Delhi gang-rape case has shaken up the entire nation. And in time such as these our B-towners aren’t the ones to keep mum. And precisely that’s the reason why they came forward with strong comments against the wrong-doers and with suggestion about what could be done next.

Sridevi (in an interview) – We should ensure that such incidents don’t not happen again and the accused should be punished.

(via Tweet) My heart goes out to the girl & her family in Delhi. Hope justice is served to the guilty of this heinous crime with a severe punishment.

Esha Gupta (in an interview) – Rape is the worst of all crimes that a man can commit. Even murder… the person is dead. But rape – you ruin another person’s life. Leave her living, but she dies inside. In my opinion, this is worse than murder. Capital punishment is too easy – rapists and molesters should be stoned in public, they must be given a slow, painful death.

Priyanka Chopra (via Facebook) – It’s so 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 bloody RAPED HER!! And there is no excuse or explanation for that!! Small men who feel powerful by taking on a young girl minding her own business?! Living her beautiful life?! Why Kind of a democracy r we living in? Where a girl can’t be all she is wants to be just out of fear if Man!! Is this India Shining?? Is this even India? Whr is the fear if the law? Of the Govt? It’s shameful!

Juhi Chawla (via Twitter) – Read the newspapers this morning & I wish I hadn’t. Read the heart rending, shocking & saddening news about the gang-rape on a Delhi bus! My heart goes out to the little girl & her family. I hope those men are found & publicly punished for this heinous act. Sometimes I wish our laws were as simple & strict as tooth for tooth & an eye for an eye. Crimes like this wouldn’t happen!

Shabana Azmi (via Twitter) – Certainty of punishment acts as deterrent Death penalty not d answer. Conviction rate in rape cases is non existent.Guarantee safety of women.

Ayesh Takia Azmi (in an interview) – Traumatic, watching news of traumatic news of brutal gang rape in delhi!!! This is truly becoming an epidemic in this country, SHAMEFUL!

Lisa Ray (in an interview) – Public outrage and debate is healthy. Wise punishment is called for. Wisdom comes from introspection and turning the gaze in.

Gul Panag (via Twitter) – Heartening to see women take to the streets. Needed, lest we forget. Of course our elected representatives remain cocooned:p.

Sophie Choudry (via Twitter) – SHAME! Takes incidents like Delhi gang-rape 4 ppl/MPs to show outrage! What about girls who r raped by family members?!Who’s protectin them?

Kareena Kapoor (in an interview) – It really should not have happened. In our country, we always take safety measures after any shocking incident happens. I definitely would like to say that getting justice in the country is really time taking. Our laws should be reassessed. Justice has to happen faster.

Huma Qureshi (via Twitter) – Rape is saying-I can violate u whenever I want. Killing rapists wnt solve nything. Respect women on an everyday basis. Stop nurturing men 2 think they r masters. Its not ok to b rude,uncouth even in seemingly small ways.In dat attitude is d seed of d problem. Or women to think that they r either 2 be put indoors, away from d male gaze nor goddesses to b put on a pedestal. Eveteasing,sex selection,domestic violence,dowry,honor killings…If u have seen ny injustice on women n been silent. YOU guilty as rapists.
