Sonam Kapoor Expresses Disapproval Over Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Comment On Homosexuality

The outspoken Sonam Kapoor never bows down from addressing controversial issues and has been a sort of social justice warrior of late. She recently took to Twitter to express her views on Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s comments on homosexuality, which she found incredibly distasteful. Joining her was Alia Bhatt, who retweeted her tweet and referred to it as an “OMG kinda moment”.

It all started when Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was at Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi recently to speak at the 13th Nehru Memorial Lecture and a student brought up the taboo subject of homosexuality, asking the God-man what he should do to avoid being mistreated by his friends and family for being gay.

He told the troubled boy that he shouldn’t bother what others thought of him and added, “You treat yourself better, doesn’t matter how others treat you. You don’t think you are sick or something is wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you, but…if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.”

He later said that homosexuality is a ‘tendency’ which is not permanent. He said, “This is your tendency now…just acknowledge it, accept it, and know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I’ve seen many men who were gay later turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal, who are called straight people, end up being gay later in life. I would like you to focus beyond the body identity.”

This particular statement enraged Sonam to take to Twitter to express how ignorant and distasteful his comment was and she said that, “Homosexuality is not a ‘tendency’ it’s something you are born as and is absolutely NORMAL. To tell someone you can change is irresponsible.”
