The Supreme Court on Friday came down heavily on former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, who allegedly made remarks against Prophet Mohammad in a televised debate, saying she was single-handedly responsible for the ensuing protests and should have apologised to the nation.

‘The way she has ignited emotions across the country… This lady is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country,’ says Bench.

Ms Sharma had approached the Supreme Court to club the multiple FIRs registered across the country.

The court refused to entertain her plea, saying that the “conscience of the court is not satisfied”, following which Ms Sharma withdrew her petition.

The court said Ms Sharma’s comments were “disturbing”.

“What is her business to make these remarks?” the Bench asked her lawyer, senior advocate Maninder Singh.

The court lashed out when Mr Singh said his client had apologised, the court said he should have gone back on air and apologised to the nation.

“She was too late to withdraw…and that too, she withdrew her comments conditionally, saying ‘if sentiments hurt’ “, Supreme Court remarked.

“The petition [to club the FIRs] smacks of her arrogance, that the Magistrates of the country are too small for her… If you are a spokesperson of a party, it is not a licence to say things like this. If there is a misuse of the debate, the first thing she should have done was to file an FIR against the anchor”, the court said.
