During the hearing on Friday, the court said that suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Muhammad created a lot of anger in the Gulf countries which gave rise to protests in the country. For this, she should apologize to the whole country. The top court said that Nupur Sharma should apologize on TV.
The Supreme Court also said that she alone is responsible for what is happening in the country. Justice Surya Kant said, “We saw the debate on how she was incited. But they way she said all this and later says she was a lawyer it is shameful. She should apologise to the whole country.”
In fact, the Supreme Court was hearing Nupur Sharma’s plea in which she had demanded that all FIRs registered against her be transferred to Delhi. Sharma’s lawyer said that she is facing threats. Justice Surya Kant said, “She has threat or she has become security threat? The way she has ignited emotions across the country. This lady is single handedly responsible for what is happening in the country.”
