Shah Faesal Takes A Dig At ‘War-Mongering’ Indian News Channels


SRINAGAR — Indian Administra­tive Services (IAS) topper Shah Faesal on Friday took a dig at the India media over the coverage of Pakistan elections.

Expressing his dismay over a section of Indian media, the IAS topper from Kashmir called the ap­proach of the media as unfortunate over their criticism of the win and the election victory speech of the cricketer-turned-politician Khan.

“India is being shamed (interna­tionally) by (a section of) Indian me­dia. The neighbouring country has elected a new PM, he is talking about reconciliation, he is talking about change, but the loudmouths on this side are ranting to ensure that the hostilities continue. Unfortunate,” Shah Faesal wrote on Twitter.

In reaction to Faesal’s tweet, the ‘Republic TV’ which is known for spewing venom against Paki­stan as well people of Kashmir came up with a story titling: “Con­troversial J&K IAS officer Shah Faesal backs Imran Khan.”

Instead of responding to Faesal on the issue he had raised, Repub­lic targeted him about this tweet on ‘Rapistan.

In a series of tweets from ‘Re­public’, Shah Faesal was asked to tweet against rape incidents of United States as well that has giv­en him a scholarship. “ Mr. Faesal, given the fact that you have re­ceived a US-sponsored Fulbright scholarship, will you also speak about the rate of rapes against women in America as part of your ‘Rapistan’ tweets or limit your dec­larations only to India?”

“Mr. Faesal, when as per an American Organisation called RAINN, every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted. Will you tweet about USA being an unsafe place for women?”
