Bollywood Celebs Cheer on #377Verdict

Section 377 of the IPC stated: “Whoever voluntarily has carnal inter¬course against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with 1[imprisonment for life], or with impris¬onment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.”  This law dates back to 1861 and criminalises sexual activities against the order of nature. And finally, it’s a historical day for the country as the Supreme Court today declared that homosexuality is not an offence in India. 

Reading out the judgement, Chief Justice of India, Dipak Mishra said, “Section 377 is irrational and arbitrary. Sexual orientation of an individual is natural and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a violation of freedom of expression.” After the spectacular verdict was announced, people have started to pour in their reactions on Twitter that you really can’t miss out! Joining the list, Bollywood celebs have also reacted to this! Check out the following tweets!

Congratulations, India!
