In recent news, besides budget of second session of UPA government, this article of Indian Law was in news. Because a court session of two judges in Delhi High Court declared to decriminalize the Gays, Lesbians and Bisexual couple marriages. Now, Gays and Lesbians are free to move. They have all same rights as other people have in India. Personally, I liked the order of court. Many people are opposing it. But its a person's own way of living a life.
On reading alot on this Law, i got that before this law, during mughal times and even more earlier, there was no restriction on this kind of sexual attraction. But during British Rule, a Law made it totally criminal act as stated in the law "against the nature". It is very interesting to say that British Government later on around 1970 removed this law from its own Law Book.
Many religious monks are against decriminalization. According to them, it is totally against the nature. They say this would increase the chance of spreading AIDS. Those who do not know about sex, who are BRAHAMCHARI, ho can they say about it. They are again restricting the freedom of a person. I really do not like these kind of people.
Well, my take on this is now LGBT are free to move any where. It's their own choice and we should not interfere in between. It's thier way of expressing the love. I hope the INDIAN PARLIAMENT also decriminalize this law.
