Yashwant Sinha goes overboard suggests arresting the same sex companions of American diplomats
Hindu Nationalist Party "Bhartiya Janata Party" (which is known for its extremist views on every issue) has its senior Leader Yashwant Sinha give this outrageous statement to the Indian media "My suggestion to the Government of India is, the media has reported that we have issued visas to a number of US diplomats' companions. 'Companions' means that they are of the same sex. Now, after the Supreme Court ruling, it is completely illegal in our country. Just as paying less wages was illegal in the US. So, why doesn't the government of India go ahead and arrest all of them? Put them behind bars, prosecute them in this country and punish them," Mr Sinha said.
Yashwant Sinha has got all issues mixed up and ignores the popular sentiments echoed by LGBT community protests on last Sunday.He also cleverly overlooks Supreme Court judgement which cites that IPC 377 has seldom been used in Independent India and the judgement directs government to take what ever actions it thinks is necessary.Its strange of Yashwant Sinha to selectively misrepresent the judgement which inferences IPC 377 as "Vermiform appendix" is in our body which has no use or importance whatsoever.If Homosexuality was illegal Nation-wide protests by Gay community could never happen nor noted Gay activists like Ashok Row Kavi would come on National News Channels openly discussing the LGBT rights issue.
