Legality To Same-Sex Marriages Will Shake India: RSS

| Updated: May 10, 2023 19:16

In a letter to the Supreme Court, an RSS affiliate stated that legalising same-sex marriage would undermine the Hindu Marriage Act’s very purpose, and show how liberal ideas from other religions and Western nations are “overpowering” India and changing the “nature of Hinduism.” 

Samwardhini Nyas, an affiliate of the women’s wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), asserts that if same-sex marriage is legalised, it will have “devastating effects” and turn “everything upside down,” in an effort to draw the apex court’s attention to the issue. 

The Rashtra Sevika Samiti affiliate has stated that legalising same-sex marriage will also have an impact on the development and personalities of the children to be raised by such parents as well as affect children “to a great extent” and raise a number of other issues in its letter. 

“Legalising same-sex marriage will vanish the very meaning, motive or belief of the Hindu Marriage Act, clearly depicting how liberal thoughts of other religions or western countries are overpowering our country and affecting the nature of Hinduism,” Shweta Sharma, the legal advisor to Samvardhini Nyas, wrote in the letter addressed to the Supreme Court’s registrar. 

“Bringing any such change or even accepting such relationships will shake the cultural roots of India and the Indian society,” she added. 

A number of petitions seeking legal recognition of same-sex marriage are currently being heard by the five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court, which is presided over by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud. 

Sharma argued that altering the traditional definition of marriage would go against the “fundamental principles of our beliefs and values,” despite the fact that marriage and its rights have changed over time. 

“Legalising same-sex marriage is against our religious and cultural beliefs as marriage is a relation between a man and a woman and not of the same sex,” she said.
