The documentary "United Kingdom's Daughters", which seeks to highlight the incidence of rape in Western countries, especially in the UK, has evoked mixed reactions from people on social media.
While one of them reacted by saying "Shame on UK", another said, "Humiliating the victims for the sake of revenge is disgusting". Yet another said: "Shame on ppl who try to divide/objectify women".
The documentary, made by an Indian Harvinder Singh, is being perceived by some as a tit-for-tat response to "India's Daughter", the BBC documentary on the infamouse 16 December 2012 gang-rape of a 23-year-old physiotherapy student in Delhi.
While "India's Daughter" has been seen by some as an attempt to project India as a country of rapists, "United Kingdom's Daughters" apparently seeks to convey that rape is a global problem.
Singh, whose 28-minute documentary has been posted on YouTube, says rape is "much worse in western nations".
The documentary has gained traction on social media and has gone viral, with the name of the documentary trending as one of the top items on Twitter on Friday.
