New Delhi [India], May 11 (ANI): The Supreme Court Constitution bench on Thursday reserved judgement on various petitions pertaining to marriage equality rights for the LGBTQIA+ community.
The five-judge Constitution bench comprising of the Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, S Ravindra Bhat, Hima Kohli and PS Narasimha is dealing with a batch of petitions pertaining to marriage equality rights for LGBTQIA+ community.
“We are reserving the judgement,” said CJI DY Chandrachud.
The order was reserved after counsel from all sides concluded their arguements.
Constitution bench has begun the hearing on the matter on April 18 and the hearing went on for nearly 10 days.
Supreme Court is handling various petitions seeking legal recognition of same-sex marriage. One of the petitions earlier raised the absence of a legal framework allowing members of the LGBTQIA+ community to marry any person of their choice.
The court has clarified that it will deal with the issue under the provisions of the Special Marriage Act and will not touch the personal laws on this aspect.
According to one of the petitions, the couple sought to enforce the fundamental rights of LGBTQ+ individuals to marry any person of their choice. It said that “the exercise of which ought to be insulated from the disdain of legislative and popular majorities.” The petitioners, further, asserted their fundamental right to marry each other and prayed for appropriate directions from this Court allowing and enabling them to do so.
The petition was represented by senior advocates Mukul Rohatgi and Saurabh Kirpal.
Centre has opposed the plea and said that parliament and not the court, should consider the issue.
National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) on Thursday told the Supreme Court that the entire architecture of laws is from the perspective of the welfare of the child being paramount and adoption is not an alternative to biological birth in families of heterosexual couples.
Centre on April 18 issued a letter to States, asking them to give their opinion on the issues relating to Same-sex marriage.
States of Assam, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan have opposed the legal recognition of same-sex marriages in the country whereas Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Manipur and Sikkim sought more time to give their opinion on the same-sex marriage issue. (ANI)
