Angry people hoot at Farooq Abdullah in Srinagar » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, August 22 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the pro-India National Conference’s (NC) President, Farooq Abdullah, had to face angry people at Dargah Hazratbal during Eid prayers on August 22.

Before the prayers, as the Imam spoke about Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution which guarantees special rights and privileges to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir, Farooq Abdullah walked in. People started booing at him, with those present for the Eid prayer demanding his removal from the Masjid.

With the intervention of the Masjid Committee, Abdullah prayed at the Masjid but did not wait for the Khutbah (sermon).

As soon as the prayer finished, Abdullah got up to leave. Some protestors took their shoes in their hands while shouting ‘Shame Shame’.

The anger comes after Abdullah was seen shouting pro-India slogans at an event.

Occupied Kashmir has come together across the political divide to protest against the attempts of BJP government in New Delhi to repeal Article 35-A, which if done, would allow Indian citizens to settle in Kashmir that will result in change in the demographic composition of the territory.
