Bulli Bai: Hindutva Trolls Selling Muslim Women in Auctions?

India’s Hindutva political wing has been a magnet for Islamophobes that exhibit odd and grotesque conduct — which might partly explain why India has a poor track record when it comes to keeping women safe. 

When they aren’t advocating mass rape of Muslim women, Hindutva-sympathizers attempt to sell Muslim women (derogatorily regarded as “Bullis” and “Sulliss”) in mock human auctions done over the internet.

Yes, they are that pathetic.


On January 1, Quratulain Rehbar, a journalist from Indian-administered Kashmir, woke up to see herself listed for an “online auction”. Her photograph was sourced without her permission and uploaded on an app for “sale”

Photographs of more than 100 Muslim women, including prominent actress Shabana Azmi, wife of a sitting judge of Delhi High Court, multiple journalists, activists and politicians were displayed on the app for auction as “Bulli Bai” of the day.

The mastermind behind the app was recently caught by the New Delhi police who in turn revealed a deeply disturbing characterization of the alleged perpetrator.

Suspected Bulli Bai’ app creator, 20-year-old Niraj Bishnoi had 153 porn film downloads and lewd, sexual content in his laptop, sources in the Delhi Police claimed Thursday. The evidence in his laptop suggest Bishnoi is a “porn addict” and “has abnormal desires towards elderly Muslim women”

Bishnoi is also being investigated for his role in “Sulli Deals,” a now defunct website that was set up last year which also posted Muslim women for mock auctions.

Along with him, additional individuals (all of them being college students) have been brought in and are currently being questioned for their roles in the app and website.

While the depth of the situation is still unfolding, the reality is that these students are likely the least of the Ummah’s problems. Trolls can’t compare to some of the most repulsive individuals that Hindu nationalism proliferates (even by right-wing standards).

The New York Times:

Hundreds of right-wing Hindu activists and monks rose in unison at a conference this week to take an oath: They would turn India, constitutionally a secular republic, into a Hindu nation, even if doing so required dying and killing.

“If 100 of us are ready to kill two million of them, then we will win and make India a Hindu nation,” said Pooja Shakun Pandey, a leader of Hindu Mahasabha, a group that espouses militant Hindu nationalism

The crowded auditorium…included influential religious leaders with close ties to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governing party, and even some members of the party.

Compared to advocating crusade against Muslims all over India, is the inconsequential Bulli Bai and Sulli Deals fiasco such a big deal?

Shouldn’t Indians be more worried about total societal collapse and genocide via Hindutva evil and idiocy rather than perverse college students operating troll websites?

Selling women or ما ملكت ايمانكم is not haram according to the Quran and sunnah. The problem here is that these Hіndutvа individuals (who want to wage a Ніndu jіhаd to make India into the Hindu khіlаfa) are doing it illegally against their own country’s current law (and against their own country’s local Muslim Zimmy people), and not in a legal regulated licensed concubinage system dealing with foreign-origin women like what Muslim societies practiced for 13 centuries.


Why do you downvote my comment when I just started a simple Islamic fact that you don’t deny? Those fascist pagans that you condemn want to revive sunnahs that modern Muslims have abandoned, such as Hindu versions of concubinage, jіhаd, ummаh national reunification, and khilаfа. The only unfortunate problem is that it is our homies the Muslims (instead of other non-Muslim people) who are on the receiving end of the pagans’ revival of our sunna.


“O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
Quran 33:50


selling women and selling war captives is a different thing, hope you understand that. and you are saying that hindus are riving a unnah!? are you serious!
and it is not that modern muslims have abandoned the sunna of ‘ma malkut imanukum’ because these are the war captives and you know we don’t have such wars anymore and so no war captives. islam does not allow you to keep any person as a slave or a sex slave it is only about the war captives.


Yes there are cuffarts who follow or revive some sunnahs but they modify it into their own caaphirized version. Such as the Amish Christians and Haredi Jews following Resoolullah advice to live in isolated rural areas to avoid the cultural fitna of the cities. And these hіndutvans are doing what Muslims should have been doing since long ago, such as making khіlаfа (a country specially dedicated for the followers of one faith community). You said that Ma melket Aimankum is only war captives. Well guess what, read the article, they just said that they want to make a holy war against Мuslіms, that’s how they make Мuslіmаhs into their own version of Milk L Yemeen concubines. From our point of view what they are doing wrong, just because it is our people who are on the receiving end of their actions.


I dont know if you’re purposefully being stupid or just accidentally being stupid but I’ll give u the benefit of the doubt that it’s by accident. To wage war against your own citizens who are not taking up arms against you removes all meaning to the term war. Islamic govts never waged war against its own citizens who weren’t actively treasonous and rebeling against the state, no matter their religious affiliations. Could you cite where you learned that the Prophet (Salallah Alayhi wa Salam) encouraged Muslims to avoid cities and move to rural areas, or did you also make that up with the other nonsense?


If you read my comments, in no way am I advocating to wage war against Muslims or anyone. However I am explaining that those saffron guys are plagiarising Islamic concepts and twisting it into their own cuffarized version to use against our homies. I tried to post the hadeeth about making hijra to rural areas to escape the fitna of society, but this website software is hiding the hadeeth in the name of “waiting for approval”.


Let’s try posting that hadeeth again (this time without the Arabic) to see if it will show up this time.
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri narrated: Allah’s Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Soon a Muslim’s best property will be a flock of sheep he takes to a mountain-top, or in a rainy valleys, fleeing with his religion from tribulations.”
