The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted interim relief to former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma from arrest till August 10 in cases over her controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad.

The court also protected her from coercive action in any future FIRs/complaints which may be registered for her remarks on Prophet Muhammad.

Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma cannot be arrested in the cases filed against her for her comments on Prophet Muhammad, the Supreme Court said.

The Supreme Court will take up Nupur Sharma’s request to club all nine FIRs against her on next hearing in the case on August 10.

Before this, the Supreme Court has asked nine states Delhi, Maharashtra, Telengana, West Bengal, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Assam to respond to her request to club multiple FIRs against the suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma.

Appearing for Sharma, Senior advocate Maninder Singh said the Supreme Court’s earlier order asking former BJP leaders to approach High Courts for relief on FIRs would be difficult as death threats have been made against the suspended BJP leader.

Observing that it never wanted Sharma to visit every court for relief, the division bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala issued notices to the Centre and several states where FIRs have been registered against Sharma.

Earlier on July 1, the same bench of the top court had severely criticised Sharma for her controversial comments against the Prophet.

Her loose tongue had set the entire country on fire. She is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country, the bench had said.

Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Muhammad had created an uproar that led to the protests by Muslim groups and FIRs across the country, besides causing a diplomatic fallout with several Gulf nations registering their official protest against India.

Soon after, the BJP had suspended its spokesperson Nupur Sharma and BJPs Delhi media head Naveen Jindal over backlash from Gulf nations.

The central government on Tuesday night announced a ban of 5-years on the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliated organizations. The ban comes to light after a nationwide crackdown on the PFI and its associated by the investigative agencies which was carried out in the span of 2 weeks and resulted in 247 arrests so far.

The Central government in their declaration informed that PFI and its associates have been banned under the Unlawful Activities (prevention) act (UAPA). The center also cited that the political organization has been linked with the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), Jamat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), and the Islamic State (ISIS).

The Home Ministry in their issued statement added that the PFI has been pursuing a secret agenda to radicalize a sect of the society and added that the organization and its affiliates have the potential to disturb the peace and communal harmony by jeopardizing the integrity, sovereignty, and security of the country.

Throughout the Nationwide raids on PFI and its affiliates, in a collaborative effort by the NIA and ED and the administration were able to cover 15 states which led to 100 arrests on 22 September. Whereas, in the second round, 27 of September, the toll of arrests tallied up to 247 arrests according to the reports.

The affiliated organizations which are banned for 5 years include Rehab India Foundation (RIF), Campus Front of India (CF), All India Imams Council (AIIC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organisation (NCHRO), National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala.

The decision to ban the organization and its affiliates was considered based on the investigative agency’s reports. The ban was also implemented after considering the recommendations from three states, Karnataka, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh.

Many BJP leaders have celebrated and welcomed the step taken by the central government as Delhi BJP leader, Kapil Mishra, came forward and wrote on his Twitter that banning PFI is a pivotal step to stop Islamic Jihad.

However, Congress party’s MP Kodikunnil Suresh scrutinized the center’s ban on PFI and added that it is not the solution and further remarked that the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh is also a counterpart to the threat of harmony as the RSS is also spreading Hindu communalism throughout the country. Why is RSS not being subjected to such bans asked Congress leader.

AU Protest

Amid the ongoing protests against 400% fee hike in Allahabad University, a group of students on Tuesday attempted to take Bhu Samadhi as policemen jostle to break the protest, which is continued in the university for the last two weeks.

A video of student protesters’ tussle with police officials is doing rounds on social media. In the video, the police officials can see attempting to arrest a protester while the student protesters resisting against the police action.

This came a day after a group of students locked the university gate to save student protesters from police crackdown, forcing many students to return without attending classes. Meanwhile, the police broke the lock put up by the students at the university gate.

On the same day, former UP cadre IPS officer Amitabh Thakur also extended his support to the Allahabad University students protesting against the 400% fee hike, calling the move unfair and undemocratic.

The students of Allahabad University have been protesting against the 400% hike in their fees for the past three weeks.

Expressing his disappointment over the police crackdown on protesting students, Thakur on Monday said 400% hike is not only undemocratic but also very sad for the poor and weaker sections of the society. Today, the students are being stopped from participating in protests. This is an anarchic situation, he told reporters.

On Monday, Richa Singh, former president of Allahabad University students union, said the protest against the 400 per cent fee hike will continue until it is rolled back. Today, when the inmates of the girls’ hostel were coming out from the hostel, the main gate (of the hostel) was closed on the orders of the vice chancellor, she said.

Some students of the university had put a lock on the gate of the university, which was opened with the help of the police. Strict action will be initiated against those students, who are creating obstructions like this, the city SP Santosh Kumar Meena said.
