Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma has once again moved the Supreme Court seeking a stay on arrests in connection with the nine FIRs registered against her. Nupur Sharma’s remarks against Prophet Mohammad had sparked a massive controversy and multiple FIRs were registered against her.
A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court stating that after the top court came down heavily on her and held her responsible for whatever is happening in the country, her life has been in danger and she has also received rape threat.
Nupur Sharma has sought clubbing of FIRs registered against her in Delhi as the first complaint was filed there.
Earlier this month, the SC came down heavily on Nupur Sharma over her televised remarks on Prophet Muhammad and said that she is single-handedly responsible for the unrest in the country.
A vacation bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala 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. She is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country.”
The court had also said that Nupur Sharma should have apologised to the nation on national TV.
The BJP had suspended then national spokesperson Nupur Sharma over her controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad during a TV debate.
Soon after, violence broke out in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh in which 40 people, including 20 police personnel, were injured. Violent protests also erupted in several other parts of the country.
Cases have been registered against Nupur Sharma for hurting religious sentiments in Hyderabad, Pune, Delhi, West Bengal and Mumbai.
