Srinagar: Director School Education Kashmir and the first Kashmiri who topped in civil services examinations Shah Faesal on Friday was peeved at Indian news channels for drawing his comparison with slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant commander Burhan Wani.
Faisal, who threatened to resign if the “non-sense” continues said, “when I qualified this exam I never thought of spending my whole life scratching the desk and if this nonsense around me continues, I might prefer to resign sooner than later.”
“By juxtaposing my photos with the images of a slain militant commander, a section of national media has once again fallen back upon its conventional savagery that cashes on falsehoods, divides people and creates more hatred,” he wrote on Facebook.
He said while Kashmir is mourning its dead, “the propaganda and provocation being dished out from red and blue newsrooms is breeding more alienation and anger in Kashmir than what Indian state can manage.”
“Personal vulnerability apart, the very fact of becoming a part of a ridiculous debate is something which has disturbed me very much. Have I joined IAS to do a job or to become a part of your sadistic propaganda machine? I am adding to what my younger colleague Yasin Chaudhary had said earlier in his Facebook post. ZeeNews Aaj Tak TimesNow and NewsX are not going to tell you the truth about Kashmir. Please mind your head,” he added.
