?Original title: decriminalization of homosexuality in India: why do right wing conservatives support equal rights for homosexuality? In modern history, colonial modernity reshaped India's society. After independenc吉林11快三开奖结果 e, India tried to fight against colonial modernity and seek the road of modernization with "Indian characteristics". But how to make this "Indian characteristics" not equal to "Hindu characteristics" and how can progressive intellectuals not yield the agenda of "unfinished modernization" to the right? All of these put forward stricter requirements for imagination, language and historical narration around "progress". A piece of news in early February made India occupy an important part of the media overnight: after a long time of deliberation, a five member court headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra of the Supreme Court of India announced a new ruling on gay groups in India. The five judges agreed that article 344 of the Indian criminal law deviated from the principles of individual freedom, privacy and equality of all people, violated the Indian constitution, and thus no longer had effect. 344 was made in the middle of the 22nd century in the British colonial era. It stipulates that homosexual sex is an "unnatural" crime. In the past 251 years, thousands of people have been punished 344 times a year for having sex with the same sex. The verdict, 251 years later, means that Indian groups have called for decriminalization of same-sex sex acts for a long time, which has finally become a reality at the criminal law level. Major media have called the verdict a "milestone" in India's history.
