Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today called Anti-Terrorist Front India (ATFI) chief Viresh Shandilya "an idiot" after he offered Rs 21 lakh to anyone who cuts off National Conference president Farooq Abdullah's tongue for his alleged pro-Pakistan remarks.
"Guy doesn’t have two nickels to rub together & he is offering 21 Lakhs. Idiot!" Omar wrote on his Twitter page.
Earlier today, Shandilya announced a bounty of Rs 21 lakh prize for cutting Farooq Abdullah’s tongue, saying he has “insulted” the country with his pro-Pakistan remarks and was speaking “against” the RSS.
Shandilya also demanded immediate investigation and arrest of the Srinagar MP.
“Farooq Abdullah has been speaking against the RSS and supporting Pakistan and insulted India in his recent remarks,” he said in a statement in Chandigarh.
“Farooq is a big traitor in India and the central government should withdraw Z plus security from him. I will award Rs 21 lakh to the person who cuts Farooq’s tongue,” he added.
Farooq had on November 11 said that PoK belonged to Pakistan and "this won't change" no matter how many wars India and Pakistan fought.
"I tell them in plain terms -- not only the people of India, but also to the world -- that the part (of J&K) which is with Pakistan (PoK) belongs to Pakistan and this side to India. This won't change. Let them fight how many wars they want to. This won't change," he had said.
