'It's Your Fault' Rape Satire Goes Viral (Video)

By Susan Duclos

The satirical piece "It's Your Fault" was uploaded to YouTube on September 19, 2013 and has already garnered over 900,000 hits and still rising fast as more become aware of it.

Created by the popular Mumbai-based group All India Bakchod (AIB), which is a group of four stand-up comics, Rohan Joshi, Tanmay Bhat, Gursimran Khamba and Ashish Shakya, that believed the issue of women in India being blamed for molestation and rape needed to be addressed, and so they did so in a mocking manner. It features Kalki Koechlin and Juhi Pande

Juhi tells The Times Of India "We knew when we were shooting the video that it would get a lot of reactions. Eyebrows would be raised and there would be a lot of discussion. We've all had these discussions in our social groups and have all felt angry and frustrated at these statements that have made headlines. Yes, this video will only reach the English-speaking, 'sarcasm-understanding' young person, but at least it's out there. It's a drop in the ocean, but it is still a drop and I am glad to be have been a part of it."
