India faces stern test at United Nations meet 5.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
India faced a series of tough questions at the United Nations Human Rights Council's (UNHRC) Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on Thursday, with a host of the 112-member countries questioning it on the penalisation of same-sex sexual rights and the decriminalisation of marital rape, under section 377 and section 375 of the Indian Penal Code respectively. This apart, several countries questioned India's commitment to ratifying the UN's convention on torture, to which it became a signatory in 1997. Surprisingly for India, more than a dozen countries asked for a review of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA), 2010.

In India under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code homosexuality is considered a criminal offence, along with sexual activities "against the order of nature" so when media reported that a female Sub-Inspector from Punjab married her partner, the images from the wedding went viral. However in an interview with Hindustan Times 44-year-old Manjit Sandhu who married her 27-year-old partner cleared the air. “I am not a police officer and have not undergone any sex-change procedure,” Manjit, who works as a warden for the state government, said to HT. Sandhu was unhappy that her wedding became such a publicised affair and condemned the media for spreading false information. Her family and the family of her bride were all present during the ceremony. The wedding took place at a temple in Pucca Bagh, Jalandhar. Manjit, dressed in an off-white sherwani and a red turban arrived with her bride on a horse-drawn chariot. Sub-inspector or not, this wedding has definitely broken a lot of homosexuality taboos. ...
