There will be more #nirbhaya and #Asifa if there is no strong law made now.#DeathPenalty

. we have lost all rights to call ourselves Human after this inhuman act. If we were Animals we would still have a known code of conduct. Shame on each one of us. Hang our heads in shame.

These people do not deserve to be called as ‘human beings’. They are simply beasts. Every conscious citizen of kashmir and entire world should join hands and fight till rapists and killers of this girl are brought to justice. #JusticeforAsifa
