A woman protester called Omar and his father Farooq Abdullah as ” war criminal”, stating that they would take him to the International Court of Justice.

However, Omar, who is the working president of Jammu and Kashmir’s oldest political party National Conference, said that out of over 150 audience, four hecklers waited till the end of the event to make “YouTube videos.”

“I had a great session at @UCBerkeley & don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. FOUR hecklers (in an audience of 150+) who waited till the event concluded to make YouTube videos of themselves can’t take away from an excellent Q&A session there,” Omar tweeted while sharing the pictures of the event.
