With the historical decision of Honorable Supreme court on Section 377, the India is celebrating the verdict, far beyond the Gay community.
The decision declared by Odisha born Chief Justice Deepak Misra, who is going to handover his reins to his successor, Justice Ranjan Gogoi next month. But it doesn’t seem like everyone is happy with the decision. Previously this has been opposed by Utkal Christian Association. And now specially the right wing Hindu activist group Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh [RSS].
Just after the few hours of the historical judgement RSS reacted to this decision by saying that ‘”The same-sex marriages are not compatible with norms of the Nature, so we do not support such relations. Human beings generally learn from experiences, that is why this issue needs to be taken care of at the social and psychological level’.
But do people really care about this reaction, probably not! Celebration is taking the twitter into storm with the number one hashtag Section 377.
Here are some of the top tweets on Gay-Sex discriminalization.
Letting go of obsolete laws, keeping up with a scientific temper and honouring people’s choices has strengthened our democracy. #Section377

I’m delighted that Indian laws have finally caught up with Indian culture. Traditional ancient Indian culture did not criminalise LGBTQs. I am proud to see modern India finally live up to the liberal values of our great ancestors in this regard.#Section377 #LGBTQ
