‘You and your loose tongue set the nation on fire’, SC slams Nupur Sharma
While hearing the plea of Nupur Sharma the Supreme Court on Friday observed that she must apologize to the whole country for the remarks made against Prophet Mohammad. SC further said that she and her loose tongue has set the entire country on fire. Nupur Sharma has been suspended by the BJP for making the remark.
Nupur Sharma has moved to the apex court seeking the transfer of all the FIRs registered against her, across several states over her remark, to Delhi for investigation. She also said that she is constantly facing life threats from the extremists.
SC also added that her outburst is responsible for the unfortunate incident at Udaipur, where a tailor was brutally murdered.
The bench said, “This petition shows her thinking that a magistrate’s court is not worth her appearance. A spokesperson can’t make such statements. Sometimes the power goes into the heads of people and they think they are everything. Why didn’t she file a case against the ones who instigated her to make these statements?”
Terming her as a complete ‘loose tongue‘, the Supreme Court said, “she makes all irresponsible statements and claims to be a lawyer of 10 years standing. She should be apologizing to the whole country.”
“Her outburst is responsible for the unfortunate incident at Udaipur,” the court further underlined, referring to the beheading of a tailor in the Rajasthan district earlier this week, which had sparked huge tensions. Strict curbs are still placed in Udaipur, which has been a popular tourist destination among tourists in India and abroad.
The court has refused her relief and said, “When you lodge a complaint against someone that person is arrested but nobody dares to touch you. That shows your clout.” Fact-checker Mohammad Zubair – who had highlighted Sharma’s comments on Prophet – was arrested by the Delhi Police on Monday over a tweet he had posted in 2018.
Nupur Sharma’s lawyer Maninder Singh told the court that she had apologized to the country for the remarks and withdrew her comments against the Prophet. “She should have gone to the TV and apologized to the nation,” the court said in response.
