In India, the law on the persecution of people for homosexuality was abolished

Article 377, which provided for the punishment of up to 10 years of imprisonment for same-sex relationships, was abolished by the supreme court. The law was adopted in 1861 during the colonial rule of Great Britain.

Article 377 was adopted under the colonial regime in 1861. She considered the same-sex relationship “violating the laws of nature bodily relationship with a man, woman or animal.” Anal’s and oral sex was also considered a violation of the law.

In 2009, the criminal responsibility for same-sex relationships was abolished, but in 2013 the law was restored because of the many petitions of political, public and religious organizations. But now the decision to challenge is impossible.
