Srinagar: Shah Faesal who made headlines on Wednesday following his resignation from Administrative services has asked youth to come forward and show up in Srinagar.

Soon after the topper of 2010 IAS batch announced his resignation from the services a barrage of posts and comments both praising and condemning him filled the social media.


While some praised him for the move, others just termed him yet another ‘collaborator’ of the state.

Taking note of the social media activities involving his resignation, the Harvard returnee yet again took to his Facebook and asked people  to come forward to meet him in Srinagar adding that his future  will be decided by real people and not by comments and posts on social media.

“It has been a storm of abuse and adulation. Hundreds and thousands of people reacted to my resignation in hundreds and thousands of ways. I totally expected this.” Faesal wrote.

He said that his future will be shaped by what Kashmiri people want him to do,“As of now I have quit the service.  What I am going to do hereafter also depends on what people of Kashmiri want me to do. More so the youth.”

He further said that he has an idea and that he wanted to take note of other ideas before taking a final decision,“I have an idea how I can do it.  I am sure you have ideas too and you want me to factor those ideas in before I take a final decision.” Faesal wrote on Facebook.

Adding that his choice of politics won’t be decided by  Facebook likes or comments,“If you are ready to come out of Fb/Twitter and show up in Srinagar tomorrow, we could think this through together. My choice of politics will be decided by real people not fb likes and comments.

“I will share the venue details after I know who all are coming. Let’s see out of those hundreds and thousands how many are ready to walk the talk.  Type yes in the comments below. Don’t tell me later that I should have asked the youth first.  Thanks.” Faesal stated.
