Nupur sharma comment on muhammad wikipedia
On 26 May 2022, Sharma participated in a debate on the Gyanvapi Mosque dispute on the Times Now television channel, during which she made controversial remarks regarding the age of Muhammad’s wife Aisha at the time of their marriage and consummation of the marriage, which were seen to be insulting by several Muslim nations. The video clip of her comments were shared by Mohammed Zubair, the co-founder of Alt News, a fact-checking website, on social media. Sharma later alleged that it was a “heavily edited and selected video”, which was denied by Alt News, and included a longer clip to show the context.After the incident drew criticism, Times Now deleted the video of the programme from its YouTube channel the following day. Sharma subsequently stated that she started receiving rape and death threats and Zubair responsible. Alt News denied any responsibility for the reaction from the viewers after watching the video clip. Later Delhi police provided security cover to Sharma.
A police FIR (First Information Report) was registered against Sharma in Mumbai’s Pydhonie police station the next day in which she was accused of “hurting religious sentiments”. A series of FIRs were registered in various towns around the country including one by the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader and parliamentarian Asaduddin Owaisi in Hyderabad, for Sharma’s use of “abusive, false and hurtful” words against Muhammad and Islam. A bandh (shut down) was called by a Muslim organisation in Kanpur to protest the remarks on 3 June, during which violence erupted with 40 people getting injured.
Sharma’s comments were also widely shared internationally on social media. By 4 June, “insult to Prophet Mohammed” was trending among the top 10 hashtags in all the countries of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Turkey. The governments of UAE, Afghanistan, Indonesia and Pakistan condemned the remarks.
The Grand Mufti of Oman called the remarks “insolent and obscene rudeness” and characterised it as war against every Muslim. He called for a boycott of all Indian products and confiscation of all Indian investments in Oman. The Government of Qatar summoned the Indian ambassador and asked for immediate condemnation and an apology for the remarks. The ambassador was reported to have replied that they were views of “fringe elements” in India and in no way reflected the views of the Government of India. Kuwait and Iran have also summoned the Indian envoys and gave them protest notes.
On 5 June, Sharma was suspended from the BJP. The party statement said, “The BJP strongly denounces insults of any religious personalities of any religion.” Afterwards, Sharma said that she was “unconditionally” withdrawing her statement, but also made an attempt to justify them claiming that they were in response to the “continuous insult and disregard” towards the Hindu deity Shiva.
What Nupur Sharma said
Nupur Sharma’s remarks, made in a TV debate in May-end, have incensed Indian Muslims and outraged more than a dozen Islamic nations.
On Thursday, two weeks after her comments, Delhi police said they had opened investigations against Ms Sharma – and a few others – “on the basis of social media analysis against those trying to disrupt public tranquillity and inciting people on divisive lines”.
On Sunday, the BJP suspended Ms Sharma from the party. The head of the party’s Delhi media unit, Naveen Kumar Jindal, was also expelled for sharing a screenshot of her offensive comment in a tweet.
In a statement, the BJP said it was “against any ideology which insults or demeans any sect or religion” and added that it did not “promote such people or philosophy”.
And in an attempt to placate angry Islamic nations, Indian diplomats have said the comments did not reflect the stand of the government and that they were “views of fringe elements”.
