Shah Faesal was in the civil services having topped the exams in 2010 and was posted in Jammu and Kashmir.

He has mentioned on his facebook page : “To protest against the unabated killings in Kashmir and lack of any sincere reach-out from the Union government; the marginalization and invisiblisation of around 200 million Indian Muslims at the hands of Hindutva forces reducing them to second-class citizens; insidious attacks on the special identity of the J&K state and growing culture of intolerance and hate in the mainland India in the name of hyper-nationalism, I have decided to resign from IAS”.


Ansari, a free lance journalist had interviewed Shah Faesal at a felicitation program at MIT (Maharashtra Institute of Technology) Pune for having cracked the UPSC exams and scoring the 1st rank . Ansari recalls the meeting with Faesal as one filled with positivity and saw in him a promising youth icon who was keen to bring the much needed change in the community.

As Shah Faesal has shown an interest to join politics, Omar Abdullah has welcomed him in the fold, perhaps it is an indication to join National Conference.

Shah Faesal has called for a press meet on Friday,11th.
