  1. According to the 477 paged judgement of the Honorable Supreme Court is just to negate the draconian law of Section 377 of the IPC . That law should be embraced later but first and foremost the legislature should pass a law so that this matter can’t be put forward to a bigger bench that is the bench consisting of all judge of the Supreme Court. The way by which Honorable Judges Chandrachud, Nariman and CJI Mishra debated upon this matter in there respective judgments is commendable. As per me a legislature passed will be an extra weight age on the judgment passed and those going to be passed in the Honorable Supreme Courts and other Subordinate Courts.
