What are the possible options before the #SupremeCourt? Maxamilist, lean maximalist, minimalist...
See our pre-judgement matrix #Section377 #SCObserver…
The 5-judge Bench assembled at 11.30 to announce its judgement on #Section377. #CJIDipakMisra is reading the judgement. There are four concurring opinions
#Section377 has been struck down. #CJI says, 'it is irrational and manifestly arbitrary'
#CJI continues:
1) self-determination lies at the core of the concept of identity
2) the #SoureshKoushal's minuscule minority rationale is constitutionally impermissible
#SCO #SCObserver
3) Constitution is transformative in nature: it should be interpreted in a meaningful manner keeping with the changing times
4) constitutional not public morality must be the rule of law
#SCO #SCObserver
...5) the Court must strive to recognise the right to live with dignity, an internationally recognised human right

#SupremeCourt has partially struck down #Section377 by decriminalising consensual same-sex intercourse. Non-consensual sexual acts and bestiality are still criminalized under 377
#Section377 #SCObserver #SCO
#Section377 #JusticeNariman and #JusticeChandrachud are reading their concurring opinions.
Nariman: homosexuality is not a mental disorder
Chandrachud: 'the lethargy of the law is manifest again'
#SCO #SCObserver
#JusticeMalhotra is reading her concurring opinion: 'History owes an apology to the members of this community and their families for the delay in remedying the injustice done to them'
