Actress Poonam Kaur has been extremely anguished about the unfortunate rape and killing of the Hyderabad-based vet doctor Priyanka Reddy. The brutal incident has shaken the conscience of our society. Poonam, who has worked for peaceful relations between India and Pakistan in recent months, has said that she is done with the spate of sexual crimes happening in the country.
In an emotional message, Poonam said, “We will be trending and every news channel will pick up this news, keeping it alive just for a few days. When Priyanka’s mother approached the police, the latter had the audacity to tell her to check if their daughter had eloped with someone. Are you not ashamed, you a bloody police officer?”
“I want to kill these animals and go to jail. I want to kill them myself and serve a jail sentence. What is the solution to this rape terror happening in the country?” she asks. Poonam makes a fervent appeal against the communalization of rapes. “Don’t politicize incidents like this and say it happened because of Mohammed Pasha. It’s not about religion,” she says.
