Mahesh Babu has reacted to the brutal rape and murder of 27-year-old veterinarian on the outskirts of Hyderabad last week.
In a tweet, he said, “Day after day, month after month, year after year… NOTHING is changing. We are failing, as a society! Sending my personal appeal to the state & central governments. @KTRTRS @PMOIndia we need stricter laws, capital punishment for heinous crimes like these…”
In another tweet, Mahesh stated: “My heartfelt condolences to the families of the girls. Your pain is irreversible! Let’s come together to give justice to all the women and young girls of our country… Let’s make India safe!!#Justicefor(victim’s name)#StopRapes #SaveHer.”
Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga of ‘Arjun Reddy’ fame said, “FEAR is the only factor which can change things radically in a society and FEAR should be the new rule. Brutal sentence will set an example. Now every girl in the country needs a firm guarantee.I request @warangalpolice to come into action.#RIPPriyankaReddy.”
His tweet generated criticism too, with one of the users commenting: “It could have been a Kabir Singh who raped Priyanka Reddy, don’t you think?”
In a post, Keerthy Suresh said, “Devastated and Heartbroken to know that Dr. Priyanka Reddy was raped and burnt alive !Things are getting fearsome day by day. I am just speechless at this moment not knowing who is to be blamed specially in a city like Hyderabad which I presumed to be a super safe city . When will our country ever become safe for a woman to walk around at any time of the day. All the brutal psychopaths should be hunt down and punished asap! Heartfelt condolences to her family. May god give them the strength and power to overcome the loss and help find the culprits. I believe in Karma, it works 24 *7.”
