Ahmedabad-based Nare Gaurav Suraksha Samiti on Sunday voiced support for Nupur Sharma who has been suspended from the position of BJP spokesperson for her remarks against the Prophet and the Muslim community.
Nari Gaurav Suraksha Samiti, the meeting coordinator, Rathvi Patel, stated that since the police authorization for a rally in support of Nupur Sharma was refused, a small rally was held to demand action against all those who issued threats against her.
“The way a lady receives overt threats, including rape, is by no means justified. Nupur Sharma has already unconditionally apologized for her statements, and the FIR has also been registered against her. So, that is bias now. As a society Civilized, we need to wait for the law to take its course. However, people are calling them threats.”
Former IPS officer, DG Vanzara, who was also present at the event, also condemned the threats and statements from the citizens against Sharma.

Patel demanded action against all those who make threats, saying, “In the future, we want to take action against all those who make threats not only against Nupur but against any other woman. Overt rape threats should not be tolerated and allowed in society. We will force the administration to lift Legal suits against all of them within the next two days.”
