NHRC writes to implement report on same sex marriage


Feb 11, 2016-

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has asked the government to implement the Supreme Court’s directive and the report prepared on the same sex marriage. 

The NHRC has written to the government to implement the SC’s verdict issued on December 21, 2007 and the report submitted to the government last year in regard to the sexual minorities. 

NHRC Officer Basudev Bajgain said that the government was urged to implement the SC verdict and report. 

Speaking at the concluding ceremony of the first national workshop on intersex, Bajgain said that discrimination against intersex within the sexual minorities was disappointing. 

He, however, admitted that the NHRC was working to ensure rights of same sex and third gender but there is not adequate information on intersex. 

Under Secretary at the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare Bharat Sharma, representative of UNICEF Upama Malla, executive director of Blue Diamond Society Manisha Dhakal and others expressed their opinion for the rights of the sexual minorities. RSS
