Bulli Bai

What is Bulli Bai Auction? Why is this App Targeting Muslim Women? All you Need to know:


Government working with police in Delhi and Mumbai to take action against Bulli Bai app, says Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister.

Following outrage over a new app that puts out a list of Muslim women up for ‘auction’ along with their photographs, Union Minister for Electronics and IT Ashwini Vaishnaw on Sunday said the government is working with the local police in Delhi and Mumbai on the matter.

The app ‘Bulli Bai’, which has now been removed, was hosted on GitHub. It is the second such instance in almost six months wherein Muslim women have been put up for ‘auction’ along with photographs largely from their social media accounts without permission. In July, last year, such pictures were shared on an app called ‘Sulli deals’, which was also hosted on GitHub, with the phrase ‘Sulli deal of the day’.

A complaint with regards to the ‘Bulli Bai’ app has been filed with the Delhi as well as Mumbai police. While FIRs were filed in the case of ‘Sulli Deals’ as well, no concrete action against those behind the app has come out yet.

Ms. Chaturvedi, giving an update on the issue, said, “On 01/01/2020, West Region Cyber police Station, Mumbai has registered CR No.01/2022, U/S 153(A), 153(B), 295(A), 354D, 509, 500 IPC r/w 67 IT Act against above mentioned twitter handle holders and ‘Bulli Bai’ app developer hosted on GitHub.”
