Horrifying details of the rape and murder of a child in Kathua and rape charges by a 17-year-old girl in Unnao against a BJP MLA have triggered protests on social media as well. From celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Riteish Deshmukh, Richa Chadha, Konkona Sensharma and to political commentators, all joined hands and cried for justice in the two cases.
Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered.— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) April 12, 2018
If you don’t feel her terror, you are not human.
If you don’t demand Asifa get justice, you belong to nothing.
A 8 year old is drugged, raped & murdered and another one is fighting for justice for herself and the death of her father in custody.— Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) April 12, 2018
We have a choice either raise your voice or be a silent spectator.

When you say you are Hindu and a nationalist are you trying to say that you are an intolerant hate-monger and rapist? If the answer is no then condemn those who have raped #Asifa. Show your nationalism by protesting against those who use religion as a pretext to justify crime.— Hansal Mehta (@mehtahansal) April 12, 2018
