A satirical video that mocks those who blame women for the rise in sexual crimes in India has gone viral on the Internet.

The video, featuring actor Kalki Koechlin and VJ Juhi Pande, waxes on the theme 'Rape? Ladies, it's your fault', and lampoons deep-seated patriarchal mindsets that blame a woman for inviting sexual assault.

A smiling Kalki and Juhi are seen saying why rape is inevitable if women wear short clothes and how they can avoid it by calling the rapists "bhaiya (brother)" - taking off on a shocking comment made by self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, who is now in jail over allegations of sexual assault.
