Ashwini Vaishnaw said the government is working with police in Delhi and Mumbai to take action against Bulli Bai app.
Electronics and IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said the government was working with Delhi and Mumbai City Police on the issue after becoming angry with the new app with photos of the names of Muslim women ‘auction’ along with their photographs.
The now discontinued “Bulli bai” application has been hosted on GitHub. This is the second time in nearly six months that a Muslim woman has entered the “auction” without permission, often with photos from social media accounts.
Back in July, these photos were shared with the “Today Sulli Deal” article via an app called “Sully Deal” hosted on GitHub.
Complaints have been received by the Delhi and Mumbai police regarding the “Bulli bai” application. In the case of “Sulli deail”, FIR received, but no special action was taken on the back of the app.
“Government. The Indian government is working with the Delhi and Mumbai Police Departments on this issue,” Vaishnaw tweeted.
Regarding Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi, who raised the issue earlier, the Director said: “GitHub recognized its own blocked users this morning. CERT and the police cooperate. No more work.
However, he did not provide further details. Many women whose photos have been misused have also expressed their frustration and anger over the issue on social media such as Twitter.
“The person who created this app did something illegal. However, users who allow these applications to run or maintain on the platform / cloud are not exempt from their liability.
Sanchit Vir Gogia, Founder and CEO of Greyhound Research, said: “It is their sole responsibility and expertise not to do this,” he said.
Chaturvedi amended the question saying: “On January 1, 2020, from Cyber Police Department West of Mumbai, CR No. 01/2022, U / S 153 (A), 153 (B), 295 (A) , 354D, 509, 500 IPC r / w 67 IT is the copyright holder of the aforementioned Twitter feed and the developer of the “Bulli Bai” app hosted on GitHub.
