Nupur Sharma should apologise over her remarks: Indian SC
July 01, 2022

In India, the Supreme Court has rebuked the former spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party Nupur Sharma for her blasphemous remarks on Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Khatam-ul-Nabiyeen Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam saying her loose tongue has set the entire country on fire.

The court also asked her to appear on a TV channel and apologize to the nation.

The judge was hearing Sharma's petition seeking to club different investigations ongoing against her in several parts of the country.

Her blasphemous remarks in a TV debate had sparked violence in some parts of the country and also led to Islamic nations registering strong protests with India.

Her lawyer told the court that she has apologized and withdrawn her comments.

The court also said being a spokesperson of a party does not give a license to say anything hurtful.
