Human rights panel keen on demands of sexual minorities

 The Karnataka State Human Rights Commission will take up suo motu action to protect the interests of sexual minorities, if required.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, C G Hungund, the member of the commission said that the government had been considering the demands of sexual minorities seriously and steps would be taken to ensure justice for them.

“Those who run the government should not have a feeling that strengthening human rights commission would be a hindrance to the government. The post of the commission’s chairman is vacant for the past three years and no attempts have been made to fill the post.

There was a chance to appoint Justice Bannurmath, a Kannadiga, to this post, but the government did not show much interest. As the commission has to ensure justice to all people, it would be better if a person with the knowledge of Kannada becomes its chief,” Hungund added.
