These were some petitioners, Bharatnatyam dancer Navtej Singh Johar, journalist Sunil Mehra, Ritu Dalmia(restaurant owner), Aman Nath(Neemrana forts co-founder) and Ayesha Kapur(businesswomen); challenged the order on section 377; they even said they were living in fear of being punished. They fought for the right of LGBT community and questioned the court for the rights of the humans.

In 2009, in a response to a petition filed by Naz Foundation, Delhi High Court narrated about Section 377, which says; it is a violation of the fundamental rights promised by the constitution.

In 2013, however, Supreme court reversed the decision of Delhi High Court that decriminalised gay sex and asked the parliament to decide on the law.
