India-Pakistan Dialogues Only Solution To Settle Kashmir Issue: Shah Faesal

Published

India and Pakistan should hold dialogue to settle Kashmir issue as it is a political problem that cannot be ended by development packages, India’s Former IAS officer Shah Faesal said.

India ‘Atrocities’ in Jammu and Kashmir – Pakistan Demands Investigation

Shah Faesal emphasised saying, “When the politicians are asked what the issue is, they say Kashmir is a problem. Give them monetary packages. Some portion of the 2004 package is yet to be spent. Do we only need money? Is Kashmiri a beggar? We want to tell them that Kashmir is a political problem”.

Faesal said India and Pakistan should sit together to resolve the Kashmir issue. “They should not play with the lives of Kashmiri people by throwing money around,” he said.

Faesal, who resigned from the government service in January last month, was addressing his first public rally in his home district of Kupwara, North Kashmir. He said the situation in Kashmir over the past few years forced him to be the voice of the unheard people.

“While I raised my voice against atrocities being committed on different minorities in the country, the situation in Kashmir over the past few years forced me to raise my voice. We saw our PhD scholars were martyred, there is no one to talk about the educated youth. Politicians are holding to their chair and minting money while Kashmiris are making sacrifices for their political rights. There is no one taking note of this,” Faesal said.

The former Indian IAS officer likened his tenure in the IAS to a jail term. “To tell you honestly, I spent the last 10 years in jail. During these 10 years, in many ways, I tried to serve my people and succeeded as well”.

Recently, Faesal launched a crowdfunding campaign for his political initiative. He said: “The atmosphere of corruption in the state was sucking the blood of everyone”. He also stated that the political scenario in the state was coming in its way of being self-reliant.

“I was head of the power department. A company offered Rs 13,000 crore loan for exploiting the hydroelectric potential of the state but the political situation of our state is such that we are not being allowed to be self-reliant in terms of our economy,” he added.
