The Supreme Court on Friday slammed suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma for making controversial remarks against Prophet Mohammad. The Supreme Court said that his cause led to unfortunate incidents across the country and it stirred the sentiments of the people. Opposition parties have become attackers on BJP after the Supreme Court’s remarks about Nupur Sharma. Now AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has targeted BJP on this matter. Owaisi said, BJP talks so much on clean chit of Gujarat, then what will it say on today’s decision.
Owaisi said, ‘I demand from the Prime Minister that Nupur Sharma should be arrested. Why is he being saved when an FIR has been registered against him? Why BJP and Modi have made this issue an issue of prestige. For how long will PM Narendra Modi remain silent on this issue? Let the law take its course. One must pay attention to what the judges of the Supreme Court have said today.
Saving one woman, destroying another’s house
Owaisi said that Nupur Sharma is a member of the BJP’s national executive in Hyderabad. She is still a member of the party’s national executive. You are saving Nupur Sharma and on the other hand you are arresting Zubair. One is saving a woman and on the other hand a house which is in the name of a woman is demolished.

should apologize to the whole country
The Supreme Court said that Sharma made the remarks against the Prophet either to get cheap publicity or as part of some political agenda or some hateful activity. He said that he should apologize to the whole country. Sharma’s remarks against the Prophet during a debate on the news channel had led to protests across the country and drew sharp reactions from several Gulf countries. The BJP later suspended Sharma from the party.
What did the court do on Sharma’s remarks?
During the hearing, the court said, “These statements are very disturbing and they smell of arrogance.” What does he mean by making such a statement? These statements have led to unfortunate incidents in the country… These people are not religious. They do not respect other religions. These comments were made either to get cheap publicity or as part of some political agenda or hateful activity.
