Indian Army Wants Homosexuality To Remain Punishable
Over a year after the Supreme Court decriminalized adultery and gay-sex in two separate verdicts, the Indian army feels that both the decisions should be undone as gay-sex and adultery can be detrimental to the disciplinary system in the armed force. According to the NDTV report, sources told news agency Press Trust Of India that the army has also taken this matter to the Ministry of Defence saying that adultery and gay officers within the force are going “unnoticed and unpunished”. The army stands against these acts as they believe that there is a need to make these acts punishable or else they will act as a deterrent against the morality to be maintained by the army personnel. Adjutant General of Indian Army, Ashwani Kumar, who looks after the welfare of the ranks and handles grievances, told media personnel on October 30, Wednesday, that some cases may be “legally right, but ethically wrong”.
