The news of the rape of a five-year-old girl has left the entire Bollywood numb, including actor-activist Shabana Azmi. She feels that the problem lies in the society and individuals.

The 61-year-old will talk abut "gender sensitisation" at a conference organised by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) in the national capital April 29.

"I am the keynote speaker at the conference organised by CISF in Delhi on April 29 on gender sensitisation followed by workshops by activists," tweeted Shabana.

"Certainty of conviction will act as a deterrent not severity. But the malaise lies in us as a society that women and children are brutalised," she further wrote.

The girl was abducted April 15 and held hostage in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar for over two days, according to police.
