Bollywood celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sunny Leone, Abhishek Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, and several others have condemned the heinous murder of a two-and-a-half-year-old girl in Aligarh. And while celebrities are demanding justice, Sonam Kapoor and Ashoke Pandit have had a sort of war of words on Twitter. Posting about the case, Sonam had shared, “What has happened to baby twinkle is. Heartbreaking and horrific. I pray for her and her family. I also urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda. This is a little girls death, not a reason to spread your hate.”
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit picked up Sonam’s post and questioned her reaction to the tragedy. He wrote, “ On U questioned d values of india by tweeting : “I am Hindustan. I am ashamed. 8 years old gang raped & murdered in 'Devi'-sthaan Temple.” And nw on you tweet saying “I urge Ppl to not make ds into a selfish agenda.” Why this disparity ?." In another post he added, "I hv nt qstnd ur beliefs bt want to knw why dr’s a diffrnce in Ur reaction btwn #Asifa & #Twinkle.Why ds delayed reaction ?Why no playcards? Why nt tkng names of d accused ?Don’t U think al crimes shld b condemned wth same intensity nd similar language. #JusticeForTwinkleSharma.”
To which Sonam calmly replied, “Because I practice Hinduism and I believe in karma. I’m sure you have better things to do then troll me. Hope you find peace and love. Thank you for your opinions, this made my day. Ignorance is truly bliss.”
Earlier, Akshay Kumar had posted, “Horrified, upset and angry to know about baby. This is definitely not the kind of world we want for our children. We need immediate and strictest punishment for such a heinous crime." Condemning the act, Twinkle Khanna demanded justice and wrote, "It is heartbreaking to hear about the horrific murder of the two and a half-year-old little girl In Aligarh. I would request @smritiirani to ensure that swift action is taken against the perpetrators of this heinous crime." Ayushmann Khurrana had posted, "This is inhuman and barbaric.. My prayers for her family. Justice must be served!"
According to reports, the minor girl was abducted and murdered by her neighbours over a loan dispute. The accused have been reportedly arrested.
