farooqSRINAGAR : National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday faced protests in Jammu and Kashmir’s Hazratbal, days after he shouted ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ at late former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s prayer meeting. People who were present for Eid prayer at the masjid booed at Abdullah when he entered.

People demanded that Abdullah be removed from the Masjid. They also flashed shoes at the former CM and shouted “Shame, Shame”.
Farooq Abdullah on Monday heaped praises on late Atal Bihari Vajpayee saying that he was the “king of everyone’s heart”.

Speaking at the all-party prayer meet, organised to pay tribute to Bharat Ratna Vajpayee, Abdullah said, “Atal Bihari Vajpayee was not the Wazire-e-Azam (head of state) now but was the king of everyone’s heart. He captured every Indians’ heart not with power but with love.I don’t think anyone had a heart as large as Atal Bihari. He never discriminated against any people on the basis of caste, ethnicity, religion or language.”
Abdullah culminated his eloquent speech by slogans of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Jai Hind’.
“The country has to change. I come here with a message of peace and harmony,” Abdullah told Media . “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,” added Abdullah.(With Agency Inputs ).
