Jaya Bachchan broke down in the Rajya Sabha while condemning the gangrape of a young woman in New Delhi


Jaya Bachchan
Jaya is not the only B-Town folk to show her ire and demand immediate action against the culprits. Several other stars have joined in the movement to take a firm stand. They have been expressing their opinions at events or on their micro-blogging sites.

Priyanka Chopra
“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!! ... What kind of a democracy are we living in? Is this India shining?? Is this even India? Where is the fear if the law?

Salman Khan
“There should be a death sentence for rapists. Such things have no role in our life. I feel disgusted after hearing such things. For me, this is a third grade crime. There should be a norm that if a rapist goes to jail, he should be beaten till death. Indian society needs to be dabang (bold) in their approach. I recently read a news where a girl was being molested and people standing nearby were making videos on their phones. This is not the real India.

Kareena Kapoor
In our country, we always take safety measures after any shocking incident happens. Our laws should be reassessed. Justice has to happen faster. By saying that a woman should not go out at night should not be a solution to this problem. I don’t support such statements. And being a modern woman, I like to party late. This is really a matter of shame.”

Amitabh Bachchan
The gang rape in Delhi and its details are simply unmentionable... punish the culprits, with the most severe punishment ever. But also let us introspect! What is going wrong with our society, our people. Naari ke roop mein hum pooja karte hain Durga, Kali, Lakshmi ki .. jo shraddha hum yahan pradaan karte hain, apne desh ki mahilaon pe kyun nahin karte... it is an act of a demon, a monster that deserves the harshest punishment; a punishment that should set an example for any such perpetrator in the future.”
