It's a proud moment when valuable people from top industries share their view points on country's important events.

We appreciate when designers from the fashion industry lauds the Supreme Court's verdict that decriminalised Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) terming it as a historical judgment.

Bollywood fashion designer, Manish Malhotra took to Instagram and wrote, "Love Conquers All #section377 #love #equality #pride #india"

Ace designer Rohit Bal also took to Instagram, shared a picture and wrote some meaningful sentences. It says, " In a historic judgement for India, the Supreme Court (SC) has ruled that consensual adult sex is not a crime saying sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it. The judgement by a Constitution bench of the country’s top court, has defanged the British-era Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deemed that gay sex is a punishable offence."

"Today’s judgement heralds a new dawn for personal liberty and is a major victory for the LGBTQ community that has been fighting this battle for freedom. #RohitBal #Freedom #section377", the post read further.
