Gay sex not crime, but needs to be treated psychologically: RSS leader Dattatreya Hosabale

New Delhi: RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale, who was yesterday hailed by many for his broad-minded take on homosexuality, on Friday said that though gay sex is not a crime, it needs to be treated psychologically.

Taking to Twitter, Hosabale wrote, “Homosexuality is not a crime, but socially immoral act in our society. No need to punish, but to be treated as a psychological case.”

Hosabale had yesterday said, “Homosexuality should be considered a criminal offence as long as it does not affect the lives of others in society.”

“Sexual preferences are private and personal. Why should RSS express its views in a public forum? RSS has no view on that. It is for people to have their way. Personal preference of sex is not discussed in RSS and we don’t even want to discuss that,” he further added.

Section 377 of Indian Penal Code terms homosexuality as unnatural and carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in jail. Going by the global trends in this regard, there have been demands within the country to decriminalise homosexuality.
