explanations to justify homosexuality gay sex and gay rights The reason for an individual to have the right to his or her own sexual orientation — which is no one else’s business — should be obvious And maybe the Supreme Court agreeing to reconsider its 2013 verdict criminalising homosexuality will give credence to this point In December 2013 the apex court had overturned a 2009 high court verdict that had decriminalised homosexuality Representational image Reuters Even before this verdict in December 2013 there were 16 countries which had legalised gay sex Netherlands was the first country to legalise homosexuality in 2000 It was followed by Belgium Canada Spain South Africa Norway Sweden Iceland Portugal Argentina Denmark and Uruguay till 2013 according to Pew Research Center In fact 2013 — the year in which the Supreme Court criminalised homosexuality — was ironically also the year which saw the highest number of countries legalising homosexuality in a single year A total of five countries — Uruguay New Zealand France Brazil and England and Wales — legalised gay sex in 2013 The world has also changed a lot since 2013 There are now over 25 countries around the world that allow gay marriage Of these at least ten countries legalised homosexuality after the Supreme Court’s 2013 verdict On 4 February 2014 Scotland legalised gay marriage and also gave its churches and religious groups the freedom to decide whether they wanted to conduct such marriages On 18 June that year Luxembourg allowed same sex couples to marry and adopt The bill was championed by the country’s prime minister Xavier Bettel who is openly gay Finland also legalised homosexuality in February 2015 becoming the last of the five Nordic countries to legalise homosexuality On 22 May 2015 Catholic-majority Ireland became the first country to legalise homosexuality through a referendum in which 62 percent people voted in favour of legalisation Greenland — an autonomous region of Denmark — also legalised gay marriage in May 2015 It was on 27 June 2015 that the United States Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was legal throughout the country Even before this ruling there were 36 states and the District of Columbia in the US which had legalised gay marriage On 28 April 2016 Colombia became the fourth country in Catholic-majority South America to legalise homosexuality after Argentina Uruguay and Brazil On 30 June 2017 Germany became the 15th European country to legalise same sex marriage German chancellor Angela Merkel however voted against legalisation despite having asked MPs to vote according to their conscience Malta legalised homosexuality in July 2017 And on 7 December 2017 Australia passed legislation allowing homosexual couples to legally marry Apart from India there are also calls in Ghana now for the legalisation of homosexuality By: Express News Service | Published: January 1 2016 12:00 am Top News If 2014 was the year of the decisive mandate the message of 2015 was that in a democracy like India today a majority is not enough That message was found most of all in what has come to be known as the intolerance debate Beyond the name-calling and outside of attempts by the BJP’s political opponents to encash it it gave vent to a gathering unease about the settling in of majoritarian triumphalism and certitude in the wake of the Modi victory The Congress sought to take advantage but the intolerance debate was not of its making And in that lay much of its potency It drew upon seemingly disparate incidents — the lynching of a man on the suspicion of storing or consuming beef in Dadri the murder of a rationalist in Dharwad the smearing of a dissenter’s face with ink in Mumbai It was fuelled by the silence that emanated from the top echelons of government as response But in its best version the intolerance debate was made up of citizens of a country of many minorities talking back to a new government that seemed to be emboldening the old divisive ways As the new year begins the Modi government would do well to reflect on a mandate based on expectations of change Sure the 2014 verdict was about a charismatic leader and the rousing of the Hindutva faithful But a Lok Sabha tally of 282 was made possible only by a Hindutva plus What was added to the older incitement was a wider appeal that straddled and softened the faultlines of community caste and class If in the 1990s politics had seemed to fragment and electoral outcomes reflected that reality in the onset of coalitions at the Centre the Modi verdict flagged a change that had begun at the turn of the century Pro-incumbency verdicts were edging out a rote anti-incumbency and there was a blunting of divides and traditional strongholds Votebank politics appeared to have reached a point of saturation and a new coming together of voters was reflected in the large majorities that catapulted to power an Akhilesh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh or a Nitish Kumar in Bihar The scale of their victories could only be explained by a massive crossing over across the established lines Verdict 2014 at the Centre also spoke of a shared aspiration for something new something better Yet too much of the politics and government that followed it in 2015 was more of the same The intolerance debate seemed all the more compelling also because there was little in the name of governance to wean away people’s attention The government seemed stuck in Parliament losing the moment on GST And on ‘Make in India’ and other slogans there wasn’t enough movement on the ground The year 2016 must bring greater tolerance and the promised change A government that already has a majority must now find the plus factor For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
