It was a very disheartening thing to wake up to the news of an 8-year-old girl Asifa being held captive, drugged, brutally mutilated and ultimately being killed. The girl, who belonged to a Nomadic tribe in the Kathua district, was found dead on Wednesday morning in the Hiranagar era of Jammu and Kashmir. The Twitterati is clearly outraged beyond comprehension as they make the hashtag #JusticeForAsifa trend.
But, obviously, we are not the only one who are deeply outraged by this brutal act, and, just like many, we too are in a state of denial that people are capable of something as horrific as this.
We have failed as a society! Being a father, I am shaken and filled with anger reading about what happened to a 8 year old kid. My heart goes out to Asifa’s family. I refuse to accept we really let THIS happen. Justice has to be served NOW. #JusticeforAsifa

Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered.
If you don’t feel her terror, you are not human.
If you don’t demand Asifa get justice, you belong to nothing.

The cruelest form of evil is harming an innocent child. What is happening to the world we live in??? These people should be given the most severe punishment there is! Where are we heading as humanity?
Shaken to my core.#JusticeforAsifa

How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.

HOW do human beings go through evil acts on another human? During an act, how do they not stop? Is there no concience? No guilt? No regret? No humanity? HOWWW do you allow yourself to go through raping and killing a child?! Cannot understand it. #JusticeforAsifa

THEY are monsters, they drugged, raped and murdered a little girl. THEY are monsters, they defended the crime in the name of religion.
