Indian Supreme Court to reconsider sodomy ruling

Timothy Kincaid

January 27th, 2014

In December, a two-judge panel of India’s Supreme Court ruled that the country’s Colonial Era law against sodomy, Section 377, was constitutionally permissible. The ruling was issued on the day one of the judges retired.

The government of India, along with many organizations, requested that the Court revisit that decision. Tomorrow they will decide whether to do so: (TimesofIndia)

The Supreme Court will tomorrow take up petitions filed by Centre and rights activists seeking review of its verdict declaring gay sex an offence punishable up to life imprisonment.

A bench of justices H L Dattu and S J Mukhopadhaya will take up the petition in chamber to decide whether the verdict needs to be re-looked or not.

This has the potential to be huge. If the court strikes this down, u are left with a very stark international divide on homosexuals. Democracies and emerging open societies on one side and corrupt authoritarians on the other.
