Prime minister Narendra Modi broke his silence on the Unnao and Kathua rape cases on Friday (13 April) and calling them "shameful". While the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), yesterday, arrested BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the accused in the Unnao rape case, the Kathua rape case has seen no further development.

Female artistes from the Hindi film industry - from actresses Swara Bhaskar, Kalki Koechlin, Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha, Konkona Sensharma, Sai Tamhankar to filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava - held up placecards condemning the rapists and the lack of justice for the young victim.

Since then, more members of the Indian film industry have continued to voice their anger. Arjun Kapoor, Kajol, filmmaker-turned-politician Kamal Haasan, singer-composer Vishal Dadlani, Preity Zinta, Farhan Akhtar all spoke up on behalf of the 8-year-old Ashifa.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Hansal Mehta changed his Twitter profile to Ashifa's photo and put up a change.org petition, asking his followers to sign it.
