The ‘marriage license’ is no more – RTE

Marriage licenses have been abolished in the state.

The move is part of a crackdown on gay marriages in India, where gay men are still persecuted by the state’s religious police and police stations.

There have been more than 2,500 gay men killed since 2013 in India’s vast south-east, and more than 1,000 arrested.

Last year, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Indian constitution’s prohibition on same-sex marriage, but ruled that states can legally redefine marriage.

On Monday, Chief Justice of India (retired) S.K. Thakur ruled that a constitutional amendment passed in 2013 would no longer apply to the Indian states that had already abolished the ban.

However, the state of Tamil Nadu, which had abolished marriage, did not act.

In June, Tamil Nadu became the first state in India to pass a bill to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
