Seeking protection from arrest, Nupur Sharma has again moved Supreme Court

New Delhi: Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma on Monday moved Supreme Court again claiming that threat to life has been increased more after the top court’s criticism for her remarks on Prophet Mohammad.

On July 1, hearing Sharma’s plea, the apex court had slammed ousted BJP leader Nupur Sharma and said her comments led to the Udaipur beheading incident. The apex court had also said she should apologise to the nation for her comments against Prophet Mohammed.

Justice Surya Kant had said, “We saw the debate on how she was incited. But the way she said all this and later says she was a lawyer it is shameful. She should apologise to the whole country.” The bench had added, “Nupur Sharma single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country.”

The Supreme Court had also slammed the TV channel that held the debate where Nupur Sharma made the comments and Delhi Police for its purported inaction. “What has Delhi police done? Don’t make us open our mouth? What was the TV debate for? Only fan an agenda? Why did they choose a subjudice topic?” the bench had asked.

Earlier, the BJP had suspended its national spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal from the primary membership of the party following their derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad and Islam. The development had come a day after an incident of stone pelting and communal clashes were reported in Kanpur during the visit of Prime Minister.
