#Section377: Supreme Court declares ‘Homosexuality is not a crime in India’

In a historic judgement, the Supreme Court has scrapped the section 377 which criminalised homosexuality in India. The final verdict was supposed to come out on July 17 but it reserved its judgement. Today it was read out in the court. The Centre had given the Supreme Court the power to decide on this. Since years, LGBT groups have been petitioning the government to do away with this section as it attaches a stigma to individuals from the community. Finally, the court has given a verdict everyone is rejoicing. Check out the verdict here… (Also read: Section 377: Saumya Tandon, Abhishek Bajaj, Shivani Tomar root for LGBT rights)

Celebs have always opposed this archaic rule and finally, the Apex court has given its verdict in their favour. Saif Ali Khan had said in our interview, “I think we also had a transgender in Kaalakaandi. I was reading in the New York Times that we are handling it quite well. And people are quite open in India. There are a lot of liberal voices in India also, pushing this forward. The fact that this girl (Kubbra Sait) has been cast in that is a good sign. It’s pop culture and pop art giving voices and strength to movements like this… which our industry is defending, ideas like this and it’s a wonderful thing. It is something that needs to be torn up and changed. Any progressive country cannot have this retarded law.”
