Activists of Students of Islamic Organisation hold placards during a demonstration against an Indian court's ruling on gay sex, in Mumbai July 3, 2009. An Indian court on Thursday ruled gay sex was not a crime, a verdict that will bolster demands by gay and health groups that the government scrap a British colonial law which bans homosexual sex.
