India's law minister, Kapil Sibal, said Thursday that his government will seek judicial review of last week's Supreme Court ruling reinstating the country's 160-year-old anti-homosexuality law. The decision to appeal the case rather than seek to repeal the law through parliamentary action is expected to slow the process of overturning the ruling, as five justices must review the decision. Sibal's announcement comes days after LGBT activists across India and around the world engaged in a "day of rage" that featured worldwide protests against the ruling.
