Last month, Nupur Sharma allegedly made remarks against the religion during a television news debate on the Gyanvapi issue.

Rajasthan Police, late Tuesday night, arrested the Khadim of Ajmer Dargah, Salman Chishti, over provocative statements against suspended BJP Spokesperson, Nupur Sharma.

In a video that was posted across several social media platforms, the cleric is seen calling for the beheading of Nupur Sharma. Chishti allegedly offered his house to anyone who brings him the now-suspended BJP spokesperson’s head for her remark on Prophet Mohammad.

An FIR was registered Monday night after a complaint was filed over the video clip.

In the video, Chishti can be heard saying, “You wanted to send a message to all Muslim countries. I am saying this from Ajmer, Rajasthan and this message is from Huzur Khwaja Baba ka Darbar.”
