Huma is going to be part of a poetic campaign called 'Ishq ki Ijaazat' which will be launched online. The initiative is not an angry statement against Article 377, but a dialogue which implores, nudges and converses, a press release issued here said.
Huma agreed to be a part of the project and rendered poetry effortlessly. "I believe everyone should have the freedom to choose for themselves," Huma said in a statement here. The poetic campaign is not about sexual preferences.
It is about a basic right that every human being deserves to be able to love with dignity, and not prejudice, the release said. The poem has been penned by brother duo Satyanshu and Devanshu Singh.
