India allows extortion of gays, comparable to Russia
Much as in Russia, gay men in India are afraid to go to police when they are attacked or robbed after encounters. But, while Russia ironically has no sodomy law (“just” a propaganda law), in India the unwillingness of the Supreme Court to overturn India’s British-colonial sodomy laws adds fuel to the problem. The Wall Street Journal has a story here on p. A6 Thursday July 9. Britain overturned its own sodomy law in 1967, fifteen years after Alan Turing.
