The students say that they have taken this program out of anger over the incidents of rape in the country. Their goal was to start walking from a district 100 km away from Dhaka. That is why Kishoreganj was chosen.

Iftikhar Alam told to the media,”we want a permanent solution to the rape case. The rapist should be punished in solitary confinement, the maximum punishment should be given. The maximum punishment for murder is also death. Yet murder is not decreasing in society. So first of all we have to create an environment to stop rape in society.
