Red face ‘Assam Rape Festival’ article by US website sparks row

‘Assam Rape Festival’ article by US website sparks row





"Men in India are already beginning to celebrate as the annual Assam Rape Festival is just days away. Every non-married girl age 7-16 will have the chance to flee to safety or get raped," the article said.

Ironically, nowhere in the article is it mentioned that the report is a satire, which caused defamatory and anti-Indian comments to be published by the readers.

The article has sparked widespread protests among the people in Assam, who say it has tarnished the image of the state.

There are mentions about other Indian states, too. “The Assam Festival began in 43 BC when Baalkrishan Tamil Nadu raped everyone in his village of Doomdooma. Baalkrishan Tamil Nadu is remembered every year at this event, in fact the trophy given to the man with the most rapes is called The Baalkrishan”.

The Assam criminal investigation department has registered a suo motu case against the website for posting the defamatory article. CID additional superintendent of police Nirmal Baishya said that investigations have revealed that the article was sourced from Uganda and the website is hosted in Houston in the US.

Re: ‘Assam Rape Festival’ article by US website sparks row

Sorry for generalizing the issue in such this way, but you dumb stupid cretins got to realize the power of the media especially when it comes to influencing dumber masses than yourself respectfully.

You see, writing an article about an assholic 'rape festival' allows the Hindus of India to be categorized in a more demeaning way and manner. These same people will never dare write about any such 'rape' festivals in the Middle East or Europe, but they get extra bonus points about writing such trash about the Hindu people of this world.

That is pretty much the purpose of the entire legion of the so called English media of India today.

Hilarious and sad. Hilarious the way it was written and sad due to tarnishing Indian image outside.
