People are busy debating about Supreme Court’s verdict on Nirbhaya rape case. While the majority of the people lauded the court for giving this bold decision, there are some who are not yet happy; they feel that the court took 5 years to give justice.
Many politicians and journalists commented on this verdict; even Priyanka Chopra joined this league and made a hard-hitting post. The actress never fails to give her opinion on ongoing issues and so, she couldn’t resist writing about Nirbhaya case too.
She tweeted a picture in which she had penned down her feelings; according to Priyanka, the court has done a wonderful job by giving justice. She feels that such decisions will curb other crimes against women too.
Here’s her tweet..

The post read,
“Yes, it has taken five long years, but today justice finally prevailed. The flame of this verdict should singe not just the dastardly four (of the other two, one is dead and once accused is a juvenile) but such perpetrators in India as well.
“The brutal, barbaric and demoniacal conduct of the convicts shook the conscience if humanity and they don’t deserve leniency,” said the Supreme Court while reading out the death sentence to the four accused in the Nirbhaya rape-cum-murder case. I’m so Proud of the justice system for hearing her voice.. in her dying declaration she appealed that her perpetrators not be spared.
Justice – that was what the entire country demanded five years ago and never let the nation forget. Each voice that joined the battle was strident and clear – the six must be punished. Finally, they will pay. The brutality of such crimes is something I refuse to accept!!
That, we, as a modern 21st century allows such heinous things to happen to our women never ceases to trouble me. Unfortunately, the past can never be undone. So, we move on and make a promise to ourselves. That when an entire country is unified in wanting something, the action is taken. That awakening, this unified voice to stop such brutal and demoniacal crimes, as our Supreme Court said, is what we must never let go onto mute mode.
You will never be forgotten Nirbhaya.”
