Speaking on this, Rani has said that,
“college kids, given their age, are quite vulnerable to this threat against them and there is a growing sense of this fear among families because all we want is to protect our children and give them a great, unscarred future. I want to connect with as many students as possible through my campaign and bring as much awareness about the sharp rise in violent crimes committed by juveniles against young women in India”
She also adds,
“Students need to be made aware of the menace because the threat is all around them, walking with them, sitting around and them and constantly looking at them as prey. It’s a tough world we are living in and raising our children, especially our daughters, and we have to protect them at any cost. I hope I can spread the message of awareness to as many people as possible”
