Following the Supreme Court’s verdict decriminalising consensual same-sex relationships, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Thursday, 6 September, said they still “do not support such relationships.” While stating that they do not think it is a crime, the RSS has maintained that same-sex marriages and relationships are “neither natural nor desirable.”

According to ANI, Arun Kumar, Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh of RSS, has said:

Like the Supreme Court, we too do not consider this a crime. However, same sex marriage and relationship are neither natural nor desirable which is why we do not support such relationships.

Arun Kumar also asserted that this subject has to be dealt at both social, as well as psychological levels.

Traditionally, the Indian society too does not recognise such relations. A man usually learns by experiences which is why this subject has to be dealt at social and psychological levels.

Homosexuality Is Like Having 6 Fingers: Subramanian Swamy

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Subramanian Swamy called homosexuality a “genetic disorder.” He also said that there is a need for “medical research to rectify it.”

Of course what happens in someone’s private life should not be of anyone’s concern, neither they should be punished. It is basically a genetic disorder, like someone having six fingers. Medical research must be done to rectify it.

After saying that nobody should be punished for homosexuality, Swamy also expressed a hope for the next Government to move a seven judge bench to set aside Thursday’s five judge bench order.

It is the American game. Soon there will be gay bars here where homosexuals can go. HIV will spread. So, after looking at the consequences I hope the next Govt will move a 7 judge bench to set aside this 5 judge bench order.
