No Laugh­ing Mat­ter

India Today - - NET FLUX -

Na­tional Re­port, a satir­i­cal news site, re­cently wrote about one ‘As­sam Rape Fes­ti­val’. Writ­ten by Paul Horner, the ar­ti­cle, pub­lished along with a pic­ture of men bran­dish­ing knives, stated the As­samese tra­di­tion be­gan when a man raped an en­tire vil­lage. How­ever, the joke back­fired when some ne­ti­zens took the re­port se­ri­ously. It has now been shared over 650,000 times on Face­book.
