In December 2013, homosexual sex was made illegal in India. Do you think this decision is right or wrong. Why was the decision made?

These links have given me insite into the issue, and if you are unaware of what is happening may help you as well..

    Feb 13 2014: I shall recall one personal experience here. Sorry if it is off-topic.
    Just a week ago I was required to testify as a witness in a law suit before a high court judge. When I stood on the docks the court clerk came along, asked my name and then produced a book covered with red cloth and asked me to place my hand on it and take an oath of telling the truth and only the truth.
    I asked the judge if it is necessary to take that oath by holding that religious book. The Judge said : No.
    I took the oath without touching the book.
    Later on, I was told that it is even not necessary to address the judge as 'my lord'.
