SC reads down the 158-year-old colonial law and has allowed gay sex among consenting adults in private. All five judges signed the verdict and finally, homosexuality in India gets legal approval and recognition. Section 377 has been decriminalised and the country, at least most in the country, are rejoicing this historic decision. Among those, happens to be ace designer, Manish Malhotra.
Speaking exclusively to us on the matter, the designer said, "I think it’s a proud moment for India. It’s a kind of freedom that everyone should have and live with, to make your own choices. It’s excellent and I am proud of my India."
Well, this landmark decision by the Supreme Court has the nation celebrating. The court has clearly and finally stated that sexual orientation is a biological phenomenon and states that any discrimination on this grounds is violative of fundamental rights.
