What is ‘Bulli Bai’ App

‘Bulli Bai’ is webpage-based app where photographs of several Muslim women were uploaded for ‘auction’, sparking widespread outrage. This is similar to the ‘Sulli Deals’ case in July last year.

The app ‘Bulli Bai’ works just the same way as ‘Sulli Deals’ did. Muslim women with a strong presence on Twitter, including journalists, were singled out and their photos uploaded.

While there was no actual ‘auction’ or ‘sale’, the purpose of the app seemed to be to humiliate and intimidate the targeted women, many of whom are active social media users.
