Controversial 'It's my fault' rape video goes viral in India
NEW DELHI (AFP) - A video by a group of comedians that lampoons controversial comments by public figures after the gang-rape of a student in New Delhi last December has gone viral.
The satirical video features Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin and television host Juhi Pandey explaining why women must take the blame for the rising number of rapes in India.
"Scientific studies suggest that women who wear skirts are the leading cause of rape. Do you know why? Because men have eyes," Koechlin says at the start of the video, which runs for almost four minutes.
Koechlin goes on to show examples of "provocative" clothing, including a woman covered in a black burqa and a spacesuit complete with a helmet.
