Heckling in US just tamasha, says Omar

Srinagar, Apr 20  Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today said he had a “great session” at University of California in the US and termed an attempt to heckle him a tamasha by just four people.

He was referring to a video in which some Kashmiri-Americans are shown confronting him as he was leaving the venue after making his speech.

The protesters accused Omar Abdullah of playing dirty politics and threatened to take him to the International Criminal Court.

The working president of opposition National Conference, was invited by the university to speak on The path forward in Kashmir .

I had a great session at @UCBerkeley & dont let anyone tell you otherwise. FOUR hecklers (in an audience of 150+) who waited till the event concluded to make YouTube videos of themselves cant take away from an excellent Q&A session there, he wrote on Twitter.

The National Conference leader said he was looking forward to the organizers uploading the video of the entire session.

Im looking forward to the organisers putting the video of the entire session online so that the people whove seen the short tamasha can see how much substantial stuff happened before that, he said.

The NC leader said heckling by four persons was not a big deal.

And lastly Ive (I have) never claimed to be universally loved or even liked so if 4 (four) people in such a large audience make their dislike known its really not such a big deal at all. At least no one threw eggs or a shaving foam pie at me, he said.
