'16th December, 2012', a date that will live in infamy in Indian history as a 23-year old medical student was gang-raped, assaulted and thrown out of a moving bus. This horrendous incident has taken the country by storm, and International Celebrity and Actress Sherlyn Chopra extended her support to the victim by lighting a candle and saying a little prayer for her on Christmas.

`I am deeply saddened by what happened to the victim in Delhi, I am hoping for a miraculous recovery for the brave young girl. I also wish that her family has the courage to sail through the tough times,` expressed Sherlyn.

Sherlyn has decided not to celebrate Christmas this year, and the actress shared, `I decided to wear black as a mark of protest against the absence of humanity and justice. I condemn the unlawful use of force and the way the non-violent protestors were manhandled at India Gate.`

Sherlyn has created quite a movement by making her followers consciousabout the situation on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Women safety should be on top priority according to Sherlyn and she has a few suggestions, `Security should be tightened for public transport services and the government should be in a proactive rather than reactive mode.`

Sherlyn continues to pray for the girl along with rest of the nation and is hoping that an incident like this is dealt with severity.
