New Delhi [India], Apr 15 : With the outrage over the horrifying gangrape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua growing louder across the nation, the Bollywood fraternity too could not hold in the rage anymore.
The recent investigation into the January incident has unfolded the gory details of the crime that was allegedly committed inside a temple where the girl was sedated, raped a multiple times, and later murdered and thrown in the woods.
Ashamed and enraged, Bollywood now demands #JusticeForOurChild. Celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Vishal Dadlani, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadha and many others have posted pictures on their social media holding placards with a message demanding justice for the victim. People have followed in their footsteps, which has given way to a new trend that is purely and wholly for a social cause.
The latest to join the list is Kareena Kapoor, who took to Instagram and posted a photo with the placard that read, “I am Hindustan. I am Ashamed. #JusticeForOurChild 8 years old. Gangraped. Murdered in ‘Devi’-sthaan temple. #Kathua”
A couple of days ago, Sonam Kapoor posted a similar picture on Twitter, with the same caption.
In recent developments on the case, two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, Chandra Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh, resigned following accusations of attending a rally in support of the miscreants responsible for the crime.
