Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have taken to Twitter and Facebook to voice their ire with the Delhi gang-rape case in a series of tweets.

The incident spoken of is about the young woman who was gang-raped in a bus in South Delhi on Sunday night while returning from Munirka to Dwarka.

SRK posted 3 back-to-back tweets at 3 am on the 19th of December from his @iamsrk twitter handle after a late night’s work:

“1. We cannot blame a ghastly act as the collective deterioration of the world we live in. It is not an external condition. It’s US!...” (1/3)

“2. It’s US because we make that collective & if we don’t punish the rapists then rightfully we will be punished…soon…” (2/3)

“3. …very soon...when this inhuman crime reaches our homes and families...” (3/3)

Amitabh Bachchan, meanwhile, posted 7 tweets last night a little past midnight and sounded palpably shaken by the incident. He wrote:

“Wanted to say so much of the day...but so disturbed by the gang rape case in Delhi…atrocious and unforgivable!!” (1/7)

“When you speak on an issue they say, you only speak do not do anything...when you do not speak on issue they say you never speak!” (2/7)

“The fear of system, of order, of conduct guided by justice, is fast disappearing. Is this the freedom that our elders fought for!!” (3/7)

“Injustice of rape shall invite many discussions. Advocate harshness of punishment, human rights move in. Follow loopholes” (4/7)

“Durga, Kali, Lakshmi are goddesses...we pay homage to them, respect them. Women need to be respected, and given pride of place!!” (5/7)

“On this public platform I dare not even attempt to mention the details of the rape case...even an animal would not behave so!!” (6/7)

“Enough said! Enough! I cannot express anymore!!” (7/7)

They are the latest Bollywood stars to lash out against the rapists and demand a strong punishment for those involved. Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor have also vented their angst on the issue.
