JNU rapper Rahul Rajkhowa's latest target: rape jokes and fake

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A month after taking on the JNU Vice Chancellor with a rap that went viral, varsity student Rahul Rajkhowa is back with another angry number.

This time, the subjects of his ire are rape jokes and fake nationalism.

Angered by internet trolls and "some 50-year-olds" who called him a "rape artist" after his first video came out, Rajkhowa, in his song, says it is "abysmal" that one can crack and laugh at rape jokes in this day and age.

In the 3 minute 12 second number, he lists out the recent cases of horrific gang-rapes in Gurgaon, Rohtak and Meerut.

He also takes a dig at the "intolerant right-wing", bringing up the rape threats allegedly made online to martyr's daughter Gurmerhar Kaur.

On the imposition of nationalism, he says, "Just because you keep the Indian flag as your and twitter display picture, does not show any real love for the country. Instead do something for the poor and the hungry.
