Shut all temples where you pretend to worship the female form: Mahesh Bhatt
The horrific gang rape of Damini, 23, and her death have triggered anguish, anger and outrage throughout the country with people including Bollywood stars demanding death penalty for the criminals, and gender equality, better status and safety laws for women.

"WE COULDN'T save you but what a big voice you have, you brave little girl. That voice is telling us that rape is not an aberration, not a mistake. Rape embodies sexuality as our culture and society has defined it," Shahrukh Khan said.

Bollywood stars took to Twitter and urged India to wake up and respect and protect women. Here are some of the tweets of Bollywood stars reacting on the tragic death of 23-year-old gang rape victim who died in Singapore on Saturday morning.

May SHE become the wake-up call our country needs! We must soul search. Female foeticide; inequal access to nutrition, education, health; no decision making powers; dowry demands; rapes rampant. INDIA WAKE UP - Shabana Azmi
