Kangana Ranaut says, ‘Our System Slowly Tortured Nirbhaya’s Mother For 7 Years’
In an interview, Kangana Ranaut shared her opinion on the system took 7 years to serve justice.
After 7 years after the rape and murder of the young medical student Jyoti Singh, who came to be known as ‘Nirbhaya’, the four convicts – Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma, and Akshay Kumar Singh – were hanged to death on Friday (March 20, 2020) at 5.30 am in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
Now, Kangana Ranaut who is known to speak her mind and share her views be it on socio-political topics or the subject of nepotism in Bollywood. Recently, she spoke about the court’s decision of hanging the convict.
Talking to SpotBoye in an exclusive interview, she spoke on how the system delayed to serve justice, “Our judicial system is quite old and unfair. It took seven long years for our judicial system to give verdict on a horrific rape and murder case that shook the entire nation. I remember taking part in the candle march for Nirbhaya at the time when I was shooting for Queen. There should have been quick justice for such brutal crime. Indirectly we have tortured Nirbhaya’s mother and the entire family for seven long years,” she said.
She also said on how can relate to Nirbhaya’s mom, “The judicial system has taken so long to deliver justice in this case that people have already forgotten about the case and moved on. I feel related to Nirbhaya’s mom’s name Asha Devi since my mother’s name is Asha. I still remember the time when my sister Rangoli had an acid attack and the accused had got bail people used to question us on how we could let go the accused and keep quite. Those were the times I used to feel angry on our judiciary as why the accused was granted bail and the victim suffered. Rangoli suffered ear burns and her eye was damaged.”
“I got her retina transplanted but it was only possible because I was an actress, had it been any common man, it would have still remained the same. The times we tried to move on people came questioning us as why we were letting the accused go free. Just think about Nirbhaya’s mother facing people for seven long years. People would not even let her emerge from the shock if she wanted to. We have tortured her family for seven long years and killed them indirectly, she concluded.
