According to reports, National Conference MLA Muhammad Akbar Lone said he was a Muslim and his sentiments were hurt when BJP lawmakers chanted slogans against Pakistan. Speaking to the reporters over the matter, Akbar Lone stated that he started shouting "Pakistan Zindabad" after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs started shouting "Pakistan Murdabad".

Lone, however, defended his action, saying he was "provoked" by the BJP to raise slogans in favour of Pakistan. "It is my personal view, I said it in the house and I don't think anyone should have a problem with it" said MLA Akbar Lone on shouting "Pakistan Zindabad".Later, the speaker expunged his remarks.

"Yes, I said it".

Earlier, the House was adjourned amid chaos over Speaker's controversial remarks in which he accused Rohingyas for the attack on army's Sajwan camp on the outskirts of Jammu.

The Speaker expunged his comments but reiterated later outside the Assembly that the presence of Rohingya refugees in Jammu was a cause for concern.

As the pre-dawn attack on the Army camp was carried out by the militants in Sujwan area of Jammu, and the encounter was going on, the reactions coming in from political parties have created more news.

The NC condemned the slogans, terming them unacceptable.

Earlier, NC spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu said entire party has the clear stand over Lone remarks which are unacceptable to the party.

But his party has distanced itself from his slogans, which came even as the operation to flush out terrorists from the Sunjwan camp was underway.

Meanwhile, former chief minister Omar Abdullah said the focus should remain on the growing insecurity in J&K, "rather than diverting issues". "The party disowns and condemns his remark", Mattu tweeted.

Meanwhile, NC Working President said that focus needs to be on the attack and not distracted by slogans.

The MLA should not forget that he belongs to a party that rejected the two-nation theory.
