Reforms - Section 377

Section 377 had been interpreted to suppress the rights of sexual minorities in India. This section
has been termed as the biggest hurdle in dealing with control of AIDS in the country. But the Delhi High
Court on 2 July 2009 gave a liberal interpretation to this section and laid down that this section can not
be used to punish an act of consensual sexual intercourse between two adult males. This was
incorrectly termed by many people including reputed media houses as amendment of this section which
it was not.

as illegal and punishable. Further Justice G.S.Singhavi clarified that the judgment given is over the
petition filled against Delhi High court order and parliament can overrule this by creating / deleting the
