Suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma should "Apologize to the country": supreme court

The Supreme Court today accused the suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma of igniting tensions in her comments on the Prophet Muhammad and said he should “apologize nationwide.”

“The way she ignited emotions across the country. This woman is solely responsible for what is happening in the country,” the judge said.

Nupur Sharma’s unpleasant comments made earlier this month in a television debate sparked massive protests in India, with some Gulf nations summoning Indian diplomats to blame them.

“I saw a debate about how she was instigated, but it’s shameful how she said all this and later she was a lawyer. She must apologize nationwide.” Judge Slya Kant said.

Nupur Sharma requested the court to transfer multiple FIRs submitted to her nationwide to Delhi because of intimidation. But she withdrew her petition.
