New Delhi: The Supreme Court has lashed out at Nupur Sharma for her remarks about the Prophet that caused a significant uproar. The top court said that Nupur must publicly apologise to the entire country for her act.
While hearing the plea of Nupur Sharma seeking the transfer of all the FIRs registered against her in many states for alleged remarks on the Prophet to Delhi for investigation, the SC said that she has “threatened the security of the nation”.
The bench stated, “This petition demonstrates her thinking that a presence in a magistrate’s court is not meaningful.” Such claims cannot be made by a spokesman. People who have a lot of power occasionally believe they are everything. Why didn’t she bring a lawsuit against those who provoked her?
Senior Advocate Maninder Singh, who is appearing for Nupur Sharma, said that she apologised for her remarks and withdrew the comments. To this, the SC bench replied that “she should have gone to the TV and apologised to the nation.” She was too late to withdraw. These are not religious people at all; they make statements to provoke. “
Advocate Singh tried to explain to the bench as to under what circumstances Nupur Sharma made the comments.
The bench said, “In a democracy, grass has to grow and the donkey has the right to eat.” But that doesn’t mean you can say whatever you want. There has to be some control. “
