SC verdict on gays upholds right to privacy: BJP MP


Sep 07, 2018 (11 months ago) |
Bengaluru, Sep 6 : Lauding the Supreme Court's verdict on decriminalising Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), BJP's Rajya Sabha member from Karnataka Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Thursday said the judgement was a step towards accepting the people as what they are and respecting their privacy.
"The turning point came on August 24, 2017 when the right to privacy became a part of the fundamental rights of Indian citizens. Thursday's judgement by the apex court against Section 377 is a step towards accepting the people for they are," said Chandrasekhar in a statement.

Chandrasekhar was a petitioner in the case against the state-run 12-digit unique identification number Aadhaar and on which a nine-judge constitution bench of the top court unanimously ruled that privacy was a fundamental right.

"I am what I am. So, take me as I am. Congrats to all those who fought this battle," added Chandrasekhar.
