Published: February 8 2016 12:05 am Supreme Court Related News Last week the 16-year-old Naz Foundation case got a fresh lease of life Approaching the Supreme Court to activate its narrowest of reliefs the curative the petitioners walked out of the courtroom with something unexpected The likeliest outcome had been a dismissal given the court’s limited record with curative petitions The hoped-for outcome had been for the three-judge bench to admit and start hearing the matter on the limited grounds that a curative constitutes In the end the court decided to help us dream again By referring the matter to a five-judge Constitution bench the court has helped us dream a little bigger than usual What happens next What does this mean for the case Of what matter might our constitutional aspirations be composed One could give a cautious measured response and locate the answer in more established doctrine But a tempered response would not do justice to a situation so gloriously unprecedented One of the wonders of this litigation has been how it has added to our larger vocabulary of justice how for instance the Delhi High Court decision revitalised Ambedkar’s notion of constitutional morality Even when the decision was struck down in Koushal this particular conception went from strength to strength in mainstream discourse So with possibilities now multiplying with five judges of the Supreme Court gearing up to sit on a matter involving “significant constitutional interpretation” here is my wild little dream I hope that the court finally seizes upon the chance to expressly recognise a fundamental right to love Even though love as a constitutional right has never been expressly articulated in Indian jurisprudence this isn’t as far-fetched a notion as one might think For one this very litigation has been gradually inching towards the idea When Naz Foundation a Delhi-based NGO working on HIV/AIDS-related issues approached the Delhi High Court back in 2001 the mainstay of their argument was the right to health The factual foundation focused on how Section 377 impeded HIV/AIDS-prevention efforts by rendering outreach workers vulnerable to prosecution and thus violated the constitutional right to health Intimacy at this point was not quite at the foreground of the matter A few years into the process a group of NGOs under the name Voices Against 377 impleaded themselves into the case Significantly the intervention brought together affidavits from a range of individuals talking about their specific experiences of marginalisation under the law The affidavits brought a range of lived experiences into the courtroom One of them was the story of a gay man’s experience of coming out and navigating homophobia It also brings in the language of love He notes “I had fallen in love with a man we were in a romantic relationship My parents accepted him as my boyfriend and treated him as a part of our family We had a deep bond and a caring and loving relationship Despite this acceptance we were unable to feel equal to other intimate relationships which are recognised under the law of this country” The language of love opened the door towards a constitutional rights articulation focused on dignity autonomy and privacy The Naz Foundation decision affirmed this The operative paragraph of the judgment was simple — if you are a consenting adult having sexual relations within a private domain you would not be considered a criminal To get to this holding the judges made some crucial jurisprudential connections including an articulation of the right to privacy that moved away from the idea of a private domain only constituting the four corners of one’s home Instead privacy was an idea that rested in one’s person that protected one’s ability to make decisions about one’s intimate life — decisional privacy What they still didn’t do however is use the word love Four years later the Supreme Court’s reversal of the judgment was met with a large degree of outrage The decision was accurately characterised by Vikram Seth as a bad day for law and love In declaring that the section only dealt with acts and not identities the judges sliced out the idea of relationality from the picture Where is the question of love when all you are asked to refrain from is certain acts of sex Never mind of course the fact that those acts just happen to be associated with a certain section of the population Two months ago as the curative was slowly inching towards its hearing Justice AP Shah who delivered the Delhi High Court judgment gave a public lecture in Delhi He noted how that document had inaugurated a certain conversation in the country compelling a move away from the language of homophobia towards a vocabulary of choice of personal autonomy And then finally for the first time in no uncertain terms he articulated it: It was also essentially about the fundamental right to love With the Supreme Court now lies the potential not just to set right a great wrong but to burnish this idea into the vocabulary of justice Love is an imperilled notion in this country today When it goes against social conventions it is treated as a world-shattering threat: Inter-caste unions are met with honour killings inter-faith relationships are understood as religious insults To recognise a right to love is to create a constitutional claim against these wrongs to send a salvo against intolerance from the highest constitutional court in the country The court has given us hope Now let us see if it alchemises

Fernando For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsThe election to the municipal corporations in Delhi should be about the performance of the incumbent party in the civic bodies right The BJP heads all three corporations and during election time it should be facing tough questions about the generally awful civic affairs in the capital state Interestingly it’s the Arvind Kejriwal-led state government that is facing all the heat The MCD election is gradually taking shape of a referendum on the two-years-old Aam Aadmi Party government rather than a test of popular approval for the BJP which has been in power in the corporations far longer Both the Congress and the BJP have been busy attacking the AAP government The Shunglu Committee report which finds several lapses in the conduct of the government has provided them fresh ammo The findings of the committee —it was set up in 2016 by former Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to look into several decisions taken by the government after it assumed power —has little positive for a party planning to make a big bang entry in the MCDs From appointments to residential accommodation to salaries to hand-picked people the panel finds irregularities in the 404 files it studied No matter which course the findings take later on they will impact the AAP’s prospects in the local elections Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia PTI How The findings take the sheen off the party which never stops claiming it is different from others particularly in the area of corruption The opposition is certain to take it to people aggressively even if it has little to do with civic affairs The aim would be to damage whatever positive perception the party has left among masses The AAP will be too engaged clarifying its position on the allegations to launch its own assault on the BJP Looking at it objectively the AAP has nothing much to lose in the MCD elections It’s making its debut this time and whatever seats it gets would count as gain for the party If its win at least one of the three MCDs it would be a bonus According to poll watchers East Delhi Corporation could land in AAP’s bag if it campaigns right However a poor performance would mean it has made no actual gains in terms of popularity in Delhi The massive assembly election victory two years ago – it won 67 of the state’s 70 assembly seats – was a flash in the pan It would also mean Arvind Kejriwal is no more the strong emerging political force he was made out to be Now that the civic body election is turning out to be a referendum on his government by implication it means it is a referendum on Kejriwal Any honest assessment of him would reveal that he has only managed to send confusing signals about himself ever since he took over power most of it negative Once a hero of the middle class and the underclass it’s not clear who he represents now While a few of his measures such as mohalla clinics and efforts to revamp school education have been appreciated it is not clear where he stands as a political idealist or grassroots reformer His compulsive obsessive Twitter attacks on Naredra Modi many times without rhyme or reason surely has not won him many friends The MCD election would be a reality check for him and his party If he wins handsomely it would be clear that both have entrenched themselves in Delhi’s politics and the BJP and the Congress can no more treat them as political upstarts If they lose then it’s a spiral downward The government would still be there for two more years but it would remain without any moral justification for being there Written by Meghnad Desai | Published: February 22 2015 3:10 am No subsequent government has bothered to remove it; not even the BJP/NDA government of 1998-2004 Related News There was recently much fuss about an advertisement in which the Preamble of the Constitution was reproduced without the words “secular” and “socialist” There is a febrile atmosphere in the country about secularism with some members of the Sangh Parivar misbehaving Prime Minister Narendra Modi did well therefore while celebrating the elevation to sainthood by the Pope of two Catholics to reaffirm his and his government’s commitment to secularism His eloquence was heartfelt as one could see Of course eternal vigilance will have to be exercised by all to guard that basic value The Constitution affirms secularism regardless of the inclusion of that word in the Preamble After all Jawaharlal Nehru never found it necessary to include it in the Preamble nor did the Constituent Assembly insist It was during the particularly sordid episode of fascist dictatorship under Emergency that the words secular and socialist were added Secularism is clearly surplus to requirement but harmless whether in or out of the Preamble But when did India officially become a socialist country One presumes it was during those months when the nation was not a democracy The 42nd Amendment still remains on the books No subsequent government has bothered to remove it; not even the BJP/NDA government of 1998-2004 The Constituent Assembly discussed the issue of declaring India as a socialist country and rejected it At the Awadi session of the Congress the resolution adopted only spoke of a socialist pattern of society Nehru powerful as he was knew that he did not have the support of his party to declare socialism as a goal It was only after the Congress party was converted into a family firm that Indira Gandhi could impose her diktat without fear of a revolt How many of us are aware that the Election Commission requires every political party to affirm that it is socialist Every political party This is a totalitarian diktat Why can a party not be non-socialist Does it not violate the fundamental right of free speech Can one believe that there is no politically-minded group anywhere in India that has heard of the collapse of the Leninist socialist paradigm or of the horrible gulags in the USSR labour camps in China and the genocidal policies of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia all in the name of socialism How well has India done by socialism Look at Malaysia or South Korea both poorer than India in1950 and even in 1960 They are much richer than India because they avoided socialism Pakistan had as good a growth rate as India till 1997 India’s GDP growth rate picked up only when the Congress under temporary non-dynastic leadership launched market-friendly reforms Even so many PSUs continue to make losses Given a monopoly status some do make profit and are taken to be ratnas But no one asks whether the country could have done better by encouraging business from the very beginning rather than building up monopolies It costs the Indian exchequer one-third of its total tax revenue to pay interest on the debt which was incurred in financing these white elephants This means India spends 10 times as much on servicing debt as on health There is socialism for public sector employees civil servants and MPs Their health and housing and children’s education often their travel and food are all paid for by the taxpayer They are the gilded 5 per cent No wonder they love socialism It is the rest of India which pays for this culture This Lutyens socialism is too deeply embedded for any government to challenge It would require moving the national capital from Delhi and building a new capital where MPs can live in more affordable housing That is a distant dream The issue of the totalitarian requirement of declaring every party to be socialist is more urgent Even if there ever was a groundswell for socialism there is no doubt that it has ebbed The Congress has declined till it faces “ an existential crisis” as one of its senior members said The Left parties are about to lose their national status Stop the charade Remove

The two-day visit by Narendra Modi to Sri Lanka the first trip to the island nation by an Indian prime minister in 28 years will hopefully build on the momentum India-Sri Lanka relations have achieved since Maithripala Sirisena was elected president in January Bilateral engagement at the highest levels has helped calm New Delhi’s apprehensions about Colombo’s foreign policy preferences The externalities that have shaped relations between the neighbours in the past few years — mainly the civil war in Sri Lanka and its impact on Tamil politics in India which in turn had a bearing on coalition governments in New Delhi — have altered Both governments must seize the moment and lift the relationship to the next level Admittedly the intemperate remark made by Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe with regard to Indian fishermen during Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj’s Colombo visit has stirred up some unpleasantness Wickremesinghe was quoted as saying that his navy was justified in firing at Indian fishermen who trespass into Lankan waters Indian fishermen are periodically arrested by Colombo for allegedly crossing the international maritime boundary line (IMBL) These “intrusions” must be seen against a larger backdrop the livelihoods of the fishing community both Indian and Sri Lankan Certainly “trespassers” could be warned even apprehended but firing at unarmed civilians who may have unintentionally crossed national waters is extreme Colombo’s complaints about overfishing in the waters the two countries share are valid: India may have to reduce the fisheries capacity that grew exponentially during the civil war in Sri Lanka Both countries could work together and ensure that maritime resources are equitably shared Meanwhile they should institute a mechanism for the early release of fishermen held for crossing the IMBL Wickremesinghe’s unusually belligerent remark could also have a local context With parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka likely in summer perhaps his was an attempt to pander to the nationalist discourse Such domestic compulsions must not hold back Lankan politicians from making the most of Modi’s visit by firming up ties with
