Who is raising questions on Supreme Court comments on Nupur Sharma?

The Supreme Court has strongly reprimanded former BJP spokesman Nupur Sharma. The Supreme Court, while hearing Nupur Sharma’s request, said Sharma’s statement sparked riots across the country.

Now netizens are pointing out that the words of the Supreme Court of India are similar to those of a Sharia Court questioning freedom of expression. Under the hashtag that is trending on Twitter #SupremeCourtIsCompromised, thousands of people criticize the sentence issued by Judge Surya Kant. They also point out that he had previously withdrawn from the statement and apologized.

In a scathing attack on suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma, the Supreme Court on Friday asked Nupur Sharma to apologize to “the entire country” for his comments about Islamic leader Mohammed. The court noted that she is “single-handedly responsible” for what is happening in the country.

Suspended BJP Nupur Sharma had applied in the High Court to move all FIRs registered against her in different states of the country to Delhi in the Prophet controversy. During the hearing of her petition, the High Court found Nupur Sharma’s statements to be ‘responsible’ for the unfortunate incident in Udaipur.

A holiday bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala refused to consider Sharma’s statement, asking him to approach the High Court. After this, Nupur Sharma withdrew her application from the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court, during its hearing, termed Nupur Sharma’s remarks as “painful” and asked- “What was the need for her to make such a statement?”

During the hearing, the Supreme Court also asked that apart from running the agenda of a TV channel, what was the purpose of debating a matter which is already under the court.

The Supreme Court questioned Nupur Sharma’s rhetoric and said, “If you are a spokesperson of a party, then you do not have the license to make such statements.”

Senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for Nupur Sharma, said that his client has immediately withdrawn her statement and apologized for the same.

On this, the Supreme Court expressed its displeasure and said that he should have gone on TV and apologized to the whole country.

The Supreme Court told Nupur Sharma’s lawyer, “She took too long and withdrew the statement conditionally. She (Nupur) said that if someone’s feelings were hurt, she apologizes.”

The Supreme Court said, “The way Nupur Sharma instigated sentiments across the country, she is the only one responsible for whatever is happening in the country.”

Expressing displeasure over even filing the application in the Supreme Court, the apex court said, “This petition shows his arrogance, it seems that the magistrates of the country are too small for him.”

The court also told Nupur Sharma’s lawyer, “When there is an FIR against you and you are not arrested, it shows your reach. They think there are people behind them and they keep making irresponsible statements.”

Nupur Sharma’s lawyer sought permission from the court to withdraw her petition and also assured that “Nupur will not go anywhere and will cooperate fully with the agency whenever called for an investigation.”
