Watch: Omar Abdullah booed at American University, called ‘war criminal’

Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah faced angry Kashmiri-American protesters on his way to give a talk at the University of Berkeley in the US on Thursday.

Protesters called him a “war criminal” and told him that they shall “drag him to the international criminal court”.

An American-Kashmiri tweeted:

Abdullah – in whose tenure as the CM of the State around 200 civilians were killed in pan-Kashmir uprisings by the government forces – was scheduled to give a talk at the University on ‘The Path Forward in Kashmir’.

However, many Kashmiris protested while saying that the former CM has “still blood of innocent Kashmiris on his hands”.

An online petition against the University’s invitation to Abdullah was also initiated by Kashmiris living abroad.
