Expressing astonishment at the conversation that had surfaced in a clipping on social media, DCW President Swati Maliwal said, “Someone tagged me in this detailed audio conversation on the Clubhouse app on Twitter, in which Muslim women and girls are being targeted and killed. Offensive and lewd remarks were being made against him.
In the statement, Maliwal said, ‘I am angry that such incidents are increasing in the country. There is a need to take strict action against the culprits, so I have issued a notice to Delhi Police asking them to immediately register an FIR in the matter and arrest them.
Clubhouse is an audio social media app where chat sessions are held where people can create groups to discuss and share.
This controversial audio clip of clubhouse chat is viral on social media, due to which strict action is being demanded against the culprits.
The incident comes amid the ongoing crackdown on a bully bye app that targeted Muslim women of all age groups, including journalists, lawyers and activists, and was being auctioned online.
A similar ‘auction’ had also surfaced in the Sully Deals app case last year. Such targeting of Muslim women has been strongly criticized by journalists and intellectuals.
