Is it time to review Section 377?-A Debate Background: Naz Foundation challenged the constitutional validity of section 377 before the Delhi High Court and received a favourable verdict when the court held that the essence of Section 377 goes against the fundamental rights of citizens. The court declared that the Section, insofar as it criminalises consensual sexual acts of adults in private, is violative of Articles 21, 14 and 15. It further ruled that the provisions of Section 377 would continue to govern non-consensual penile non-vaginal sex and penile non-vaginal sex involving minors. . The Delhi High Court rightly held that criminalising sexual activities with consent in private not only impairs the dignity of those persons targeted by the law, but it is also discriminatory and impacts the health of those people. Gay men are seen as criminals by the law because of Section 377,and thus by other members of society. This judgment lifted the criminal restrictions on gay men. . Koushal Judgement of Supreme Court: Delhi H.C. judgement was short-lived as the Supreme Court in Suresh Kumar Koushal v. Naz Foundation (2013) set aside the Delhi High Court judgment.
. Arguments in Favour of Scrapping Section 377 Pre- British era: Section 377, titled "unnatural offences", was enacted by the British after we lost our First War of Independence in 1857.They imposed their religio-cultural values upon us. Prior to that, sexual activities, including amongst homosexuals,were not penalised in India. Discriminatory in nature I.Though it textually applies to all persons, homosexual and heterosexual, it has been targeted at gay men. 2. Out of sync with other laws: The Koushal judgment did not notice that: After Criminal Law(Amendment)Act 201 3 the rape law itself had changed whereby instead of mere restriction on penile-vaginal non-consensual sex, it now includes a range of sexual activities including digital and object penetration Consent is considered to be irrelevant. In the case of children, law presumes no consent. Therefore all sexual acts between an adult and a child are penalised. Even PoCSO Act creates a provisoin for consensual sex], 3.Violation of Article 14 &15:Section 377 is now restricted only to gay men and perhaps transgender people.
