JIH(Women’s Wing) Demands Strong Action Against Culprits Involved in Defaming Indian Muslim Women Through “Sulli Deal” App

India Tomorrow

NEW DELHI—Women’s wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has demanded immediate and strong action against all those involved in putting dozens of Indian Muslim women on an app and a website called “Sulli Deals”.

The word “Sulli” is a derogatory slang used for Muslim women by Islamophobic elements in India.

The app had put pictures of the Muslim women, along with their twitter user names, which they had procured from the women’s twitter handles.

The pictures were there on the app for about 25 days but no one came to know about it. The Muslim women came to know about it only after someone shared the pictures on twitter. The purpose was to defame Muslim women who are assertive and working in different fields.

The app was, however, deleted by Github, the web platform that hosted the website, after the women lodged complaints with the police in Delhi and Noida. However, the police have so far failed to find the accused persons behind the mischief.

Reacting to the development, JIH (women’s wing) national secretary Rahmathunnisa A said, “The incident should not be treated mere a cybercrime as it is a deliberate act to discourage and scare women and girls of a certain community to pursue their dreams and become contributing members of the society”.

She made the comments while delivering her presidential speech at an online programme of young women and girls organized by the Girls Islamic Organisation (GIO) Central Coordination Committee. She asked police authorities to find out those involved in the crime and ensure stringent punishment to ensure that such things did not occur again with women from any other community.

Addressing the programme, Shayma S, PHD scholar in JNU and sub-editor of the Aura E-Magazine, said that Muslim women faced unique challenges in university and college campuses. She said that if more girls joined universities and colleges, they would be in a better position to face the challenges before the Muslim women.
