Rape is an act of violence. It should be banned.

However, actress Koena Mitra did not agree with her comment and slammed the Neerja actress for blaming the entire religion for the case. Furthermore, Koena Mitra was quite agitated at the sudden outrage in the whole country and people highlighting only one case.
When the entire entertainment industry stood in to support the eight-year-old victim from Kathua, Koena Mitra bashed Sonam for her tweet and asked her some questions. In her tweet, she said:
“Any comments @sonamkapoor? You condemned a heinous crime (I appreciate) but gave it a communal twist “Fake Hindus”. Kindly do the same for all. How can you blame an entire religion for this rape? These victims are ours too! #justicaForAll.”

Besides supporting Sonam Kapoor for taking a stand in the rape case, she was quite angry at the fact that people are giving a communal twist to this case. Koena even mentioned other rape cases which had happened earlier in the country but couldn’t get much coverage. Koena Mitra demanded justice for all and not just for the 8-year-old girl rape victim from Kathua. However, Sonam Kapoor has not made any further comments.
Do you think Koena is right? Tell us in comments.
