  • The Supreme Court on Friday came down heavily on former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma over her Prophet remark. The top court said "her loose tongue" has "set the entire country on fire" and asked her to apologise to the nation for her remarks. While hearing a plea filed by Nupur Sharma seeking transfer of all FIRs related to her remarks to Delhi, the Supreme Court said, "She actually has a loose tongue and has made all kinds of irresponsible statements on TV and set the entire country on fire. Yet, she claims to be a lawyer of 10 years standing. She should have immediately apologised for her comments to the whole country." The court refused to entertain her plea and said she has "threatened the security of the nation". "This statement by Nupur Sharma is responsible for the unfortunate killing in Udaipur," Justice Pardiwala said, referring to the beheading of a Hindu man by two men over a social media post supporting Nupur Sharma. The court also said that her remarks against Prophet Muhammad were made either for "cheap publicity, a political agenda or for some nefarious activities". "She has a threat or she has become a security threat? The way she has ignited emotions across the country. This lady is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country," the court added.
