Kangana Ranaut doesn’t minces words when it comes to horrific crimes like rape, acid attack. The Panga  actress launched a scathing attack on veteran lawyer Indira Jaising who had courted controversy by making a plea to late Nirbhaya’s mother to forgive the rapists facing death row.
Ranaut was out to promote her film Panga , where one scribe sought her reaction to Indira Jaising’s plea to Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi.
“Keep that woman in the jail with the four [convicted] rapists. She [Jaising] needs it. Such kind of women exist who feel empathetic [towards rapists]. Aisi hi aurat ke kok se nilkate hain aise vaishi darindey. Unhi ki kok waisi hoti hain joh aisa sochte hai (Such monsters take birth through wombs of such women, who empathise with them) , ” said Ranaut.
Earlier, the actress was scathing in her attack of minor rapists, in fact she refused to call such culprits as minors. “A person who can reproduce, rape is not a minor. Such culprits should be hanged in public,” said Ranaut.
The Delhi gang rape took place in 2012 when six men brutally raped and assaulted the victim in a bus. The 23-year-old victim succumbed to her grave wounds on 29 December, 2012. One of the convicts Ram Singh allegedly convicted suicide in jail, while Mohammad Afroz, who was a minor then, is a free man today. Four other convicts are facing death row and will be hanged on 1 February, 2020.
Produced by Fox Star Studios, Panga  is set to be released on 24 January.
