Why was #ShahFaesal fleeing to #Turkey?

For Jamat-e-Liberal folks/peacefuls, Faesal is a legend

First #Kashmiri IAS topper & an #Harvard alumni

He quit everything to bring peace, prosperity & dev to #Kashmir by starting a political party!
Shah Faesal went to attend Mason program in Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)

Prestigious program attended by many politicians from around the world

Half of class becomes PMs, Prez, ministers after they go bk

US senators come there

Top NGOs, UN positions are given to HKS fellows
Why govt sponsored him to Harvard if they knew his allegiance and spent 1crore+?

Claimed he got Fullbright scholarship, but that only pays for travel/boarding

Tuition fees of $80000 is very expensive & fully-paid leave from job with no agreement to work after coming back

Shah Faesal's father was killed by militants when he was 19. He became a doctor, topped IAS. Is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard. Joined politics to serve people better. Believed in Indian democracy & inspired Kashmiris. Today he's *locked up* & called *anti national*

India, 2019
Shah Faesal is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard, visits it regularly. Was going there when he was detained at Delhi airport. Sanghis said he was fleeing the country, meeting "terrorists" at Turkey (he had a connecting flight) etc. Now Harvard has written to Modi seeking his release
#ShahFaesal was a doctor, IAS, politician, scholar, motivator. He father was killed by militants yet he chose the pen instead of a gun. He chose compassion over revenge. This man is a legend in Kashmir. Today he's called 'anti national' and we wonder why Kashmiris distrust India?

Mom's bhakti is having a reconfiguration crisis.

"They have arrested #ShahFaesal. Pakistan agents are in IAS also these days."

I be like you met @Shehla_Rashid at the wedding reception, right? Her colleague.

"They seemed nice people.... are you also tukde tukde gang?"
@Shehla_Rashid I think mom expects the "tukde tukde gang" from TV to be like Dawood Gang, Chhota Rajan gang, etc. (perils of being a bambaiiya?)

Mom, anyone who disagrees with govt is tukde-tukde gang.

"But they arrest tukde-tukde gang"

Me: Welcome to new India. Hope you enjoy your flight.
@Shehla_Rashid She be like "but what if they arrest you?"

I be like same as what happens to anyone who gets arrested. Life will get disrupted.

"What about me?"

You can find some nice RSS ashram for old people.

"What about kid?"

Raghu will take him to the new Switzerland - Tamil Nadu :p
