IAS topper Bureaucrat-turned-politician, Shah Faesal has said that Kashmir is an integral part of India added I have always been pro-India.
while commenting on tweet he wrote, “Once again I repeat Kashmir is an integral part of India.)
In another tweet he said “Friends let’s sort it out for once. I have always been pro-India. But now I am single-mindedly, shamelessly, helplessly and unapologetically pro-India. I stick to my side. It is a long story and I have to tell this story one day. But this is how it is going to be. Peace.”
Earlier Shah Faesal called his interview given to BBC in past a ‘mistake’, “One would have to be far more careful with words when talking about India’s internal matters to a global audience.”
Faesal, once a critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is now seen praising his work. He says that I get to know and learn a lot from the Prime Minister’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’. In a way, you get the opportunity to connect indirectly. Some effort, some passion, some passion to do something for the country, all of them inspire me, fill me with energy.
Shah Faesal earlier shared a video of Prime Minister Modi interacting with Covid vaccination beneficiaries in Varanasi, and wrote, “This is more than just a vaccination program. It’s good governance + human capital formation + nation building + India assuming global leadership as a Jagat Guru”.
Significantly, when the article-370 was removed from Jammu and Kashmir in the year 2019, Shah Faisal criticized it severely. He was then detained at Delhi Airport.
Shah Faesal resigned from the Indian Administrative Services in the year 2019 and formed the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement political party. But he resigned from it last year.
Now there is talk of making Shah Faisal an advisor to the Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh.
