Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in India face the danger of being fined and imprisoned up to a lifetime because of their sexual orientation. Homosexual intercourse is a criminal offence under section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. However, section 377 is a violation of fundamental rights of citizens. This law violates the constitution by depriving citizens of their right to equal treatment under the law, privacy and freedom of expression. Hence, the LGBT people in India are oppressed. Some people believe that homosexuality is against Indian culture. However, in the ancient Indian temples, it was depicted in paintings and carvings. More awareness needs to be spread and pride parades must b carried out. In India, the LGBT people are made fun of which needs to stop.
Development and modernization can only be possible keeping in mind the beliefs and rights of all sections of society.
