IPC 377 – To Be Or Not To Be?

Well we will find out today.

The much-awaited verdict on the eight-year-old public interest litigation (PIL) seeking decriminalization of homosexuality would finally be delivered by the Delhi High Court on Thursday.

The court would deliver its judgment at a time when the UPA government in its second term seems prepared to take a relook at the 19th century colonial law that treats homosexual activity as a crime. [Link]

As mentioned in the previous post, I highly doubt much benefit will come out of today’s hearing, simply because our authority figures are way too weak in the knees to face up any form of backslash from various religious groups, political parties and such like.

But as my good friend always says – Umeed par duniya kayam hai – so fingers crossed, people. And in case you are wondering, yes he is a human rights activist.
