This article is available (for now anyway) for free on ST online. It's one of the things that I've been really busy with recently.
I'm not going to say much about this. The petition is not about me. It is about the public, the people -- straight, gay, whatever -- who believe that Section 377A is wrong and should be repealed, and are willing to put their names down in writing to stand behind it. It is about helping people have their voice in Parliament. It is about recognising the petitioners, who are working so hard to make this happen.
So if you agree with this view, please go to Repeal377A.com and do your bit. If you disagree, that's OK and thanks for reading this post.
PS. This will be the second time that a petition will be presented to Parliament. The first was in 1985, when JBJ presented a petition by Sivadas s/o Sankaran, about the applicability of Parliamentary privileges to submissions to a Select Committee of Parliament.
