Let's pray for those who lost their lives and their eyesight in ongoing turmoil in Kashmir: Shah Faesal, IAS

By on Sunday, July 17, 2016
Mr Shah Faesal’s photograph comparing with Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani’s pictures, angered to Mr Faesal who has stated that he will resign. Mr Shah Faesal rebuked the media through his facebook post. The successful youths’ photos of the valley and their work’s -- both were collated on media with Burhan Wani's status.

"By juxtaposing 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 Indian state can manage.
Personal vulnerability apart, the very fact of becoming a part of a ridiculous debate is something which has disturbed me very much. 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.
I am adding to what my younger colleague Yasin Chaudhary had said earlier in his Facebook post. ZeeNews Aaj Tak TimesNow and NewsX are not going to tell you the truth about Kashmir. Please mind your head.
No Government would want to hurt it's people and when a state kills and maims it's own citizens, it's self-injury and self-decimation of the worst sort, it makes the body-politic bleed as well. So no Government can distance itself from the pain of it's people and all out efforts are being made to contain this crisis and reach out to youth. It is going to take time.
Till then we have to steer safe from spoilers who want to set Kashmir valley on fire just for the sake of TRP.
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."

Shah Faesal, 33, hails from Kupwara, Jammu and Kashmir. He had qualified Civil Service Examination held by Union Public Service Commission during year 2009. Mr Faesal is director at education department Jammu and Kashmir.
Mr faesal's interview here with media has some excerpts after he became topper of civil service exam.
My success has broken a stereotype about my commu­nity. I hope I have set a prece­dent for the people of my State and helped inspire more Kash­miris to appear for civils.
I would like to serve my state by reducing the gap between the people and admin­istration. I have been a victim of insur­gency and understand Kash­mir’s problems. My father (Gulam Rasool Shah), a school teacher, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in 2002, just three days before my pre-medical exam.
Mr faesal wrote in his post, “The national media tagged my picture with a terrorist tried to divide the people. He has written that when Kashmir mourns over the deaths, the alienation among Kashmiris is being poured into the news rooms.”
Faesal further wrote, “I have been tormented with the running meaningless talks in media. Had I become an IAS that one day I were a part of media disinformation?” He has further written that if the media run so, he will resign.
Faesal has written his status that we should sideline from those people who are ready to burn Kashmir valley for gaining TRP only. We should pray for those who have lost their lives and eyes in this violence.
