In the wake of recent incidents of alleged gangrapes and murders of minors that have gripped the country, Mahindra Group chairperson Anand Mahindra has said he would unhesitatingly volunteer to “execute” rapists and murderers of young girls in the country.
Taking to his Twitter account, the industrialist retweeted a story on the alleged Surat rape and murder case of an unidentified minor girl and wrote that though he tries hard to maintain a calm persona, his blood boils to see such things happen in India.
“The job of executioner is not an aspirational job. But for the execution of brutal rapists & murderers of young girls I would volunteer unhesitatingly. I work hard to stay calm, but my blood boils over to see this happen in our country,” wrote the 62-year-old business honcho.

The body of the girl, who is believed to be in the age group of 9 to 11 years, was recovered from a cricket field in Bhestan area of Surat on April 6 with 86 injury marks.
The report came when the country has already been rocked with Unnao and Kathua rape and cases.
The strong-worded post from a businesman, who is known to have a calm and quiet presence on social media spoke volumes.
Scores of twitter followers appreciated him and endorsed his views:
Your entire army of 6.6 million followers will be ready to be a part of this great deed.

This will remain one of the most memorable tweet for me & once again, I salute you for saying it the way it needs to be said, at the minimum, by all Indians. We should either give up our religion or fight these animals to their death
