Life Sentences Necessary "To Control Homosexuality" India Says
(New Delhi) The government of India says the public would never accept the decriminalization of homosexuality. In a brief presented to the country's Supreme Court, the government says that ‘‘Indian society is intolerant to the practice of homosexuality/lesbianism.’’
The high court is hearing an appeal by AIDS and gay groups that the country's sodomy law is unconstitutional. The so-called laws against nature allow for people convicted of homosexuality to be imprisoned up to life, although the maximum sentence is seldom handed out.
The government told the court Monday that society’s disapproval of homosexuality was ‘‘strong enough to justify it being treated as a criminal offence even where the adults indulge in it in private.’’
