Actress Sonam Kapoor expressed her anger and views over spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar‘s recent comment on homosexuality. Sonam, in a series of tweets condemn the spiritual guru’s comment and also explained what she understood of homosexuality. Check out her tweets.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s recent remark on homosexuality has landed him in a controversial situation. Speaking at JNU, while responding to a student, who asked how he should deal with ill-treatment by his friends and family over his sexual orientation, Sri Sri said that being homosexual is a “tendency” that “may change” later. “This is your tendency now. Just acknowledge it and accept it, and know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I’ve seen many men who were gay, later on turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal — what are called straight people — end up being gay later in life.”

However, he later added that his sexuality is a ‘tendency’ which is not permanent. “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.”

Soon after Alia Bhatt and Devdutt Pattanaik, who was tagged in one of Sonam’s tweet also added their views on the topic.
