We failed her at every level. This is on our collective conscience,” wrote Dia Mirza on Twitter.
While actor Kangana Ranaut expressing her “immense faith,” in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Wednesday said she wants that the Hathras rapists to be executed in the same manner, in which the Priyanka Reddy’s rapists were punished. She took to Twitter to give her opinion on the case and said she wants an “emotional, instinctive and impulsive justice,” for the Hathras rapists. Priyanka Reddy was a veterinary doctor in Hyderabad who was gang-raped and murdered in November 2019.
It sounds extreme but In such cases the families of the perpetrators should also be held accountable & shamed. Only then will families teach their sons to respect women.Right now the shame & the pain is only for the victim & her family.Cases go on forever & no one cares #Hathras
