New Delhi: Shah Faesal, who quit Indian Administrative Service recently, got trolled on social media after he supported the resolution by the Pakistan parliament that pitched for Nobel peace prize for Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Former IAS officer from Jammu and Kashmir tweeted, “A Nobel Peace Prize to Imran Khan could drastically change the way Pakistan operates in the South Asia region. IK has already raised the bar for leadership in the region, and the Prize could encourage him to further nurture the India-Pak relationship. He deserves the prize.”
Twitterati slammed Shah Faesal for his brazen endorsement of Pakistan’s views on Imran Khan’s grandstanding after he announced the release of Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who ejected the MiG 21 fighter jet just before it crashed into PoK and was captured by the authorities.
Here are some of the reactions to his tweet.
Faesal even responded to one of the tweets saying it was a harmless comment.
Under the severe diplomatic pressure by India, Pakistan handed over the IAF pilot two days after he was captured. However, amid tensions between India and Pakistan, Imran Khan said he had decided to release Indian pilot as a peace gesture.
Shah Faesal has been full of praise for Imran Khan and went on to call him someone who truly deserved Nobel peace prize thereby ignoring the fact that Pakistan failed to take any action against terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) that carried a suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir which killed 40 CRPF jawans. The Pakistan-based terror outfit had claimed the responsibility of the terror attack and its chief Masood Azhar, according to Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, is in Pakistan.
Some of the comments in response to his tweet highlighted that despite being an IAS topper and having served in top position of the government of India, Faesal has been going against the national sentiments at this crucial juncture when nation needs to speak in one voice against Pakistani bluff on what happened after preemptive air strike by India against JeM terror training camp inside Pakistan.
