“AS A SOCIETY, WE HAVE BECOME BLOODTHIRSTY” : SAYS ACTRESS SWARA BHASKAR

A group of student leaders from JNU and social activists launched a national campaign against mob lynching in Delhi on Monday. Citing the recent cases of mob lynching, the committee (formed by the student leaders and activists) demanded a law against mob lynching and to make it a non-bailable offence with a life sentence. The members plan to prepare a draft law and present it to the central and state governments for consideration. The campaign also had actress and JNU alumna Swara Bhaskar lending her support.  Swara Bhaskar says, “This (lynching by a mob) is a topic that disturbs me a lot. It can happen to anyone in today’s time- the problem is, it has become so common now. You can be at risk for anything you do. See what happened with Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of ‘Padmavati’ because a group of people did not agree with him on a certain topic from our history.”  The Times  of  India ; 6th. June,17
