  1. How long will it be before we get to the core issue of this decision? We know the truth, the people responsible for this decision are religious fanatics who couldn’t care less about furthering their nation and only care about forcing their religious insanity on their entire country.

      like all religious fundamentalists….I never imagined Hindus were bigots, along with all the rest like Islamists and KKKristians and Mormons….grrrrr……

    Navi Pillay for Prime Minister of India! YES!

    1. She’s South African (though she does have Indian ancestry). But she is an awesome human being.

    The governments of all free countries should give official travel warnings to gay couples planning to visit any place where they will be arrested and jailed for being in a same sex relationship. With India and Russia rejoining the list, there are now 78 such countries where homosexuality is illegal.

    Imagine now if you go with your partner on a holiday to India, book a hotel room together, and the next thing the hotelier calls the police, and you find yourselves inside a jail for 10 years.

    It is also possible that if two heterosexual people of the same sex who are not partners share a room they too could be suspected of homosexuality, and face arrest. The onus would then fall on them to prove they were not in a same sex relationship.

    Straight couples should also note that this law bans oral sex and any other variation from the missionary position in a heterosexual relationship too.
