Outraged over the lynching incident in Dadri, actor Farhan Akhtar today said the guilty should get strict punishment to send a strong message that such "kangaroo justice" will not be allowed.
In an emotionally-charged post on Facebook, the filmmaker-actor also decried the political "circus" over the killing of a 50-year-old man by a mob in his village after rumours that he and his family had consumed beef.
"They (culprits) should be given the harshest punishment to send a message out that this sort of kangaroo justice will not be allowed in our nation," Farhan wrote.
The actor feared that the guilty may never be brought to book.
Here's the entire letter:
Farhan said he feared that "what has happened once can surely happen again", unless people unite and demand immediate action.
