Mumbai, April 29, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Veteran singer Hema Sardesaai who splashed into limelight once again with her provocative statement about casting couch's existence in Bollywood, has once again came forward and spoken for the 5-year old Delhi rape victim.

"The inhuman gruesome rapes of tender little girls are utterly shameful to our supposedly progressing and civilized country. Where there is no respect there is no fear. Is the alarming increase in rapes and other crime rates due to to the administration having lost respect? Easy access to pornography and alcohol too are major factors which contribute to heinous crimes. Also there are no stringent laws endorsing severe enough punishments," said Hema Sardesaai.

Being a Brand Ambassador of Save The Girl Child Foundation, the singer added, "A country that cannot protect its women folk simply cannot progress. These horrific crimes are already heralding disasters to come. It is time that along with women, the men of our country come down really heavily on this collapse of law and order in our country, before it is too late."

Hema's upcoming movie is called The Coffin Maker where she has sung three numbers under Bappi Lahiri's compositions. The film features Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda in the lead roles.
