No Arrest For Nupur Sharma, We Need To Protect Her

The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted protection to suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma from any coercive action in FIRs and complaints registered in connection to her comments on Prophet Mohammad.

Nupur argued that Supreme Court’s verdict has further endangered her life.

Stating that it will correct to a small extent its earlier ruling on Sharma's petition seeking protection from arrest and clubbing of nine FIRs against her, a bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala said, “We never wanted you to go to every court.”

The court also issued notices to the Union government and states like Delhi, West Bengal and Maharashtra on her petition for clubbing of the FIRs. The case will be heard next on August 10. Sharma had also sought expunction of adverse remarks made against her on July 1 while refusing to entertain her plea for clubbing of the FIRs, saying she has been receiving death threats after the criticism.

Multiple FIRs have been filed against her for her controversial comments on Prophet Mohammad made on national television. While refusing to entertain her plea, the bench had said Sharma's remarks led to unfortunate incidents and ignited emotions across the country.
