The Assam Rape Festival in India begins this week ?
Of Course the ‘Assam Rape Festival’ Isn’t Real! It’s Target, However, Is

Five days ago, US-based nationalreport.net ran the piece ‘Assam Rape Festival in India Begins in a Week‘. It was a hideous, repulsive story about an inhuman tradition. A Rape festival; an age-old tradition that originated in 43 BC when B. Tamil Nadu raped everyone in his village Doomdooma. This act was being celebrated even in 2013!
“We rape the evil demons out of the girls, otherwise they will cheat on us and we will be forced to kill them. So it is necessary for everyone.” explained Madhuban Ahluwalia, the convener of the Assam Rape Festival. Participants talked about how they were ‘practicing rape’ (?) on their sisters and their friends. There is also the quintessential white-tourist interviewee – Brian Barnett – who is appalled and passes judgment on such savagery and promises to leave India as soon as possible.
The piece has gone viral over social media – leaving people stunned, shocked, aroused, intrigued, repulsed, hurt or ready for activism. But, of course, the truth is there IS no such festival. It was a satirical piece that tried to target the rise of sexual assaults on women in India. But the site found themselves to be the butt of the joke as thousands saw, shared and commented on the piece – without realizing the glaring signs of inept satire. In fact, someone even started a petition to stop the festival. The very fact that people all over – even in Bangladesh – thought the Assam Rape Festival a real phenomenon, reflects poorly on India and has left the State of Assam seething. READ MORE HERE

Madhuban Ahluwalia who heads up the annual festival told reporters why the event is so important. “This is a long time tradition in Assam dating back thousands of years,” says Ahluwalia. “We rape the evil demons out of the girls, otherwise they will cheat on us and we will be forced to kill them. So it is necessary for everyone.”
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”.
24-year-old Harikrishna Majumdar told reporters that he has been training all year for this event. “I’m going to get the most rapes this year. I’ve been practicing all year. I rape my sister and her friends every day. I will be rape superstar number one! I will get the Baalkrishan prize this year for sure!”Buffer
