It is pertinent to mention that Deepika is the lawyer of Asifa an 8 year old nomadic Bakerwal girl who was allegedly abducted raped drugged and tortured in a temple, before being dumped in nearby forests in Kathua.


  1. Again, you are being unfair to a woman. In fact, all the former leaders from Nehru, Shaikh Abdullah, and the present “majoritarianism followers” good for nothing, except for their high-sounding brags, for the past four (4) years, must be meted out what you are “proposing”!!. It is they who tried just might, no mind, money, no honey, power, no shower, boots, no food, and the list continues. They should ask themselves, “had the situation been reversed, you were in their predicament”, what were you going to do? Don’t bring in the issue of patriotism, the world has noted for over thousand years, you didn’t feel this upsurge and uptick. So, come to ground. Period!

  2. Brave lady fighting for truth and justice!
    Hats off to her!
    Unfortunately Muslim leaders today are not being brave , wise, truthful or just..
