Former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has tweeted a video of some people beaten up in the lockup, saying that questions must be raised on such a prison; otherwise, justice will lose its credibility. After Nupur Sharma's statement on Prophet Mohammad, protests are coming across the country. On Friday, violence and unrest were seen in many states, including UP. Since then, the UP government has been doing a lot. Now the statements of the opposition leaders have started coming on this matter. From SP President Akhilesh to leaders of other parties, questions have been raised about the police action. At the same time, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party President Om Prakash Rajbhar said that violence in UP could have been avoided if Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal had been arrested earlier. He accused the BJP government of protecting people who made controversial remarks. Rajbhar said that the government should take action against those making controversial remarks and taking the law into their own hands but should not harass the innocent. A.I.M.I.M. chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma should be arrested for controversial remarks.
He said that no one should indulge in violence on this issue, and neither should the police take the law into their own hands. He said that BJP did not act on Nupur in time due to enormous controversy. Now Nupur Sharma is not being arrested. According to the law, he should be stopped. Owaisi said that Nupur Sharma's apology is not enough. We don't need an apology. The law should take its course. Asked about AIMIM's statement from Aurangabad MP Imtiaz Jaleel, Owaisi said the party's stand is clear: Nupur should be arrested as per law. He noted that the party's perspective would have to be followed by everyone. Let us inform you that Jalil had demanded the death penalty for Nupur Sharma. At the same time, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said amid reports of violence that India has always set an example of truth, non-violence, and brotherhood in front of the world.
He said that hatred and unrest are not our way. Rahul further said that Bapu's ideals are the foundation of an independent India. Our country has always set an example of truth, non-violence, and brotherhood in front of the world. Hate and unrest are not our way. It is the countrymen's responsibility to unite India and maintain mutual goodwill. During a TV debate recently, former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma made an alleged derogatory remark on Prophet Mohammad. The party has suspended Nupur. On the other hand, anger did not subside after Nupur's statement, and on Friday, there were protests at many places, and violence broke out. Some policemen were injured in stone-pelting. Security forces had to resort to lathi-charge, tear gas shells, and fire.
