Sec 377 Quit India, says LGBT community, walks with pride 3.2.2018 General News
Members of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community today took out 'Pride March' through the city streets. The theme of the parade this year was 'Section 377 Quit India', stressing the community's demand to do away with section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises sex "against the order of nature". Pride marches or parades are organised every year across the world to assert the community's collective voice and to demand equal rights and dignity. The march started from August Kranti Maidan (where Mahatma Gandhi had announced the Quit India movement) and ended at the Girgaum Chowpaaty beach. It also marked the culmination of 'Mumbai Pride Month' which had started on January 5. Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, goodwill ambassador of non-profit organisation AIDS Healthcare Foundation, said on this occasion, "Homosexuality has existed in our country since the bygone era and we also find evidence of the same in our mythology, culture, literature, art and

Let adult survivors report child sex abuse 30.1.2018 DNA: Top News
An adult survivor of child sex abuse (CSA) has met WCD minister Maneka Gandhi to demand for an amendment of the law so that adult survivors can report childhood sexual abuse. The survivor, a Chennai-born 51-year-old woman, is now a scientist based in British Columbia. Meeting Gandhi in the presence of DMK MP Kanimozhi, the woman said the abuse was committed by a relative when she was six and went on till she was 13. She left for Canada in 1986, and wanted to file a complaint last year to stop the accused from abusing her niece, but was unable to do so. A cousin, too, had faced the same abuse, she said. In a letter to Gandhi, she demanded for a white paper clarifying the legal provisions of reporting CSA. “It took me many years after becoming an adult to speak out about the abuse. Though the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) is a powerful legislation, it does not explicitly permit latter-day reporting of childhood sexual abuse by adults. I believe that your intervention in this ...

Sodomy case: Delhi court refuses to quash man's 3-yr jail term 21.1.2018 General News
A Delhi court has refused to set aside a three-year jail term awarded to a man for sodomising a 20-year-old boy, saying no lenient view should be taken in such incidents which leave an "indelible mark" on the victim and affect his psychology. Additional Sessions Judge Suresh Kumar Gupta upheld the magisterial court order holding Kuldeep guilty under section 377 (unnatural offences/sodomy) of the IPC while dismissing his appeal. "The appellant (convict) has done carnal intercourse with the victim/complainant. He has satisfied his lust. Such kind of incidents leave indelible mark for life in the mind of the victim. Such incidents even affect the psychological behaviour of the victim. "The appellant cannot take shelter under premise that he is the sole bread earner of his family and his father is suffering from TB. To my mind, there is no ground to take lenient view. Trial court has rightly imposed the sentence on appellant. I do not find any merit in the appeal filed by ..
