Kathau rape-murder case and Unnao rape case have become the hot topic of discussion in India. In the first case, the 8-year-old victim was brutally raped and then murdered in Kashmir on January 17. While in the Unnao rape case, a four-time lawmaker and his siblings allegedly gang-raped a girl and are also the accused in her father’s custodial death.
Both these cases have created quite a stir among the media and the citizens have stepped ahead to protest and as for justice to both the victims.
And now, Bollywood stars too have started pouring their views and expressed their disappointment. They are also protesting on the social media and asking for the justice.
Have a look at the tweets and the posts on the social media here:
It’s moments like this when a clear choice must be made.
We can come together as a people to protect the lives and rights of our women & children
We can allow people to put personal agendas above law & humanity
What kind of nation do We want to be? #Justice #Kathua #Unnao

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.
We have a choice either raise your voice or be a silent spectator.

The #Kathua & #Unnao Rapes hold up a mirror to the worst in us- religious hatred & class bias (in Media too). They marched for rapists in #Jammu but we, the People, did not march for the women. Nothing changed after #Nirbhaya-my @washingtonpost column https://t.co/Ca2x5kcVtg

Rape is an act of violence. It should be banned.

Not just the celebs but even the netizens have started protesting and asking for justice.
We hope the law listens to these people and an immediate action is taken against the accused. This is just the start but if we unite and fight till the end, we will be able to give justice to these two poor girls who experienced hell in such a small age.
