Homosexuality a disorder, says RSS-backed survey

Published

on

Amidst the backdrop a Supreme Court bench currently hearing petitions seeking legal validation of gay marriage, a survey backed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has termed homosexuality a “disorder” which it claims will spread further if same-sex marriage is legalized.

According to the survey released by by Samwardhini Nyas, an affiliate of the women’s wing of the RSS, doctors and medical professionals unequivocally believe homosexuality to be a disorder which must not be allowed to spread.

A senior functionary of the Rashtra Sevika Samiti—the women’s wing of the RSS—claimed that the Samwardhini Nyas survey was based on on 318 responses collected across the country covering medical practitioners from eight different pathies of treatment from modern science to Ayurveda.

The functionary claimed that the in their response to the survey, almost 70 percent of the doctors and allied medical professionals classified homosexuality as a disorder while 83 percent of the respondents “confirmed transmission of sexual disease in homosexual relations.”

The Rashtra Sevika Samita affiliate said that as per the survey over 67 per cent of the doctors in their response to the  questionnaire felt that homosexual parents cannot raise their offspring properly.

The RSS-affiliate said that survey clearly demonstrates that legalizing same-sex marriages would create disorder in the society instead curing those afflicted by homosexuality and helping them become normal again.

The right-wing group also batted for counselling as a “better option” to “cure homosexuality-afflicted” people from a “psychological disorder.”

The survey recommended that public opinion must be taken into account before a decision is made on the demands seeking legal validation of gay marriages.

A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court comprising, Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and justices S K Kaul, S Ravindra Bhat, P S Narasimha and Hima Kohli, is currently hearing a batch of pleas seeking legal validation of same-sex marriage in India. The hearing commenced on April 18.

As per the RSS-backed survey, over 57 percent of respondents did not favor the Supreme Court’s intervention in a sensitive social issue like homosexuality.

The chief minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar on Wednesday, went to inaugurate a ‘digital library’ in Banka district where he noticed the language of the signboard of the newly established ‘digital library’ and asked the officials to change the signboard as the information was written in the English language.

CM Kumar said he respects the English language but  Hindi is a part of the tradition. He further schooled the officials saying you are ending the importance of the Hindi language, adding that it is our language. Officials present at the moment were asked to change the board by CM Kumar.  

In March, Kumar made headlines for ridiculing a farmer who used English words in his speech at an event, demonstrating his consistent disapproval of the use of English in public settings.

Nitish Kumar reminded the farmer that using smartphones during COVID-19 was causing people to distance themselves from their own language in Bharat, Bihar.

Look at what has happened to people. They are distancing themselves from their language, Kumar interrupted, when people learn words through smartphones. Is it England, Kumar questioned the farmer. Your language should be used since you have been conversing with farmers in Bihar and Bharat, Nitish Kumar said.

As per the reports, the Chief Minister of Bihar carried out unannounced inspections at several government offices and discovered that a considerable number of ministers from his cabinet were missing in action. The observations revealed that while the majority of the ministers belonging to his party, JD(U), were present, a significant number of ministers from his alliance party, RJD, were found to be absent, the reports added.

According to reports, the development occurred amidst speculations that CM Kumar may switch alliances and join the BJP.

During the G20 event, the Prime Minister cordially introduced Nitish Kumar to none other than the esteemed US President Joe Biden.

It was worth noting that this was the initial encounter between PM Modi and Nitish Kumar following the latter’s party, JD(U), ending its affiliation with the BJP last year. Instead, they joined the Mahagathbandhan and formed a government with RJD and other opposition parties.
