A petition was submitted to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, challenging its October 17 verdict that denied legal recognition to same-sex marriages in India. The petitioner, Udit Sood, labeled the ruling "contradictory," asserting that "the discrimination faced by the queer community is acknowledged in the verdict, but the cause of the discrimination is not removed." He also pointed out that the government's stance suggests LGBTQ individuals are perceived as "a problem."
