Respect women, says Javed Akhtar

Mumbai: The gang-rape of a 23-year-old in the capital has shocked the entire nation. Writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar feels such incidents can be avoided only when society starts respecting women.

"Strong laws, gender sensitive police, fast track courts are not enough. Society should learn to respect women. Stop domestic violence," Akhtar tweeted.
