After the barbaric Rohtak gang-rape, actress Shenaz Treasurywala tweeted to the Prime Minister and Supreme Court seeking action to ensure women's safety. 

However, the perfectly democratic way to bringing attention to her concerns about women’s safety has not gone down well with some people.

Internet trolls popped up abusing and trolling Treasurywala for ‘targeting’ PM Modi – the logic was that since she had not apparently criticized the previous Congress government for the menace of rapes in the country, she ought not to bring up the topic now.

In a fitting reply, Treasurywala has come out with an open letter, reports DNA.

She started with her own experience of feeling unsafe in the country, even from a position of greater security than most Indian women;  a large group of men followed her around in a Delhi museum, forcing her to leave.

A simple Ola or Uber ride is fraught with the possibilities of being molested or even raped, she notes.

She reiterated that she does not care who is at the power in Centre, as long as they ensure women’s safety in the country.

Till that happens, she would continue to appeal to higher authorities and do everything in her power to make India a safer place for her women.

The letter is indeed a powerful hitback to the trolls who ate trying to politicize blatant rapes and mistreatment of women across the country.
