Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli, Malaika Arora Condemn Bengaluru Molestation

The day after we rang in 2017, we got the horrific news that a young woman was molested by a group of men in Bengaluru. Outrage followed and a lot of our Bollywood celebrities too spoke out against the incident. Four people have been arrested in the case since but the conversation about the incident has continued.

Various Bollywood celebrities started condemning the "shameful" incident.

Anushka Sharma tweeted a long message urging people to teach their sons to behave rather than asking women to watch themselves.

Virat Kohli today took to social media and condemned the incident.

“Guys what happened in Bangalore is really disturbing. To see something like that happen to those girls and for people to watch it and not do anything about it, I think it’s a cowardly act. Those people don’t have any right to call themselves men. I have only one question, If something like that happened god for bid to someone in your family, would you stand and watch or would you help. That’s my only question! And I think these things are allowed to happen and people stand there and they watch these things happen and they are fine with it because they think it’s absolutely fine for something like that to happen to a girl just because she is wearing short clothes. It’s her life, it’s her decision and it’s her choice. For men to accept that it’s an opportunity for us to do something like this and get away with it and people empowered try to defend it, it’s absolutely horrible. I think as a society these things are in certain people’s heads acceptable to a certain degree, it’s disturbing and shocking. And I am ashamed to be a a part of this society. I think we need to change our thinking, we need to treat men and women in the same way, be respectful and treat women with some compassion. As I said put yourself in the situation and think what if we were their family members of those girls, how would we feel about it. JAI HIND! (sic)” Kohli said in his video.
