The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petition filed by expelled BJP leader Nupur Sharma, seeking transfer of around 12 FIRs, which were registered against her in many states for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Prophet Hazrat Muhammad, to Delhi for investigation.

The Vacation Bench, headed by Justice Surya Kant, came down heavily on Sharma, stating that her outbursts were responsible for the unfortunate incident at Udaipur.

It said, “The way she has ignited emotions across the country… This lady is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country.

“What is the business of the TV channel to discuss the matter which is sub-judice, except to promote an agenda?,” observed Justice Kant.

Sharma said she was constantly facing rape and life threats from unsocial elements, despite withdrawing her comments and pleaded with the Apex Court that it would not be safe for her to travel to different states for investigations by concerned police.

Senior Advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for Nupur Sharma, said that she has apologised for remarks and withdrew the comments.

To this, the Court remarked, “She should have gone to the TV and apologised to the nation. She was too late to withdraw, and too, she withdraws conditionally, saying if sentiments hurt.

“These are not religious people at all, they make statements to provoke. The petition smacks of her arrogance, that the Magistrates of the country are too small for her,” it added.

Singh referred to the orders passed by the Apex Court in Arnab Goswami case, where the relief of clubbing FIRs was granted by the Apex Court.

However, the Court told her to withdraw the petition and dismissed the plea as withdrawn.
