Organised gang rape and murder of an eight year old in Jammu and Kashmir state has SHOCKED the nation to the core. There is a rightful outrage against this inhuman, heinous act from all sections of the society and Bollywood is not far in this too. Right from Karan Johar to Sonam Kapoor have CONDEMNED this act and have asked for instant justice. Down south, Kamal Hassan too gave a very stern reaction to this shameful incident.
For the uninitiated, an eight year old girl from the Kathua was abducted in a political ploy to overthrow the tribal Bakheral community from the particular area of Jammu and Kashmir and gang raped in a temple before killing her. With highly placed police officers apparently involved in this unspeakable crime, law and order went for a toss as no proper charge sheet was filed in this case. This led to outrage of masses and Bollywood celebrities too voiced their strong dissent to this. Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Rajkummar Rao, Javed Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Nandita Das, Abhishek Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana and Neha Dhupia took to Twitter to strongly condemn this act. Hope the government takes cognizance of the heinous crime committed and hope we give justice to the martyr Asifa.
Following are the tweets posted by Bollywood celebs.
How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.

Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered.
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.
We have a choice either raise your voice or be a silent spectator.

Who was Asifa ? She was an eight years old daughter of Bakerwals. Who are Bakerwals ? A nomad tribe who when spotted the Kargil intruders promptly informed the army .Who are the people who are trying to protect the rapists of this little girl . ? Now it is your turn to answer.
