Nupur Sharma Controversy

On 27 May 2022, Sharma participated in a debate on the Gyanvapi Mosque dispute on the Times Now channel, during which she commented that the Islamic prophet Muhammad married a six-year-old bride (Aisha) and had sex with her when her age was nine years.

The Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair shared a video clip of her remarks on social media. Sharma later alleged that it was a “heavily edited and selected video”, which was denied by Pratik Sinha, the other co-founder of Alt News. Sinha stated that it was unedited and also included a longer clip which showed the context.

Sharma stated that she had started receiving rape and death threats. She appeared to hold Zubair responsible for the threats. Alt News denied any responsibility for the reaction the viewers after watching the video clip.

Sharma’s comments were widely shared internationally on social media. By 4 June, “insult to Prophet Mohammed” was trending among the top 10 hashtags in all the countries of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Turkey. 

The Grand Mufti of Oman called the remarks “insolent and obscene rudeness” by the official spokesperson of BJP and characterized it as war against every Muslim. He called for a boycott of all Indian products and confiscation of all Indian investments in Oman. 

The Government of Qatar summoned the Indian ambassador and asked for immediate condemnation and an apology for the remarks. The ambassador is reported to have replied that these were the views of “fringe elements” in India and in no way reflect the views of the Government of India. Kuwait and Iran have also summoned the Indian envoys and gave them protest notes.
