On his view of the judgement
I am a little disappointed that after the Delhi High Court had taken such a liberal and realistic view in the context of contemporary values and relationships, the Supreme Court has reversed that and upheld the legality of Section 377. This is a law that represents a 19th-century mindset. The world has changed in this 21st century and there are millions of people who, as an expression of their sense of freedom, express themselves in different ways, including sexually, and I think we must respect them for that. Hindu culture is essentially inclusive and liberal; our Constitution embraces liberal values. I don’t think the courts should look at such issues any differently.
