Shops closed in Hyderabad, In response to Nupur Sharma’s comments

Commercial establishments across the country took down shutters as a form of protest against the blasphemous remarks made by Nupur Sharma, an ex-BJP spokesperson.

To register a protest, shops at Jagdish market, Troop Bazaar, Jambagh and Abids were closed in the evening.

Despite Hyderabad being a bustling city, there was a lot of protest and slogans calling for Nupur Sharma’s arrest. Throughout the busy business hub and heart of the city, all shops were closed to protest disrespect against Prophet Muhammad.

In addition, shop owners affixed posters to their shutters that read, “We Protest against the disrespect of our beloved Prophet Muhammad.”.

Nupur Sharma, then a spokesperson for the ruling BJP, commented on Prophet Muhammad during a television debate at the end of May, causing a widespread uproar around the world. India was slammed over the comments made in the debate by at least 14 nations, including Qatar, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal have been suspended from the BJP in an attempt to limit the damage. Jindal said that his tweet was not intended to hurt any religious sentiments but to ask those attacking Hindu deities.

According to Maharashtra Home Department sources, Nupur Sharma who made comments about the Prophet that led to global outrage is untraceable, and the Mumbai Police is looking for her in Delhi.
