SC verdict on Article 377

Kashmir Times. Dated: 9/8/2018 2:28:10 PM

Dear Editor,
Five-member bench of Supreme Court on 07.09.2018 through a unanimous verdict striking down earlier verdict by Division Bench of the Apex Court, now giving right to equality for minority gay-section in society should be applicable on other aspects too. Caste-reservation is one such major issue which gives extra rights to those under reserved categories over those in general category is thus anti-constitutional. Supreme Court should sue-motto take up the SC-ST Act passed unanimously by all political parties for vote-bank politics for negating Apex Court verdict Likewise only Uniform Civil Code can provide equal rights and duties to all citizens in India where only Muslims are allowed for bigamy.
However best practical comments on Supreme Court verdict on article 377 of the Constitution have come from RSS which has described gay-sex is neither a crime nor normal. Central government sensing the sensitiveness of the issue rightly chose not to participate in hearings at the Apex Court with ruling BJP being the only party avoiding comments on the verdict.
Larger bench of the Apex Court should be formed as suggested by Parliamentarian Dr Subramanium Swamy to further elaborate the issue in a practical manner to prevent big damage likely to be caused to society in general where ancient Indian traditions are likely to be destructed because of youngsters adopting gay-sex as a fashion-status in the society. Any court-verdict should also be based on requirements of Indian society rather than focussing only rights of a particular section of society.
