Abhishek Bachchan wrote, "I have always been a very proud Indian. Today, we should ALL be ashamed. Will it always take an innocents death for a nation to awake? This is not the country I grew up in as a child, this is not the country I want my daughter to know whilst she grows up!."
Singer Lata Mangeshkar said, "Enough is enough. It is not the death of Nirbhay Damini but the death of humanity in our country. It is time for the government to wake up from its deep slumber and punish the criminals behind this heinous crime."
Gul Panag wrote, "Woke up to news I have been dreading. May our Hero rest in peace, and may God give her family strength."

"Safety of women is a prerequisite of a civilised society. We do not want to be deified as goddesses we want equality we demand respect. It is time to reflect, to analyse, to soul search how each segment has been culpable and led to a mindset that makes man treat woman like property (sic)."
Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur said, "Her greatest betrayal is that we will forget. Political system's greatest hope is we will forget. Our only redemption is if we do not forget."
Mahesh Bhatt: "Shut all temples where you pretend to worship the female form. Cry India! Your hands are drenched with the blood of your own daughters. Woman your silence will not protect you. Speak or be silenced forever. Rage."

Actress Sonam Kapoor wrote, "Please don't let her tragic death be in vain. RIP"
Payal Rohatgi tweeted,"Just got up to this news.I wanted her to live. She was so brave.I want the culprits DEAD. She didn't deserve this.Rest in peace."

Ajay Devgn twitted,"Why does someone need to be sacrificed to start a revolution? I hope her sacrifice is not in vain!."

Let this brave girl\\\'s soul rest in peace. But we Indians should not sleep till a total change to the attitude of people changes towards women. It is a shame on all of us that we are letting the criminals go scot free and there are many more Ram Singhs amongst the public too. So let us all join hands and see that strict measures are taken against even the smallest of the smallest crimes against women - so that this type tragic incidents will never happen. What to talk of progress and development of India where people have no respect for ae0dewomen. Do they not think twice when they have their own sisters and mother and this is a stage where we are heading towards self-destruction of the country. These criminals should be hanged to death in public so that it will create fear atleast as they do not respect women or treat them with humanity and dignity.
