Chief Justice Dipak Misra has given out the verdict that our entire country has been waiting for since so long. The Supreme Court has finally abolished section 377 that criminalised same-sex relationships. The rights of the LGBTQ community will now be treated as equal citizens as the SC has decriminalized homosexuality.
India as a nation has broken through the shackles of an outmoded colonial law and has got its freedom to love. Twitter is exploding with excitement. Everyone is rejoicing the freedom they were longing for. Even the Bollywood celebrities couldn't contain their excitement as they hail the SC's judgement and have flooded Twitter with their tweets. Here's what they have to say! Read on!
