India Today says, "In a unanimous judgement by a 5-judge Supreme Court bench, Section 377 which criminalised gay sex, has been struck down and gay sex is now a legal right. Rainbow scenes and celebrations have exploded outside the Supreme Court." Section 377 that prohits 'unnatural' sexual intercourse was introduced in Indian Constitution during British times. Supreme Court (SC) has struck down this section as it has caused exclusion of certain sections of the population, because of existing stereotypes. Bollywood Producer Karan Johar was one of the first ones to hail the verdict.
