NEW DELHI: Shah Faesal, the IAS topper who quit the services for politics, has been placed under house arrest. He was reportedly about to fly abroad when he was arrested in Delhi. He has been sent back to Kashmir.
Shah Faesal has been critical about the government’s move to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir and split it into two union territories.
Yesterday, he warned in a Twitter post that Kashmir “needed a non-violent political mass movement for restoration of political rights”.
“Kashmir will need a long, sustained, non-violent political mass movement for restoration of the political rights. Abolition of Article 370 has finished the mainstream.
Constitutionalists are gone. So you can either be a stooge or a separatist now. No shades of grey,” Shah Faesal, 35, tweeted on Tuesday.
Mr Faesal, an MBBS, quit IAS in January to protest against what he called “unabated killings” in Kashmir and the “marginalization of Indian Muslims”.
“As of now I have quit the service. What I am going to do hereafter also depends on what people of Kashmiri want me to do. More so the youth,” he wrote, seeking ideas from people before he took a final decision on his future.
