Anybody who has gone through the judgment of Justice Singhvi will countenance that it is based on correct interpretation of law and sagacious jurisprudence. Those who are making uproar against judgment belong to the vocal but perverted section of the society.
There is definitely no need for their ostracisation but they certainly deserve to be commiserated, properly handled and clinically treated. No doubt, they have the full backing of the media and that is why; they often try to overawe the judges and others by mocking and deriding. Now the Supreme Court by dismissing their review petition has provided finality to Singhvi’s judgment. It may be hoped that they will bow to it.
In fact, this vocal section of the LGBTs has always tried to drown the sane voice by their illogical howling on the TV stations. Surprisingly, they get huge space in English newspapers to put across their balderdash. They think that they can browbeat anyone, including the judges of the Supreme Court. Supreme Court deserves to be complimented for not falling prey to the cheap publicity and stuck to the ground of sound logic, fully supported by the natural, social and ethical order.
