Raveena Tandon urges Maneka Gandhi to bring in change in laws for rapists
Raveena tags the minister and seeks to have fast track courts and amendments in law for sexual crime.
Maneka Gandhi is Indian Union Cabinet Minister for Women & Child Development in the Government of PM Narendra Modi. The minister had apparently blamed Bollywood movies for rise in crime against women recently. Raveena Tandon’s movie Maatr, which deals with rape and justice for victim tagged Maneka in her post which stated,”To some of those who found” #Maatr” queasy. That was the intention, to disturb. But below is Harsh reality. Time to Act.@Manekagandhibjp” (sic) Raveena also posted a picture of report where an elderly woman was raped by a watchman of her building in Mumbai.
Maneka replied to Raveena and said, “Yes, @TandonRaveena ji. I am also as appalled by such incidents. We are working to change the mindset through a number of initiatives.” (Sic)
To this Raveena wrote, “Yes ma, law amendments steps need to b taken aggressively. Fast track courts, nonbailable offences, eg set in conviction if proved guilty.”(Sic)
