India’s ruling party, BJP, has suspended Nupur Sharma, who has been receiving death threats from outraged, overly sensitive Muslims for simply stating a fact: ‘The Prophet Muhammad married a 6-year-old child when he was 54.’ Sharma has been at the receiving end of the virulent hatred and death threats from Muslim extremists and ‘far-left-secular’ journalists for expressing her views on the ‘paedophile’ behavior of the Prophet Muhammad.
OpIndia (h/t LH) On June 5, Bharatiya Janata Party suspended National Spokesperson Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal from the party’s primary membership. The development came after a recent press release issued by the party. The party respects all religions and is against any ideology that insults or demeans any sect or religion.
In its suspension letter, the BJP told Sharma that she has expressed views contrary to the party’s on various matters which violate the party’s constitution.
Yet Sharma simply spoke the truth. According to OpIndia on May 28, 2022, “she pointed out that Prophet Muhammad, at age 54, had married six-year-old Aisha, and he had consummated his marriage when she was nine years old.” Even the Islamic Hadiths confirm this:
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).
During the debate on Times Now on the disputed Gyanvapi structure, Nupur Sharma argued that since people are mocking the Hindu faith repeatedly, then they can also mock other religions referring to Islamic beliefs. Taking that video out of context, Zubair shared it with his 464,000 Twitter followers declaring Nupur a rabid communal hatemonger and someone who can incite riots.
OpIndiaHours after Alt News ‘fact checker’ Mohammed Zubair unleashed his troll army on Nupur Sharma, the BJP spokesperson started receiving death threats on the micro-blogging platform.
The national spokesperson for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and a leader of the party’s Delhi unit, Nupur Sharma has been receiving multiple death threats on the social media platform Twitter. There were multiple tweets threatening her, some even calling for her beheading after Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair shared her video with a twisted commentary to encourage trolls to attack her.
Sharing the threats, Nupur tweeted:
In the tweets attached by Nupur, there are open threats to her life. Even though she has shared only 4 tweets, there are several similar tweets against her ever since Zubair’s dog-whistling encouraging attacks against her.
The dog-whistling against Nupur Sharma was first initiated by alleged fact-checker Mohammed Zubair, who shared an edited version of the video to drive a hate campaign against her. Other Muslim extremists, masquerading as journalists, also came out of the woodwork to incite violence against the BJP spokesperson.
A snippet of one such disturbing discussion about ‘killing’ Sharma was recently conducted by Islamists on a Twitter space titled, ‘Democracy, Freedom of Speech and Blasphemy.’ A screen recording of the same was shared by a Twitter user named ‘Anti Hypocrisy.’
At the very onset, a Muslim could be heard lamenting that there is no punishment for ‘blasphemy’ in India and how it encourages ‘them’ (Hindus) to allegedly mock the Islamic Faith.
He then went on to cite scholars and fatwas where the killing of the blasphemy accused becomes indispensable, as per Islam. “Take a small example: If a person says that the skin colour of Prophet Muhammad was black, then, the killing of such a person becomes an obligation,” he informed.
He also slammed the ‘moderate’ Muslims for not condoning barbaric punishment for acts of blasphemy. “Even raising your voice in front of the Prophet is a sin, which you may not have realised while committing the act. And you will not even get the opportunity to express regret or seek forgiveness for it,” he concluded how Islam is ‘protective’ about the honour of the last Messenger.
Several Muslim extremists issued death and rape threats to Nupur Sharma, just as they had issued to deceased Kamlesh Tiwari and Kishan Bharwad.
After being tagged repeatedly, Delhi Police finally responded and said that the matter has been forwarded to concerned officials and they will contact the aggrieved party Nupur Sharma shortly.
And the Muslim outrage continues around the world. India has more to offer the Muslim world than Muslims have to offer India. India should tell them to take a hike. and stand up for the truth being told about Islam.
