Srinagar : Activist Shehla Rashid while reacting to the slapping of Public Safety Act on former colleague Shah Faesal has said that he didn’t deserve it.
Rashid who quit electoral politics shortly after joining it while taking to her Twitter handle said, ” He didn’t deserve this. ” She tweeted.
She was reacting to a news item regarding Faesal who was booked under stringent public safety act.
In May last year Rashid made her foray into active politics by joining the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples’ Movement, launched by former IAS officer Shah Faesal.
However in October Rashid quit politics.
She blamed the announcement of Block Development Council elections for “compelling” her to make this move. The Centre, she said, was trying to portray “normalcy” to the world by holding these polls and that she “cannot be party to the exercise of legitimising the brutal suppression of my people”.
