Abdullah made a statement saying that 'Kashmiris were maha chors (big thieves)' on Monday.
Abdullah's statement didn't go down well with the members of the PDP who protested in the J&K Assembly and demanded an apology from him.
Meanwhile Abdullah immediately said that his statement was 'misinterpreted.'
This, however, is not the first time that Abdullah is finding himself embroiled in a controversy. Earlier also he made a controversial statement against women that drew him a lot of flak.
He had said that men were afraid to speak to women as they might end up in jail. He made the statement keeping in mind former judge Justice AK Ganguly's sexual harassment case. He said: "I am scared to talk to women these days.
I don't even want to keep a female secretary."
