  • Status is not correct "The Conversion Therapy is banned only for evidence-based medical practitioners, who are regulated under National Medical Commission. But, faith-based practitioners and indigenous medical practitioners such as Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa, and Homeopathy practitioners can provide Conversion Therapy. https://theleaflet.in/national-medical-commission-declares-conversion-therapy-as-professional-misconduct-but-it-is-not-enough/"
  • Other "This is just a hign court judge's rambling. If it were something like a constitutional declaration from the supreme court then newer law would have been passed. No special laws exist in india banning conversion therapies. "
  • Status is not correct "The information stated is partially correct that conversion therapy is banned, but that is only in one state, (The state of Tamil Nadu), where a high court (The state court) declared the practice to be crap, this ruling does not apply the rest of India and thus classifying India as a country where conversion therapy is banned is purely crap, as it is rampant everywhere and is only stopped by one state court "
