The Union Cabinet on Monday cleared bills seeking to amend criminal laws in India, allowing Union Home Minister Amit Shah to table them in the ongoing Parliament Winter Session, per NDTV. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the cabinet opposed two suggestions of the Parliamentary Standing Committee of Home Affairs—concerning adultery and homosexual sex. The proposed legislation aims to replace India's British-era criminal laws.
