Prophet Row: SC gives Navika Kumar 8 weeks' time to defend herself

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday clubbed together fiRs lodged against journalist Navika Kumar over suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma's controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad and transferred them to Delhi Police. Let me tell you that there was a huge ruckus over the controversial remarks made by the former BJP spokesperson on Prophet Mohammad. Some Hindus were even killed by Islamic fundamentalists.  

Let me tell you that Navika was the presenter of the debate aired on TV, in which Nupur Sharma made a controversial statement. A bench of Justices MR Shah and Krishna Murari said no coercive action will be taken against Navika Kumar for eight weeks so that she can take measures to defend herself in the interim period. It also allowed Navika Kumar to move to the Delhi High Court with a request to quash the main FIR. Delhi Police's Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) unit will investigate the case.

The court had granted interim protection from arrest to Navika on August 8. The bench had issued notices to the Centre, West Bengal government and others on Kumar's plea. After Sharma's remarks on Prophet Mohammad, Muslims across the country staged violent protests and raised provocative slogans of 'Sar Tan Se Juda.' Let me tell you that obscene statements were constantly being made by Muslim panellists about the alleged Shivling found in the Gyanvapi campus, due to which Nupur Sharma reacted and commented on the Prophet. After which Nupur Sharma is still under house arrest, while those who insult the Hindu faith have joined back in the debate and no action has been taken against them.
