Popular Punjabi singer Mika Singh has urged quick and stern action against those who committed rape against the eight-year-old girl from Jammu and Kashmir. He says people tend to forget such instances and prefer to focus on Salman Khan’s blackbuck poaching case just because celebrities are soft targets.
“I think stern action should be taken against criminals. This is not a single instance as I think our problem is that we tend to forget these kind of incidents in four to five days which is very bad.”
I think every time we have to oppose instances like these, we only concentrate on Salman Khan’s ‘blackbuck hunting case’ and our agencies are investing their money, time and energy in that case. But we are ignoring a severe offence (the rape incident),” Mika told the media here on Saturday.
The gruesome incident involved the gang rape and murder of a young girl in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua. “I want to urge Hindus and Muslims not to fight against each other because this is a serious issue and that girl could have been a daughter from any religion. So we shouldn’t create controversy in this matter.”
“Our soft targets are celebrities and politicians and we are ignoring serious crimes which are happening in our country. So I think quick and stern action should be taken against criminals who have been a part of this shameful act,” Mika added.
