Many popular personalities of Tamil cinema have expressed anguish over the Pollachi sexual assault case. They have demanded strict punishment to the gang which was involved in videographing the harassment acts.
Khushbu said, “#pollachirapists should be thrown to mad dogs..not even a single person responsible for such ghastly act should be given bail..blood boils..not even an ounce of sympathy should be shown to these beasts..I stand with the people who demand extremely severe punishment for them..”
Siddharth wrote: “Shocked by the #PollachiSexualAbuse case. Hope there is systemic support given so that survivors can come forward and strengthen the case against the criminals who did this. Preying on girls using social media is a growing menace and we must safeguard against it.”
Jayam Ravi posted, “My stand always remains the same.. whether through my movies or my personal opinion, punishment of the highest order for any predators who violate a woman’s right and a child’s innocence. #PollachiSexualAbuse #PunishTheRapists.”
According to GV Prakash, “I strongly condemn these monsters … மிருகங்களினும் கேவலமான இந்த 4 பேரும் பெண்களை சித்ரவதை செய்து பாலியல் கொடுமைப்படுத்தியதுவீடியோ பார்த்து நெஞ்சம் பதைபதைக்கிறது… இவர்களை பொது வெளியில் நடமாடவிடுவது சமூகத்திற்கு பேராபத்து.. (These four guys are worser than animals. It’s heartbreaking to see the video of them torturing the girls. Allowing these monsters to walk freely is dangerous).”
Chinmayi wrote: “After reading through the blood curdling Pollachi rape – It is not in the least surprising why many didn’t take a stand.“Women empowerment” Women’s Safety are all good for speeches.But who is walking the talk please? Let me know 🙂 The Pollachi Gang Rape Group is politically connected. They have been making ‘friends’ with women or posing as some ‘travel group’ to gang rape girls. They have also shot videos of it.One of the victim’s brother was beaten up by the same rapist circle.#PollachiGangRape. Do Politicians, society really care for the women? Sexual harassment or rape, it takes aeons before there is any justice and repeat victimisation. Speak UP for the women. It. is. high. time. If you want National Media to pick it up everyone needs to tweet about it. 2 of the news reports in the Pollachi Rape case where perhaps 200 women have been raped so far.No one has come forward to file a case despite video evidence. Again because society. “What will happen to the future of the girls?!”
Sasikumar stated: “சமூக வலைத்தளங்களைப் பயன்படுத்தி பெண்களை கொடூரமாக நாசம் செய்திருப்பது குலைநடுங்க வைக்கிறது. உடனடியாக இந்தக் கொடூரர்களை தண்டிக்க வேண்டும். பாதிக்கப்பட்ட பெண்களின் எதிர்காலம் காப்பாற்றப்பட வேண்டும்.#ArrestPollachiRapists.”*
