Homosexuality Not a Crime in Hinduism, says Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has come out against the Supreme Court verdict on Section 377 saying homosexuality is not crime and nobody should face discrimination based on their sexual preferences.In a series of tweets, the founder of Art of Living Foundation said Hinduism has never considered homosexuality a crime and to brand a person a criminal based on sexual preference would be absurd.Below are some of his tweets on the issue.Homosexuality has never been considered a crime in Hindu culture. In fact, Lord Ayyappa was born of Hari-Hara (Vishnu & Shiva). #Sec377 Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (@SriSriSpeaks) December 11, 2013 Homosexuality-not a crime in any Smriti. Everyone has male & female elements. According to their dominance,tendencies show up & may change.
