Section 377 was finally taken into consideration by the supreme court on Thursday. It came to a conclusion of decriminalising the section as it believes, adult gay sex is not a crime. Supreme Court added,” Sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it”. The judgment, by the nation’s best court, has discontinued the British-period of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which considered that is a punishable crime. Presently, it is not any more an offence under Section 377 to take part in consensual gay sex in private.
What Exactly Is Section 377?
Segment 377 of the IPC states: “Whoever deliberately has animalistic intercourse against the order of nature with any man, lady or creature, will be charged with 1[imprisonment for life], or with imprisonment of either portrayal for a term which may stretch out to ten years, and will likewise be obligated to fine.” This obsolete British law goes back to 1861 and criminalizes sexual exercises against the request of nature.
Statement Of SC
This time the Supreme Court took this as a discrimination and came to conclusion saying, “Consensual sex between adults in a private space, which is not harmful to women or children, cannot be denied as it is a matter of individual choice. Section 377 results in discrimination and is violative of constitutional principles”.
