New Delhi: The youth wing of BJP attacked Kashmiri separatist Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umer Farooq's car when he was entering Foreign Correspondent's Club to attend a seminar.

As the news about his presence at the seminar came out, activists of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha assembled outside the venue and shouted slogans against Mirwaiz.

Shouting slogans like "Bharat Mata ki Jai" and "Vande Mataram", the demonstrators hurled eggs, water bottles and a few stones at the SUV of the Mirwaiz, damaging the windscreen of the vehicle.

Nearly one company (120 personnel) of CRPF and Delhi Police personnel escorted the Mirwaiz into the venue of the seminar.

"We are here to protest the Mirwaiz's presence. He should not be allowed to participate in any programme as he furthers anti-India agenda," BJYM activist Anil Sharma said, while he was being detained.

Some of the youths, who were being whisked away by CRPF, told the personnel of para-military force that it was ironical that they (CRPF) were trying to save a person who had been instrumental in tarnishing their image in the Kashmir Valley.

This was the third attack on the Mirwaiz in the last five days. Earlier, he was attacked on Sunday by members of BJP's student wing who hurled eggs at his vehicle and displayed banners.On Thursday also, the Mirwaiz and another separatist leader Bilal Lone were heckled by activists of Hindu organizations during a seminar in Chandigarh.
