 Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja said that this is the India I want to live in. Not one filled with hate, bigotry,sexism homophobia and intolerance. THIS is the India I love.

Yesterday, India’s Supreme Court legalised consensual sexual relations between adults of the same gender as it partially struck down a British-era law that criminalised homosexuality.

A five-judge Constitution bench of the Indian Supreme Court delivered its unanimous verdict in four separate opinions.

Chief justice Dipak Misra said that as he quashed the cornerstone of Section 377, the law had become a weapon for harassment for the LGBT community. Any discrimination on the basis of sexuality amounts to a violation of fundamental rights.
