Right-Wing Hindu Group Wants Liquor Ban, Mandatory Moral Education to Stop ‘Imported Disease’ of Homosexuality

Like the west, India has its nutty right-wing religious groups and they're just as insane against same-sex marriage and homosexuality. Vishva Hindu Pariṣad, a Hindu right-wing group, is petitioning the government to take action to enforce the recent Supreme Court ruling there:

VhpIn a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, VHP said that the government should treat the spread of the "imported disease" by putting a complete ban on liquor and making moral education mandatory.

Ridiculing the widespread criticism of the SC order which had struck down a Delhi High Court order decriminalising gay sex, the right-wing organisation said homosexuality was "against Indian culture and values".

BJP has also favoured the verdict upholding Section 377 of the IPC, saying it would not support any "un-natural act".
