There were only a few celebrities who have reacted to Nupur Sharma’s alleged comment on the Prophet Muhammad row. One such is Swara Bhasker, who has been voicing her opinion on social media about the same. Recently, the actress took to her Instagram to slam former cricketer and politician Gautam Gambhir.
Nupur Sharma Row
The former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s recent remark on Prophet Muhammad has been making the headlines. Her statement angered the Muslim community and they started slamming her for this. Amid all these, Nupur Sharma got suspended from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
This did not end here. People went out on the streets and started massive protests against Nupur Sharma and she even obtained rape and death threats. Violent protests have also been carried out in different parts of the country ordering the arrest of Nupur Sharma. However, after the protests turned a bit violent, police started taking action against them and the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath took some serious steps against the protest.
