Officials in the Indian Army want to keep punishing officers for being gay despite the fact that homosexuality was decriminalised in the country last year. Officials have reportedly approached the Ministry of Defence over concerns that gay officers are going “unnoticed and unpunished” and have said they need to ensure discipline in the army. Furthermore, they said they wanted to continue punishing gay soldiers because it would act as a deterrent against immoral acts. Speaking to local media on Wednesday, General Ashwani Kumar, who is Adjutant General of the Indian Army, said things can be “legally right but ethically wrong.”
