Srinagar: Justifying his reasons to resign from the bureaucracy, IAS topper, Shah Faesal Wednesday said that the ‘unabated’ killings in Kashmir and the failure of the Union Govt in starting any reach-out to Kashmir were the reasons that compelled him to resign.
“To protest against the unabated killings in Kashmir and lack of any sincere reach-out from the Union Government, the marginalization and invisibilization of around 200 million Indian Muslims at the hands of Hindutva forces reducing them to second-class citizens, insidious attacks on the special status of the J&K State and growing culture of intolerance and hate in the mainland India in the name of hypernationalism, I have decided to resign from the Indian Administrative Service,” he wrote on Facebook.
“I wish to remind the regime of the day that subversion of public institutions like RBI, CBI and NIA has the potential to decimate the Constitutional edifice of this Country and it needs to be stopped. I wish to reiterate that voices of reason in this country cannot be muzzled for long and the environment of siege will need to end if we wish to usher in true democracy,” he added, while saying that he will be addressing a press conference on Friday.
