History Owes Apology to LGBTI Community and Kin: SC Judge Malhotra

New Delhi, Sep 6 History owes an apology to the members of the LGBT community and their families for the delay in providing redressal for the “ignominy” and “ostracism” they have faced through the centuries, the Supreme Court said Thursday. Justice Indu Malhotra, who wrote a separate concurring judgement decriminalising consensual gay sex, said the members of this community were compelled to live under the fear of reprisal and persecution which occurred due to the ignorance of the majority to recognise that homosexuality is a “completely natural” condition which is part of a range of human sexuality.
