New Delhi: After Akshay Kumar’s anguished avatar over Bengaluru mass-molestation, Indian Cricket team skipper Virat Kohli on Friday said that he is ashamed to be a part of such society in which such incidents take place.

Expressing his concern over the growing injustice against women, Virat picked the micro-blogging site Twitter to share two videos.

What Virat said in the videos:

• The mass-molestation in Bengaluru is really disturbing. To see something like that happen to those girls and for people to watch it and not do anything about it, I think it is a cowardly act.

• Those people don’t have any right to call themselves men. I have only one question, If something like that happened god for bid to someone in your family would you stand and watch or would you help. That is my only question

• And I think these things are allowed to happen and people stand there and they watch these things happen and they are fine with it because they think its absolutely fine for something like that to happen to a girl just because she is wearing short clothes. Its her life, decision and choice

• For men to accept that its an opportunity for us to do something like this and get away with it and people empowered try to defend it, its absolutely horrible.

• I think as a society these things are in certain people’s head acceptable to a certain degree, it is disturbing and shocking. And I am ashamed to be a part of this society.

• I think we need to change our thinking; we need to treat men and women in the same way, be respectful and treat women with some compassion.

Everybody, whether it is Bollywood or Cricket fraternity, is condemning the horrifying incident in which a girl was molested on the streets of Bengaluru. The anger among all rose to next levels when a Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi, after the Bengaluru incident, said that girls should stay inside their homes.
