HOW do human beings go through evil acts on another human? During an act, how do they not stop? Is there no concience? No guilt? No regret? No humanity? HOWWW do you allow yourself to go through raping and killing a child?! Cannot understand it. #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.

Another young girl, another innocent victim! It breaks my heart to see that religion and political differences could come in the way of humanity. It scares me to think how did we get this far as a society? Justice needs to be served. #JusticeForAsifa

This beautiful baby haunts me. Perhaps every parent is similarly affected? The pig tails, the innocence… sedated, raped, head bashed in? Devastating to even think about. Citizens of India, where are we going? #justiceforAsifa pic.twitter.com/cBOh07wvK2

Am told @RahulGandhi will lead midnight vigil at India Gate for #Asifa – very welcome move after unfortunate prevarications of Congress until now on #KathuaRape. Please also disown local congress leaders who backed the rapists. Am glad the candles are coming out #JusticeForAsifa

Filled with so much anger and disgust over what has happened with Asifa. Only demons would inflict cruelty like this on an 8 year old. Pray for her soul, fight for #JusticeForAsifa. These atrocities need to end and it needs to end now.

We have failed as a society! Being a father, I am shaken and filled with anger reading about what happened to a 8 year old kid. My heart goes out to Asifa's family. I refuse to accept we really let THIS happen. Justice has to be served NOW. #JusticeforAsifa

Don't make this about Hindu vs Muslim.
Don't make this about BJP vs Congress.
Don't make this about men vs women.
Make this about US against the monsters who exist in our society. Don't support them. Let's actively come together and take them down.#JusticeForAsifa

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

Heart- wrenching knowing about what they did to an 8 year old. They are not humans. An 8 year old kid has had to bear the brunt of the system. Every human being would want #JusticeforAsifa and this justice should not be delayed. pic.twitter.com/LDa1dEfxct

"We demand that strong punishment should be awarded to all the accused and justice delivered to the victim family"
Would really request the government to please have strict rules for such a crime..#JusticeforAsifa

Shame. Shame on us for letting religious & political issues come in the way of humanity. Shame on us for waking up to this heinous crime months later,after international media has highlighted it. Shame on us for not being able to protect the girls of our country. #JusticeForAsifa

Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered.
If you don’t feel her terror, you are not human.
If you don’t demand Asifa get justice, you belong to nothing.

How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?
What happened to Asifa at #Kathua is a crime against humanity. It cannot go unpunished.
What have we become if we allow politics to interfere with such unimaginable brutality perpetrated on an innocent child?
