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)”
