Prophet row: Gautam Gambhir comes out in support of suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma

Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma gets the support of BJP MP and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir 

BJP MP and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Sunday extended support to suspended party leader Nupur Sharma.

Sharma has received threats following her remarks about Prophet Mohammad.

Gambhir took to Twitter and hit out at "secular liberals" for their "silence" on the 'sickening display of hatred and death threats throughout the country against a woman who has apologised is surely deafening'.

Sharma's remarks made in a TV debate last month had drawn condemnation from many Islamic countries and sparked protests from Muslims in different parts of India.

The BJP had suspended her in its bid to defuse the row which, however, continues to simmer, with some issuing death threats to her.
