The perpetrators did not even forgive Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani Nobel laureate. “Bulli Bai” was the second such attempt in less than a year, after the “Sulli Deals” in July, in which nearly 80 Muslim women were “for sale.” “In local lingo, both ‘Bulli’ and ‘Sulli’ are derogatory terms for Muslim women.
“However, this time the Punjabi language was used alongside English in the ‘Bulli Bai’ interface,” journalist Mohammad Zubair of fact-checking website AltNews told Al Jazeera.
