Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his condolences for the victims of Orlando shooting during which 49 people were shot dead in a gay club. “Shocked at the shootout in Orlando, USA. My thoughts & prayers are with the bereaved families and the injured,” he wrote on June 12.

 

The Modi government does not have a clear stand on the issue. Reportedly, BJPspokesperson Bizay Sonkar Shastri has said in the past, “Going against the nature is dangerous for human beings. This (homosexuality) is a criminal act. It must be stopped. For this purpose, we need Section 377” but added that these are his personal views. Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also called homosexuality“unnatural”. However, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley can be quoted as saying “When millions of people world over are having alternative sexual preferences, it is too late in the day to propound a view that they should be jailed. The Delhi High Court’s view appears more acceptable.”
