Shah Faesal resigns against ‘unabated killings in Kashmir, marginalization of Indian Muslims’
Srinagar: The 2009 topper of the UPSC civil services Shah Faesal on Wednesday resigned “to protest against the unabated killings in Kashmir and marginalization and invisiblization of around 200 million Indian Muslims at the hands of Hindutva forces reducing them to second-class citizens.”
In his ace book post, Shah Faesal also cited lack of any sincere reach-out from the Union Government, insidious attacks on the special identity of the J&K State and growing culture of intolerance and hate in the mainland India in the name of “hypernationalism”. “I have decided to resign from Indian Administrative Service,” he said, adding, “I wish to remind the regime of the day that subversion of public institutions like RBI, CBI and NIA has the potential to decimate the Constitutional edifice of this Country and it needs to be stopped. I wish to reiterate that voices of reason in this country cannot be muzzled for long and the environment of siege will need to end if we wish to usher in true democracy.” He also expressed thanks to his family, friends and well-wishers for supporting him “in this amazing journey in IAS.” “One of my important tasks here-after will be train and guide aspiring civil servants to help them in achieving this dream,” Shah Faesal said.
He said he will be addressing a press conference on Friday to share his future plans.
“I will look forward to your support and blessings in this new mission.”
