The brutal rape of Asifa, an eight-year-old Jammu & Kashmir girl, has shocked the nation's conscience. More and more celebs are speaking up about the issue. Here are some of the actresses who have expressed their disgust.
Tamannaah tweets, "An 8-year-old raped in J&K. A 16-year-old raped and her protesting father beaten to death so as to protect the rapist. Where is this country headed? How many Nirbhayas need to be sacrificed before reforms are brought into existence. A country that can't keep its women safe is a country with a rather regressive mentality that needs therapy."
Rakul Preet Singh tweets, "This is inhuman, sick and demands immediate action. I wonder if any punishment is hard enough for monsters like this !!we need to put a stop to it now!!"
Pooja Hegde opines, "When are we gonna have stricter and faster action taken against crimes like this?! To be able to do this to a child or ANY WOMAN AT ALL! Monsters."
Raashi Khanna writes, "Shocked at the politicising of a heinous act of rape and murder! Time to mourn at the loss of humanity. Strict action needs to be taken to send shivers down their spine!"
