"Safety of women is a prerequisite of a civilised society. We do not want to be deified as goddesses we want equality we demand respect. It is time to reflect, to analyse, to soul search how each segment has been culpable and led to a mindset that makes man treat woman like property (sic)."

Our only redemption is if we do not forget," said filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.Mahesh Bhatt: "Shut all temples where you pretend to worship the female form. Cry India!
