Last year the app was launched with the purpose of auctioning Muslim women with photographs sourced without consent and morphed. Sulli Deals and Bulli Bai apps, have just one modus operandi—to upload doctored and morphed pictures of Muslim women without their permission and to pass racial slurs while circulating the images. Both these apps were hosted on the hosting platform ‘GitHub’.
