Shoes hurled at Farooq Abdullah in Srinagar for chanting “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”

Former J&K Chief Minister and President of the National Conference, Farooq Abdullah was heckled and shoes were hurled at him as he went to attend the congregational prayers at the Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar on the occasion of Eid forcing him to leave the prayer ground.

Abdullah was heckled even before the imam leading the congregational prayers could begin the Eid sermon at the Hazratbal shrine.

People were apparently angry with Abdullah for chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Jai Hind’ while paying tribute to the late former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee at the all-party prayer meeting on Monday. Abdullah had also called Vajpayee the “king of everyone’s heart”.

“The country has to change. I come here with a message of peace and harmony,” Abdullah told Zee News. “There are people who will oppose the peace. But we have to keep on trying. For how long will the people of my state suffer? The entire country is progressing. We need to progress too,” he added.
