The Akal Takht, the highest temporal body of Sikhs, and the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) managing key Sikh shrines, today disapproved of the Delhi High Court judgement which legalised gay sex among consenting adults.

"This is against the law of nature and the Gurmukh Sedant (sikh principles). We will appeal to the Sikhs not to follow
this unnatural thing (gay sex)," Akal Takht head Jathedar Gyani Gurbachan Singh told PTI on phone.

He said not even in animals and birds such a practice was found.

"When this (gay sex) is not there in the species which are far inferior to us, why as humans should we adopt something
which goes against nature?. The creator of this universe created male and female but having the system (legalising
homosexuality) will be the first step towards destruction of this world," he said.
