Parliamentarians of India has once again failed to take the bill, which was removed from the Criminal Code, the punishment for gay sex. Politicians have left it as it is already the second time in the last three months: 58 deputies voted against the amendment, 14 – in favor, one abstention.

MP Shashi Tharoor National Congress (Shashi Tharoor) has long been fighting for the abolition of the relic of the colonial era, which was restored in India the Supreme Court decision in 2013.

Shashi wrote on Twitter: “This is a bitter disappointment: my bill amending article 377, was not accepted. Several deputies, who promised to vote “For” were absent the vote. Bigotry and homophobia of the Indian People’s Party faced with indifference and prejudice of the opposition. We’ll have to leave the matter to the Supreme Court. The Indian culture has never been intolerance towards any sexual orientation, no wonder our ancestors worshiped including Ardhanari (androgynous deity combined form of Shiva deity and his consort Parvati”.
