I'm a supporter of Hindu Nationalism. I think India should be more respectful of its Hindu-Buddhist heritage. I would vote NDA if it actively campaigned for the human rights of sexual minorities.. Historically, Indian culture and philosophy were supportive of sexual minorities and considered their "lifestyles" to be normal and part of their natural rights. A true conservative Hindu should support covering lgbt and gays under human rights. The ruins of how progressive Hindu/Indian culture was can still be seen in the gay cultures of East Asia. The majority of homophobia, as with other negatives in India such as corruption, were implemented by the European colonialists. Homosexuality is openly encouraged by gods and books in Hinduism. It's still possible to see "gays" in the statue-artwork of South Indian temples. In Sri Lanka, the Portuguese actively criticized how gay and evil the ruling king was. The land still has a tradition of supporting third-gender too. On a side note: Am I right in thinking that a South Indian states tend to be more supportive of LGBT rights than the North Indian states? I find it hard to gather information on how progress for sexual minorities varies in each state. I understand that Sri Lanka is very split on the issue of homosexuality too despite being a Hindu-Buddhist South Indian nation.
