SC view on Nupur: Law minister says he could have a “serious objection”

Law minister Kiren Rijiju

A day after the Supreme Court used hard words against Nupur Sharma for her remarks on Prophet Muhammad, Union law minister Kiren Rijiju hinted that he had could have a “serious objection” on the apex court’s observations. 

“I will discuss the issue at an appropriate platform. Even if I do not like the judgement or I have a serious objection to the manner in which the observations are made, I would not like to comment,” stated the minister while speaking to ANI in Hyderabad where he was attending the BJP national executive meeting. 

“First of all, as a Law Minister, it is not proper for me to comment on the judgement as well as the observation made by the Supreme Court bench,” said Rijiju. 

Talking about the issue, the Union Law Minister further said, “Reactions are coming, I am getting lots of representations and messages to react on this, but we will discuss the issue at the appropriate forum.”

The bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala said Nupur Sharma’s “loose tongue” had caused the trouble and that she was “single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country and she should “apologize to the whole country.”

The two judges apparently were carried away to the extent that referring to the Udaipur beheading incident, it said “her outburst is responsible for an unfortunate incident.”

The apex court also declined Sharma’s request to transfer to Delhi of all the FIRs registered against her across the country for her controversial remarks on Prophet and allowed her to withdraw her plea from the top court and avail alternate remedies.
