New Delhi, Nov 15: Spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is caught, unknowingly, by Bollywood beauties. He was in JNU to deliver 13th Nehru Memorial lecture and a student made confession to his homosexuality leanings and how he was being misunderstood and discarded due to this. To this the godman replied: "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."
"This is your tendency now...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," he told the student.
Sonam Kapoor, the talented actress who is known to speak her mind and doesn't shy away from calling a spade a spade was quick to respond.
“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,” she wrote.
She called him a "MORON" in one of her Instagram stories, she wrote off his opinion in a series of tweets saying that it was "irresponsible" to make such comments.
She went on to add, "Homosexuality is not a ‘tendency’ it’s something you are born as and is absolutely NORMAL. To tell someone you can change is irresponsible.” She added: “WTF is wrong with god men, if you want to learn something about Hinduism and culture it’s better to follow @HindolSengupta & @devduttmyth.”
This comment of hers was supported by Alia Bhatt too. ALi called it a ‘OMG kinda moment!.’
Sonam is said to have supported the issue since a long time. At an event held in May 2016, Sonam had said, "It’s a basic human right. It’s not about lesbian, gay, male, female or transsexual. It’s about being able to be who you want to be and being somebody who is just themselves. I have advocated that from the beginning of my career."
