Kathua Rape Case: #JusticeForAsifa, Say Film Personalities

An eight-year-old minor from Jammu’s Kathua district was abducted, held hostage in a temple, drugged, repeatedly raped and finally murdered to scare the Bakerwal community out of the village. What followed after the brutal act was a concerted effort to obstruct justice. Bribes were paid, evidences destroyed, people were intimidated to cover the heinous crime that took place in January this year. Film personalities, Opposition parties and people in general have expressed shock and demanded justice for the eight-year-old. Expressing outrage on social media accounts might perhaps be considered an easy way to react to the crime, but at moments like this, staying silent is also not an option.
