A gay couple, Vernes-Sewratan and Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes, were attacked by a group of men while walking home hand in hand from a party during the early hours of Sunday morning in Arnhem, Netherlands. Ronnie lost four teeth in the attack, while Jasper got away with bruises on his ribs and back.

The attackers, a group of five men called them “disgusting, dirty, homo”, before assaulting the couple.

The police have arrested a 20-year old man and two minor boys of age 14 and 16 in connection with the attack.

To condemn the beating of the married couple, the dutch people held a peaceful march on Wednesday, where protesters walked hand in hand through Amsterdam.

Amid the national outpour of emotion against the attack, Dutch journalist Barbara Barend tweeted a call for “all men (straight and gay) please to just walk hand in hand”.



The hashtag #allemannenhandinhand took off from there and was followed by images from the Netherlands and across the world of Dutch men showing solidarity.

Since the attack, male politicians across Netherlands were also seen holding hands.




Dutch men took to social media to post pictures where they can be seen holding hands.

Netherlands was the first country to legalize gay marriage in 2001 and Prime Minister Mark Rutte described the attack as “terrible”.

The Logical Indian strongly condemns the attack as a breach of individual rights. However, we laud Netherland’s national outpour of emotions for the support of the gay couple. As a nation of progressive individuals, the dutch have set an overwhelming example for the whole world.
