Shandilya had demanded the arrest of the Lok Sabha member from Srinagar for speaking against the RSS, supporting Pakistan and insulting India with his remarks.
"Farooq is a big traitor in India and the central government should withdraw the Z plus security to him. I will award Rs 21 lakh to the person who cuts Farooq's tongue," he had said.
Farooq Abdullah had on 11 November said that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) belonged to Pakistan and "this won't change" no matter how many wars India and Pakistan fought.
"I tell them in plain terms — not only the people of India, but also to the world — that the part (of J&K) which is with Pakistan (PoK) belongs to Pakistan and this side to India. This won't change. Let them fight how many wars they want to. This won't change," he had said.
