LIVING WITH PRIDE: Lawyers Responsible For The 377 Verdict Come Out As A Couple!

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Lawyers Menaka Guruswamy and Arundhati Katju were responsible for the Section 377 verdict and also a reason why today love is love without any restrictions. The LGBTQIA community was tortured and under scrutiny  for all they did was love and these two made sure they love in peace. But, what made us happier was yet another good news these lawyers gave in this morning. Menaka and Arundhati have come out as a couple and people are simply rejoicing this beautiful moment.

On September 6th, the Indian Supreme Court struck down the draconian Victorian era law that criminalized homosexuality.

However, it was not same in the year 2013. The Koushal judgement in 2013 upheld section 377 allowing it to be used to punish even if its consensual same-sex acts.

Emphasising on the 2013 verdict during a debate, Menaka Guruswamy stated, “The loss in 2013 was a loss as lawyers, a loss as citizens. It was a personal loss. It is not nice to be a ‘criminal’ who has to go back to court as a lawyer to argue other cases.”

After the video, the couple took it to Twitter to enjoy the #sareetwitter moment.

 

It was a remarkable judgement by the Supreme court when they decriminalised a 157-year-old British Law. “First step towards vanquishing enemies of prejudice and injustice has to be taken”, read the judgment. We must get rid of prejudice and discrimination. Concept of Constitutional morality creates responsibility of State to protect. Fidelity to constitutional morality must not be confused with popular sentiment.”
