Even an animal won't behave so: Big B on Delhi rape
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has vented his anger over the gang-rape of a Delhi student in a moving bus.
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has vented his anger over the gang-rape of a Delhi student in a moving bus, saying that even an animal wouldn't have behaved in this manner. The 70-year-old actor said on Twitter that he had a lot
to express about the Sunday night incident but he was too disturbed by the atrocity of it.
"Wanted to say so much of the day.. but so disturbed by the gang rape case in Delhi.. atrocious and unforgivable!!...The fear of system, of order, of conduct guided by justice, is fast disappearing. Is this the freedom that our elders fought for!"
"On this public platform I dare not even attempt to mention the details of the rape case... even an animal would not behave so," he posted on the micro blogging site.
"Durga, Kali, Lakshmi are goddesses... we pay homage to them, respect them. Women need to be respected, and give pride of place," he added.
The 23-year-old paramedical student was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus by four men who also attacked her male friend and threw both of them out of the vehicle.
Actress Priyanka Chopra also tweeted about the incident, saying that it's scary that an independent woman in her own country cannot take a bus without the fear of being attacked.
"This is not just a crime against women.. It's a crime against society.. With so much being said about how women need to dress appropriately or behave appropriately.. I find this whole dialogue absurd.."
"A woman is not raped because She's out at night or wearing a short dress or drinking.. She's raped cause SOMEONE RAPED HER!! And there is no excuse or explanation for that," she tweeted.
