As if the India’s ruling party BJP’s (Bharatiya Janata Party) National Spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s life and the lives of her family aren’t in enough peril following thousands of death threats from Muslims, now Muslims are calling for her to be hanged as well as violent jihad against all Hindus.
All Sharma did in a TV debate was point out that Prophet Muhammad, at age 54, had married six-year-old Aisha, and he had consummated his marriage when she was just 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).
For some reason, Muslims find this truth to be offensive.
Though the Indian media did not cover the incident widely or reprint the inflammatory comment, videos of her statement went viral on social media and sparked angry protests around the world.
But Sharma remained defiant, boasting in interviews about how BJP leader and federal Home Minister Amit Shah had called her to express his support. She also got the backing of anti-Islam Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who said in a tweet: “Don’t listen to the hypocrites. Islamic nations had no freedom and persecuted minorities and they should be criticized.”
