Last week, eight men in a Haryana village were arrested for allegedly raping a seven-year-old pregnant goat which died a day after the assault.

Yes, it was a bizarre case that shook and angered the entire nation. When the incident came to light, hashtag #JusticeForGoat began trending on Twitter.



Disgusted at the heinous crime, Bollywood actor John Abraham feels the only way to manage such depravity is by awarding death penalty. He wants rapists of the goat to be hanged.



Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Abraham said, “I am appalled. Being an Indian, I say women and animals are not safe in our country. Capital punishment is the only way forward. Nothing else will work with the sick men in our country. For me my religion is being good to all living beings. These guys should be given capital punishment - simple.”

Actor Farhan Akhtar too used strong words to condemn the shameful act. He tweeted: “Women and children living in fear of the Indian man’s power politics and sexual perversion was not enough.. now goats and dogs will too. Something has gone seriously wrong in our evolution and our education. Where’s the light at the end of this tunnel? (sic)”



PETA India took to Twitter to say, “We worked with the police in filing FIR against the accused. They’re expected to be arrested soon! Please join us in urging the government for stricter penalties, for those who abuse animals.”
