Former Chief Minister and National Conference Vice President, Omar Abdullah, reacting to the Bulandshahr incident where mob attacked and killed policemen over allegations of cow slaughter, stated that the killers would be eulogized by the ruling party as ‘heroes’, while in Kashmir, such people are called ‘terrorists’.

In a tweet, Omar said, while sharing a media report: “In Kashmir people who kill cops & snatch weapons are called terrorists. In UP the ruling party will fete & eulogize these killers as heroes. ”

The mob in Bulandshahr violence was allegedly led by Yogesh Raj, an activist of the right wing group Bajrang Dal, who had complained to the police about cow slaughter after carcasses were found scattered in a forest, NDTV reported.

The police, trying to placate the protesters, came under attack and fired shots in the air as the situation rapidly spiraled out of control, reported NDTV.
