For his part, Thakur’s brother, Mangaleshwar, stressed that the young man had “no reason to engage in this activity” and added that he is “being falsely accused for those who have already been detained. “

The GitHub platform, owned by Microsoft, blocked both apps.

The words ‘sulli’ and ‘bulli’ are apparently slang terms used to disparagingly refer to women who profess Islam.
