health

  8. Ritesh

    Homosexuality is a very delicate subject matter and not one group can come to any final ruling about this.
    I think LGBT groups, government and religious leaders should unanimously resolve this so that the social balance is not disturbed.

    I cannot understand why people cannot accept that the acts of lesbians and gays are natural and this is not a disease that can be cured.
    They are independent and have minds to know what is right and wrong.
    If they had the option why would they not lead a normal life.

  14. Dilip Mavin

    Even I have advocated centers for homosexuals that can help them overcome such attitude, but only if possible.
    What is wrong if they are influenced in a right manner to live a normal life like others.
    Counselling should be considered for them, there is nothing wrong.

  15. Mukesh

    In our ages old literature, I admit that there is a mention of the third caste,
    but is there anything written about promoting sex within same sex?
    This whole is related with fulfilling sensual desires and nothing with any gift of God.

  16. Sayeeda

    I quite like reading an article that can make men and women think. Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!

  17. Pankaj Dheer

    The article says that the society will never accept such absurd condition, really?
    Why then western countries have no issue with gays and lesbians and why do they treat them as normal?
    An individual opinion cannot be the verdict of complete society.

  19. Deepak Chawla

    Whatever you say can be right but sir every subject in India becomes
    a political tool because every group has some members who can vote.
    This is why government in the past did not like the verdict of the supreme court.
    Political setup should change first.

  20. Anuj

    One of my male friends has turned into gay and lives separate from his family.
    To live, he is engaged in illicit activities and this scenario is very common in metro cities
    but no one pays attention unless it reaches one’s home.
    I agree with author.

  21. Raj Kumar

    If the government will promote homosexuality I can bet that the number of LGBT will increase in such a manner that it will become hard to control.
    For the welfare of the society such acts should never be declared lawful.
