New Delhi, 12 December
The Aam Aadmi party today expressed its disappointment over the judgment of the Supreme Court upholding the Section 377 of the IPC and reversing the judgment of the Delhi High Court on the subject.
"The Supreme Court judgment thus criminalises the personal behaviour of consenting adults. All those who are born with or choose a different sexual orientation would thus be placed at the mercy of the police," party said in a statement, adding that this not only violates the human rights of such individuals, but goes against the liberal values of our Constitution, and the spirit of our times.
AAP is also hopeful and expects that the Supreme Court will review this judgment and that the Parliament will also step in to repeal this law.
