New Delhi: Returning from a private visit to Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Yasin Malik on Saturday faced a protest from some right-wing activists, demanding his arrest for sharing a stage along with 26/11 accused Hafiz Saeed.

"There were protests outside the airport after Malik arrived but nothing untoward happened," a senior police officer told IANS.

Malik defended his position.

"I staged protest against the hanging of (parliament attack convict) Afzal Guru. It did not amount to any violence," he told reporters outside the airport.

According to police sources, the separatist leader arrived in Delhi at about 7.30 p.m. He is expected to stay overnight and is likely to travel to Srinagar on Sunday.

Malik was seen sharing the dais with Jamaat-e-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, wanted for his involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. The duo were photographed at a sit-in protest in Islamabad following the hanging of Afzal Guru.

This created a flutter in the country and led to demands for cancellation of his Indian passport. No case has been registered against Malik so far either under the Passport Act or the Indian Penal Code.
