Just when one thought that the law and order prevail in India, the mass molestation of women in Bengaluru on New Year’s eve collectively shocked the entire nation. Adding oil to the fire, politicians like Karnataka’s Home Minister G. Parameshwara and Samajwadi Party MLA Abu Azmi’s statements angered the country more when they blamed women’s dressing and western culture for the incident.
Salim took to Twitter to address Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the matter needed to be looked at immediately. He wrote, “Honble PM Narendrabhai, you have time and again mentioned that Indias youth will drive the country forward. Its a shame what the youth have done in Bngluru.

Meanwhile, Superstar Aamir Khan has condemned the New Year Eve molestation incident in Bengaluru, terming it as extremely shameful and saddening.
“What happened in Bangalore was very sad. We all are saddened and feel ashamed when something like this happens in our country. Every state government should take a step for this,” Aamir told reporters in Mumbai.
“In today’s age, people who misbehave with girls think ‘nothing will happen to us’. When such examples come in front of us, that whoever did this is behind bars within 2-3 months, and continuously if we see this, situation will change. There will be fear among people, which is a very important thing,” the actor said.
