Teenager, family assaulted by Homophobes

Now homophobia is becoming visible and violent in Delhi and its suburbs, if this incident can beĀ  taken seriously. Some observers say that there is an undercurrent of hate being generated for LGBT groups because they are not naturally sympathetic to the patriarchal, right wing agendas of fundamentalist religious-political alliances.

  1. It’s very shameful that in a democratic country like India some people are not free to enjoy are live freely especially the LGBT groups. They are also humans,
    and have the right to be as they like.

  2. Some people can never stop showing supremacy infront of the ones who are weak. It’s not just about the LGBT group, but a whole lot of people.
    Not everybody is strong enough to fight and that too uselessly. And these sick people take advantage of this thing.

  3. Because there is lack of support and guidance suicide is the leading cause of death among these LGBT people. Many people are guilty of discrimination against LGBT group whether consciously or unconsciously. As a result it creates a stage of loneliness which should not be done.
