NEW DELHI: The government on Thursday refused to react to the Delhi High Court judgement that legalised homosexuality. The only comment came from the Union Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily who said the government would examine the Delhi High Court judgment in detail.

“We need to examine the details of the judgment. Let me examine it,” Mr. Moily told the reporters here.

Union Minister for Home Affairs P. Chidambaram and Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni also declined to comment saying that the matter did not come up for discussion in the Union Cabinet meeting.

BJP yet to decide

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Murli Manohar Joshi suggested he was not too happy with the judgement, while Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said the party had not taken any view on it.
