Written by 



Following the reaction of the Indian government being opposed to the re-criminalization of homosexuality in India, the Supreme Court keened to remind that ministers do not have any right to be opposed to its decision.

Article 144 of the Indian consitution said that "all authorities, civil and judicial, in the territory of India shall act in aid of the Supreme Court."

The Court used this moment to also say that it refused to repeal the act of re-criminalization of homosexuality.

In its order, the court said: "Though the statements made by some of the respondents are not appreciable, in the light of the relief prayed for, we are not inclined to entertain the above writ petition. The writ petition is dismissed. However, the question of law is left open."

Roll on the elections!
