Supreme Court on Gay Rights
The Supreme Court on Thursday issued notice to the Centre and NGO Naz Foundation on a petition challenging the Delhi High Court judgement on homosexuality. The court has sought the reply by July 20.
Clarifying that marriage laws had not changed, the apex court refused to stay gay marriages. Any interim order for staying gay marriages or their registration would be considered after hearing the Centre and other parties concerned.
The Supreme Court was hearing a petition filed by astrologer SK Kaushal challenging the Delhi High Court judgement on Section 377.
