Tharoor’s Bill to Decriminalise Homosexuality Defeated in LS

436 ratings | 11685 views
For the second time in three months, Lok Sabha today voted against the introduction of a private member’s bill brought by Congress member Shashi Thraoor to decriminalise homosexualty. Tharoor’s private member bill sought to amend the “colonial era” Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) that criminalises homosexuality. In effect, the bill aims to decriminalise sexual intercourse in private between consenting adults, irrespective of their sexuality or gender by restricting the applicability of the section. 58 out of 73 members present voted against introduction of the Bill, while 14 were in its favour. One member abstained from voting. Tharoor’s previous attempt to introduce a similar bill in the Lok Sabha on December 18 too was voted out. Tharoor had then said he would make another attempt to introduce the bill. The Supreme Court in December 2013 overturned a verdict of the Delhi High Court that had set aside Section 377 of the IPC asking the government to take a view on the controversial subject of decriminalising homosexuality.

Destroyer Of Iphone Chargers 😂😂😂😂 Stop blaming britshers they are the one who tried to stop it. Castesim existed since ancient India. And you are saying its eradicated now?😂 Bjp follows castesim all the brahmin swines follows castesim. Go to UP and see what kind of shithole it is. Castesim can never end. Its in hindu culture
nikitha bakshi Hinduism never meant to preach racism It came along with the britishers And casteism and sexism is almost eradicated now.

I'm a gay black man. I visited India a few years ago. It was my dream to travel to India, as I'm a Hare Krsna devotee. I felt uncomfortable about the attitude toward gay people, but, since that's a part of me that isn't apparent, at least I don't walk around with a gay banner declaring my sexuality. But there was another part of me that I can't hide, and that's the color of my skin. I happen to be an Afro-Carribean man but was mistaken for being from Africa by several people. I had no idea that Africans were attacked by haters. I hated how backward the country was when it comes to race, sexuality, and equality in general. I was either vilified, and ridiculed, or ignored for being black. A friend of mine was getting married, there was a wedding party from the US that I was a part of, all the people of color had the same experience. We along with all the women were summarily ignored, while all the white men were treated with the utmost respect. Very bad. It was a life long desire to visit India was torn to shreds, finding that it was no different from so many other places of the world. I was very disappointed. Very disappointed, and will never go back, unless I go only to Vrndavana to be with other Hare Krsna devotees. It's unfortunate, but that's the only way to protect myself.

@Kushagra May be in 2100 because majority of Indians are hardly liberal. Even Mr. Shashi believes so ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3QlNAxxLW8

eikam Singh I think that's what blackwing's saying. Not all are racist, but racism is high.
eikam Singh (6 months ago)
blackwing ALL north indians aren't racist. This entire reply just sounds like you trying to promote the south which is all good but don't come for the rest of the country. Alot of people don't have that mentality that you are describing.

We need more people like him who want to build an inclusive India which has a place for everyone from transgenders, men, women, MUslims, Hindus, Parsis, Christians, all classes etc unlike the vision of RSS for a country which has a place only Hindus and Hindi Speakers,..

My god, the Bhakt at fire. It is an 1800s rule that British imposed. Congress or BJP had nothing to do with it.. don't be blinded by hate.

Your facts are mixed up. The UPA had nothing to do with criminalizing it. The Delhi HC sought to de-criminalize it but the SC (rightly) pointed out that it is only up to the legislators to pass or get rid of laws, not up to courts. Unfortunately, as the above video shows, the motion to de-criminalize it never passed.
