Hrithik Roshan: Being gay is not a diseaseThe issue of gay rights caused another brouhaha on Thursday, with the home ministry calling gay sex "immoral" and "against social order", even seeking a fresh ban on it. Additional Social General (ASG) PP Malhotra appeared for the ministry and argued that Indian society is different from other countries, and could not imitate practices prevalent in foreign countries. "There is a high chance of spreading of diseases through such acts," he contended, opposing the Delhi's High Court order which had in 2009 decriminalised gay sex as provided in Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
While the home ministry later made it clear that Malhotra's opposition did not reflect the government's decision not to take sides on gay sex, gay icon Hrithik Roshan is not ready to sit on the fence. He speaks out against discrimination and more.
