Shashi Tharoor has launched this public campaign. The petition reads:

“Your sexual preferences, sexuality, and partner should be your choice. Unfortunately Indian law doesn’t think so. Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code gives the state the authority to investigate what’s happening in your bedroom. It’s a law that can be used to oppress and harass. It has no place in a modern nation like India.

The Indian government is reluctant to amend the law. My Private Member’s Bill was recently defeated in Parliament, but I’m not giving up.

Section 377 should be amended so that all consensual sex between consenting adults irrespective of gender and sexuality is legal. But it should not legitimise forced sex, pedophilia or pederasty.

Sign my petition and help me show the Prime Minister that Indians want Section 377 to be amended.

In amending Section 377, I am upholding the values of our Constitution. The Bill supports our constitutional freedoms – the Right to Privacy and Dignity under Article 21, the Right to Equality under Article 14, and the Right against Discrimination under Article 15.

Sign my petition and help me build support to amend Section 377. If enough of us speak up, we can make the Prime Minister rethink Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.”

  2. India is witnessing a real human rights revolution . This human rights revolution belongs to sexuality rights of every individual. The discussion and debate on homosexual rights belongs to persons having naturalistic and humanistic approach where the real morality exists.
