New Delhi, July 18 Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma filed a new application in the Supreme Court of India to revive her withdrawn writ petition. On July 1 she had withdrawn her petition to club the multiple FIRs registered against her in different parts of the country, including Hyderabad. The FIRs were registered after Sharma’s ‘blasphemous’ remarks on Prophet Muhammad drew attention on an international scale. On July 1, a vacation bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and J B Pardiwala minced no words in criticizing Sharma for making irresponsible remarks and castigated her for her arrogance. Citing her remarks, the bench said, “It is so disturbing… the outcome is what happened at Udaipur… please do not compel us to open our mouth”, the bench told Sharma’s lawyer. Nupur Sharma submitted that she tendered an apology immediately, and cited various top court judgments where clubbing of multiple FIRs was ordered for the same alleged offense. However, the bench remained unconvinced and Sharma had to withdraw the plea from the apex court. In a TV debate conducted by Times Now Group Editor Navika Kumar, the BJP spokesperson made insulting statements against the Prophet. There was instant condemnation against her but the BJP took no steps to correct the same.
