A former bureaucrat of Kashmir, Shah Faesal, today launched his political party “Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement” (JKPM) at an event in Srinagar.
He had resigned under protest from his Indian Administrative Service (IAS) post in January, saying Muslims had been reduced to second-class citizens in India. He had resigned citing “unabated killings” of Kashmiris by Indian security forces in Kashmir among other factors.
Faesal, 36, also had criticized the Indian government headed by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi, accusing it of subverting public institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and the National Investigation Agency.
According to JKPM, the party – which is expected to contest the Lok Sabha election – will pursue peaceful resolution of the Kashmir problem as per the will and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) State.
Faesal admires Pakistan PM Imran Khan, and earlier this month (March 2019) he recommended the the name of Imran Khan for Nobel Peace Prize for saving South Asia from a nuclear catastrophe when the tension increased between India and Pakistan – two nuclear-armed nations – after the Pulwama terror attack.
Earlier, the 2010-batch topper of the civil services exam Faesal had launched a crowdfunding campaign for “clean politics and corruption-free administration” in Jammu and Kashmir.
