LGBT remains one of the most questionable and controversial things in India. It has been subjected to debate so much that the fear of being an LGBT has gripped the community over the past few years. The result- They cannot come out openly and naturally due to the fear of being judged and bullied.
While our nation believes and practices (supposedly) freedom of speech and expression, some famous personalities have expressed their views about homosexuality in the most absurd and ridiculous ways.
Have a look!
"This is your tendency now. Just acknowledge it and accept it, and know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I've seen many men who were gay, later on, turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal - what is called straight people - end up being gay later in life."
"Homosexuality is a disease. I invite the gay community to my yoga ashram, and I guarantee to cure them of homosexuality."
"The disease of MSM is unnatural and not good for India. We are not able to identify where it is happening as it is less reported also."
"We will state that we support Section 377 because we believe that homosexuality is an unnatural act and cannot be supported."
"LGBT Community are patients who are suffering from a bad mental problem. It's because they watch pornographic movies. The TV channels are to be blamed."
"Legitimizing homosexuality leads to commercial profit since Gay Bars will be opened in all cities on FDI. It is a genetic flaw celebrated."
"Homosexuality should be condemned as it is irreligious and unnatural. We would not allow the western culture to be imposed upon the innocent Indian society. If legalised, these acts, which are contrary to religion, nature, morality and habits, will poison the Indian society."
"Homosexuality is not a crime, but socially immoral act in our society. No need to punish, but to be treated as a psychological case."
65% of India's population consists of youth. Therefore, we have a share of 65% in the Nation's voice. At India Ka Pulse, we asked the country's youth about their take on homosexuality.
That's all for now, folks!
