More than a year after the Supreme Court decriminalised gay sex and adultery in two separate judgements, prompting pride movements to spread their wings like never before, the Indian army feels it would be best to undo these decisions to ensure discipline in the forces. According to a report released by PTI, sources claim that the army has approached the Ministry of Defence over concerns that adultery and gay officers within the force are going "unnoticed and unpunished". They believe that these acts need to stay punishable as they act as a deterrent against moral corruption and that it could create a command and control problem if they were to go unpunished.
