Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code
Privacy as a fundamental right
The five-judge Constitution Bench led by Chief Justice of Dipak Misra has introduced the "Doctrine of Progressive Realisation of Rights" to guard against future attempts to reintroduce that part of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which had made the entire LGBTQ community "unconvicted felons" without the basic rights of a citizen for over a century.
The doctrine of progressive realisation of rights mandates that the laws of a country should be in consonance with its modern ethos, it should be "sensible" and "easy to apply". Using this legal doctrine, as a natural corollary, Chief Justice Misra has held that once a right is recognised and given to the public, it cannot be taken back by the state at a later date. Once a step is taken forward, there is no going back.
