Don’t Target People For Their Sexual Orientation, Says Celina Jaitley On The Orlando Shooting!


Don’t Target People For Their Sexual Orientation, Says Celina Jaitley On The Orlando Shooting!

The Orlando nightclub shooting has shocked the entire world. With at least 53 injured and 49 dead, it is being called the biggest mass killing after the 9/11. The deadly massacre at the Florida gay club is being seen more as an attack on the sentiments of the LGBT community. And giving it a powerful voice is Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley. The strong advocate of the LGBT rights feels shaken after the ugly incident.

“In the Orlando attack, everyone lost someone — parents, sisters, brothers, friends… It was unbearable for me to watch their plight of those who escaped and the trauma on their faces. What legacy are we giving our children?”

Celina has been supporting the equality of the LGBT community and gay rights movement in India and abroad. She has been involved in the community activities for the past 10 years. The former Miss India in an interview with DNA said the first news about the Orlando attack left her in immense shock and horror.

“It is very disheartening and is the biggest hate crimes act of its kind. Why do countries like the USA offer a buffet of guns to such demented minds? I saw on TV that this guy purchased his firearm a week ago. The law is the only thing making people equal, and the law sells guns. When guns fall into people’s hands, they commit the most heinous of crimes — hate crimes.

The 34-year-old actress asserted that targeting someone based on their sexual orientation needs to stop! She demanded the authorities to stop the easy access to guns.

“Some of those who went to the nightclub will never return to their homes again. They were targeted because of who they are, and their sexual orientation and that’s so terribly sad and tragic… Hate crimes are interconnected… They are contagious, so they just become bigger. This heinous crime will go down in history as one of the biggest hate crimes against the LGBTQI community. The lawmakers must revoke access to guns because the record of these weapons falling into wrong hands seems to be only growing and none instead of self-defense. The law is the only thing capable of making people equal. And safe!”

Omar Mateen, who single-handedly carried out the shootout has left a big question regarding the value of life and human rights. As the world continues to mourn the loss, it also needs to give it a thought as to how far can hatred take you!
