Kolkata, Nov.28 (ANI): Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad
(ABVP) workers on Sunday staged protests against All Party Hurriyat Conference
chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s visit to Kolkata.

Mirwaiz, was coming out of an auditorium after attending a
seminar on ‘Kashmir- A Way Out’ organised by the Centre for Peace and Progress.

ABVP members shouted slogans, displayed banners and hurled
eggs at Mirwaiz’s vehicle prompting police to arrest 25 of them.

The banners read ‘Bharat Ek Hai’ and ‘Mirwaiz Murdabad’.

The Hurriyat leader was whisked away by security personnel
as he moved out from the building after the seminar.

On Thursday, the Mirwaiz was beaten up by activists of the Bajrang
Dal, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Kashmiri
Pandits for his anti-Indian comments.

Speaking at a human rights seminar in Chandigarh, the
Mirwaiz had declaimed some pro-freedom slogans which provoked the audience.
