The controversy over remarks made by Nupur Sharma, now suspended member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Prophet Muhammad refuses to die down.
While there are many such as All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi demanding for the BJP leader’s arrest, some have come out and extended their support to Sharma and condemned the threats issued against her.
On Sunday, AIMIM’s Owaisi was quoted as saying by news agency PTI, “Nupur Sharma is not being arrested. As per the law, she should be arrested. She has not been arrested for so many days. Why don’t you arrest her and take legal action against her? Who is stopping you?”
