Mumbai Police chief Sanjay Pandey has said that they are all set to summon suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma and record her statement, in connection with her alleged comments against Prophet Mohammed during a news debate on the Gyanvapi issue.




Earlier, on June 5, BJP had suspended Nupur and expelled its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal as the row over their alleged derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed escalated with protests from some Arab countries.

Amid demonstrations by Muslim groups and the sharp reaction from countries like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Qatar, and Iran, the BJP issued a statement asserting that it respects all religions and strongly denounces insults of any religious personality.
