Aamir, John Abraham, Onir speak up for gay rights
‘I am most disappointed with this judgement. It feels very intolerant and violative of basic human rights. It's a shame,’ Aamir said in a statement.
Section 377 of the IPC holds that a same gender sexual relationship is against the order of nature and is an offence.
My Brother…Nikhil director Onir expressed his views on his Twitter handle.
He wrote Wednesday: ‘A dark day in the history of judiciary and human rights in India. I am angry by the Supreme Court ruling on IPC 377.’
Actor-producer John Abraham, who acted as a cross-dresser in Vishal Bhardwaj's 7 Khoon Maaf, is also disappointed by the decision.
‘India has harboured archaic prejudices once again. The Supreme Court has criminalised homosexuality,’ John tweeted post the judgement.
