Akshay Kumar: Rapists do not deserve any human rights of sympathy



Here's what your favourite Bollywood stars are tweeting.

Bollywood stars condemned the gang rape of the young photojournalist in Mumbai and sought strict action against the criminals. Here’s what they said:

Nargis Fakhri: I know it's my big day 2 day but I'm disgusted at the news reports of another gang rape here in Mumbai. This is becoming a sickness! Wtf!

Lara Dutta Bhupathi: Since we're becoming more&more depraved and barbaric as a society,why don't we follow thru with all barbaric customs,hang rapists in public! An activist has to die for a law to be passed! How many more women need to b raped in order for swifter and apt punishment to be meted out??

Farhan Akhtar: Dear CM, Home min state, Police Comm & sluggish judiciary... Wish u all were everyday women so you'd truly realise the fear they must feel. There has to be harsher punishment for rape & a fixed time limit within which cases must reach a verdict in court. Wake up system!!

Akshay Kumar: It seems like Déjà vu...honestly how many more such cases before we do something? These are animals disguised as men...can't think of anything else. Hang them! Rapists do not deserve any human rights of sympathy!

Manoj Bajpayee: Mumbai is shamed by the incident of gangrape last night.we all hang our head in shame that we can not give a safeworldtowomen.

Shekhar Ravjiani: My heart goes out to the victim and I hope and pray that God gives her the strength to make it through this ordeal.

Bipasha Basu: More shock and more remorse!What about more justice and justice which would scare and stop these filthy animals who live in human skin!

Alia Bhatt: Can't even say that am shocked anymore!! who says girls should be sensible and careful at night ? It has nothing to do with where or when.

Onir: Sad to see how the city one loves and has given to so much to so many ... Is becoming a place of nightmare for women.

Anupam Kher: Moral Bankruptcy is Worse than Financial Bankruptcy. And we are heading towards BOTH. #MumbaiRape. Shameful and Sad. There is NO fear of Law. Rape cases go on for years. Nobody is Hanged for Rape. Politicians are interested in Power. NOT Welfare of People.

Gul Panag: The prevention /enforcement mechanism(or the lack of it), not withstanding, our societal culture of patriarchy is perhaps more worrying. Short term: iron fist of law for swift retribution. Long term: societal change. Male child preference to be shunned. And stronger laws are not the answer. Implementation( procedural/judicial)is the issue.Time bound disposal of cases needs to be the norm. Sad validation of the fact, that NO city in India is safe for women. It is after all the same prevention/enforcement mechanism in use all over

Kunal Kemmu: Never thought that gang rape and mumbai could be mentioned in the same sentence. Feel sad and angered. Mumbai was once a safe city.

Isha Koppikar: Its only so much that the law can do,,d rest is upon us ,lets direct our anger towards the monsters who raped a 22 year old journalist.

Varun Dhawan: Just heard the news about a gangrape in Mumbai. Disgusted!!. Please publicly hang these people. Sickened with these repeated acts by cowards.

Pooja Bedi: Absolutely shocked by news of the Mumbai gang rape. Get the scum off our streets!!! Swift sentencing,severe punishments r need of the hour!

Celina Jaitly: Devastated to hear of gangrape of r dear journalist in Mumbai,SEVERE action HAS tobe taken to make RAPE punishmnt EXTREME to instill FEAR.

Sunidhi Chauhan: It's such a shame!!! Mumbai?? Can't imagine this! Kya ab bhi sirf is baare mein baatein hi karke reh jayenge hum log? No! India is not safe anymore! I thought wrong!

Aditi Rao Hydari: this is a country of demons who rape and kill every second day. crying with shame,fear,anger,disgust- wake up shameless system creators.

Madhur Bhandarkar: Stunned and saddened to hear about the horrific gangrape in our city. This is NOT the Mumbai we know it to be. A moment of absolute shame.

Yaami Gautam: Disgusted to hear about growing number of rape cases.How do they get this audacity despite so many protests ?Capital punishment is the word.

Pooja Bhatt: Mortified to hear about the gang rape in Mumbai yesterday which occurred in broad daylight. This is not the city I grew up in. Ashamed!
