NEW DELHI:The Supreme Court of India on Friday rebuked Nupur Sharma, the spokeswoman of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), for making controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) that have led to anger in the Muslim community in India and abroad.

The apex court refused to grant relief to the suspended BJP leader for transferring all FIRs (First Information Reports) registered against her across the country to Delhi. She promptly withdrew her plea from the Supreme Court.

The Court said: “When you lodge a complaint against someone, that person is arrested. But nobody dares to touch you. That shows your clout.”

Hearing her plea, the Supreme Court said that she has “threatened the security of the nation and must apologise.”Nupur Sharma had moved SC seeking a transfer of all the FIRs registered against her, across several states over her controversial remark, to Delhi for investigation. Sharma said she is constantly facing life threats.

The Supreme Court slammed the woman, and said she should apologise to the whole country. It said: “You and your loose tongue have set the entire country on fire.”

The apex court further said her outburst is responsible for the unfortunate incident at Udaipur, where a tailor was murdered.

The court asked: “What is the business of the TV channel and Nupur Sharma to discuss the matter which is sub-judice, except to promote an agenda?”Appearing for Nupur Sharma, Senior advocate Maninder Singh told the Supreme Court that Nupur Sharma had apologised for the remarks and withdrew the comments.Responding to this, the Supreme Court said that she should have gone to the TV and apologized to the nation.
