- Swara Bhaskar in support of Muslim woman
- Richa Chadha and Farhan Akhtar also came in support
The beginning of the new year was not good for the Muslim women living in the country. Some time back there were reports that an online site is bidding for Muslim women. Now the year 2022 has already started and once again such a case has come to the fore. A Muslim woman named Ismat Ara has shared a post in which she has told about this. The woman is terming this as unfortunate and she believes that Muslim women are not safe in India. Bollywood has also come forward in support of this woman.
Muslim woman’s quote
Ismat Ara tweeted that- ‘It is very sad that a Muslim woman has to start the new year with this fear and despair. And of course, I am not alone, there are other women who have been targeted. This is the new version of #sullideals. This screenshot was shared by my friend in the morning. Please note that this is not the first time that this has happened. This time the name of the app in which the auction has taken place is ‘Bulli Bai’, whereas in the case that came up before this, the name of the app which conducted the auction was ‘Sulli Deals’.
It is very sad that as a Muslim woman you have to start your new year with this sense of fear & disgust. Of course it goes without saying that I am not the only one being targeted in this new version of #sullideals, Screenshot sent by a friend this morning.
Happy new year. pic.twitter.com/pHuzuRrNXR

At that point where we’ve to remind ourselves that it’s not okay to SELL MUSLIM WOMEN ONLINE! Remind ourselves that it’s not kosher to rally & call for genocide! That it’s not okay to disrupt people’s prayers. This is happening in our name, in the name of our Gods. It’s on us!

Now Bollywood has come in support of Ismat. Swara Bhaskar and Farhan Akhtar have encouraged Ismat and have taken her stand. Swara wrote that- We have to remind ourselves that it is not right to sell Muslim women online. This is nothing less than a massacre. It is not good that we make fun of people’s prayers like this. All this is happening in our name, in the name of our God. I feel disgusted. This is the result of not giving punishment. We are making ourselves monsters. Ismat you stay strong. I am sorry for the situation you are going through.
