Same Sex Couples can’t be Indian family: Modi Government in Court

Today, the Central Government has made its stand clear in the Delhi High Court on gay marriages. Responding to a number of petitions filed in the court, the government has opposed gay marriage. The government also said that homosexuals living together cannot be considered a family.

The Central Government, while presenting its stand in the Delhi High Court, said that courts can only assess the existing rights. However it cannot exercise its judicial decision and create new rights. The demand made by the petitioner to give legal recognition to gay marriage is completely wrong and unrecoverable.

The government also told the court that the question as to whether to allow homosexual relationships was entirely within the jurisdiction of the legislature. It could never be part of the jurisdiction of the judiciary.
