Sansad TV
In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Legalising Same-Sex Marriage’. The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre Govt on a plea by two gay couples seeking recognition of same-sex marriage under the Special Marriage Act, 1954. The petition drew on earlier landmark rulings including one declaring privacy a fundamental right and another that decriminalized gay sex in 2018. In 2021 central Government had opposed same sex marriage in Delhi High Court stating that a marriage in India can be recognised only if its between a biological man and biological woman capable of producing children. In its argument then Central govt had also said that considerations of “societal morality” are relevant in considering the validity of a law and it is for the Legislature to enforce such societal morality and public acceptance based upon Indian ethos. Centre has to now file its response on this matter before the Supreme Court in four weeks.
