"When you speak on an issue they say, you only speak do not do anything... when you do not speak on issue they say you never speak. The fear of system, of order, of conduct guided by justice, is fast disappearing. Is this the freedom that our elders fought for," he added.

The brutal rape and torture took place Sunday night when the woman along with her male friend after watching a movie boarded a private bus at Munirka in south Delhi to go to Dwarka in west Delhi.

Big B says that if goddesses are worshiped in India, how can we treat girls so badly?

"Durga, Kali, Lakshmi are goddesses... we pay homage to them, respect them. Women need to be respected, and given pride of place. On this public platform I dare not even attempt to mention the details of the rape case... even an animal would not behave so," he wrote.
