CERT-IN, Police will take further action, says the IT and Electronics Minister
Following the outrage over photos of on an app ‘Bulli Bai’ hosted on GitHub, IT and Electronics Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on January 2 said the user had been blocked and that the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) and police are working together for further action.
This is the second time in less than a year that pictures of many Muslim women, sourced largely from their social media accounts without permission, have been used on app called ‘Sulli Deals’.
Highlighting the issue, Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi tweeted, “I have repeatedly asked Hon. IT Minister ji to take stern action against such rampant misogyny and communal targeting of women through like platforms. A shame that it continues to be ignored.”
