Now, while sentiments are running high all across the country, this is still a lawmaker calling for mob justice for criminals, irrespective of how heinous the crimes may be. 

Bachchan’s comments have drawn some sharp responses on Twitter, with many believing that her call of lynching is the way to go. 

That being said, the former actress is also being severely criticised by those who don’t see mob justice as a viable solution. 

Earlier Hyderabad Police had issued a 16-point advisory for women safety, which had also caused an uproar on Twitter as it was only addressed to women.
