Article by: Bhavna Mohinani; Hail Supreme Court!
Justice equality and humanity still breathes in Jurisdiction. In a verdict of Section 377, Supreme Court delivered an altered historic decision by saying Section 377 is irrational and arbitrary.
Chief Justice Dipak Misra, head of the bench hearing the case said, “LGBT Community has same rights as of any ordinary citizen. Respect for each others’ rights, and others are supreme humanity. Criminalising gay sex is irrational and indefensible”.
The bench of all five Judges- Justices Dipak Misra, Rohinton Nariman, AM
Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra signed the verdict and made homosexuality legal.
The issue debated for years finally got justice. It is a victory to the LGBTQ
community and to the humanity.
