The BJP on Sunday suspended its national spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal after their alleged derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad, as it sought to defuse a raging row over the issue.

She unconditionally withdrew her remarks that she had made on Prophet Muhammed stating, "The (Gyanvapi) Shivling was ridiculed by comparing it to roadside signs and poles in Delhi."
