Popular TV actress Divyanka Tripathi (aka Ishita of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein ) was extremely disturbed after reading about a minor’s rape in Chandigarh on Independence Day. The 12-year-old was returning home after attending her school’s celebrations for 15th August, where she was allegedly assaulted and raped inside the Child Traffic park.
Divyanka, who is in extreme fear after learning about the incident said that she is now scared of having a girl child.
The Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor ranted in a series of tweets which she addressed to PM Narendra Modi, saying she can teach her daughter all the good values and still cannot guarantee her safety from the rapists which prevail on the streets across the country.
She also wrote, ‘’Why don’t we give gruesome punishments for gruesome crimes? Yet another rape! What independence are we talking about? Women must stop voting for any party as they are so unimportant for this nation! It’s a ‘No Woman’s Land’ or a #RapistsParadise we live in!”
For what must we vote? 70 years of independence hasn't set us free! All parties must WAKE UP NOW! Every woman deserves security! https://t.co/ozvAboOsob
