‘This court can’t make law’: Same-sex marriage struck down in India

India’s top court on Tuesday refused to legalize same-sex marriages, passing the responsibility back to Parliament in a ruling that disappointed campaigners for LGBTQ+ rights in the world’s most populous country.

Chief Justice DY Chandrachud also urged the government to uphold the rights of the queer community and end discrimination against them.

Earlier this year, the five-judge bench heard 21 petitions that sought to legalize same-sex marriage.
