Why was Nupur Sharma suspended?
Nupur Sharma, who appeared on a TV show in May 2022, had made objectionable remarks against Prophet Mohammad. She had to face huge opposition after which she was suspended from the Bharatiya Janata Party. She had filed a complaint of receiving death threats to the Delhi Police. Since then, she had distanced herself from public programmes. Her last post on X, formerly Twitter, was on June 5, 2022, in which she withdrew her statement unconditionally.
Her remarks on Prophet drew objections by many Islamic countries around the world.
