Yesterday, Supreme Court struck down a portion of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, that criminalized private consensual sexual acts between same sex adults. As the verdict was delivered, jubilant LGBT rights activists celebrated on the lawns of the court. The entire nation warmly appreciated the Supreme Court verdict to legalize homosexual behavior between two consenting adults, effectively scrapping Section 377 of IPC and overturning the earlier judgment of the Delhi High Court.

Noted Singer from Kolkata, Soumita Saha who is well known for being vocal about various social issues and literally influencing the youth to focus on it’s positivity also supported the verdict with open arms. “I cannot express in words how good it feels to know about supreme court’s verdict. The judgment closes the door on a dark chapter of Indian history. It marks a new era of equality for millions of people in India. I think youth shall resume faith in judiciary.” says the young singer who made her international debut this year with mega hit song Ishq.

“Sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it. It was highly unfair to penalize people due to their sexual orientation. The Apex Court deserves kudos for correcting the 1861 law, which carried lifetime imprisonment for same sex couples”, said the singing diva.

“Britishers might have left the country in 1947, but we are still under pseudo-British Rule due to laws like Section 377 of IPC. This law was mainly used to blackmail the LGBT community members by Police and other Law Enforcement Agencies”, she added.

“It surprises me that World’s largest democracy actually spent 71 years in granting the LGBT community their Right to Life. On the behalf of the entire country, I would like to apologize to the entire LGBT community. For them, the real freedom starts today”, she further added.
