Bureaucrat turned politician Shah Faesal peddles victimhood on his birthday, Twitter gifts him a reality check

However, the attempt to score political goals by playing victimhood for himself and Kashmiri youths using the birthday as an excuse did not quite work for Faesal.

Former IAS officer Shah Faesal, who had called India ‘Rapistan’ and had recently launched a political party as a joint venture with JNU’s freelance protestor Shehla Rashid, attempted to play victimhood on his birthday in a strange way.

Faesal, who had announced soon after his party launch that his party will not contest the Lok Sabha elections, had informed on Twitter that it is his birthday. While most people just say that it is the birthday or post images of their birthday celebrations with loved ones, Faesal did it in a weirdly political way.

He declared that he is turning 36 but not many youths in Kashmir get that privilege, hinting that most youths in Kashmir do not reach the age of 36.

However, the attempt to score political goals by playing victimhood for himself and Kashmiri youths using the birthday as an excuse did not quite work for Faesal. Twitter users soon reminded him that he is trying to peddle a false narrative and Kashmir is one of the topmost states in India in terms of life expectancy at all ages, not just 36.

Journalist Akhilesh Sharma shared a 2016 news report that had the Registrar General of India’s data on how Jammu and Kashmir had replaced Kerala as the state with the highest life expectancy at most age groups.

Faesal was also reminded that for ‘normal’ people like law-abiding citizens, Jammu and Kashmir’s life expectancy score is among India’s best.

Faesal had been in the news when he had asked for a Nobel Prize for Pakistani PM Imran Khan. He is also a great admirer of both Imran Khan and Arvind Kejriwal and had stated in the past that he gets inspired by them.

On behalf of team OpIndia, we wish Shah Faesal a very happy birthday and pray to god that he lives a long life, as most people in Jammu and Kashmir do.
