An India-Pakistan peace conference on Monday turned ugly after a group of Kashmiri Pandits protested against the presence of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik at the event.

As Malik rose to speak on ‘Issue of Autonomy: Kashmir and Balochistan’, the group started hurling abuses at him, calling him “a rapist and a murderer”.

Blaming Malik for mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley, the protestors demanded that he should not be allowed to speak in such peace conferences.

This is the second time in the recent past when a group of migrant Kashmiri Pandits belonging to different organisations have attacked Malik in Delhi.

On November 7 last year, the JKLF leader had to face the ire of Kashmiri Pandits at an event.

Malik appeared unfazed. “Let them prove the allegations. I am prepared to be hanged,” he said in presence of his Pakistani wife Mushaal Malick.
