New Delhi: Following Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor's tweet proposing to name the anti-rape law by the victim's real name, twitteratis joined the debate expressing their opinions and views. While some people supported Tharoor's call, others claimed that naming anti-rape law behind the victim's name would not honour her.

Tharoor had on Tuesday tweeted – “Wondering what interest is served by continuing anonymity of  DelhGangRape victim. Why not name&honour her as a real person w/own identity?” Continuing his demand, the minister further tweeted - “Unless her parents object,she should be honoured&the revised anti-rape law named after her. She was a human being w/a name,not just a symbol.”
