At a time when the entire nation demands severe punishment for the accused in the 25-year-old woman veterinarian gangrape and murder case, Bollywood stars also have opened up voicing their protest against the brutal crime.

Demanding capital punishment for the rapists, Rishi Kapoor tweeted, “I support Capital punishment for rapists! This has to stop!”

The veteran actor also shared a post which reads, “Humans are alive but what about humanity!! One more incident, one more innocent, what was her fault? Constitution gave everyone same and equal right so why such discrimination? It shook everyone.

“Just one question, till when we have to tolerate this? Who is responsible for such shameful incident? Is it because of poor law or is it because of easy access to internet which lead to this cruel act? So many things are to be answerable but as of now the only thing we want is justice… It’s not gonna stop in short time, let’s come together and make it a movement..!! A more strict law should be enforced and that person must feel the fear of death even before thinking about doing something. There can only be one punishment for such act – “Death penalty” this is the voice of whole India, this is what everyone want. Nation is crying, we lost our one more child.. Wake up people, although lifestyle is improving but humanity is dying slowly.. It’s high time now..!!”

Reacting to Rishi Kapoor’s tweet, actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar tweeted: “The 4 convicted rapists/killers of Jyoti Singh were given capital punishment. It has now been 7 years. They are still alive. That’s how grindingly slow the wheels of justice on a (fast-tracked!!) case that shook this country to its core have turned. It’s pathetic. @chintskap”.

In a separate tweet, he wrote: “The irony that these monsters who did not show any mercy to their victim are allowed to file mercy petitions even after the Supreme Court upholds their sentencing is just baffling!”

He added: “Yes justice should be expedited and I think the only people who should have the right to forgive someone from capital punishment (if sentenced to it) are members of the victims family. There’s no way you, I or the President could know what their pain feels like.”

Meanwhile, the hashtag demanding justice for the victim is trending on Twitter as the entire nation stands agitated and seeks justice.

Richa Chadha has also tweeted on the same. Reacting to a journalist’s tweet, the actress wrote: “Could’ve saved a life!” adding the hashtag.

Pankaj Tripathi: Those of us who have power and potential must look out for others

Pankaj-Tripathi

Actress Pankaj Tripathi feels those who have power and potential must take up the duty of looking out for others more than ever today. He addressed the subject through an audio clip on social media.

“It’s time for us to be selfless and help anyone who looks like they’re in need of it. Trust me, doing this will feel good. Care is always welcome, especially in times of crisis. A book I read recently describes how even in the presence of a powerful king in the jungle — which is the lion — all the inhabitants of the forest have to look out for themselves,” said Pankaj.

“In human society, it’s not the same. Those of us who have power and potential must take up the duty of looking out for others who need us more than ever today,” he added.

Meanwhile, as life slowly trickles back to normalcy, Pankaj looks forward to his upcoming films. His next release is probably the much-hyped “83”, which is ready for release. The film narrates the story of India’s first cricket World Cup victory in 1983. Tripathi plays the team’s manager Man Singh in the film that stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, captain of the Indian team.

He will also be seen alongside Akshay Kumar in the film “Bachchan Pandey” which is currently on the floors in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. The Farhad Samji directorial film also stars Arshad Warsi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Kriti Sanon and Prateik Babbar.

Among his other projects is “Mimi” starring Kriti Sanon, a film about surrogacy.
