Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan spoke strongly against the Delhi gang rape of a 23 year old girl. They both took to micro blogging site Twitter to show their anger.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote on Twitter, "Wanted to say so much of the day .. but so disturbed by the gang rape case in Delhi .. atrocious and unforgivable !! On this public platform I dare not even attempt to mention the details of the rape case .. even an animal would not behave so .. !!"
Amitabh Bachchan also posted on Facebook, "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 .. !!!"
Shahrukh Khan tweeted, "We cannot blame a ghastly act as the collective deterioration of the world we live in. It is not an external condition.İTS US becos we make that collective & if we dont punish the rapists then rightfully we will be punished..soon....very soon...when this inhuman crime hits our homes and families."
Yesterday Amitabh's wife and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan broke down in the Rajya Sabha while talking about this heinous crime. She has urged the government to amend Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code to make rape a crime at par with attempt to murder.
