Varun Dhawan is the latest Bollywood celebrity to express outrage over the alleged rape and brutal murder of a young veterinarian on the outskirts of Hyderabad on 28 November. The Bollywood actor took to social media to express his disgust over the incident and raised his voice demanding justice for the victim’s family.
Using the hashtag seeking justice for the victim, Varun tweeted: “We as Indians discuss and are passionate about so many things. The entire country needs to come together and stop rapes from happening. Why is it that girls can be harmed so easily. Why aren’t these evil bastards scared of the law?”
“Right now the only focus has to be on making sure this girl and her family gets justice,” he added in a separate tweet.
Earlier, Salman Khan had also referred to the rapists as ‘worst kind of shaitans.’ “These are the worst kind of ‘shaitans’ (devils) disguised in the human form! The pain, torture and death of innocent women like Nirbhaya should now get us together and put an end to such ‘shaitans’ who live among us, before any other innocent woman... and their family go through this extreme agony and loss as this has to be stopped. Let betii bachao not be just a campaign. This is the time to let these demons know that we all stand together. May her soul rest in peace,” he tweeted.
Demanding quick investigation into the case, fashion photographer and film producer Atul Kasbekar also took to social media to remind everyone that the culprits of the 2012 Delhi gangrape case have not yet been hung.
When the criminal justice system fails to be an effective deterrent, the run of heinous crime is unabated— atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) December 1, 2019
In case of rape/murder:
- we must have quick investigation n arrests
- fast track courts
- quick dispensation of the sentence
PS: The #Nirbhaya killers haven’t hung as yet
On Sunday afternoon, the hashtag #NoMercyToRapists also started trending on Twitter with people demanding severe and immediate action against the four accused in the alleged gang-rape and murder incident.
