Ms Deepika Singh Rajawat,
After details of the brutal gangrape in Kathua became public, we cannot imagine how difficult it must be for you to do your job to ensure the accused get convicted! We’ve been reading articles, listening to debates on primetime TV, and following news on social media -- this eight-year-old Bakkarwal girl has grabbed the nation’s attention. Nothing we do can ever get her back, but what we can do is hope for speedy justice. And this is why your job is of utmost importance right now.
Ms Rajawat, in this period of distress, when you feel intimidated by one hundred people, remember that lakhs of Indians are with you.
You are doing the right thing, and your passion to ensure justice is given to the family in Kathua against all odds is a beacon of hope for the rest of us. We send you our encouragement, hope and strength to come out of this legal battle standing tall.
Lawyers and activists like you fighting for justice are subject to intimidation and pressure. It’s human nature to feel threatened and to back down. But it takes courage and determination to not let it not bother you.
Thank you for being that testament of courage.
For our children,
Every Indian citizen
