Srinagar, Oct 12: Moderate Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today termed as “intolerable” the attack on senior Supreme Court advocate Prashant Bhushan and said it was unfortunate that nothing was done to prevent it.
“This is a sad and unfortunate incident that a respected Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan was attacked in his chamber,” Mirwaiz told PTI.
The separatist leader said the attack on Bhushan for speaking in favour of Kashmir was “height of intolerance”.
“These attacks are condemnable and we strongly condemn this attack. What is more unfortunate is that government has done nothing to prevent such attacks,” he said.
Activist Bhushan was roughed and beaten up by three youths suspected to belong to a right-wing group in his Supreme Court chamber for his advocacy of plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir. PTI
