Digvijay Singh also took a jibe at CM Yogi on the pretext of Nupur
At the same time, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh tweeted and said, “The Government of India describes the statements of two BJP spokespersons as ‘fringe elements’. Who appointed him as the official spokesperson of BJP? Will the BJP president accept the responsibility of appointing ‘fringe elements’ as spokesperson and publicly apologize? Now what about registering criminal cases against two suspended and expelled BJP leaders? Shouldn’t UP Police register a case against them? Yogi Adityanath But also taunted. Digvijay Singh wrote, “Isn’t speaking against any religion an offense under the law? UP Police will not register a case, because in that definition CM UP can also fall under the category of ‘fringe element’.
Isn’t speaking against any Religion a crime under the Law? UP Police won’t file any case. Why?
Because in that definition CM UP may also come under the “Fringe Element” category!!@INCIndia @PMOIndia @dgpup

BJP sent to jail under strict laws- Mayawati
At the same time, Bahujan Samaj Party Chief Mayawati said, “It is necessary to respect all religions in the country. The use of offensive language for any religion is not appropriate. In this matter, BJP should also strictly tighten the noose on its people. Only suspending and expelling them will not work, but they should be sent to jail under strict laws. Not only this, it is very important to get to the bottom of the violence that has happened in Kanpur recently. Also, innocent people should not be harassed in the police action against this violence, this is also the demand of BSP.
What did BJP say?
In a letter to Nupur Sharma, BJP Central Disciplinary Committee member secretary Om Pathak said, “You have expressed contrary views of the party’s position on various matters, which is a clear violation of Rule 10(a) of the party’s constitution. It is directed to state that pending further investigation, you are hereby suspended from the party and from your responsibilities/actions with immediate effect.
Nupur issued a statement and apologized
However, after this Nupur Sharma issued a statement on Twitter and apologized for commenting on Prophet Muhammad. Nupur wrote, “I was going on TV debates for the past several days, where my adorable Shiva ji was being insulted every day. It was being said in front of me that it is a fountain, not a Shivling. Many Shivlings are found on every footpath of Delhi. Go go and worship. I could not bear the insult of our Mahadev Shiva ji like this again and again in front of me and I said some things in anger. If my words have hurt anyone’s religious sentiments, then I take back my words. It was never my intention to hurt anyone.
