BJP leader Nupur Sharma was on Sunday suspended from the party’s primary membership for her remarks over Prophet Muhammad in a recent television interview. Delhi BJP leader Naveen Kumar was also suspended from the party’s primary membership.
Amid a row over remarks of BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, party general secretary Arun Singh said in a statement that the party is strongly against any ideology which insults or demeans any sect or religion. “The BJP does not promote such people or philosophy,” he said.
The BJP statement, however, made no direct mention of any incident or comment.
