“Looking at the young age of the accused in the BulliBaiApp case, the entire country is asking where does so much hatred come from. In fact, BJP has set up many factories of hate. Tek Fog is one of them,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
He tagged a report that said Tek Fog’ is BJP’s helpful app that has given the power to the cyber army’ to spread hatred and tinker with the trends on social media.
The Congress has already demanded answers from the government over the app and asked the Supreme Court to intervene.
In the Bulli Bai’ case, doctored photographs of hundreds of Muslim women were uploaded for auction’ on an app called Bulli Bai’, hosted on open-source software platform GitHub.
Media houses come out with investigation with evidence of a connection between BJYM and the App,
However Devang Dave, the former National Social Media and IT Head of BJYM, who is also the election manager of BJP in Maharashtra, has denied the news.
The report also suggested the role of a technology services company named Persistent Systems in running the App. However the company has refused to make any comments
Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’ Brien wrote to the Parliamentary Committee on Home Affairs about the App, saying that the App can pose a grave threat to the country’s security,
