All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict on same sex marriages and said, "It is not up to the courts to decide who gets married under what law… my faith and my conscience say that marriage is only between a man and a woman. This is not a question of decriminalisation like in the case of PIC Section 377, it is about recognition of marriage."

Owaisi, in a post on X (Twitter), said, "I am concerned about an observation made from

the bench that transgender people can marry under the Special Marriages Act and Personal Laws. This is not a correct interpretation as far as Islam is concerned as Islam does not recognise marriage between two biological males or two biological females."

He said he agreed with Justice S. Ravindra Bhat that "a gender-neutral interpretation of the Special Marriage Act may not be equitable at times and can result in women being exposed to vulnerabilities in an unintended manner."
