New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday appealed to the national capital’s people to raise their voice in case of crime against another member of the public.
“In Delhi’s Anand Parbat area, a teenaged girl, Meenakshi, was brutally stabbed to death in full public view, but no one came to her rescue. There are several such incidents where miscreants commit crime in public but people remain mute spectators. This is not fair,” he said.
“If we see a girl being attacked in public, we may be scared for our own safety and not intervene, thinking the attacker may harm us on being stopped. But just think what if she was our daughter or sister. Would we still keep quiet?” the chief minister added.
“So let’s take a pledge that we will not be mute spectators when we witness a crime being committed. Let’s pledge that we will try to stop the crime,” Kejriwal said.
“Delhi will become safe only when we work together,” he said.
