After sliding into irrelevance, former IAS officer-turned-politician Shah Faesal on Sunday attempted to incite violence and threatened that he would not celebrate Eid until ‘the last bit of insult is avenged and undone’.
A frustrated Shah Faesal threatened to seek revenge and warned the people of India that he would not celebrate the Eid until he avenged the ‘insult’ meted out to him following the historic abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories.
“There is no Eid. Kashmiris across the world are mourning the illegal annexation of their land. There shall be no Eid till everything that has been stolen and snatched since 1947 is returned back. No Eid till the last bit of insult is avenged and undone,” said Faesal.

Interestingly, the revengeful statements of Shah Faesal come just after Former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram had praised him while trying to insinuate that the abolition of Article 370 was “the biggest betrayal” perpetrated against the Kashmiris by the Indian government.
As Congress is parroting the narrative of Pakistan by questioning the Indian government on the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir, elements like Shah Faesal seems to have found a new opportunity to gain some foothold, by fear-mongering and spreading negativity.
With the situation in Jammu and Kashmir returning to normalcy, the ‘liberal-secular’ media, Pakistan backed propagandists, some political parties in the country were found to be upset. The cabal had tried to incite the people of J&K making them believe that abrogation of Article 370 was against their rights and goodwill. The liberal industry was expecting some blowback by Kashmiris in response to the abrogation of the unjust article and bifurcation of the state.
However, the people of the newly formed UT have perceived abrogation and bifurcation as a golden opportunity to become a part of India’s growth story, and are now welcoming the Government of India’s (GoI) decision.
