Delhi gangrape: Rahul Bose favours turning fiendish accused into 'gender warriors'
"... We have to ask ourselves of the five or six of the rapists of the December 16 is there anyone who wants to change, who wants to reform... Nobody is saying about commuting any sentence, the sentence stands as it is but while it stands can we create a gender warrior among them?" he asked.
The actor was participating in a year-long "Ring The Bell" campaign launched by NGO Breakthrough which seeks to mobilise one million men around the world to commit to taking concrete action to end violence against women.
"If anybody is open to reaffirmation do we have it in us to subvert our patriarchal mindset and tell them that we are ready to confer even the right to reform to you even if there is such a massive public upsurge against you," said Bose.
The actor further said,"If we have to move further civilisational as a society, if we have to evolve as a civilisation further beyond the boundaries of India then we
have to look at forgiveness."
The 23-year girl, who was gangraped by six men in a moving bus on December 16, died in a Singapore hospital after battling for life.
The campaign "One million men. One million promises to end violence against women", simultaneously launched today in six cities across the world
