    Satyameva Jayate: We Need To Come Down Hard On People Who Misbehave With Women: John Abraham


    John Abraham is back in his action avatar with his upcoming film Satyameva Jayate. In this Independence Day release, he plays a vigilante delivering justice to people ignored by the system. The actor, who is busy with the promotions of his film, recently told a leading daily that we should have strict laws for criminals and rapists, "I think we need to come down hard on people who misbehave with women, animals and other living beings. Let me ask you a question, 'Why are you afraid of the ISIS?' You're afraid because they send videos of beheadings. When you think of going into their area, you are scared.''

    He further added,  ''As a government, if we don't instill fear in perpetrators - if we don't give them capital punishment or life imprisonment - they won't be deterred. In Middle Eastern countries, there is no drug trafficking because anyone who is caught is given death penalty. So, when it comes to crime against women and other people in our society, you hope for people like Veer (my character in the film) who are needed to fight that. Whatever it is, the problem is the system."

    Talking about his movie, the actor had told in an interview, ''I feel sometimes people should take matters into their own hands. But this movie isn't propagating that. It doesn't make any tall claims. It's a simple commercial entertainer. When people don't get the justice they feel they deserve, how do you suggest they fight for their rights? While there are dishonest people in the system, I believe there are honest people, too.''

    ''Like Manoj Bajpayee's character, Shivansh, in this film is an upright police officer. When I was stuck during Parmanu, I went to the system. Justice Kathawalla, who heard my case in court, did justice, fair and square. With Satyameva Jayate, we are reaching out to the dishonest people. I'm not a crusader against the corruption in the system. The trailer clearly says that anyone who is dishonest and harms any woman will face my wrath,''John concluded.
