Irked by the molestation case in Bangalore on New Year Eve, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar posted a video message on twitter calling the incident "truly shameful”.
The actor posted a video on Twitter, which he captioned as, “The Bangalore incident makes me feel we are evolving backwards, from humans to animals, rather beasts because even animals are better! Truly shameful.”
Akshay said he found it disgusting and questioned where te society is heading. He said, "if society can't give respect to its women then we have no right to be called as human."
“I am ashamed to be a human being today. I was returning from my New Year’s vacation in Cape Town and when I was coming out from airport holding my four-year-old daughter in my arms, I saw this video of molestation incident in Banglore. I don’t know how did you all feel about it, but my blood started boiling.
“I am a father of a daughter but even if I was not one, I feel if a society cannot respect its women, it doesn’t deserve to be called a humane society. What’s most disgusting is that people have the guts to justify such shameful acts by criticising women for their choice of clothes,” Akshay said.
Several women were allegedly molested despite huge police presence at a large gathering in Bangalore during New Year’s Eve.
