Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday condemned the alleged forcing of a Muslim to break his Ramzan fast by some Shiv Sena MPs at Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi.


The CM also sought to know how Bharatiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena would have reacted had a Muslim MP done a similar act.

"I would like to see how the BJP and Shiv Sena would have reacted if a Muslim MP had forced a non-Muslim vegetarian to eat meat. Shame on them," Omar wrote on micro-blogging site

Ruckus broke out in both Houses of Parliament on Wednesday over the report that some Shiv Sena parliamentarians had allegedly forced a Muslim catering supervisor on fast to eat a 'chapati' last week at the Sadan.

The MPs were apparently angry over not being served Maharashtrian food.
