Moradabad: Senior Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan on Saturday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict upholding a law criminalising homosexuality, and said gay relationship is unnatural and our religion and culture didn`t approve of it.
"These activities are unhealthy and spread chronic diseases like HIV... We should not imitate the culture of foreign countries where these practices are acceptable," Khan told PTI here.
Claiming that all religions prohibit such activities, he said, "Promoters and supporters of gay relationship are breaking rules of all religions."
Criticising Congress president Sonia Gandhi and his son Rahul for their support to the gay relationship, Khan alleged that Sonia was trying to spread unnatural and negative practices of Europe in India.
The UP minister appealed to all political leaders to refrain from extending their support to gay activists.
