"Chilli bombs? Pepper grenades? Pellet guns? Do the forces keep those only for protesting Kashmiris?" Omar wrote on twitter soon after Dera supporters resorted to violence in the wake of the court verdict.
At least thirteen people died and scores others were injured after Dera followers went on a rampage in Haryana.
Omar also expressed surprise over the statement made by a senior security force official about the situation in the affected areas.
