Kolkata: The chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was greeted by another protest on Sunday at a seminar in Kolkata.
The protest was carried out by the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) workers. Fifteen to twenty BJP workers also have been arrested.
Police sources have been also deployed in large numbers at the seminar venue. The incident comes just three days after Mirwaiz was heckled by Kashmiri Pandits and activists of right wing Hindu groups at a seminar in Chandigarh.
The separatist leader called Chandigrah incident as unfortunate. He has condemned the civil society for not speaking for him.
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.
