Hyderabad: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday urged the BJP to "look into" what the Supreme Court said about party's former spokesperson Nupur Sharma today and demanded her arrest over controversial comments on Prophet Muhammad.

While speaking to media, he said, "We demand to PM Modi that Nupur Sharma must be arrested, and let the law takes its own course. Why is BJP protecting her?"

"BJP took credit for Gujarat clean chit by the SC, now they must look into what SC said about Nupur Sharma as well," he added.

A Supreme Court bench heavily criticised Sharma for her comments, saying her "loose tongue" has "set the entire country on fire" and that she is "single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the

"She actually has a loose tongue and has made all kinds of irresponsible statements on TV and set the entire country on fire. Yet, she claims to be a lawyer of 10 years standing... She should have immediately apologised for her comments to the whole country," the court said.

Sharma's remark against the Prophet, made during a TV debate, triggered protests across the country and invited sharp reactions from many Gulf countries. The BJP subsequently suspended her from the party.
