India abstained during a voting at the UNHRC to set up the office of Independent Expert to end discrimination against LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual) persons

Why India took this stand?
  • The government has taken this stand as it has taken into account that the issue of LGBT rights in India is a matter being considered by the Supreme Court under a batch of curative petition.
  • And the Supreme Court is yet to “pronounce” on the issue of rights of LGBT persons
