Delhi Pride Parade: ‘Kashmir maangey azadi’, ‘Bharat Mata wants girlfriend’ slogans raised at the queer parade

This is not a new phenomena. Every time it is the same rhetoric.

‘Azadi’ slogans were raised at the Delhi Queer pride parade held in the national capital yesterday.


In a video clip shared by journalist Bodhisattva Sen Roy, one can hear the chants of ‘Kashmir maangey azadi’, ‘tum police bulao, tum goli chalao, lathi maaro, tum goli chalao… azadi’.

Placards which read ‘Bharat Mata wants a girlfriend’ were also spotted at the Delhi Queer Pride parade.


And some more political slogans targeting the Prime Minister.


Apparently, mocking the Prime Minister during gay pride parade is a ‘perfect response’.


And of course, ‘saffron’ is colour of hate.


This is not a new phenomena. Every time it is the same rhetoric. Which is ironic since the historic judgement where the Supreme Court on Sept 6th 2018 decriminalised homosexuality by partially striking down the colonial era provisions of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code during the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. Had BJP government opposed the case in the Supreme Court as earlier governments had been doing, the ruling would have never come.
