Sc scraps Section 377
September 6, 2018, will go down in history. The Supreme Court of India just delivered a historic verdict by decriminalizing Section 377. Restoring hope in the legal system of the country, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra scraped the British-era law that the country has been debating for long.
It was a joyous moment for the LGBT community, activists and whole of India. Everyone from Bollywood celebrities to politicians and others started sharing their joy on social media.
One of the first reactions came from Bollywood producer/director Karan Johar:
Historical judgment!!!! So proud today! Decriminalising homosexuality and abolishing #Section377 is a huge thumbs up for humanity and equal rights! The country gets its oxygen back! 👍👍👍💪💪💪🙏🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/ZOXwKmKDp5
