A year after ‘auction’ of outspoken Muslim women on social media Sulli deal, another shoddy app called Bulli Bai misused images and targeted women from the community.
- The bully by app controversy came to the fore on January 1 when several Muslim women found themselves ‘auctioned’ on the vile app. The app hosted by the GitHub platform had used his photos, many of them tampered with.
These goals included women of all age groups and women outspoken on burning political and social issues. Prominent journalists, activists and lawyers were among those listed for ‘auction’ in the disgusting app.
The app appears to be a clone of ‘Sully Deals’, which started a controversy last year by offering users ‘Sully’ – a derogatory term used by right-wing trolls for Muslim women. That too was hosted by GitHub.
Several opposition leaders, including Congress’s Rahul Gandhi and Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi, spoke on the issue, urging the government to crack down on the platform and bring justice to those behind it.
IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnav has said that the GitHub user behind the app was blocked and that “further action” was being coordinated. Mumbai Police has registered a case, Delhi Police is probing the matter and Delhi Commission for Women has issued notices to the police officials. According to reports, Mumbai Police has detained an engineering student from Bangalore in this connection.
