Srinagar: Kashmiri IAS officer, Shah Faesal, on Friday came down heavily on some sections of media for comparing himself with killed Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Burhan Wani. Faesal said that when a state kills and maims its own citizens, it’s self-injury and self- decimation of the worst sort.
Faesel, who also topped the IAS exam wrote on his Facebook wall that by juxtapose my photos with the images of a slain militant commander, a section of national media has once again fallen back upon its conventional savagery that cashes on falsehoods, divides people and creates more hatred.
“At a moment when Kashmir is mourning its dead, the propaganda and provocation being dished out from red and blue newsrooms is breeding more alienation and anger in Kashmir than what the Indian state can manage,” the IAS officer wrote, adding, “We have to steer safe from spoilers who want to set Kashmir valley on fire just for the sake of TRP.”
“Have I joined IAS to do a job or to become a part of your sadistic propaganda machine? In fact when I qualified this exam I never thought of spending my whole life scratching the desk and if this nonsense around me continues, I might prefer to resign sooner than later”, wrote a visibly angry Faesal.
“Let’s pray for those who lost their lives and their eyesight in the ongoing turmoil in Kashmir and stand by one another in this moment of truth. I didn’t have net access all this while and today, once I saw my timeline, I realised it was the time to speak up. Inalillahi wa Ina-ilaihi rajioon (We all come from the almighty and all of us will return to the almighty),” Faesal added....
