From suggesting that the rape victim should have dressed appropriately to blaming a woman’s ‘stars’, numerous bizarre reasons have been cited to justify rape. Some even blamed chowmein and mobile phones.
At a time when the country is in the grip of what seems like a rape epidemic, with people venting their anger through different media, a comedy podcast ‘AIB’ has come up with a different answer.
The AIB, brainchild of comedians Tanmay Bhat, Rohan Joshi, Ashish Shakya and Gursimran Khamba, have launched a satirical video.
