Chandigarh: J&K separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was heckled and roughed up at a Jammu & Kashmir seminar in Chandigrah on Thursday after he reportedly gave an anti-India speech.
A group of Kashmiri pandits and Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP) supporters, who were part of the audience, were allegedly behind the fracas.
Reacting to the incident, Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said, "I don't condone it. Don't have much to say, it's a reaction to Hurriyat's politics and policies."
In November, Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and writer Arundhati Roy were heckled at a Delhi seminar on the charge of sedition for their alleged anti-India statements.
