Shah Faesal’s political career ends even before it could begin
2/16/2020 11:28:49 PM

JAMMU, Feb 16: Jammu and Kashmir administration slapping Public Safety Act (PSA) against the bureaucrat turned politician Shah Faesal is a clear message that no political leader with even slight inclination towards separatism will be tolerated.
Faesal, an IAS topper, had quit the government job last year and floated his own political party, Jammu and Kashmir Political Movement (JKPM). “Faesal taking a plunge into mainstream politics had triggered speculations that he enjoys full support of Centre and could be the next chief minister of J&K,” said an analyst.
Soon after Faesal joined politics, he made his intentions clear by terming Kashmir as an issue and it having internal and external dimensions. “He diverting from the path pushed his mentors sitting in New Delhi away from him,” the analyst added.
He said that even when Faesal was in the job, he stirred the Hornet’s nest on many occasions by poking his nWose into controversial issues. “Prior to him joining the politics, Faesal had expressed grief over the killing of Phd scholar turned militant, Manan Wani, in a gunfight with the security forces in north Kashmir. The government had taken a strong note of it and had asked him to explain his position,” the analyst recalled.
Faesal used to post “inflammatory and provocative” post on the social media. “On many occasions Faesal was warned by the government and was asked to mend his ways,” the analyst added.
An observer said that soon after Faesal launched his political party in Kashmir he started preaching soft separatism. The people who joined his party had “doubtful credentials” and many of them had a murky past. “In the very first rally which Faesal addressed after becoming a politician in his hometown Kupwara, he trained guns at the Central Government and claimed that as a bureaucrat he could do nothing for his people. He harped about resolution of Kashmir and holding talks with the so-called stakeholders,” the observer added.
He said, “Faesal tried to project himself as a mainstream politician with separatist leanings.”
Faesal joined hands with former legislator Sheikh Abdul Rashid alias Er Rashid, who is presently under detention at Tihar Jail in connection with the terror funding case. “Faesal in order to score brownie points over his opponents took many hasty decisions and just within a short span of time it became clear that another Kashmir centric politician with separatist leanings has come to fore,” the observer added.
Another analyst said that Shah Faesal’s political career seems to have ended even before it could start. “Slapping of PSA on him is a message to one and all that no nonsense will be tolerated,” he added.
