It seems like the Supreme Court’s historic verdict on Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalizes homosexuality has given so much confidence to a certain section of the LGBT community. Yes, it was a landmark judgment and a victory of love. Well, just days after the Supreme Court abolished the law, a former employee of Tech Mahindra filed a complaint alleging harassment and discrimination against his then-team manager.

According to reports, Tech Mahindra ex-employee Gaurav Probir Pramanik has written a mail to his previous manager after the Supreme Court’s landmark order citing a 2015 incident where the manager concerned had allegedly made “sweeping generalisation and stereotyping of someone’s sexuality”.

 

 

In the mail, Pramanik reportedly accused the manager of making mocking judgment. The managers further said that his effeminate nature had affected his work.

He further alleged that the manager made a mockery out of a religious minority and a sexual minority despite being a leader at a company.

Meanwhile, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra on September 11 took to Twitter and said the company is investigating the matter and “will ascertain the facts and see that the outcome is fair and just”.

 



 

Mahindra in another tweet assured that the group celebrates diversity at the workplace and that “fairness and dignity” of an individual are enshrined in the core value of the company.

 

 

The IT company said in a separate tweet that it will undertake a thorough investigation and take steps as necessary. Terming the issue as “disturbing”, the company wrote and posted:

Needless to mention, on September 6, India’s Supreme Court in a historic ruling scrapped a colonial law which criminalizes homosexuality. According to the Indian Express, it is said that Pramanik has in his mail said that he had promised to write to the manager “the day IPC Section 377 was scrapped and being a homosexual in a country as great as India was legal”. Well, we wish the outcome in the above-said matter to be fair and just.
