Bollywood celebrities and other prominent journalists have welcomed the Supreme Court verdict of legalising the same sex law. The apex court headed by five-judge bench had ruled out section 377 calling the colonial-era law irrational and arbitrary that prohibits “carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal”. The decision has been welcomed calling it progressive India by the supporters.

Today is an important day. Retweet if you want to see an old colonial law brought down and justice be delivered to those who have fought and suffer for it. #377Verdict
