The Krishnanagar MP shared the statement by Bano in which she said that the premature release of the convicts has shaken faith in justice and left her numb.

“How can justice for any woman end like this? Amit Shah? Narendra Modi? India? Indians?” Moitra tweeted.

“Pregnant mother’s child snatched from her belly and other child killed in front of her. These rapists and murderers feted after being let out in shortest possible time. And we are lectured on how to respect women?” Moitra asked in an indirect reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi Independence Day speech where he urged people to pledge not to do anything that lowers the dignity of women.

She further said, “This nation had better decide whether Bilkis Bano is a woman or a Muslim.”
