Gay sex decriminalised: Clerics protest order, hint at moving court

Even as celebrations began across the country after the apex court verdict on Section 377, Muslim clerics, cutting across sects and organisations, came out in strong protest, terming homosexuality against religion and humanity.

Senior functionaries of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board did not rule out approaching the court on the matter.

Acording to PTI,Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind’s General Secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani said, “Homosexuality is against nature, religion and cultural values ??of India. It should not have been allowed. A process which affects the growth of society cannot be termed right by calling it freedom. Homosexuals have been here since ages, but in the religious texts, homosexuality has been described as an act of rebellion against the laws of nature.”

Maulana Madani said Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind also focused on the moral training of youth as the country cannot put on the path of progress without the moral training of youths.

However, by allowing and decriminalizing same sex will make parents jittery about their wards who want to cultivate and nurture good values in them, he added.
