Where are we heading to? Seriously a girl killed for wearing jeans. Unbelievable!! How can someone do it? It’s nothing but male chauvinism and the ego which allowed them to think it as disgrace. Shocking and unfortunate #WearPants

Such unfortunate incidences will continue to occur if we as a nation promote hatred, blind faith, religion over science, modernity, progress. We must educate the mind above everything else. That is the ill that plagues our country. Put India first !! #WearPants #UttarPradesh

So, this can happen to any of us now? I don’t see ‘these’ people targetting men for wearing pants but women are straight out murdered for something as inoffensive as wearing jeans? It’s 21st bloody century but women are still treated like shit. #wearpants #WomensRights
