A petition filed by a lawyer seeking to arrest former BJP Spokesperson Nupur Sharma for her alleged hate statement against the revered Prophet Mohammad on a television debate was mentioned for urgent listing before the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

The petition was mentioned before the vacation bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and JK Maheshwari.

Urging the bench to list the plea, the counsel submitted that a complaint was made to the police but the police was not taking any action.

"Why mention it before the vacation bench? Mention it before the Registrar", the bench said.

Upon mentioning before the registrar, the petition has been listed on July 11, said the petitioner Abu Sohel.

The petition filed by Advocate Abu Sohel through Advocate Chand Qureshi had also sought directions for 'independent, credible and impartial investigation' into the incident.

It may be noted that the Top Court on Friday had refused to entertain Sharma's petition seeking clubbing of multiple FIRs registered against her for remarks on Prophet. The bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala had also slammed Sharma by remarking that she, with her "loose tongue", made irresponsible comments without thinking of the consequences.

Case Title: Abu Sohel v Nupur Sharma| Diary No 18477 of 2022
