News of eight-year-old Asifa Bano’s rape has taken India by storm. The young girl had gone missing in early January 2018 and was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the Hiranagar tehsil of Hindu-dominated Kathua district, initial reports suggested.
While tensions between Pakistan and India have always been on the high, celebrities from both sides of the border have come together to now demand justice for innocent Asifa.
Armeena Rana Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Nawazuddin Siddiqui amongst many others addressed the huge act of crime.

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.
