India’s Supreme Court decriminalised homosexuality a year ago, but in an attempt to keep order in their ranks, the Indian army is trying to punish gay sex.

India Today reported that while the general says nothing will be passed in violation of last year’s ruling, the army has an act that punishes “unbecoming conduct.” The army argues that homosexuality falls under the act.

"We have to think of the environment in the barracks of the soldiers. Nothing should lead to lowering their morale,” officials in the Adjutant General's branch said, according to India Today.

The army official says that gay sex poses a “command and control problem,” and can lead to “severe discipline issues.” The official didn’t specify what the punishment for gay sex would be.
