Please Understand the Matter!
Shocked at this mindless tweet from you, @NSaina. No doubt it will get you applause, but the harm done by you who have such reach and are such a +ve role model for women is immeasurable. I request, urge, even beg you to have the humility to study an issue before commenting on it. https://t.co/ZL9voNZp4K

Cant Imagine the Horror!
Can’t even imagine the horror the victim felt and then when these rapists are shot down however the incident happened,I’m happy. I don’t need applause.Your opinion is not changing the mindsets of rapists or the law. If the victim had a gun she would shoot them too. https://t.co/zNBSWNTIXn

Hyderabad police encountered the criminals who gang-raped and killed an innocent girl earlier this week. Police did not arrest them and rather shot them dead. The matter has become a national issue currently. While some people and politicians are supporting Hyderabad police’s actions on the basis of justice, some others are angry over the alleged autocratic way police has taken action against the culprits. According to Indian law, a rapist can be sent to seven years in prison or can also face the death penalty over the heinous crime of rape.
