An India-based YouTube channel ‘Liberal Doge’ streamed a live video on Thursday, 13 May, sexualising and posting misogynistic comments on the Eid ul-Fitr photos of Pakistani women. According to multiple social media handles, the channel is run by a man named Ritesh Jha.

Something as normal as posting a celebratory photo was made into an anti-women slugfest – with men ‘rating’ women, commenting on their ‘looks’, and even going to the extent of ‘auctioning'.

“Today, we will stalk women with our eyes filled with lust,” the YouTube description of the video read in Hindi.

The video has been made private on YouTube after people took to other social media platforms to call them out. Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur Police tweeted that the Cyber Cell has been directed for information and legal action against the YouTube channel.

Indian women, too, were not left behind in the vitriolic attack. Twitter handles placed ‘bids’ on the Congress Party’s national coordinator for social media Hasiba Amin – and was ‘sold’ to @PinakShiv3 handle.

Amin has reportedly filed an online complaint with the Delhi Police’s Cyber Cell.
